I am not a new contributor, I carefully check my images. This time some of them were rejected for technical reasons. I am attaching these images to have your opinions.

 

Regards,

Marco

True, but moderators refuse only for one reason. As for the colour space: may be this, one moderator checks it...and reacts accordingly. My best guess, however, is that the moderator simply took the wrong refusal reason.

The color space must be sRGB, the images have Adobe RGB. The people are recognizable. Have you uploaded the model releases of the people?

Hi Marianne.

 

About color space, I have always uploaded images saved with "Adobe RGB" color space and they have never been rejected. All the major agencies worldwide accept images saved with this color space.

About people, the image shoud have been rejected with other reasons (intellectual property, missing release, etc.), it is not a "technical problem".

There are blown out highlights in the photos - the areas are not very large. Still, I would always correct something like that.

Marianne, there is a slight over exposure on some irrelevant details of the statue.

In my humble opinion these are not valid reasons to reject an image. My suspect is that there is an automatic process that analyzes each image...

Just as a final note, this image was accepted by other agencies that are known for having very strict quality assurance procedures.

Mah, I am not convinced but I accept these feedbacks 😉

I didn't look into your pictures as I am on my iPad, but a few remarks:

  • Vetting is done manually. So errors may happen. 
  • sRGB is required so that may well be a refusal reason. I do not discuss the fact that AdobeRGB pictures may pass, however, if you are using tools that ignore the colour profile, clours will look dull as they will assume sRGB. It's no argument that other agencies accept AdobeRGB.
  • Load the pictures as sRGB (not converting!) and analyze again. The result may be quite different from what you see in AdobeRGB.
  • Adobe is known to have a very stringent vetting. Having others accepting these pictures is very unusual, especially because there are IP elements and recognizable people in view. Marked as editorial use?
  • As assets are vetted manually, the moderator may have pushed the wrong button. Like that on the iPad the pictures look quite ok from a technical point of view.

Abambo, thanks so much for your comment, now everything is clear.

I will repost the refused images as sRGB.

It's not a matter of color space. Many images have been accepted with "Adobe RGB" color space.

Some others have been rejected for unknown "technical problems". I think it's quite discouraging posting images and knowing that the acceptance process is a kind of lottery.

For sure I have no time to highlight in the batch of images posted, the rejected photos in order to repost them, hoping in a better evaluator...

AdobeRGB is clearly a defect. You should submit only sRGB pictures. Except from that they are good, but they show in addition both, IP violation and requirements for model releases.

If Adobe color space was a defect, my thousands images wouldn't have been accepted; I have never uploaded a single sRGB image.

Hello,

Have you thought about the perspective? Maybe some lens corrections could be done so the buildings don't have a slight lean! That would be a technical reason!

I doubt it is a perspective issue
