  1. Hi guys, So I decided to make my first attempt of submitting images to Alamy. Per the requirement, it was only 4 images. I had done it about 24 hours ago and have got their QC report, here it is: Hello Shashank Unfortunately, your test submission has failed. We found the following errors: Filename Rejection reason Watercock_Male_Female.jpg Camera shake Soft or lacking definition We need 4 images to pass our initial quality check before you can submit more. Am I correct in understanding this is a partial failure i.e. 3 of the images were found acceptable, but the entire submission was rejected because of this one image? Please guide. Also since the issue pointed out was softness, I'd like to share a few screenshots for your review: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B6CczEu2s7SPV0lNY1VpWmxTd0E&usp=drive_web. I'm using a Nikon D5300, and a Nikkor AF-S 80-400G ED VR. I had done minimal post-processing on this and no sharpening, but I had honestly thought a little bit of sharpening done by a prospective client (as pointed out in the QC guidelines) was all that would be needed for the image, as there was a fair bit of detail. I considered doing a little of sharpening on the image post the report, but have decided to chuck it all together and try another image. Thoughts?
