Trying to find out why this photo of a National Park vista was rejected? My understanding is US NPs don't generally require releases? It's a 32mb jpg. The signature isn't on the submitted file.Canyonlands_NP-Low Res.jpg

The white balance is off. The sky is over saturated. The highlights on the ground are overexposed. The shadows are underexposed. Your signature must be ommitted. This is how your photo will look at 100% when printed.

Looks really good to me.  I've just had my first 5 off rejected for technical issues, so I will be asking the same questions as you.  Could yours be because of perceived grain/noise? Or because of the strong contrasting shadows and highlights?  Hopefully a contributor who is successful can advise.  I'm betting it's because an algorithm is doing the checking, whereas a human may have passed it off?

 

Best of luck going forward.

You did not indicate the rejection reason, so I must assume it was due to technical issues. National Parks do not automatically receive an IP rejection. I have had many accepted from Yosemite, Crater Lake, Death Valley, Sequoia, Muir Woods and others without having had to include a Property Release. I agree with all of Ralph's comments regarding technical flaws. This has the overall impression of an over processed image.
