Hi fellows,  


I need some help. This photo is called isolation. It was rejected because of keywording. They told me this:


The following keywords used for this file do not appear to be fully relevant to the subject.


{[ Remote (Descriptive Position), Solitude, Loneliness, Depression (Sadness), Sadness, Problems, Prejudice (Social Issues), One Person (Number of People), Solitude, Loneliness, One Person, Bullying]}
 

Actually these are most of the keywords I placed in. I'd like to know what the inspector has seen or to know what's his/her interpretation of the photo. In my aim was to make something conceptual using chess pieces. In this photo I tried to reflect the concept of isolation. Do you think the photo is understandable this way? And what can I do now?

All of these keywords suggest that your most out-of-focus pawn is actually the main subject. I suspect that the inspector saw a mismatch between the execution and the intention.

To be more specific: Can I label "group of people" as this is what these pawns represent?

No but you can use 'group of objects'.  There are no people in the picture so no 'group of people'.

Ah, the old chess board as metaphor image. I wouldn't try to go to much further down this road. It's kind of played out as most beginners head down this route as one of their first concepts. If you do, stick to keywording what is actually in the image, and make sure the execution matches the intent, as mentioned.
