  1. Good day to all reading my message here. I'm a new contributor to Alamy, and my most recent submission was once again failed by the Alamy QC team for a second running time. Reasons given were; (1) Noise, and (2) Out-of-focus. My photos are all taken by drone shots by setting to 48mp, featuring pictures mostly of: 1) changing landscapes 2) environmental impacts of deforestation 3) global warming; since these are what Alamy are seeking based on their current requirements. Before my submissions, I ensure these pictures are filtered for noise reduction and with no other touch-ups since the quality itself is excellent enough to hopefully pass QC. I do, however, acknowledge that the pics include the whole landscape covering a wide area since they are taken above ground level at bird's eye view. Is that why Alamy says my submissions are "out-of-focus"? So, my questions are: 1) does filtering for noise reduction contributes for further noisy-grainy results as mentioned by QC? 2) how do I reduce the out-of-focus issue, being these pictures are and will be taken by my drones each time? 3) how do I get pass the QC, as at the time of this writing, I'm still caught at the "waiting / holding period" for 3 basic picture submissions to be passed before my work can be up-on-sale-stage? Awaiting for all your kind advice and comments after this. My thanks in advance.
