When is it too much Photoshop?
Forgive me if this is the wrong place to post this question. I am relatively new to DT as a contributor, although I have used over 80 images from DT as a customer.
Although the images I have presented were never taken to sell as stock photographs, I thought I would start with a few that I had saved in my computer and see where that led me.
After uploading several, I find that I am more baffled as to which photos to upload, and how much to "enhance" before I send to DT. I have figured out that although I love corel and the painting effects it can create with the photos, this is probably not a good idea for DT. I was a bit confused about this as the first few images I submitted were altered in this fashion and were accepted, recent photos have been rejected. Unfortunately, since I have such a large supply of photographs, I submitted a number thinking they might be acceptable. Now my acceptance rating is in the toilet, and I certainly don't want to waste the administrator's time nor do I want a bad rep. (Not to mention that keywording is a tough skill to learn).
I have a few images from a couple of years ago that we took of Santa. The enhancements to the portraits in my opinion make them charming. However, I'm not sure if I should submit them enchanced or would the administrators rather see them as raw images and allow the designers to alter them.
Unfortunately, I can't find a way to show them in this blog without subjecting them to rejection.
Any insight you can give would be greatly appreciated.
P.s. I changed my photo to one of the enhanced images.
