ICM

Recommended Posts

I just failed to get a couple of images accepted because one was soft or lacked definition.  The thing is they were ICM images that had received some pretty good feedback elsewhere.  Looking at some ICM images that are on sale it could be argued that pretty much all of them are soft or lack definition, it's kind of part and parcel of the technique.  Anyone got any pointers on how this rule is applied with this type of shot and how some get through?

Oh, right. Motion blur.

I think it has to be obvious in a thumbnail. I have only 2 up and you can identify sharp detail despite the blur.

Hard to tell from the pop-up but Philippe's trees will be sharp at the edges. The blur is only in one axis.

Frames of reference, old chap. Same thing.

The clue's in the name: Intentional Camera Movement.  As opposed to motion blur, which normally implies it's the subject that's moving (although the camera may be moved too, in which case it's panning).

I agree with replies. Alamy is very good at determining acceptable blur, particularly when the intention is clear. One of mine as an example C50EWN

I suspect the answer is that you're relatively new, and QC don't trust you yet.

If you had 2000 images up that they were happy with, they'd figure it was intentional.

As you've not, they're erring on the side of caution.

So, to answer your question of how to get "this type of shot and how some get through?"

 

Wait till you've a lot more stuff up there....

If you post an example, opinions could be offered. The image needs to be hosted somewhere, then just post the URL.

Thanks for the feedback.  FWIW this was the image, maybe not everyone's cup of tea.
