Hi CatFix,

The white balance of your images need to be corrected. They are a bit cool. Also the second image is over exposed.

We can however help you better if you state what was the rejection reason given for rejection.

 

Best wishes

I don't think there is much to be done with these shots. The lighting is really bad in both. As mentioned by Jacquelingphoto2017, your white balance is very funky. If you shot raw you can adjust that. You can also drop your highlights down about a stop then increase your shadows until it appears to be reasonably balanced. Even if you can make these images technically correct however I don't think they will be approved. The composition feels too snap-shotty to me. Next time, get creative. Get real close to what you want to feature in the shot and shoot with a wide angle lens using a wide aperture. 

 

Better luck next time,

 

Mat Hayward

Hello,

Technical issues cover a wide range: composition, saturation, contrast, white balance- which is the colour temperature - composition.

Your images suffer from pretty much all of the above. Because you took these shots under artificial lighting - fluorescent ? - it gives the pictures a yellow cast, which is what you have, and why you have bad lighting.

Have a read of this from Adobe:
