Guy with a drone vs. Expert aerial photography

Here’s an example of a very challenging aerial photo. The camera is facing the in the direction of the sun, and with a dark shadow cast on the front of the house. While never ideal, I good photography team does wonders. In this case, the water should be blue. Skies should be radiant. Grass and trees should be colorful. Wide Angle distortion should be minimized. Shadows should be lifted as much as possible. And do that to the rest of the photos.
