We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
Hello, you rejected two of my images recently and I am wondering why my photos weren´t accepted? Which technical issues did you find it? I don´t consider these two photos with the crown in the mountains as acceptable. Can you give me the reasons, please? Thank you for your time and response.
We would really like to help, but you have omitted uploading copies of the photos you speak of as being rejected for technical issue.
To upload the image click on the seventh (7th) icon from the left of the reply (post) text box menu bar. When you hoover over the icon you will see "Insert Image"; that's the icon you click on to upload the images for us to view them.
There seem to be a white balance issue with both images. The images has a slight blue overcast. Also the images are too dark and thus have lost the details of the crows. You needed to apply more light. Additionally I believe the blur of the mountain in the forefront especially that of the second image is distracting and takes away from the image.
There is also the issue of a grainy, watermark appearance of the dark areas of both images when zoomed.
You should inspect your images zoomed at 100 to 200% for imperfections, and there need to be adequate exposure, or lighting so that details are visible.
Unfortunately, there are quite a few issues with these two photos.
White balance - both have a blue cast.
Exposure - the images are also underexposed.
I also agree with the out of focus foreground.
By the way, this is a user to user forum, so even though we are ACP's we do not work for Adobe. We just volunteer our time to help users like you improve their photos and improving the success rate of being accepted.
First the good news:
The bad news:
I'm sure that some pictures like this (very styled) get through, but they need to be perfect as the market for such pictures is very limited. Your chances would be much bigger if the raven would be visible with all his structure (foreground lighter an "correctly" exposed). The reason here is, that anyone low-talented Photoshop guy could get your look out of a correctly exposed picture but the inverse is not true even for the most talented of us.
In addition you have some things on your image that need to be addressed:
For camera settings I have the following remark:
