Could anyone provide me with some feedback on this rejected image?

 The issue was "quality issues" , I would love some feedback on how I can improve this photo, or if I should just scrap it.

 

Also, I am quite curious since not only did I submit this yesterday, and it is one out of a lot of images I submitted, it was rejected, despite having some images that have not been reviewed after 20 days.  Are images randomly reviewed, or reviewed in order? Just something I am curious about.

Hello,

Unfortunately, the overall quality isn't that good.

Why?

From a commercial point of view, the aesthetic value doesn't say a lot. What is the point of this photo? How can it be used in a commercial setting? You need to ask yourself these questions.

Artefacts is a problem as well:

Images seem to be reviewed as they come, but there doesn't seem to be any pattern. It is as it is.

Personally, I don't think you can do much to improve the photo, so I would scrap it for use in Adobe Stock - personal use - fine!

And remember, I don't think it has a lot of commercial use.

The composition of the image is rather lackluster and the subject is of little interest.

 

As for your other question, I have been having images reviewed within minutes of submission, while others are getting reviewed in the order they were submitted. This is out of the ordinary but it has been happening this way for me for some time.

1. The whole left half of your image is out of focus (blurry).

 

2. Compare your work with Stock inventory. Stock has over 46 million other plants available in every size, shape and color. Even if this gets accepted later, the likelihood of you making a sale from it is very low. There's too much competition from other high quality submissions.

 

  • Find other subjects to photograph that are in demand and have less representation. 
  • Take multiple photos at different camera settings, angles and distances from your subject. 
  • Choose the very best one for Stock.

 

Hope that helps. Good luck.

The quality issues are, at least partially, caused by the limits of your camera:

These here are typical artefacts from an image taken with a small sensor camera like your phone.

 

Officially, images are reviewed on a first come, first served basis. However, we saw now for a while, that there is also a certain randomness added to the reviewing procedure.

Hi @molly36947256amm8 ,

There is too much negative space. I'd make the photo on landscape and closer.

The depth is too shallow. Too much of the frame is out of focus.

It is slightly underexposed.

The color needed some adjustment.

Best wishes

Jacquelin
