For Alamy, would you clone out wire or not ?

Advertisers love Animals, so this shot might stand a chance on Alamy, especially with the space to tthe right for text ....... but should I clone out the wire ?

Yes clone it out; but you have to be good at it because Alamy will reject for noticeable retouching.

Take it out, the background is out of focus, so shouldn't be too tricky, if you're careful on the neck.

Re: For Alamy, would you clone out wire or not ?

Why don't you do a cloned-out version + compare the two ... might actually look better with the wire in Might sound silly, but I think it adds to the humour But let's see it with the wire cloned out (it's your pic, you do it ) It'll give you a practise run too, to see if you can do it seamlessly, 'cos if you get found out, it won't make a damn bit of difference to sales whether you cloned it out or not

Knew that Alamy didn't allow altering of shots but what they won't know won't hurt them - and only a 10 minute job!

Re: For Alamy, would you clone out wire or not ?

Instead of cloning that wire out it might be cute to composite a similarly exposed picket fence to hide the wire.

Someone using that photo for commercial purposes would have an excellent space for ad copy..

It is much easier to do that than make a wire disappear that will bear scrutiny on that highly varied background..

Can see where you're going with the picket fence but you'd lose the neck and you've got all that lovely empty sky over on the right for copy. I'd even be tempted to lose a little foliage on the LHS and add some more on RHS to maximise the space!

Is there any penalty for that? Couldn't you either submit the original photo, or resubmit with a better cropping job? From my understanding, the only penalty for failure is having to to through QA again if it happens to often (as well as all the photos in that batch being rejected out of hand).

Going through their "reasons for rejection" FAQ, it seems that retouching per se isn't disqualifying, just doing a poor job of it.

Both work - with the right fence you get a lot of rich texture from the wood.
