Today, this photographed became my second flame on Istock, meaning it just crossed the 100 sales mark. It is one of those shots I had to fight for to get it passed inspection. It took 4 different submissions before they accepted the image. Two of the difficulties I had to address on it were saturation and motion blur. This was shot during a sunset, and the already colorful ride looked naturally over saturated from the strong summer sunset light. So I had to explain to the reviewer that there was no extra saturation added in post production. Nor was there any blur added. Well, the version that got through was the completely unaltered shot – something I never do. Glad to see it was worth the fight. I usually never attempt a third time after two refusals. Let alone a fourth!
