Hello everybody, this image has bee rejected due to techical issues. Can anyone tell me what the possible reasons might be? Thank you.
The image is not nearly sharp enough, you need to look at the image full size before submitting.
Also, it appears to be crooked, and the flag pole on top of the building looks cut off. Lighting could be better as well (wait for better lighting conditions).
Even if it were technicall perfect it would have been rejected for IP. You need to remove all brands/logos/etc, suck as Mercury on the boat (and the rest). You may also need a model release for each person that could recognize themselves in the photo.
In addition to the technical issues, there are several IP issues. When the photo is lightened, people are recognizable. You need model releases. The boat license, the boat motor name and the restaurant name is identifiable. For these, you need property releases.
Also, the image must be horizontally straightened and levels adjusted to be considered Stock-worthy.
This is a quick & dirty example of what I mean.
