I'm new to adobe stok, and several of my files have been refused for technical issues. For example this one as an attachment. Could someone tell me what are in detail the technical issues that motivate the denial?
I've read Adobe's help content on this, but based on your experience as a contributor, what are the most common rejection reasons for newbies?
Thanking you for your help.
The first thing that stands out is the blown-out highlight of the archway. When enlarged a bit as well, the detail is rather lost. The pixels appear more smudged - so I think in-camera noise reduction has been applied, and using noise reduction tends to smudge the pixels in order to reduce the grain-like appearance you get when using high ISO.
In this shot you are shooting into the light, the camera is exposing more for the shadows, so because you have light coming from the archway it will be overexposed.
