i don't think it is just bad technique, bad photography and bad content
although it would be much easier to say it is ...
it is an art form in itself to finesse a anscay into something that looks like the print.
This is why I said content wise and/or technique wise. That way, it could be either one alone, or both!

There are four options:

1. Bad content, bad technique
2. Bad content, good technique
3. Good content, bad technique
4. Good content, good technique

Scanning and levels adjustment are just technical aspects, so the content could be very good, but just digitized in a non-flattering way.

The goodness or badness of content is, of course, subjective, and I would not say that it is anything but!
