This image was rejected pending a model release. I submitted this slightly PS distorted profile of a face with a hat and thought he is not identifiable.
I am new at this and really liked the shot but not sure how i can make this acceptable?
By muting some additional facial features would that be acceptable?
I distorted the drink cup logo, removed the logos from the chair and bag and EVEN covered his plumbers butt.
The hat covers the hairline so you do not see that recognition pattern.
I do not shoot facial shots because of model releases.
Any help is appreciated.
"Identifiable" is a broad term. This isn't like surveillance cameras doing face recognition. A rear view can be totally identifiable. Could the model, or ANYONE ELSE, say "I know who that is"? If I was that fisherman, I would know that stretch of river. I'd know that tree, and the time of day that it's worth fishing under it. I would know my fishing kit. I would probably remember the day and the catch. Heck, yes, identifiable. If this picture was used in a national advertising campaign for an embarrassing product, that fisherman could sue you, Adobe and the company doing the advertising.

No, it will not pass.The moderator does not look if the person does recognize himself but only if there is a face. And in addition there may be other items making it recognizable, like the colourfull mug or the bag.
In addition the picture will be refused for technical issues as the image is quite wased out. In addition your photoshop art is bad, as you see it's photoshopped. And you've forgotten the had with the Donald Trump logos on. Remember: No logos...even if it's the presidents one...
