  • Reasons for rejection / editing advice

    Recently, my queue of 5 images were all rejected, as apparently none of them met the standards. Since there were no specific reasons for these being rejected, and they were all immediately deleted, I'd like to ask some of the more experienced photographers / screeners for some advice on why these were rejected, and what I can do to improve them in terms of post-processing and shooting techniques / camera settings. I use a Nikon D3, which is a fairly old DSLR but takes great quality photos. I use Lightroom to edit these photos, and I am fairly new to photography.

    Here are the rejected images in full-size:

    Hi, could you clarify these points please:

    1. there were no specific reasons for these being rejected
    2. they were all immediately deleted

    It is not possible to reject an image without providing a reason, and rejected images will remain visible for several weeks, so I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to say.

      Hello, thank you for responding - when I look back at my queued photos, It says I have had 0 rejected photos in the past 7 days, but when I visit the upload page, I apparently have 19 rejected photos, and -14 queue slots left meaning I have basically been queue-banned for 2 weeks. On the rejected photos page, I have 0 rejected photos in the database. I cannot look back at these photos. I assume they simply rejected them without commenting on it. This also isn't the first time this has happened. The first time was the exact same. I did re-read the guidelines, and realised my photos were all backlit. This time, it seems like all these photos meet the guidelines, but there is obviously something wrong with all of them.​

            Hmmm...indeed I'm seeing the same thing that you are, which means this must be due to some kind of system bug. Rejections should remain visible (with rejection reasons) for 14 days after the initial rejection. We have no way to delete them/make them disappear as seems to have happened, and given that you should only have 5 slots as a new uploader anyway, definitely something odd going on.

            In any case, for the images in your post I can give these comments:

            1. contrast, soft, centering
            2. centering, contrast/backlit
            3. centering, contrast, colour
            4. contrast
            5. contrast/colour, soft, centering

            3 and 5 might be fixable with minimal effort; the others might not be.

              Thanks very much for the feedback. It seems like my main problem is contrast, which is probably an unfixable issue and just means I'll have to shoot at better times and with better weather. My camera also was on a pretty soft shooting setting and I did not realise. I think I have been over-post processing, and have used too much de-noise and that's why they also seem soft. Regardless thanks for the feedback, and I'm going to apply this to my future photos which will hopefully be accepted some time.

                Something similar happened to me. I recently joined Jet Photos and my 5 pictures completely disappeared. I did get an email saying they were rejected but they didn't show up at all in my rejected pictures. I was wondering if I had done something wrong or if there was maybe an error.

                  I'd like some advice from screeners about the photos I plan to add to my queue. It would be great for me to know if these now meet the standards for JetPhotos, and if they don't it would be nice to get some feedback.

                  I would especially like to know about the contrast in the last 2 photos (A350, A380), as I have quite a few photos in conditions like this.

                  Any advice would be appreciated, thanks -Henry​

                    1. blurry, noisy, centering
                    2. horizon, borderline color
                    3. dirty, centering
                    4. contrast, overprocessed
                    5. centering, contrast, overprocessed

                        Hello again, I have some shots that I plan to add to the queue and would be thankful if I could get some pre-screening advice.
