I need a little help on this one .
It got the standard lighting rejection.
And I agree, it is kind of dull/flat.
On the other hand, the original bill is as dull/flat as well.
I did not want to photoshop it too much, so for me it looks like the original.
Any help on this to improve?

Quite straight forward to improve the underexposure on this image...


Take a look at the histogram in photoshop,use the right hand slider and get it under the start of the peek and the image will brighten.

Is the right side of the image in focus?

exactly. I wouldn't be surprised if image is rejected for not being suitable for stock (file composition).

I believe that flat scans or flat, square on photos of banknotes are not permitted.

I think this has been changed - flat scans showing 80%+ of a note, or a series of notes where portions could be put together to form a whole note, are not permitted. Flats showing only small bits are now OK (I believe!?!).

That is correct, as spelled out in the current Wiki entry:

http://wiki.gettyimages.com/currency-paper-monies-bank-notes/


Photos of currency are very easy to come by and aren't likely to see much leeway on technical, lighting, & composition imperfections. My suggestion to anyone desiring to create images of currency would be to strive to create something new & unique...and pay careful attention to the technical details as you do.

Thanks for that, it had passed me by.
