Hello,

I'm new to the selling process and have had some rejected pictures, due to "technical issues." Looking for someone to help me identify the specific reasons. I use photoshop for editing. I noted file information to help. Your help is appreciated!

Hi El Sea, All your images are noisy especially at the edges as though excessive post process sharpening was applied.. There is also the matter of color noise . In addition they lack contrast. White balance is not correct. They are too cool and are not completely in focus. Please zoom your images to 100% to inspect for faults.  Best wishes JG

Hello, There are a number of problems with your images. The composition is not very good, the images are noisy: You can see artifacts - it's rather pixely.

Hi El-Sea

It's pretty obvious to me that focus is the main reason for rejections. With close up images of animals it makes sense  to aim the focus on animal eye or other featured element of the composition. You have applied optimatl camera settings but unfortunately the focus isnt there. 

 

Kind regards

Thank you for your response and critique. I'm off to watch videos to help learn proper settings, edits, etc. I'm just editing to my liking on the view of my screen without the understanding of what is correct for printing. Again, thank you for your help.

Hello El_Sea,

 

Please find attached some non-technical notes I have made.

Apologies in advance for handwriting on your work, I found it quicker and was with the sole purpose of providing some help beyond the "plain" rejection legend we all might have get once or more in our work.

 

Just trying to provide an "out of the box" perspective. My contribution is with good intentions only and hopefully produce at least one smile.

 

For more formal and professional comments listen to the guys that clearly know what they are talking about.

 

Keep shooting, learning, observing, and specially, having fun!

Cheers,
