I do like that. Looks like you went the opposite of going lighter and went darker, but the contrast is much better and gives the image some moodiness and drama.

If you view your sky at 200% you can see artifacts. Also the sun is overexposed. Your composition needs improvement. Bring your horizon down to 1/3 of the photo and the street down to the corner. Lines should be coming out of the cornes and leading into a 1/3 intersection in the photo. Read about the Rule of Thirds in internet. The vehicle is out of focus and should be removed. The wall is too distinct for the foreground and adds nothing to the photo. It too shold be removed. Remove all noise an

Phones are known to “enhance” the viewer's experience, but they do not provide you with an honest “view” of the asset. The web browser, by the way, also does a poor job with this.

The ophotos are too small for us to review. You need to post the original files that you submitted to Adobe.

Here I already see composition and exposure problems. 

But please post the originals.

Definitately some exposure issues. Both images could be brightened. This will start to blow out the already blown out highlights, so those would need to be reduced as well. A lack of contract overall as well. PXL can be saved. I'm not sure about the other. The grass in the foreground lack any detail.

The camera is not necessarily the problem. The exposure issues can be fixed in Photoshop. Here I brightened the foreground, darkened the sky (that bright spot in the center was shown as being overly exposed in the Camera Raw Filter), and I added just a touch of vignetting. I also dehazed the mountains in the background, but not very carefully. Those should have brightened as well but I did this rather quickly.PXL_20230426_170652685.jpg

In my view they are much too dark. There also may be a problem with sharpness - which aperture? Remember - microstock images are not art.

Weird, it is actually quite dark when viewed here while the brightness is fine when viewed in the gallery app 🤔.

Who says microstock images are not art? Who buys our images and for what purpose? When I Google my photos, I find that my Adobe account is linked to several companies and websites that deal in wall art and posters. When I view my sold photos, at least half of them are of an artistic nature. I feel that my portfolio does best when I offer all potential buyers what they are looking for. More important, my photos need to stand out to the human eye above other photos in the database.

Who says microstock images are not art?


By @RALPH_L

Microstock is about craft, not art. But that does not exclude beautifully edited pictures if they are well-made. Like a stool, it's comfortable to sit on and has a gorgeously carved design.

True @Abambo craft is a must. Publishers are probably more interested in scene realistic photos. However, as you know, Adobe has many partner contractors that are also selling our images for use on products, such as wallmurals, prints and such. Surely, a customer desires something artistic and beautiful hanging in their livingroom.

Here one such example:

It is highly unlikely that one would hang a substantial amount of waste on the wall of their dwelling.
