Please help! Can any of these piggy bank photos be used as one of 3 application photos? 


Photo No. 1 (on white bg):

Photo No. 2 (chalk board bg):

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Definitely not the second one with the "chalk board." We're generally not looking for composited images like this, especially with superimposed text. This is not well-executed enough anyway, the isolation work is not clean enough and is too razor-sharp.

The first one may have potential, but again the isolation work isn't up to our standard - it's too hard & choppy and doesn't match the focus level of the objects (i.e. back edges of books should have a soft, not hard, edge.)

Whatever you've done to the pig's eyes would draw an overfiltering rejection as well.

The lighting isn't bad - looks like you should be able to do the isolation in-camera rather than in Photoshop, which yields much more natural results.

Thanks, Donald. I have uploaded another photo with the same theme but using an apple instead of piggy bank. On your advice, this time, I relied on isolation in-camera instead of Photoshop. Does this yield a more "natural" result and does this stand a better chance as one of the application photo?  Thanks in advance!

You've got too much bleed around the items. Also, I don't see the reason for putting a coin on an apple.

Sean, Thanks for feedback. When you say "too much bleed around the items" do you mean too much white space? Can this be fixed by cropping more tightly? The reason I put a coin on an apple is to convey the idea of saving for education.

"too much bleed" I think would refer to light entering on the subject from the background reflection, the top of the books and sides of the apple in this case have too much of the white background reflecting.

Why would putting a coin in the apple convey the idea of saving for education ?

I didn't get it either. I certainly don't think it clearly conveys a message in the clear way that successful conceptual stock photos generally do.
