Lately, I've had quite a few images rejected for technical issues. I don't buy it since these have all been accepted at other more stringent libraries. Just for fun, I'd be interested to know what the reviewer think they saw. Any ideas?
Interesting that the image I uploaded (4928 x 3254 pixels) matches my color calibrated screen in photoshop at small size. However when I click the + magnifier, the image stays small, but the saturation goes way up. Since Adobe can't handle Adobe RGB images, I converted this to sRGB, so that shouldn't be the problem. Makes one wonder what the reviewers see.
Here are two other rejected images with different subjects.
OK, thanks. That's very helpful!
I take it by the lack of helpful responses no one else can figure it out either. I'll try re-submitting. Maybe a reviewer was having a bad day.
I think the reviewer could see a few issues here. For example, composition and colour temperature. The shadow of the tree trunk? is cutting the picture in two and is distracting.
We'll agree to disagree. The composition is exactly what I intended and would do well even in a photoclub competition. But that's not what we're doing here. It has also sold many times at other agents. It is shadows on a painted truck but also looks like a lake at sunset through the trees. Color temperature is perfect. I have no problem getting my images rejected since I'm mostly an editorial shooter and so more than half my portfolio does not now fit AS. But not for technical reasons.
