Rejected with this


Please provide captions in this format:

City, Country ? Month Date, Year: Caption descriptive text.


But when I look at the image ( File # 24426303)  it has all that or am I missing something


Maybe another button was supposed to be hit


Thanks

the whole rejection note for your file is this:

The caption information for this submission is either too brief and does not describe the scene successfully, or it is unclear, or both. The caption is where you supply the 4 W's:
Where was the image made? When was the image made? Who or what is in the image?
What is happening in the image? Please provide adequate information, clearly, and
entirely in English.

Please provide captions in this format:

City, Country ? Month Date, Year: Caption descriptive text.

For more information on accurate captioning, please see this thread:
http://www.istockphoto.com/forum_messages.php?threadid=299102.

and your caption is this:
Cadiz, Spain - May 29, 2012: A mature woman tourist has her attention diverted to the Pinocchio puppet at a souvenir shop in Cadiz. That's exactly what the doll was supposed to accomplish.

The correct captioning would be something like this:
Cadiz, Spain - May 29, 2012: Pinocchio puppet outside of souvenir shop in Cadiz, a woman's reflection can be seen in the shop window.

You are assuming that her attention was diverted and that was the purpose of the puppet and you can be right but this information is not needed in the caption.
