Looking for advice from mainly professionals, wouldn't mind average shooters either as I'm not above any advice.

Also, if you have any links or information as to bettering architectural photography and editing them, please share. I have a real hard time finding good information.

This was a 2 shot composite with a lot of time between PS and LR. I definitely need to learn how to artificially light better and mixing lighting.

There are no rules for a good photograph and there are no excuses for a bad one.

Ya really should reduce your image size down to about 1020 pixels...exterior is a little bright, someone needs to be in charge of decor problems, ie, rug crooked/closet door ajar/clutter in back room/blind crooked, good lighting exposure.

The things you do for yourself die with you, the things you do for others live forever.
A man's worth should be judged, not when he basks in the sun, but how he faces the storm.

AGree with ^ also, you are leading in the photo with a white couch, which is going to grab the attention first may want to get higher for another perspective.

you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

A nice angle on the room, but it looks a little soft, plus there are a few dust spots visible on the ceiling.

I would like to know the "goal" of taking the picture.

Is this to sell a house?
Is it part of a photojournalism effort to show someone's lifestyle?

Either of these purposes of the photos would change how I would take the shot...and make some changes to the furniture arrangement and attention to the shadows, window blinds, and the fuzzy thing on the floor in the hallway.

1D-III with stuff to stick on it:
70-200L, 28-70L, 24-105L, 300L, 50, 10-17 fish, 2.0x TC
Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

Not knowing what the rest of the place looks like...I would suggest starting at the front door and work your way through the house.. Start later in the day when there is a lot less light coming in from outside. Turn on the inside lights, and shoot using a tripod.

As to staging the house - reduce clutter. The less 'stuff' in the house the better the images will look - neat, clean, and organized.

I don't think we need to see all of that ceiling, & in the "Share" areas IMAGE POSTING RULES only allow a maximum 1024 pixels on any side. You can always just post a link to them.
