The inspectors rejected this photo. They said that white balance was incorrect, but I disagree. I used a blue light on the girl face to simulate the reflection from the tablet screen and a white light on the room.
What do you think?
Thanks

Based on my small experience I think that its better to exaggerate effects like this to make it clear for inspector that it was intencional. Sometimes I put a note in description that such effect was used(and it seems to work).


Good luck.

Did they specify the white balance in the rejection? Usually they don't pick out a particular issue. Personally I'm not very keen on the lighting at all, more so for the rest of the room than her face. Regarding the face though, it looks more magenta than the typical bluish tone that screens give off.

Exactly what I was going to say. Do you have a resubmit option on it?

I think this approach would look better with a dimmer ambient. and also don't care for the magenta quality.
