Hi there wink Have a question how to avoid the same problem in the future.


I got this photo accepted: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/87775863/_IGP5522.jpg


And this one rejected: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/87775863/_IGP5530.jpg


The common reason is:


We found the overall composition of this file's lighting could be improved. Some of the technical aspects that can all limit the usefulness of a file are:

-Flat/dull colors
-Direct on-camera flash and/or flash fall-off (bright subject, dark background)
-Harsh lighting with blown-out highlights that lack details and/or distracting shadows
- Distracting lens flares
-Incorrect white balance


---


What is the difference between the two of them?


It is a RESUBMIT, so how can I make it better and got it accepted?


Thanks everybody in advance wink


M.

The one accepted has a warmer overall tone with more pizzaz, bit more contrast and definition.  I like the second one also but it's very blue and one toned, so a wb adjustment, a little contrast and/or levels adj I think it will pop more and I'm sure you can play with it, give it some pop.  If it were mine I would certainly try and resubmit it.

And for other eyes, it's ok if I upload it full size or need kind of resize to avoid any other problem?

That's way better.  I'd upload it as it and I wouldn't reduce size, I don't see any technical issues with it  that need it resized.

Same here.

Of the two, if I had to guess which had been rejected for lighting, I'd have picked the accepted one.

I agree with the above. I think its really pretty close as it was so I would make subtle adjustments and try again.


Maybe slightly warmer (not nearly as much as your accepted one or your edit above), and maybe tweak brightness and contrast to give just a little more punch and try again since it allows a resubmit.


I say all that to say, don't go nearly as far as you did above, just slight tweaks and give it another whirl.

I like the rejected but fore me it seem a bit soft/plastic at 100% or maby too much noise reduction added???


Good luck with resubmit.

I prefer the lighting in the rejected one but the composition in the accepted shot.

I'd increase the contast and brightness slightly and maybe make the colour a bit more neutral - it loooks slightly green to me, without actually opening in photshop and doing a more rigorous check.
