Every photo needs at least a little bit of post-production work before uploading. This one has some underexposed areas, particularly the shadows around the horse. You also need to do some lens profile correction to compensate for the parallax error which causes the horizontal trim on the building to appear to be bowed.

Hi @Tanner25151337968p ,

The photo is not in sharp focus. It's noisy and has color fringing on the edges. There is also chromatic noise, and is a bit underexposed. Please zoom your photos to between 100 and 200% to inspect for faults. You also need to look for the issues stated at this link and correct them with a photo editor such as Photoshop, Lightroom or any other of your choice. Here are some do's and don'ts you need to know. There are also some extra tips you'll find useful.

Best wishes

I think it's also worth noting that aside from the technical issues the others have pointed out, there are most likely some IP issues to overcome with the building, horsebuggy, etc.

 

I wish you success!
