I am pretty new to publishing Stock Photos and took some pictures out of my existing Portfolio to post them. Most were accepted, several rejected - all for technical issue reason. Some I understand (not my best works surely), some I really dont. Others have been accepted, which I would say are party less good than the ones rejected. If anyone could offer me feedback for a few of the rejected ones, that would be much appreciated.
Nice photos @claudiusw61677472 , but they have a few problems.
The first two have some noise. Do a little more noise reduction.
See my photo at the bottom. The left is yours and the right is my corrected version. Notice the slight difference.
Your second photo is not quite sharp enough so you need some sharpening. There is also a purple tint in the sky. Worst of all, there is a sensor spot at the top middle off to the right.
The last photo needs sharpening and noise reduction. Also, trhe vertical lines should be straightened.
Adobe Stock customers expect the highest visual and technical quality for use in their own projects.
See links below.
Better luck with your next submission. 🙂
The 1st image (the locks) suffers from too shallow DOF and poor composition. The large featureless area on the right adds nothing to the image, and the leaning fence is distracting. I think it would have been more interesting if more than one lock was in focus.
Ralph has pointed out the technical issues with the sunset image. Keep in mind that Adobe Stock already has millions of excellent sunrise and sunset images in the database, and for any new ones to gain attention they must be technically perfect and unique.
The 3rd image (vanishing road) has some artifacts from overly aggressive processing. Zoom into the horizon where the trees meet the sky and you will see them. Also in the leaves of the tree. The sky has some weird purple and pink artifacts and other spots. Whenever you have clear blue sky it is essential to zoom in to at least 100% and inspect every bit of it to make sure sensor spots and lens spots have been corrected.
The 4th image has noise, fringing and a focus problem. Only the curlicue on the fence seems to be in focus; everything else falls out of focus. The verticals need to be vertical. I think this scene, with the old, rusty fence could have been more interesting if you had tried different compositions.
Thank you all so much for your honest feedback! I will give more thought and work to the details you pointed out!
