I have some images where editors use this arguments to refuse them.
Anyone can recommend what to do with them?
Thx for the answers.
Photos need the white high points dimmed down and check the exposure and contrast in the first one. It might help if you blocked the skyline and let it be all one color sky. Best regards. JH
to correct the image of the radishes in camera raw in terms of exposure and color tones is certainly easy to do. Removing annoying image elements in Photoshop and optimizing the image section is also no problem to improve the image effect / composition.
The image of the breads can also be corrected here and the image message/composition could also be extremely improved by removing disturbing / superfluous picture elements. But in general I think that in both pictures you should pay more attention to the technical requirements of correctly exposed pictures and the composition of the picture when you take them and in the post production before uploading them..
Here are two suggestions for a possible improvement that could lead to a better acceptance of your images:
I think here the content of the picture concentrates on the important picture elements and brings them into focus of the viewer.
Less is often more, says an old rule of photography and this is especially true in the stock business, I think.
These two pictures are definitely overexposed, therefore the exposure rejection reason. You have to bring down the exposure. If you took this in raw, it is easy to do If in JPEG, then try to reduce the brightness and or use levels/curves.
