I read the "quality issues" and "quality standard" copy from Adobe. What is wrong here?
I assume that the given Picture would be the one you send in for approval and it would be rejected?! Maybe its because its way to dark and not very detailed.
Before you submit, please review the submission guidelines carefully and compare your work with other Stock inventory. To be accepted, your work should be as good or better than what's already represented in your keyword category.
Hope that helps.
I agree with @Henrik Heigl, there is too much negative space around the moon and it's not zoomed in enough to make out the details.
Try comparing this to other moon photos already in the Adobe Stock database. Even if this photo is accepted you have some pretty stiff competition.
Good luck with future submissions 🙂
The subject is too small and not focused due to lens blur.
Work with it into something like this:
As others have said it's blurry, too small in the frame and lacking detail. Compare your image to the many other moon images in the database to help you discern the expected level of quality that Adobe is looking for.
Q: How many Moon images are in Stock inventory?
A: 1.7 Million.
Given that, are yours really better than what Stock already has for sale?
Being a successful Stock contributor is about more than image quality. It's picking the right subjects and doing things that nobody else has thought of before.
Congratulations. But yes, as Nancy pointed out, with 1.7 million moon pictures, there won't be big sales.
Mopy approach to this is: I don't shoot the moon for stock, but when I have a moon picture that is good, I submit. And that just for the fun having a moon picture (or anything else) in my portfolio.
