Bus Stop in the Mist

This image was rejected by Shutterstock and before you all jump in and say "noise" "focus" "composition" I can tell you it was none of those. Nor was it "exposure" and no it wasn't intellectual property. It was for White Balance. The thing is I don't know how to fix this. I feel it should be easy to fix but I need advice. Thanks Jane

Ok I will try the above. I did use the eyedropper on the footpath but the temp came in at 4300K and that looked a little blue. There is detail in the white but this is a 72dpi so a lot is lost at that resolution. Interestingly I have already bumped the saturation on the tree and the autumn leaves but I will try a little more. It  must have been too subtle. At the moment the only rejection reason is the white balance. Maybe it is that when I resubmit they will then say "focus issues", "noise", "not enough info in the highlights". Who knows. But thanks for the advice. I will cool it down a bit or rather take out some yellow. Seeing it here it looks too yellow. Mind you that is why I stopped and took the image. It was very misty and yellow.

Unless you can paste in another sky, I would forget it. Just toss it and move on.

move on. The dark tones and uninteresting sky ? Sometimes it is not worth persisting with "adjusting" it. The sky is so bright and the fence all in shadow. Reshhoot when the light is there

Listen peoples, I only asked how to fix the WB. There is no sky in this image. it is all mist. The light was beautiful and I chose the right time of day to make this image. The reviewer is not supposed to pick one, he/she is supposed to give all reasons so that we contributors don't waste our time trying to fix an image if possible. Shutterstock have told me that. Stock photos are used RinderArt in places other than product or service. You, I think, would be surprised the images I have sold. Shutterstock are keen to get away from the traditional and rather hackneyed images that are still being created by people who are lost in the world of stock and never see anything else. Buyers want something different from the crap that you see on the stock pages, the over used unoriginal predictable images that populate the stock pages. So again I repeat the sublties of this image have been lost because I downsized by reducing the dpi. I only asked how to fix the WB. I should have known better than to ask on this forum. I don't enjoy dealing with the negativity I find here,  against me and against most people who post here.

Stay calm Jane. Why are you upset? No one has been mean but rather tried to help.  "Crap in stock"??? Really?? Are you going to fix this??? Why do you need critique?? You will note that for many of us stock is but a small part of what we do and is not our centre of life. ::(

You are right Mark. Why do I come here? I stopped coming here. I never found it helpful. I found all the comments particularly unhelpful and rather tedious. I am glad you work outside of stock. Good to hear. I just wanted to know as stock producers what you thought on how to fix the white balance, given the white balance is the temp of the image. Chris gave me his advice and that was fine. The fact that I had already done what he suggested couldn't have been known by him. By "fixing" the image the way he said the image became much cooler but I find Shutterstock like warm images. I don't like warm images. They tend to lean to the warm image side, the oversaturated image side. I don't mean to the excess but if images could be a tad warmer a tad more saturated then good. So as good stock contibutors that you all are and having had the experience with SS that you have and the success with SS that you have had I asked in good faith what WB they could possibly want.I actually know what WB I like for the shot.  I will not come to this forum again. I will not ask again for your expert advice. I find it predictable and tedious. So I will stay calm Markrhiggins by staying away. Don't bother replying to this. I will delete it without reading it.
