So far so good ... 15 pictures in 1 week ... - Dreamstime

After a week of uploading and waiting for approval ... I ended it up with fifteen pictures approved. I nerver thought that my pictures are qualified to be on-line here beside the professionals photographer with a modest camera and lens kits.

It has been very excited and challenging to translation the "pro" description of the rejection into my picture which is rejected like "over filtered". Over filtered for what ? too much sharpness? remove to much noise ? Burn the picture too much ? etc...

Then, after reviewing the DT pictures, reading PS book, I started to have a idea of what DT is looking for as setting (quality) and type of picture.

What did I leaned so far as an amateur is

- to set the exposition as close as much to the white burned color, very bright.

- to remove the noise as much as possible then apply a Gaussian blur on it.

- always to verify the picture at 100% size or even more for the details and sharpness.

- to remove all the details about brand, logo etc...

- to add an artificial blue sky as much as possible

- when ever I have a person (can see them them or only their back or not) I have to be removed them or set the license as editorial.

(it doesn't mean that what I listed above are the right things to do but it what I did to avoid rejections of my submissions)

Overall, I got down the PhotoShop book +500 pages out of my bookshelf :) and read it as a novel before sleeping again that I did not do for long long long time ago ;)
