you must be joking.

I think not, I agree.

I'm curious why you think the first two are high end...

in comparison to the one of the lady:

the location is far more considered and polished (production value) the one of her has overgrown weeds and looks like the back of a garage

And the Brad Pitt image is taken with a fluorescent orange traffic cone in the back of a parking lot. The Pheonix shot in a messy hotel room.

a serious lack of tasteful colour grading

Which image are you speaking about? The one of Pheonix? Agreed.

Lack of styling the clothes are very low end in comparison to the high end stylised clothing in the juergen teller shots

True.

the ladies body is not evenly lit

Even /= well, necessarily.

her posing is very amateur

Yes, as are those in the OP.

the Juergen teller photos have good consistent lighting

Nope.

, subtle professional grading

Definitely not.

, sophisticated posing

Negative.

, well-scouted locations

Not in the slightest.

, high-end wardrobe styling

True.

, professional grooming

Definitely.

it's a matter of looking into the context of the shoot.

Agreed.
