If you're referring to the wall lines, they are actually correct. In the second shot the walls are on a slant due to the outside structure of the building. It's a loft apartment. Is this what you mean? Apologies in advance if you're talking about something else, and thanks for the heads-up regardless.

Look at the window sills on both images, they both bow in. Pulling the image from the bottom out will resolve both.

Verticals need some work, and you already know you should have stopped down a bit. Looks like you pulled that clarity slider a bit too much based on the window discoloration. Normally I'd say the shadows are too intense but I think the blacks work for these.

You need to go in and fix your verticals. Look at the images above yours, and you see the difference when they are straight, v's converging as yours are doing

On the second shot, you can look at the electrical outlet on the left bottom side and see it's not vertical.

I would also be shooting f8-f10. Not too many uses for big DOF in real-estate unless you're shooting creative/lifestyle work. Personal opinion obviously.

I think the wall lines are obvious but the the window frames not square and other lines are converging as well.

Your 24-70 would be more than adequate for the occasional job but your would likely want a wider lens (or zoom) if you did more of this work.

While I think these are very nice compositions, your experience with portraiture is showing. The PP appears to be a rather flat type that is currently popular in portraiture but does not serve these images well. The images need a full range but bright processing with lots of clarity and plenty of detail. The blown highlights indicate a single exposure - correct? You need more realistic detail and density in the lightbulbs and windows. Most real estate photography is done either with multiple off camera speedlights or bracketed exposures blended with EF or HDR to get a wider range.

I'm being pretty critical. I hope you will see it as constructive. My intent is not to insult or complain. I thinks these are an excellent beginning.

No I greatly appreciate this! I was pleasantly surprised to see a real estate section here on the forum, and I definitely do not have experience in this field. So this advice is invaluable. I'm not sure if I will delve in to it, and yes I need to educate myself in the exposure and editing styles conventional to this style of photography. Thanks!

Thank you, cccc...I admittedly used a matte type edit here and will revert to standard editing style.

Here a couple of extras from a house I shot today. They are not the primary images of each room but are supposed to brighten up the overall presentation with somewhat unusual viewpoints. I always look for a few of these opportunities once the basic work is completed. Hope you enjoy them.

I will be nity-picky on these. I have no experience with this kind of photography. Just my comments based on what I see.

First one, towel on that dishwasher, loose it. Same with soap and paper towels. And that red soda behind the leather one, particularly the one just peeking a bit behind the wall.

2nd one, wish you couldn't see the inside of the pantry. The window would have been better little under-exposed. And that bottom on baseboard behind the carpet bothers me a little.
