Hi all,

 

I need your advise. I uploaded two photos which was edited by lightroom, film scanned.

I was glad Adobe accepted the second photo with green and houses even the resolution is not so high because of the old and cheap automatic camera. But the first photo was rejected with the reason of technical problem. I put the location information for both which are Hever Castle garden in Kent, UK. 

Appreciate if you can advise me what was difference of those two photos, and if I should proceed upload of photos which were scanned by my old films.

 

Thank you and best regards,

Matt

The first image is rather dull and dark, underexposed, lacks sharp focus and needs a white balance adjustment. Recent experience here in the forum seems to indicate that achieving the Adobe Stock quality standard with film scans or scanned images is challenging due to the technical hurdles, and I wouldn't spend a lot of time editing such images unless the subject matter is unique and compelling.

To add to what Jill said, the first image you posted lacks any color vibrance.  I don't know if this was lost in translation or if the original lacked sufficent RGB information.

Thanks for your comment, Nancy. If I spend my time for old film photo, I should carefully choose very best one.
