Hi!

 

Can comeone tell me what the "technical issues" are with this rejected photo?

 

To me,

  • It appears to be in focus
  • I cannot see any noise
  • I cannot see any artifacts or CA
  • It looks properly exposed and the colors appear correct

 

Thanks!

I don't believe the composition is flawed; it's a sweet image of a fawn resting in the grass. I do think it's over-exposed, lacking contrast and a bit too yellow. I just dropped the image into LightRoom and took a look at the Histogram which shows the exposure bunched up on the right side. I hit the Auto button and the exposure was adjusted downwards by .7 stop and Contrast by +7. I also adjusted the white and blacks to achieve a more balanced exposure.

Hello, I think the picture is overexposed. Look at the histogram: and the white balance is a bit off - it's a bit too yellow'green. As far as the compiostion goes, you could have a wee bit more foreground.

Composition I'd say. The fawn's head is blocked.

Do you knnow why our photos would be rejected based on subjective reasons like this? What if someone wanted the fawn to be peeking out of the grass, and they missed the opportunity to use a perfect photo because someone else thought it isn't what a designer would want? 

 

I'm having trouble figuring out why my texture photos are being denied other than they might think it is too much cropping, I had a close up of green sand, and one of black sand, and one was approved the other wasn't. I am quite confused about composition being considered a technical issue.

Composition is subjective, EsotericSpiral, but it isn't random. And it is specifically listed on Adobe's list of technical reasons - did you read it? We see lots of poorly composed pictures, like random objects around the subject, non-level horizons, power cables crossing an otherwise fine landscape, dogs with a paw cut off - commercial artists are expected to do better. Yes, it's particularly tough for wildlife shots, of course, but Adobe customers expect perfection - such as they would find in a wildlife magazine or TV documentary; they don't know or care how hard it is.

 

It's best not to jump onto the discussion of someone else's very different work. I suggest you start a new discussion with an example of your own work (not just a description). Be sure to post the exact original work, because many faults are only visible at 100%-200%. And, don't play the "guess which was accepted" game.

Thanks, but I did want him hidden, that was part of the concept, a young deer hiding from the dangers of the wild.

The composition is not the major fault, but if possible, tell the deer to move a little bit to the left and take more room down.

 

The major fault is the overexposure and the faulty white balance. If the weed gets more out of focus, that would be ideal.

Thanks, so am I able to re-submit it if I make some changes? Or once it is rejected, that's it?

Yes, definitely. I have had quite a few accepted after additional editing. I just make sure that resubmitted images have a different file name when I upload them.

Ok, thanks!

 

I took another close look, and I may have found the issue (sorry for wasting everyone's time).

 

On the left side, I removed a branch that was distracting, and if I look carefully I can see where. I should have checked more carefully before 😞

 

Tonight after the deer left I went out and cut the branch down, so tomorrow I'll re-take the shot.

Ya, they practically live in the field next to my house, even though I live in the city (deer are very common around town here).

Hello,

I think the picture is overexposed. Look at the histogram:

and the white balance is a bit off - it's a bit too yellow'green.

As far as the compiostion goes, you could have a wee bit more foreground.
