I'm actually happy with the ratio but wondered if somebody could have a look at the rejects and point me in the right direction with either what i did wrong or if reversing edits may do the trick. Having had no access to a real camera for 8 years, im fairly happy 7 got accepted. I have a feeling its to do with editing but would like critique

Thank you, all rejects stated quality issues. I had not considered that the driver may have needed a release form, but makes sense. Is it generally preferable not to upload in black and white? 

I was using a compact camera and no excuse but really struggle focusing with a screen, just uploaded a set from a secondhand EOS350 which I'm hoping helps improve focusing noise etc

By @marilyn26842475xcxa

No, you should stay with colour. The reason for this that the potential buyer can probably convert the picture to a BW image, but he or she cannot get the colours back.

 

Moderators look at the first issue they see and refuse. "Technical issues" is likely the most often used refusal reason.

 

Noise is in relation with the ISO, high ISO, high noise. An EOS350 has probably noticeable noise at around ISO800 and above. All depends on the editing and your noise reduction tool you use. Focussing also depends on the lens you use. And higher ISO images tend to be less sharp.

That's good.

 

As a side note: for a beginner, getting 7 out of 15 pictures accepted is a good ratio. Submit only small batches and analyse refusals. That will help you a lot. If you can't figure out the problem, you can post here. We will help you to look at the pictures, like moderators probably do.

Adobe considers a less than 50% ration as good enough (for seasoned contributors). So, it's OK.

Hi @marilyn26842475xcxa ,

After using my phone for a short period I progressed to a compact camera. With it I got some decent shots using auto focus and not moving immediately after taking the shot.

 

Best wishes

Try to keep sunlight above you or slightly behind your shoulder.  Pointing your camera's sensitive light sensor directly at the sun is bad for your camera (and your eyes).  It rarely works out as expected because the sky is so much brighter than the ground.  To counteract for this, experts use filters and multiple exposure settings.

Hope that helps.

============

When I got my first SLR many years ago, I took an introductory camera & photography course offered by the  store where I purchased it.  That information was essential to getting the best results from my investment.   I highly recommend taking a course. These days, you can take courses online at your own pace.

Joining a local photography club and going on field trips together is another great way to hone your photography skills.

The first photo is nt in focus, the shadows are underexposed and the highlights are overexposed. It is poorly cropped with a headless duck on the left side.

Hi @marilyn26842475xcxa ,

The first file has a white balance issue. There's also color fringing and also it's over exposed and noisy.

Black and white is not recommended. The photo is has intellectual property and require model release. 

The third has blown out highlights, overexposure and out of focus.

The fourth photo has color fringing, excessive noise and white balance issue.

 

Best wishes
