Model Releases

When exactly do you need a model release. I have a pic of my son swimming. You can not see his face, it is him mid-stroke with his swim cab and one arm out of the water. You can not see his name on the cap either.

Newbie question, sorry.

You should upload a model release for such an image.

If someone can recognise themselves then you need a release, and even if you think its doubtful its best to get the release if possible to cover youself

Every shot I uploaded that had people in it has been rejected so far. I have one of a guy in Vietnam holding up sticks of incense in front of an alter. His raised arm completely covers his face but the shot was rejected because I didn't have a model release. They seem to be fairly strict about that here. (I'm still learning the ropes myself.)
