Yeah, they're not crisp enough, the thistle and bee shot has some signs of noise in the background and the bee and top of the thistle is not quite in focus. It looks like the focus is more on the bottom of the thistle rather than the top. May also be a depth of field problem. It seems you have also used a bit too much sharping in order to compensate for the slight out of focus areas.
The river shot is blurred. You may have camera shake here. The other shot is just a blur - albeit intentional, probably won't pass muster with Adobe - too artsy!
Ricky. Thanks for the feedback. It is helpful to narrow this down. No if I coiuld only understand the neuances of interllectual property rejections. For another time! Pete
You're welcome. The IP is a minefield!
Those a nice shots. The image quality rejection, of which I believe was catigorized as "Technical Issue" is as follows:
The flower with the bee has blue and purple color fringing. Also the image is excessively noisy - both luminance and chromatic noise (not technical issue but worth mentioning).
The river also has color noise issues. In addition the dark areas are too black, and the color areas are too saturated. In my opinion, you need more exposure for the river shot.
The abstract image has an area of high light intensity towards the left. The light seem to have blown out important details.
To view these issues, zoom to between 100 and 200% and inspect the entire image. For those with color abrasion and/or color noise issue you will notice the colors are not even but blotchy and/or dotted.
