At this point more than just professional photo help too. I submitted this photo and was rejected for Dark and Overshaperned. I went to the original RAW and reprocessed and resubmitted; photo was rejected for Info. I appealed and a head screener was very helpful in pointing out where my error was. I made a copy of the file and renamed so I could re-upload with the Info corrections. I now received a rejection for Grainy and OverSharpened (pretty much back to square one.)
Any possbility of saving; else I'm going to just chuck it.

Michael lovely shot and well done.
Exactly how I would shoot it and I am quite sure it will make a great print for on your wall at home.
Sadly not according A.net standards.
Next time shoot at least 2 frames, one as you did with a wide aperture and one with a small(ler) aperture incase you want to upload(and have it accepted) here at A.net.
The truth lives in one’s mind, it doesn’t really exist

When shooting shots like this with a large front-to-back range, it is best to use the smallest aperture possible, to maximise the depth of field. Shoot with aperture priority and use a tripod if necessary.

Quote: I personally love the motive on this shot and hopefully you can improve upon it so it can be added here.
Thanks. It was "an end of show" shot after people were mostly gone and just before security threw me out. I might mess with it this weekend and try and crop it, but after three times at bat, I really don't want to be a pain in the rear and take up more time from the screeners. It will certainly become an 8x10 or perhaps an 11x14 for my office wall though...shots like this always gets people buzzing at the office.
