Here is a picture of one of the room's a hotel wanted me to photograph for their website.

The pictures was taken by first setting the camera to f8 in apperature mode and taking a reading of the outside then setting it to manual to whatever the reading was, i then set the studio lighs to full and set it below at my feet, as I found this to be the best angle for less shadows. I would them range my apperature from f8 to f16 to get the best results.

Now, my question is, what could I have done differently to improve on this photo?

Looks like part of the duvet cover is blown out, but I doubt that the hotel would care about that. You managed to get most of the interior plus the view of the landscape right - it shows what an attractive room with a view it is.

You have done a good job of evening out the exposure and this shows all the room details well, maybe showing the room lit by the room lights and shot later (or earlier) in the day so the outside lighting is also warmer would give a more cosy and inviting atmosphere, nice flowers also give a more intimate feeling to a room, you need to make the person who is likely to be booking the room feel that they would be getting a relaxing/romantic setting for their stay at the hotel.

I'm by no means an expert, but in this picture my eyes seem a little bit drawn too much to the ceiling; a view angled a bit lower would direct my attention to the rest of the room a bit more and maybe (?) make the room look a bit more expansive as well.

A nicely done shot, there is cracking view from the window which is subtle but shows the hotel has promise.
there is slight converging of the verticles which could be tweaked in PS.
although dbuller has a valid point about the ceiling it gives the room a sense of space.
One tip with interiors, if there are lamps, turn them on even in the daytime. it brightens a room and gives it a cozy warmth.

Regards
Andy

I concur with all previous comments. What little landscape is shown through the window is slanted meaning that the tripod wasn't straight. your client probably won't notice it, though. Smile
