Drywall seams

I live in a modular home and the ceilings were nice but after I moved in you can see all of the seems every 4 foot. The drywall is run with the rafters and if you look down the the open room you can see every seem. What makes these stand out now when you couldnt see them before?

Drywall seams

Could be lots of things.
Poor job finishing.
No one primed before painting.
Only one coat of finish paint.
Put the most likly case would be ghosting.
