Here they are - any thoughts/insights as to why these failed the quality standards would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, Jim

1. Probably too much motion blur. You would also needed to have edited out the signs or provided property releases since the corporate logos are evident.

2. Chromatic aberration along the edges of many of the people.

You also need to edit out the signs on the animal. And the cowboy may be recognizable. A model release would help.

@James2852230295ei, regarding the IP issues (even though it was rejected for quality) before you spend any time editing out the ear tags, etc. you should really check with the rodeo if they have a photography policy.  Many sporting venues (or any place that requires a ticket for entry) will have their own professional photographers and do not permit other photographers to sell photos that were taken at their events.  Sometimes it is the stadium, sometimes it is the sports league that claim IP rights.  Sometimes it's not an issue.

 

It's a great action shot and I don't want you to waste too much time trying to correct technical issues if it is only going to get rejected for IP issues.

Good info.  And actually the venue has been permanantly closed . . . so not sure if that has any impact?

But this brings up a good point - was this rejected for 'quality issues', or was it rejected for 'IP'?  As you point out, no sense in spending time addressing IP issues, if the reason is quality.  So a suggestion for Adobe: add categories for the reasons for rejection so contributors know how to address, and what to work on.

 

Thank you for your insight.

Hi @James2852230295ei 

Your e-mail notification shows how many are rejected. Below is a hyperlink that says "review and learn why". When you click on that hyperlink it takes you to the "Not accepted" page. On the "Not accepted" page the caption tells what your file is rejected for.

A second point: You're files are rejected for the first thing the moderator sees, then direct you to the self-help guidelines and here. Here we point out all the issues we see so that you can correct all if they are correctable.

So now you know all you need to address and work on.

Best wishes

Gotcha.  And I see now both were rejected for 'quality issues'.  So question for you: if, based on the feedback received here, is it encouraged or frowned upon to address those issues (assuming possible) and resubmit?

 

General feedback on the bull photo is noise, which considering I shot at ISO 1000 not sure I could do much about. But on the beach shot consensus seems to be chromatic aberration.  Assuming I were to fix that, is it customary to resubmit, or once-rejected-always-rejected?

 

(I probably won't go to the effort here, but will be good to know going forward.)

You are welcome to resubmit after fixing the presumed error.

No, that has no impact. You would still need a property release.

 

Assets get rejected on the first error that the moderator sees. But there may be more than one error.

 

You have categories, like quality issues, intellectual property rejection, non-compliant image, … Adding more information than this would slow down the moderation process. After a while, you know where to look. And if you don't know, you ask here. We are good at guessing, even if we are not always the same opinion.

The bull rider is a great action shot.  I would put my effort into that one.

Hi @James2852230295ei ,

To add to what was said, the first photo is noisy. You could show a little more detail in the second photo.

To view your files for issue you should zoom to between 100 and 200%. Here are a list of issues you should look for before submitting you file.

Best wishes

Motion blur is not an issue with a bull in motion… 😉

Action shots have more latitude for motion blur than still life & portraits.

 

Clean up the IP issues (logos, signs) and fix whatever else you can. I think the bull rider shot has a good chance of being accepted.
