Hi @Alex Arteaga , First to third images are out of focus. First and second are under exposed. First second horizon need to be straightened. Poor composition of fourth image. Fourth  First fourth and fifth has color fringes on the edges. Best wishes JG Photographer and Nutrition Author

these photos are fantastic, esp if they are stock. Not sure if perhaps they have a guy working there that's new and just rejecting everything he see's unless it's done by Greg Gorman himself...

By @romancephotos

Greg Gorman's pictures would also get refusals here, when they do not fit the requirements.

 

Besides all the technical issues: There are also logos and people in the pictures. People would need model releases, the logos need to get photoshopped.

 

If you are new to stock, you should consider these resources: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/tutorials.html
Please read the contributor user manual for more information on Adobe stock contributions: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/user-guide.html
See here for rejection reasons: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/reasons-for-content-rejection.html
and especially quality and technical issues: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/quality-and-technical-issues.html

Hello,

I don't think these photos are great for stock. The image quality isn't good. As @jacquelingphoto2017  mentioned they are not sharp, the first and second photo needs to be brighter and the composition isn't good for stock either. These are fine for personal use, but I doubt very much for commercial use.

Have a read of this from Adobe about how to create better photos:
