Adobe always gives a general reason for rejection. My guess is that they were rejected because of technical problems.
The first three photos are very dark. In some of them the depth of field is too shallow.

Too many to comment on each one. The first one is underexposed and not well composed. If the ladybug was meant to be the focal point of the composition you should have gotten much closer or zoomed in.

Hi @Alan Smithee 93 ,

All your photos are underexposed with too much out of focus. The strawberry leaf has lost details in the highlights. 

To improve the quality of your files I suggest you read-up on what Adobe is looking for and the tips you need to improve your submission. Also these additional tips will help you to see where you need to improve and how.

Best wishes

Hello,

To reiterate, your photos are too dark - underexposed, not enough is in focus, the ladybird photo is too small and dark to see what it actually is, (it seems it was dark anyway, and you used a flash). Other points to consider are the composition, and most important, commercial use of these photos. How can they be used in a commercial setting? What could they be used for?

Have a read of this from Adobe about how to create better photos:

Do not load more than two or three images, it's getting crowded, and chances are, that the error is more or less the same. And then always post the reason, that Adobe returned. My guess here is "Technical Issues".

 

I just loaded your dark red rose. It's underexposed, as the histogram shows:

Abambo_0-1662642948092.png

Focus should be at the heart of the rose:

Abambo_1-1662643017699.png

In addition, the picture is noisy (here at 100% 

Abambo_2-1662643130696.png

)

and is missing contrast.

I've found that if I do too much retouching (spot healing, cloning, etc.), they get rejected.

Hi @thekohlervillager,

I'm not sure why it is that way with you. There are times I have to do a lot and at critical areas and my files do not get rejected. I believe there are other reasons that you might not ID.

Regards

Jacquelin

I just submitted several photos that got accepted this time, after getting rejected the first time. Only difference was I did more spot healing and cloning the first time.

I recently got a rejection, where I hastily made a healing correction. I didn't check full size, but the moderator did and detected the artefacts I introduced. I redid the correction, this time with more care.

If the spot healing and cloning are not skillfully done, that can result in a technical rejection.
