here is another high key image that was failed because of lighting.

There is no direction to the lighting on the baby's face. The lighting is overall very flat and appears to be coming from overhead. The image is very crowded with no space in front of the baby's face which shows poor composition. The white feather on the right side of the image is distracting. On a PPA competition judging scale (and I know that we are not talking about competition images here) I doubt that this image would score a 70.
