Hi:


I am a new contributor and this photo was rejected due to lighting issues, but I can resubmit.  Here is what the e-mail said:

We regret to inform you that we cannot accept your submission, entitled Easter Bunny - Head and Shoulder ( https://i.istockimg.com/file_thumbview_approve/23424667/2/stock-photo-23424667-easter-bunny-head-and-shoulder.jpg) for addition to the iStockphoto library for the following reasons:

We found the overall composition of this file's lighting could be improved. Some of the technical aspects that can all limit the usefulness of a file are:

-Flat/dull colors
-Direct on-camera flash and/or flash fall-off (bright subject, dark background)
-Harsh lighting with blown-out highlights that lack details and/or distracting shadows
- Distracting lens flares
-Incorrect white balance


Here is the photo that was rejected:

Here is the photo that I have worked on trying to rectify things.

Do you think it is ok to re-submit or is there more I should do?

Thanks.

It's a bit underexposed and lacks "pop". Bringing up the exposure a bit and a slight S curve adjustment would fix that. Watch out for noise showing up when you do that.

I agree with Dave; moreover it seems to me that a little bit of vignetting is visible in the rejected shot. You may fix it by using the Lens Correction feature available in Camera Raw.


Ciao,
