I am guessing it is too much soft focus. Whilst the image is nice, if a graphic designer wanted to crop image; there leaves little room to use image for multiple purposes.
When zooming in to 100% view, there was only a thin strip of the concrete/pavement that appeared to be in focus. There was noticeable noise in the out of focus areas. The photo is quite dark, and the histogram reflects that. There isnt any information in about the top 3rd of the histogram, which represents the whites and highlights in an image. Correcting the exposure further introduced noise unfortunately.
I wasn't able to determine what the subject of the photo was. I wonder how this would be used commercially?
It helps to include the metadata with photos as it allows us to give more meaningful advice on potential settings changes, etc.
I hope that helps!
Since you're new to Adobe Stock, I suggest a careful read of the submission guidelines.
Adobe Stock customers expect the highest visual and technical quality for use in commercial projects. Whatever you submit must be suitable for use in printed posters, brochures, T-shirts, calendars, magazines, billboards, digital video, etc...
Find subjects that will appeal to a wide range of buyers and uses. Select your 3 best images and compare them with other Stock inventory to ensure they are as good if not better than what Stock has on hand. The key to successful Stock photography is giving customers what they want. They want high quality images, not snapshots.
Better luck with your next submission. 🙂
