I was sent this rejection notice:
This photograph would be more useful and better suited if uploaded to iStockphoto’s main RF creative collection. Please remove all logos and/or logotypes (if there are any) and submit as creative RF with model release(s) if there are recognizable people in the image.
I am confused. There are no logos etc to remove and I have only a model release for the man doing yoga, not the Indian lady, hence why I submitted it as Ediorial.
Any input or advice for me?

This is also a posed image, we do not accept posed shots in Editorial. The image has to be taken in a natural environment with people just doing what they do, without any guidance form the photographer.

Should I then re-submit it as RF creative, with only having the model release for the man?

Yes, I would crop the image or clone the person that you dont have a release for and submit as creative.

Well, I certainly will not be doing that! Thanks for the advice anyways.
