Real Estate ads – magic or deceptive?

By ubu - 4 June 2012 24

Hey rioters,  have a look at these Allhomes photos for the following properties.  Notice anything unusual?  Such as the same “fire” photoshopping its way into each fireplace?

24 Dugan Street Deakin 2600  Lounge room photo

104 Mugga Way Red Hill 2603, Lounge room photo

6 Fitzroy Street Forrest 2603, Lounge to Family.

This one’s good:  there’s nobody home and the “fire” is burning away in the empty house.

21 Barrallier Street, Griffith, Lounge room and Bedroom One.   This is the best one, where the same “fire” is burning in both the lounge room AND the bedroom.  I actually walked through this house once, and at least the fire place in the lounge room is in no condition to take a fire without risking buring the house down.

Surely this violates the laws about deceptive advertising?

What’s Your opinion?

Yup. I shoot buildings for cash-money (but not real estate) and this looks to me like a bit of over-egged HDR (which, admittedly, most HDR is for the moment). The two reflections in the mirror and shower screen are far too accurate for a fake. The crappy matting on the window frame, however, reveals the excessive manipulation and conveys a sense of fakery.

Look at this one…it’s a classic, this time from Ray White’s in Sydney. It’s so bad in so many places I don’t even know where to start ..but surely illegal?

Hmmmm. I’m not convinced. I think it’s a genuine view. The outside image has been photoshopped for exposure, which is normal practice, but I’m pretty sure that the views are what you would see. Because of the wide angle lens, the room appears longer than it would to the naked eye, and as a result the apparent angle of the direct and reflected views looks wrong.

I’m only relying on 48 years of private and commercial photography for this opinion so it probably won’t count in this forum…

They have at least figured out that the image seen through the window reflected in the mirror should be different to the view seen directly through the window. I bet they used up their whole daily quota of clever to figure that one out, and ran out of mental steam whith which to finish the job.
