got this rejection with a no resubmit:
The execution of isolation contains stray areas that are either too feathered or rough.

can you help me to understand.


The pic is not cut out in photoshop , it is a photo in a studio with a plain white background and only little level adjustment

Well, I suppose the outlines of the hands/wrists do look very sharp. Do you have all your sharpening default options set to zero?
To work from this file, either blur/feather (or whatever) these a tiny bit or scout it. The hair and clothing outlines look good.

The background isn't clean white. Probably due to texture in the background. You can see a non white area on the (viewer's) left by the chest too. Only slight-pinkish to me. Brightening the whole image up a touch would probably fix it.

 I hear you, yes it is possible to have very nice smooth sharp edges in isolations out of the camera without any processing done, I'm not sure that some inspectors know that   The focus changes with a dimentional object, so if focused on the eyes everything on the same level will be nice and sharp in your case the hands but beyond that it will soften a little bit, it is a result of the DOF not bad isolation, I do not see a problem with that unless they want to see all edges smooth or rough and no variations. I had two rejections too and I shoot against 70" softbox for my isolations using 50mm or 24mm primes extremely sharp lenses too, sometimes I just want to give up


Regards


Chris.

The edges are fine here, it's a reasonably clean in-camera isolation and I'm certain the Inspector was aware of that. But you can see that you have adjusted the background which clearly wasn't blown fully white originally. You can still see areas of a more yellowish-white background visible in a few areas such as where the hair sort of "webs" across right above the red egg, and through the hair just over his left shoulder (right side as you look at image). I believe these areas are what the Inspector would have been talking about. There's no need to file a Scout ticket, assuming this was Can Resubmit. Just clean that up and resubmit.

The marching ants below (magic wand, tolerance 0) show the stray areas Donald mentioned and a bunch more.

I have already made a scout ticket.
I would clean the background but it is a NO resubmit.

I'd also say the expression isn't really marketable. He looks angry.
