I personally feel that the image is ok. The only thing I could imagine is the soft focus.

Hello,

You have a white balance problem!! 

You're missing some whites and blacks as well. You should set your white and black points. The photo needs more contrast.

He's quite handsome, but the frame is underexposed by .5 - .75 stops. If you lift the exposure, I think this will get accepted.

Too dark.  Needs more light and less blue/purple tones.

Hi @mjmagee ,

Nice shot. It would be good if you could have gotten a better depth. There is a white balance issue. Too much blue.

As others said, a great picture, may be a little bit too much “edits”. For stock, you will need a correctly exposed asset, however. Besides that, the white balance and maybe a less prominent vignetting, you should also pay attention to artefacts like this one:

(there are more in this picture).
