    "Out of focus"


      I am a new contributor and recently submitted a batch of images as a trial. 2 of the images came back with the rejection of "out of focus." At 100% the only place I notice "out of focus" is in the water. Is that the only place others see?

          I wish there was a way to contest the decisions that their algorithm makes (it can't be people making these decisions)

            In my personal opinion the contrast is overdone in this image and the saturation appears unnatural. You may find a better result submitting this image with less post processing.


            Kind regards,

              The detail in this sample is very soft.  If you did use post-processing on it, then consider submitting it "as-is".   The leaf clusters are undefined.  The branches and limbs of the trees are all rather fuzzy.  There is nothing sharp.  Take a look at the photo I have attached.  Look at the more distant elements.  You will see that there is an area that is sharp, and then there is a fall-off to a softer area. Everything does not have to be super-sharp.  At least your primary subject should be sharp.  This one was rejected because of focus.  I think the problem is that it is a rolling focus.  Nevertheless, there are very sharp points and very shallow points and plenty of increments. 




              I hope this helps
