Hi folks,

I'm very new to selling photos and my Wallace Monument image was rejected.

I would love to hear any critique that you may be able to give so I can continue to learn and improve.

 

My first thoughts are as follows:

- too dark

- I dont see any dust or artifacts and seems to be in focus.

 

Thank you kindly.

Hi Xenoaxle,

It seem to be underexposed. It is too dark in the shadows, thus not seeing much of the details.

Best wishes

Hello,

Your photo is lacking contrast - not enough blacks and whites and it is a bit underexposed. Add a bit more light and contrast. You need more contrast in the foreground. However, B&W images don't do so well on stock, so it is better to leave in colour. The buyer can change to B&W if they want to, but can't add the colour back again. So, I would leave it in colour.

Dear Xenoaxle,


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. NO plagiarism 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 volunteering dude trying to help people blowing off some steam when their work is rejected.

 

In other words, 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
