There are identifying markings on the boat in the first image. In the remainder of the images, there are many people, some recognizable. The standard is that if a person would be able to recognize themselves in your image, you need a model release from them to use the image commercially.

You also have your watermark on the images, which is not allowed by Adobe Stock.

The reasons are, as others laid out, not ridiculous, but very founded. The mausoleum needs a property release, or you need to prove that the property release is not necessary. In addition, there are recognizable people on your pictures. The boat has sign on it that need to be edited out. In Addition to what Nancy showed: 40F561C4-D6FD-46CD-9A46-E6160E674484.jpeg But the moderator refused on the first error he or she found.

Hi @Nik98 ,

There are at least three people in the photo that you must get release from. Once the person can recognize himself in an image it requires an MR. Here is one recognizable person, possibly 2.

I know the reasons are sometimes far-fetched. At the same time this mausoleum has been photographed millions of times…forget and move on. The same for your boat. It is a scene that has been photographed thousands of times. To pass the pill, I'm going to tell you an anecdote that happened to me. On a Stock site I submitted a photo where it was written Parisian. Also I reversed it. It was refused to me because of the word Parisian and of problem of sharpness and because one could read the word on a reflection of bodywork. He told me that Parisien is a protected name. I reversed the photo and it was accepted. So my advice if this happens to you do not insist. Save your energy to take beautiful original photos with subjects that will appeal to buyers. As for the one that is not accepted, make a beautiful photo album for you and your loved ones.

To add what's already been said about watermarks, etc.. I wouldn't waste time submitting B&W photos.  Stock Customers want full color.  If the project designer specifies B&W, customers can easily grayscale a color image.

 

Also read about known image restrictions.  Some landmarks & buildings are protected and can't be used for commercials/advertising.

Anitkabir was completed in 1953, it is the dominant element of your photos, so clearly that is an IP rejection if you don't have a release. It is not ridiculous, you are breaking the rules. Property release and protection guidelines for Adobe Stock The rules are stricter than the law, and you cannot use other accepted pictures to prove anything, because they may have had releases.

I didn't check the exposure, but I would expect to find this picture underexposed.

As @jacquelingphoto2017 says, there are recognizable individuals in the picture. I see about 4 at least:

Abambo_0-1664797875687.png

In addition, you do not need the full-size picture to see, that there are also technical issues with this picture.

I would suspect exposure (the only susceptibly sharp element in the picture is underexposed), composition error, chromatic aberration, maybe also white balance problems. There may also IP issues on the bus and the monument.

Hi @Nik98 ,

All your photos are underexposed, not in sharp focus and noisy. The photo with the boats has color fringing. You must zoom your image to between 100 and 200% to find quality issue.

jacquelingphoto2017_0-1664731164094.png

For buildings to be accepted without a property release it must be clear that it is a part of public space or landscape and must not be the main focus of the capture. The writing on the building will also attract IP rejection. You will benefit a great deal from Learning what will attract IP rejections. Be sure to read all the referred links.

It is good learning what Adobe is looking for.

Here are some further tips that you'll benefit from. I suggest you read-up on all the topic on both pages.

Regards

Jacquelin
