I'm a new contributor and am trying to understamd the "technical issues" rationale for rejection. I'm trying to adhere to Adobe's posted recommendations for stock and many of my photos have cleared review.
That said, the two images attached were just rejected for "technicall issues" but upon close review in PS, I'm not sure where they fell afounl. Any feedback would be appreciated.
For the macro shot:
I didn't see much in focus when viewing at 100%, even the main subject didn't appear sharp. There is also some pixelation in the empty space around the main subject
For the cityscape with the boat:
Same thing, when zooming in on the details the city in the background has soft focus, especially towards the corners. There is also some noise in the sky and I believe a dust spot in the right corner of the sky.
Hope that helps
It is also possible that the photo of the boat will be rejected for violation of intellectual property, because of the buildings or the signs that appear
Good photos, in the one of the boat, always as a personal opinion, I can only observe a little chromatic aberration in the edges of the background, on the other hand I like that soft focus for this light and this photo, but the photos of stock looks like they want extreme rabid focus, another thing is a little more contrast.
The macro photo is also very good, I would only frame it better and contrast it more, the contrast is weak, but it is a good macro.
I agree that focus is off in both images. In addition, had the cityscape not been rejected for tech issues, would have been rejected for IP violations due to the names on the boat and buildings.
The boat has IP issues, focus is too soft, shadows are underexposed, the sky is noisy and the birds which look like spots need to be removed.
Also this image contains IP problems.
Hi @Stefano ph,
Both photos are not completely in focus and are also noisy, both luminance and chromatic. The image with the both as were highlighted have IP issue.
If you observe this zoomed screenshot, the leg of the insect is not sharp and you will also notice the color of the flowers is not smooth. Please zoom in on your photos at between 100 and 200% to inspect for issue.
