Hello,

Well, this example is enough to get the photo rejected:

Most of the cat is a white blob!

There are overexposed areas on the cat's fur as well as the person's jeans, and the second photo - well problems with focus and blurriness:

as well as the third photo, and finally, your white balance needs to be corrected. The photos are a tad too warm.

Here is what I see in some or alll of the photos:

Highlights are overexposed so that details are lost.

Horizon not level.

Depth of field is in some photos to shallow.

Out of focus due to subject movement (the toy mouse).

Adobe's turf, Adobe's rules. Other agencies accept what they accept. You need to be careful, when exposing something white in sunlight. It get's easily overexposed, even if you assume that the overall is well exposed. Using a reflector to get more light to your subject will allow you to shoot at higher f values, but generally, it's a matter of focussing well. When shooting moving animals, a lot of my shoots are simply out of focus, I tend to shoot many pictures, just to use a small amount of the

Nice pictures. You should retry them, with different camera settings and processing.

 

Looking from my iPad, I see overexposure of the cat and the girls pullover in the two first. The third has little detail in the cats fur. 

 

When I have access to my PC, I will have a deeper look into the pictures.

Thank you very much for your attention and response.
I honestly don't see them too bad, although my screen is not ideal for RAW development.
I will try to see them on other devices and see what the result is.
I would appreciate it very much, because I would like to know your opinion about the quality of the image (noise, exposure, focus, etc...) because you seem to like the concept of the session.
Thank you very much for your time and attention.

Finally I think I will repeat the session, although I don't know if it will be soon, since the other agencies that I go to have accepted all of them...that's where my doubt came from.
It is true that, as you say, they seem to be somewhat overexposed, so I will take it into account.
Thank you very much for your advice and your time.
Best regards to all of you

My camera settings are all manual, except the autofocus., where I try to catch the eyes. Sharp lenses are an obvious advantage.

Maybe I should have shot with a narrower aperture to gain a little more focus, but I had to slow down to 1/100 speed...and of course, a cat is never still.
Do you think that I have too much grain in the shadows when I raised them?
Thanks for your advice

Do you have a separate light meter?  I ask bcause from what I see here, these are all overexposed.  If you're relying on your camera's light sensor, maybe it needs adjustment.
