Sure, my bad sorry 🙂 Attached some pictures. Do you know if I can see the keywords after rejecting I used? I want to save them because, I did the work and maybe I need them in the future again. I have another question, is it possible that the Adobe Stock account gets blocked if I have too many rejected pictures? 

 

I have to reduce the quality of the images, that I can upload all 10 units. Thats only for information.

 

Thank you very much for your help!

Hard to hear 😄 But I'm completely new and this is the only way to learn. Thank you very much for the fast feedback and your comment. I will check for the next pictures. Is it too much saturation or is it ok, so I'm mean it is too colourful ?

DSC00398.jpg - underexposed, not in sharp focus 

DSC01783.jpg - underexposed, soft focus, chromatic aberration 

DSC2390.jpg - depth of field is too,shallow, rendering most of the image out of focus 

 

Before you take/submit any more images, study why you are not achieving focus - camera shake, subject motion, camera settings, uncalibrated lens/camera combo...

Thank you too 🙂 I have Sony A7 III and Sigma 24-70 DG DN 2.8. What can be a reason here? What can I change in settings to test if its will be better?

First, Google "lens calibration test sheet" and follow the instructions to verify that it's not the camera/lens combination that is causing images to be unfocused. Then read the camera manual about all the focus features of the camera. Then understand the impact of shutter speed and aperture on focus. Then practice hand holding at different shutter speeds to learn the slowest shutter speed at which you can effectively shoot. For me, it's no less than 1/60th. Then learn the highest ISO that your camera can achieve without introducing too much noise and stay under that ISO setting. Have you taken a camera course? Start with the basics, and don't assume that just having an expensive camera is going to result in high quality images.

Thank you very much, in the theory I utnerstand all these features and how to look, in general I can speed up the shutter speed a bit. Sure I have to practice, but the most pictures are out of focus I think and that is strange. In the interenet I red that mirrorless cameras dont need a calibration? Is that wrong? Can you please have a look on the picture if this is in focus. This was made with 1/200s, ISO 100 and F4.5 so that has to be sharp? Thank you 😉

By @Niklas27818685iv0a

Correct. SLR cameras use a separate device to check focus, so there can be a difference between what the sensor/film gets and what the measure is. A mirrorless camera needs to check the focus with the sensor, which has other problems, but the lens does not need to be calibrated.

 

Your test picture is sharp, even that, when you look at the corners, you see a slight focus issue. But that could also be, the sensor was not 100% parallel to the wood. f4.5 has a small focussing plane.

That's good to know - that the lens doesn't need to be calibrated. I haven't made the transition to mirrorless because, as far as I know, no manufacturers have incorporated GPS tagging in an elegant way, so I'm clinging to my Canon 5D Mark IV until they figure that out!

Now you can evaluate the other issues that may affect focus. The sample image you posted is in sharp focus and seems to have been made under ideal circumstances with a fast shutter speed, reasonable f stop and good lighting.

Incorporating a working GPS device costs a lot of power. That's why I switch my GPS off, when inside... and forget to switch on again when outside. Mirrorless cameras are more power hungry.

I only turn on the GPS feature when traveling. I love to be able to see exactly where I was standing when I took a picture, and to see all of the images in the map in Lightroom !

Me too, but normally, I'm an hour or so into my session, before I remember to switch the GPS on.

1885: Not that this makes your picture passing the moderation, but simple adjustments make your picture better:
