I signed on today to find numerous recent 123rf rejections, all for composition/lighting.

Including this one:



There is nothing wrong with the lighting, and the composition is fine.  And as anyone can see, it's on Shutterstock.  I'm really not one to complain, and I think it is good 123rf is raising standards.  But I gather there is a reviewer there who really doesn't know as much about composition as he/she thinks. 

Alex, it's getting annoying.

looks good to me  :)

nice shot! Its their loss.

Maybe after staring at it for a while they didn't like the blur in the front? first thing I see though is the cool colors and the lemon.

Yeah, I agree.  It is their loss.  I intended to put it on my Faves list to see how it would perform with good search exposure.  Win some, lose some.   :-\

I just had 25 of 26 images rejected for the same reason!  I have decided not to upload to them anymore. This was acepted by SS and was one of the 25 rejected: http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-20700211-a-beautiful-lakefront-home-in-the-smokey-mountains.html

why was it rejected?  Lots of sites are getting really strict about private property - houses in photos, and requiring a property release.

re: it's their loss .
what a laugh, some reviewers are so out to lunch.  selective focus is consider out of focus?
re: PR.
yes, sites seem to be stricter now. i had a photo of a dalmation squeezing its head out a window.  it was really funny. but it was reject due to PR.  the only id of the house was the house number next to the window.
i suppose i could have clone off that to avoid it.

I'd suggest the lemon end up either more screen left (by half) (my preference) or more to the right.  Either way to provide more copy space.  It would also allow the sun to show off more.  I'm not sure if you intentionally composed it that way to have the sun peek over.  The sun also looks a bit greyish.  Maybe that's the lighting rejection.  I also get the impression the horizon isn't straight.  If you drop a ruler from the top of the darkest bit of horizon, on the right side, you still have pink beneath.

Just some thoughts.

I guess it's crappy excuse cause if you designer you job is to create, compose, etc. Just get larger image and crop as you wish.
