Hi @Kelsey22447451fjef,

Put yourself in the customer's shoes.  Why would I buy these?  What could I use them for commercially?

 If the answer to either question is "I don't know,"  chances are it's not right for Adobe Stock.

 

Read the Stock Contributor User Guide.  Compare your work with other images in the Adobe Stock database.  HINT:  Adobe Stock already has millions & millions of plant images.  If you want to be successful at Stock Photography, find less well-represented subjects to photogra

Read the Stock Contributor User Guide.  Compare your work with other images in the Adobe Stock database.  HINT:  Adobe Stock already has millions & millions of plant images.  If you want to be successful at Stock Photography, find less well-represented subjects to photograph.  And make sure you have 100% legal ownership of the subjects.  If you don't own it, you need a signed release from the legal owner/artist/designer.  Also if you take pictures of human models, your models must sign a model release to use their likeness commercially.

Better luck next time.  Happy 2022!

Hello,

Yep, focus and exposure are the main issues! Sadly, not good enough for commercial use!
