LAS rejects

Mon Mar 26, 2018 3:42 pm


I uploaded a batch of photos taken at Las Vegas-McCarran and to my surprise most of the photos got rejected. I've taken hundreds of photos in the past under similar circumstances (same location, weather, equipment, editing) that got accepted without many issues. So while appealing them two by two (which will take several days), I thought I'd seek some feedback on this forum in the meantime.

First, here are the photos taken at Las Vegas that got accepted:

Here are the photos that got rejected.

The rejection reasons are low contrast, underexposed, soft and colour issues (yellow, red or cyan). I'm really curious as to why these photos are worse than my photos that got accepted earlier. I don't see any significant differences.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Hoi Joost,

Your photos are standard of good quality, but I do agree that sometimes they can be improved. Below my thoughts on the ones you linked:

1. Yellowish (Kelvin more towards the blue side).
2. Low contrast.
3. Fine for me.
4. Low contrast and soft titles.
5. Fine for me.
6. Fine for me.
7. Fine for me.
8. Fine for me.
9. Fine for me.
10. Underexposed. (I realize the sun comes from the left, but I still feel it can stand to be brighter).
11. Low contrast, yellow (Kelvin more towards the blue side).
12. Fine for me.
13. Low contrast.
14. Low contrast.
15. Fine for me.
16. Low contrast.
17. Needs a bit more contrast.
18. Needs more contrast.
19. Fine for me.
20. Fine for me.

* The colors casts aren't superbad, but could use some 200/300 Kelvin in either direction. I didn't see any cyan photos in the 20 you linked, only the 2 yellowish ones.
* The contrast usually isn't superbad either, but can easily stand some +20/+30.

Thank you for the feedback Kas, I appreciate it. Nearly all of the appeals have been accepted and the other photos are back in the queue after some adjustments.
