Noise, White balance is too yellow and almost nothing is in focus. Adobe is known to have a higher quality standard than some other agencies.

Hello,

The main issue is white balance and focus as mentioned by @Jill_C .

The depth of field is too shallow.

White balance should be more like this:

Hi! Same with me. At beginning Adobe accepted almost 70% all my pictures. Even bad ones. Other big photobank (you know it :))) ) refused about 80%. Last couple months Adobe is refusing 80 %, but that other stock accepting 95%. I`m just watching and smiling. By the way, white balance in this picture is not wrong. Depth of field is too narrow, that`s right.

WB is too warm.

 

Other stock companies may accept what they want. I have an acceptance rate of near to 100% for my last 100 submissions.

How can you know? You were there and saw the light conditions? May be it was light from window at sunset. Also older meat grease can be yellow. There no conditions without studio lights with perfect WB. Should we correct blue or golden hour nature shots too?

We should correct WB issues which give objects or people an unnatural shade, as in this case. Your camera is tricked into making objects too blue or too yellow based on environmental light, but that doesn't mean that's actually the way the thing is supposed to look. For instance, If you photograph a bride in a shady area and her white wedding dress dress looks blue, I'm quite certain that she wants that image to be color corrected!

It is NO USE ARGUING. We don't make the decisions. The experienced users here only share what standards and rules Adobe seem to follow in their checking. (No, you cannot appeal Adobe's decision. That would cost them time and hence money; better for them to lose good pictures than spend an extra few minutes).

Counter question: how do you know?

By @glum person

So, you are saying that this butcher sells old meat? That should give you your answer. The contributor has more possibilities to correct the white balance than the buyer if they shoot raw.

By @glum person

Inapplicable. As there is no visual reference, the WB should be as expected.

By @glum person

This is simply not a blue or golden hour nature shot!

Hello,

How can I know, simply by looking at the photo!! White balance or colour temperature plays a critical role in photography. If the white balance/colour temperature is wrong it can play havoc where the colour is very important.

@Jill_C made a reference to a wedding dress. Well, I used to actually print such photos from a negative, taken in such situations where the bride and groom had a photo taken on a sunny day under a shady tree with green foliage as a background. What colour do you think her skin tones and dress is when the photo is printed?

Knowledge of how to colour-correct photos is really important in photography. These days, it is much easier to make such corrections, than it was in the film days! Knowing how light works and what environment you're shooting in is also crucial in photography - that is to say, in taking a good, well-balanced, properly exposed photo. Secondly knowing how to print it from a negative, and these days how to post-process it from a raw file (DNG) in post-processing software.

Should we correct blue or golden hour shots? It depends on what you are shooting! All things are not equal!

Regarding the meat shot, probably it was taken under artificial light, so this immediately will throw the colour temperature off!

Thinking of colour and how the environment can affect colour perception, have you even bought some clothes from a shop - a T-shirt, dress, and loved the colour? Only then to take it home, and become immensely disappointed that the colour s not the same when viewed under natural light? Ever wondered why?

No need to be there.  The onboard AI in digital cameras does stupid things. 

However the color picker in Photoshop doesn't lie. 😑

 

White is white, not pink or yellow.  Gray is gray, not blue or green, etc...

 

In a perfect world, digital cameras would take perfect pictures and everyone would be Annie Leibovitz. 🙂

From a more symbolic way: if you get asked if you were there, to prove the other sides point, was the other side there? It's realy the nonsense argument. 

 

And then, the poster even gives the argument to adjust the WB.

 

@glum person : There no conditions without studio lights with perfect WB.

 

This means that you need to adjust the WB, so that the WB is as near as the expected natural WB. The poster does not understand that we do not need to adjust the WB to what was the real situation, but to what the spectator expects and accepts. And if you only see meat, it should look like good meat. Not old meat, not bad meat.

Sorry, but your prior argument was Also older meat grease can be yellow.

Nevertheless, the white balance is wrong.

I didn`t know then, that yellow grease doesn`t mean meat is bad or old. I looked after later.
