Hi everyone, 

 

Greatly appreciate some feedback. So I'm assuming that the one with more noise was rejected due to  . . .  well . . . noise? I've developed it a bit more to reduce the noise. Would there be any other issues I'm missing?

You've definitely improved the noise, though I think that large unfocused section of fence could still be problematic.

I agree with @Jill_C , the fence has to go! If you change to a vertical photo you place the center of his head on a "Golden Rule" 1/3 line.

Hi @zeineldine,

What's your goal  -- to take better pictures or to be a successful Stock Contributor? 

 

I ask because people's pets are commonly submitted but few are ever sold.  Stock already contains millions & millions of domestic cat images. Competition is stiff in this keyword category.

By all means, keep working to improve your craft.  And at the same time, look for new & interesting subjects that will give you more profit potential.

Hi @zeineldine ,

The cat is not completely in focus. The edge at the right side of its face is not very sharp and also it back. My eyes were first drawn to it's back.

Best wishes
