adobe rejected a batch of pictures with a purposely white background, even though they approved others with the same, as being over exposed. I disagree that they are over exposed and so does the histogram In Lightroom. Any suggestions?

Actually, your image could be said to be a tad overexposed.The pixels are a bit too piled up on the right...So, bring back the exposure a bit and adjust the curves a bit to get some more detail in the dinosaur...(I used Camera Raw Filter in Adobeshop)and the resulting histogram...Not a big difference...But just maybe the reviewers might like all of the dinosaur to be in focus, so there just might be a problem with focus issues...Adobe is picky...

Having a picture approved with one stock provider does not qualify for every stock provider. Adobe is known for being very picky on quality. I have some pictures in competitors portfolio that got refused here. Good for me, less for the customer, as I need to agree with some of Adobe’s critique....

Hi shawnip,

Are you sure the rejection just said overexposed? Or did it say Over or Underexpose?

Why don't you upload one of those images to this forum so that we can have a look at it, then we can provide a better answer for you?

Regards

JG

I though I posted a photo in the original post but it seems to have disappeared. It does not specifically say overexposed but it is obviously not under exposed.20190111-LPM08815.jpg

Yes ricky336, focus was my first consideration. Lower half and tail of the beast were blurred. Best regards, JH

Hi shawnip

I agree with Ricky's analysis of the focus. Your main subject should all be sharp. This is important for cropping. In the case of exposure, yes as is brought out your histogram is showing too much to the right. However, there are times the rejection on exposure is due to the dark, and shadow areas being too dark. Therefore you need to pay attention to this also.

Regards

JG
