I had this photo rejected. The property is not a publicly recognized property (general public). It certainly is private property. Are there other technical issues as well? I came across this, on my morning walk. Thanks for taking the time to review

I don't see that much problems with a property release. It may pass, it may not pass.
But there are technical issues: The image is not sharp and there is a lot of chromatic aberration.
So I personally would give you a clean refusal on those merits. The sharpening can probably not be corrected.
In addition I see noise in the darker areas.
Thanks for your critique. I see what you mean. On the sharpness issue, there was a tangle of wires, that I tried to remove and that probably led to that. I am just beginning and appreciate your insight. Any suggestions on the chromatic aberrations. I had checked the checkbox in LR. What would you do differently? Any place that I can read up / YT. Would you not expect some noise in the darker areas especially when it is unevenly lit. My camera is a relatively basic one Canon 450D. Thanks again.
I think the moderator is right in his/her decision of IP. Even though it is private property, it is most definitely recognisable!
The camera is ok. It's not the best, but there's no problem with that. The lens is probably more problematic. I've remarked a huge difference with higher quality lenses.
The chromatic aberrations: If the automatic removal does not work, you need to go to the manual removal. Try to tweak it with the "Fringe colour selector":
I do not expect noise in darker areas except if they have been lighten-up. You should look at your pictures like a craft, not an artistic performance. It needs to be clean for stock...
That concerns also your editing work:
Unfortunately this is not clean!
There is no need to submit this picture. There are 100 reasons to refuse it.
I love it, because of the light, the framing and the situation. But it will never make it into Adobe stock, nor would I accept it for a photo contest. It will need too much post processing work, work that should have been put in before.
Abambo Thank you very much for your suggestions and comments. Very valid, and I truly appreciate the time that you have taken to analyze and offer suggestions. Most kind of you.
I now realize that far more effort is required than what I have put in. I was enthusiastic and eager to do something with a newfound hobby. I shall be more careful.
