For me they look like in focus. And could be used commercially. 

 

Thank you.

First, I'm assuming these are AI, not "photos."

 

Here he's missing a pinky finger and the charts on the paper are poorly drawn.

I've been submitting 4 images that are very close and some get approved and some declined.  I'm thinking it's nothing more than different people's opinions on the review team rather than anything specific about the image itself.

That's certainly possible, but I suspect extremely rare. I would hope the moderators are trained to leave their personal opinions at the door before they sit down at their computers. Every rejection I've had since becoming a contributor have, upon close inspection, had subtle to obvious issues that I overlooked, over half of which were resubmitted and accepted following corrections. Half of the remaining rejections are probably not worth my time to correct, and I continue to consider the others for improvement and resubmission.

These all appear to be AI generated, not actual photographs.

Also, use of brand names like Kodak are not allowed.

Don't use AI text prompts as titles or descriptions.

@Nancy OShea @Has a point about the use of name like Kodak. Personally, I think most AI apps ignore such prompts in any case. The longer and more specific the prompt, the more that gets ignored. At least for now.

First of all, these are not photos. They are images. You need to label them correctly when submitting. I only looked at the first image and I saw an obvious mistake in the bottom of the pencil she is holding. The pencil is bent! I did not need to look further. Check your images for rendering errors. We constantly report that AI makes these errors and they need to be checked and corrected.

Every now and then, AI will create perfect irises and pupils. Brown ones, blue ones, green ones, grey ones, etc. You might have to center the pupils and duplicate the catchlights. Copy them and save them to your library. When AI gives you less than perfect irises in future renderings, replace them with the ones you've saved to your library. If the lighting is coming from the left, the catchlights should be on the left and vice versa. If one eye is in shadow and the other is in light, make one slightly darker or ligher as needed. If you're going for photorealistic images, keep is real. Being close to photorealism is not close enough. It has to BE photorealistic.
