Crappy before and after pictures

I mentioned in my previous post that I bought valances for the whole apartment at the cost of eleven dollars.
I took some pictures today and they turned out just awful.
What's really bad is that I think some of the before pictures look better than the after.

Here is the before picture of the bathroom window. My bathroom is so small I had to stand in the bathtub to take this picture.
This blue cloud print valance was originally in Vet Tech Girl's room at my old house. I'm going to give it to Baby Girl for her apartment.

Here is the after picture. It looks better in person and at least now I can have the window up and not worry about scaring our neighbor in the apartment just across the driveway.

The before picture of the living room.

After. Once again, they look much nicer in person.

I couldn't get decent pictures of the shower curtain because the bathroom is so tiny but anyway it's cream with a thick brown satin stitch border around the sides and bottom. It looks a lot like something from pottery barn and it was one dollar.
These are all the pictures I'm going post but you get the general idea. Since we just rent this apartment, and we have no idea how long we'll be here, I can't justify buying enough fabric to make them.
I already made that mistake when I made curtains for Baby Girl's apartment and she moved shortly after I made them.

They're cute! I know how hard it is to take a good picture of a window.
