B&W images rejected for Lighting/Color Balance

Recommended Posts

Just a minor complaint. Two of my images were rejected for the ever popular Lighting/Color Balance.


These were toned B&W images of boats on a sandy beach, one toned blue and one sepia. They both had sunlit and shadowed areas, and I thought made stunning photos. Don't reviewers realize that monochrome has different standards from color images? 


Of course a blue or sepia toned image will have an odd color balance. And what makes monochrome work is often the play of light and shadows--sometimes dense shadows.


I guess it could be that I should leave the toning to the buyer, or leave the entire B&W conversion from color to the buyer.


The commercial use? I was trying for boat rentals by tourists.


Ah, well. Mox Nix. Moving on.
