I tried to submit the attached picture, but it was denied due to being out of focus. I do realise most of this picture is out of focus, but would consider that one still useful as a stock contribution?

I would say the out of focus has been overdone a little...

Alright. When I took it I liked it that way, and when I uploaded this one I might have only looked at the thumbnail. Thanks for your input.

The picture is nice, even that I do not like the fact that it is quite out of focus everywhere I look except in the very middle. And it may even not be sharp there, as I can appreciate only at a reduced size picture. You should have closed a little bit the aperture. I  take normally pictures of this style at different apertures and select the picture afterwards.

Hi el zutterino, Take a look at this section of the photo at 200% magnification. Very little is in focus. No buyer can fix that. The left side of the gold stripe is the only sharp area. Study these helpful links and always examine your contributions to Adobe stock at 100 - 200 % to find flaws that cause rejection. Best regards, JH
