 Light effects is intended to show the effect of the light from the bulbs. I do not understand reason ...

You need to read the "Read this first" at the top of this forum to find out how to post here to get feedback. We need to see full size (watermarked for security) images to comment.


Having said that these sort of composite images need to be virtually perfect both in execution and concept to stand any chance of acceptance here.

The compositing viewed at 100% is not very convincing. The bulbs just seem to fade out, they don't morph into the flowers at all and the reflective parts of the screw fitting don't reflect the flowers either. There are some bits where the petals closer to the camera have bulb overlaid, which should be behind - see the highlighted area below:

Yes, in the trees one, the reflections aren't right on the threads, and the shadows are wrong cast from the trees behind, and to the right of the house.


These things need to look as if they came from the camera that way, no matter how impossible that may be in reality.

Thank you for your comprehensive answer. I'll have to fix it ...

Additionally, the bulb filaments look like they were drawn in randomly with a brush. These are precision wires which typically form semi-streatched circular pattern in the bulb, they don't randomly dip and loop. Additionally, if the bulbs were providing this much light I doubt the filament would be visible, the bulbs would be much brighter. It looks like you have 10 Watt bulbs lighting 10,000 Watt scenes. I am not a composite expert, this is the opinion of a casual viewer. I don't get the concept, sorry, but would it not be easier with soft white bulbs or more modern compact fluorescent or LEDs. I could see a growing future for LED concept but the incandescents you have chosen are slowly becoming obsolete.

This type of composite work has to be very completely thought out and very expertly executed in order for iStock to accept it. In addition to the points already made above, there are other details that visually are just not working.

For example...

-the ambient lighting on the lightbulb base does not at all match the ambient lighting on the flowers.

-The metallic, reflective base is still reflecting whatever was around it when it was photographed, but should be reflecting the flower petals.

-The interior parts of the lightbulb do not appear to be illuminated by their own filament, which contributes to the artificial appearance of the glow. (also the filament is not fully "lit" on two of the three copies in the flower image)

-The flowers don't appear impacted by the light from the bulbs either. And it's the same lightbulb photo over and over, which adds to a copy/paste appearance.

-Some of the isolation work around the flower petals is too hard-edged and jumps out as fake.

Ups... flowers-powers was accepted. And I just ... I put new bases and some corrections. But the older not look bad.

And what about this picture? I fixed shadows of trees on field, light on little forest on right of farm and forest-sky border.
