Could some one explain the quality issues with this photo please?
What is the rejection reason? Technical issues?
The picture is underexposed, as shown by the histogram:
Thank you I was hoping that the exposure was the problem.
They referd to is as a quality issue Common issues that can impact the technical quality of images include exposure issues, soft focus, excessive filtering or artifacts/noise. Learn more about our technical requirements
There may be other problems, but the exposure is the one I saw. The issue with correcting the exposure is, that you will increase the noise level. As it is an ISO1600 picture, that may be a concern. Moreover, an additional concern may be the highlights on the fern.
Normally i make minor adjustments in LRC however this time i sent an unedited image. I will look closer at all the points. Also good comment regarding the ISO. I will see what it looks like after the adjustments and use it as learning experience. Thank you very much
Well, the picture is quite immune against noise. You just need to keep an eye on the noise. I would, for future takes, do bracketing to get the best possible exposure. You surly used a tripod for this picture. That would not have been a problem. It may even have worked to lower the ISO a bit.
Every image requires some editing, particularly if you're shooting in raw. The first thing I always do in LIghtroom is hit the Auto button and then adjust from there.
I probably have no image published anywhere that had not got some tweaking.
Your both absolutely correct and i would normally tweak. I wanted to keep it nearly original and let the purchaser tweak, however in hindsight it was a poor decision on my part and it needed to be worked on to make it more attractive to any potetial purchaser. Mind you a useful lesson all the same 🙂

The purchaser has no access to the raw files. That's a big disadvantage. Best is, to have correctly edited pictures.
