Like @Marianne-Deiters said, the photos are not in focus. Some have artifacts, some are under exposed (the candles). Others have overexposed highlights (the dogs nose).

Hi @RED5D67, These are nice snapshots for Instagram or Flickr but Adobe Stock customers come here for images of interest that are socially relevant.  For example: climate change, family, education, transportation, energy, architecture, environment, technology, business, medicine, health & fitness, beauty, food & drink, holidays, etc...  Customers expect technically & visually perfect images for commercial use on product packages and merchandise, marketing ads, videos, etc...  Read these lin...

Hi @RED5D67,

Look on Adobe Stock below.  You're competing with 1.5 million high quality images of candles in Adobe Stock's database. 

https://stock.adobe.com/search?k=candle

 

Be creative.  Find other subjects that are less well-represented.

I agree with Nancy that you're unlikely to get a candle image accepted or ever sold, so it's not a good use of your time to concentrate on such images; however, it can be a useful subject to help you improve your photography skills. Use a tripod, focus on the wick, and experiment with shutter speeds to see what speed is best to capture the flame without too much motion blur.

Flowers, sunsets and puppies - all of these categories are already over-represented in the Adobe Stock database. In order for your images in these categories to be accepted into the database they need to be unique and perfectly executed. Search in the database for each of these types of images to see what Adobe considers good quality. While using these subjects to practice your photography and editing skills is a worthwhile pursuit, I wouldn't waste any time submitting them for Stock.

Hi @RED5D67,

These are nice snapshots for Instagram or Flickr but Adobe Stock customers come here for images of interest that are socially relevant.  For example: climate change, family, education, transportation, energy, architecture, environment, technology, business, medicine, health & fitness, beauty, food & drink, holidays, etc... 

 

Customers expect technically & visually perfect images for commercial use on product packages and merchandise, marketing ads, videos, etc...

Hope that helps.
