This file was first rejected twice because of bad isolation, last time with the following note:
"++Visible editing, poor isolation work on paper, especially around fingers, please fix issues and resumbit, thanks++".
With some help I think I fixed this and it is now again rejected (resubmit) this time for the following reason:
"This image appears to be over-filtered/over-processed which has affected the image quality. This may include Photoshop filters & effects (over-sharpening, excessive adjustments to levels, curves, contrast, hues, gaussian blurs, saturation, added textures, noise reduction...) or other manipulations. We feel the image would have more value to designers with minimal or no post processing effects so that the designers could add their own post-processing effects. Some images can benefit from minor touch-ups to grab the viewer?s attention and there is no definitive line to what editing makes or breaks a great image but the end result should be a single image that can still be molded into a design. Inspectors judge images based on quality, composition and usability."
I am now out of ideas what more to do, can anyone advice.

I'd say that still refers to the same problem, the manipulation of the piece of paper. It's way too obvious and unnatural looking. The work around the fingers, the shadows, the pure whiteness of the "paper" ...it just overall comes off as inadequately executed Photoshop work... (sorry ) ...for which many Inspectors will select the "Overfiltering" rejection.

And the red in the clothing looks over saturated?

The noted issues aside, I'd personally never upload an image as out of focus / affected by camera shake as this without downsizing it considerable to try and address that sharpness deficiency. Not that it's terrible, but I'd not upload anything that's quite so soft.

I would downsize it to 2800x4200 pixels and Smart Sharpen somewhat.
