Hi,


Got a couple of rejections which I don't get. Feedback welcome...


https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/Public/CFGrapes1.jpg?w=c1747111


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

 The focus IMO is way too shallow for that type of shot, none of the grapes are in focus and just a liitle bit of the almond surface is in focus, I would prefer to have at least one or two almonds in focus. As for the light it appears to be a bit too harsh on the boths sides of the grapes.


Regards


Chris.

Hello,


  I think  it is overexposed (you have blown out highlights), the DOF is shallow indeed,It might it would work better with  F8, maybe F11, but don't think it is the main problem.I also find  that for such a bright image at ISO 100 you have too much noise that appears to be "sharp"


Just my opinion , hope it helps.


Best wishes,


Bruno

IMHO the grapes are also over saturated and the image was in some way over filtered. I mean, if you take a look at the grapes, there is no fade on the grape colors, they are cut.
