This stitched panorama from my part of the Stockholm Archipelago was taken around 9 pm when the wind dies down, shadows become deep on the trees on the close side while the last rays of the sun still reach the opposite shore.

Two keywords were rejected: dusk - well the blue hour in Swedish summer is rather 3 hours but even if it is failry light at 9pm, I still think it is correct to call it dusk

The other one was lovelocal. Must admit in spite of reading the Article about that I am still a little confused - but why is this not lovelocal.

Lovelocal? Is that an iStock initiative I've not heard of? Perhaps they are looking for something more people-orientated, rather than landscapes?

As for dusk, I suppose it just does not look very dusky, being so nicely lit. Maybe 'evening' would be more acceptable.

Hmmm, you're exclusive so there should've been no KW rejection here. Dusk and Lovelocal are back. Sorry 'bout that.

Thank you Ducksandwich, file was not rejected, just the keywords but I am trying to learn aso from those rejections.

By the way if you use the word evening you et the choise of dusk (tweelght) or night.

Lovelocal was also removd from this file (which was also rejected for Adidas stripes and a hidden bottle under sthe grill).


I would really be happy to get a clear explanation when lovelocal should be used. My impression was that imagas out of studio with real people would qualify as well as typical landscpes - was no going to complain about this as I felt there was perhaped not enough background but now that I have the chance I'lluse that as an example also.
