Dear mjmagee,

 

One community fellow has listened to you.

 

Please find attached some non-technical notes I have made.

 

Apologies in advance for handwriting on your work, I found it quicker and was with the sole purpose of providing some help beyond the "plain" rejection legend we all might have get once or more in our work. Photos are assumed to be yours. NOplagiarism intentions of any kind at all are pretended from my part. I hope this contribution helps to cover one part of that "big void" of multiple possible rejection reasons.

 

I am not an Adobe employee nor anybody to convince you about anything, I am just a "knucklehead" volunteering dude trying to help people blowing off some steam when their work is rejected.

 

In other words, just trying to provide an "out of the box" perspective. My contribution is with good intentions only and hopefully will produce at least one smile.

 

For more formal and professional comments listen to the guys that clearly know what they are talking about.

 

Keep shooting, learning, observing, and specially, having fun!

 

Cheers,

Vences

PS. Perhaps you might like to elaborate more about the rejections specifics for the pros, they will come to comment, they are really good. I'm more like the janitor of this place, but in a good and funny way.

 

In the meantime, whenever you have a chance, have a look at these past posts I have collected that could help

Hello,

Was it 'Technical issues"? I think you could bring down the highlights a bit and increase contrast and vibrance - it's a bit flat.

Composition wise, not so good as you have the black post dividing the picture in two. It is very distracting.Inked2020-07-29  A BRIGHT ORANGE COMMON CORN-FLAG GLADIOLI ON WHIDBEY ISLAND WASHINGTON_LIcomposition.jpg

 

And in the other photo background is also distracting, and you need more room for the flower. It is very tight in the frame.

Both pictures lack the WOW factor.

Hi Mjmagee,

 

Edge is not sharp at 100% zoom. There is also color fringing, The file is also slightly grainy, and seem to be a bit under exposed.

This also is not sharp at 100% zoom, and a bit under exposed, and in addition slightly too blue.
