I tried uploading this to Adobe Stock but it said there are technical issues meaning it wasn't accepted.

Could anyone outline why?

Hi @Levi5CCA , I like the photo, however too much is out of focus. There is not enough depth of field. Also it is flat. There is not enough contrast. Best wishes JG Photographer and Nutrition Author

It doesn't look much like iced coffee, either.  Stock photography is less artistic expression and more realism.  A coffee drink should look like a coffee drink, not fruit punch.

Thanks, I can see that now you explained it. Not sure what you mean about contrast though as when I add contrast it looks way worse.

Contrast is easily overdone. It's like the salt in the soup. You need it, but too much is not good.

I don't know what programs you use to edit your files, but contrast can be added by more than one method. Depending on your workflow, you could use a contrast slider or a curve tool, not to forget the more subtle adaptions like texture and clarity (Adobe jargon).

Hi @Levi5CCA ,

1). You must be able to clearly see the difference between the background and the subject even though they are basically the same color. 

2). The variation of shades must be clear and not looking as though they're running in each other as one shade. The blacks and whites are what determine these variations. It is illustrated on the histogram when it stretches from the left point (blacks) to the right point (whites). Avoid clippings.

 

I hope this helps

This is what iced coffee looks like before you mix it, but if you're referring to the contrast or something I can understand what you mean, please iterate what makes you think so, thanks for the feedback.

Are you saying I should remove the coloured effect?

Yes, probably. If it's done as shown, it looks like an erronous colour cast. See also @Nancy OShea 's remarks.

If this is a coloured effect, it reminds me of developing and printing film, (which I used to do) where light would get into the back of the camera and onto the film causing this type of effect when printed. It isn't good!
