I see colour stripes in the fog. In addition, the image is out of focus.
At 100% magnified, the tree is in focus. Thanks for the info on the stripes
Focus on the trees could be improved, but the colour banding was probably the refusal reason.
Is there a question you'd like to ask us? How can those of us who volunteer on this forum be helpful?
Rejected on a technical issue. It is logical that the question is not about pizza 🙂 This photo has been rejected many times. Although regularly, he corrected something. Shutterstock has long adopted a much worse option
You posted a very similar image a few days ago; I believe the feedback on this image has already been provided.
Fixed issues according to the response. Result = 0
Fixing the picture does not guarantee success, unfortunately.
I will merge the two threads. As topic, you should select “Contributor critique”. 🙂 Fixing that too.
Looking at the histogram of your original picture, you are missing whites and blacks.
Looking at the new picture's histogram, you are missing blacks and part of the shadows, maybe also a fraction of whites.
The colour banding has been corrected, but you still have clipping.
A fresh pair of eyes, and as it is the same photo, even though you've tried to correct the other issues, it is still not focused very well!! So, it will never pass I'm afraid!
