Hi, I'm new to Adone Stock and learning wquickly (e.g. copyrioght logos and poor keywording will cause images to be rejected). However, the following image was rejeted for 'technical issues' but I'm unclear as to why. This has been published in the RSPB magazine as an award winning image! Can anyone explain why? Thank you.
Oops, sorry for some typos in that message!

Maybe it's about the noise. You could try to reduce the noise and resubmit the photo.
Photos that are submitted in B&W generally don't do well. It is best practice to submit in colour. This is what Adobe generally suggests because the downloader/customer can alter the photo to their needs. You can't make a B&W photo colour, but you can make a colour photo B&W.
There also seems to be some issues with noise in the sky.
Hi Marianne and Ricky, thanks both for the feedback. I agree on closer inspection there is noise in the sky. I'll dig out the original RAW file and reprocess - it was pretty much B&W anyway but I could leave 'as is' what original colour there was and de-noise the background. Let's see how thast works! Thanks once again, really appreciate the help for a newbie 🙂
