I just got an over filtered rejection. The only change I made to the colour was in CNX in picture control from standard to D2XMODE2.
Here is the rejected file http://a3.vox.com/6a00e398be8445000400f48cef7a5b0002-pi
Here is the raw file http://a6.vox.com/6a00e398be8445000400e398f10dc60004-pi
What would you advise. I was quite pleased about finding a blue sky in the UK.
Thanks in advance Jo

Added new title naming convention.

The whole image looks oversmoothed and painterly, plus some pretty severe halos around the scaffolding & ladder at top. The "raw" version is much better and should go through just fine on your resubmit.

Yeah, you've used some kind of noise reduction on the sky but omitted to do so on the sky bits inside the scaffolding, so there's an obvious difference.

Get the sensor spot that is on the right side near the edge of the image about a third of the way down when you fix. Circular patch that is a little bit darker than the rest of the sky ( visible on raw file).

Thank you for your responses. I will resubmit as suggested. I am sure I will find the happy medium between oversmoothed and artifact rejections, I do love the learning curve here.
Karen - thank you for pointing out the sensor spot. I can see an evening of htooting white paper ahead of me, followed be reseaching the best sensor cleaning product and then followed by me going to a Nikon dealer and asking them to clean my sensor I am such a coward when it comes to sensor cleaning.

Blue sky in the UK? Fantastic. No wonder you took this photo - a cloudless sky. Whoo hoo. I think this photo would be more interesting if the detail of the building - the brick and such - was more of a feature of the image. Otherwise, it looks pretty much like the disembodied top of a building against the sky. While there is nothing wrong with that per se, it won't sell here and what you want to focus on is uploading images that will sell.
