Hello, can someone tell me what is wrong with my photograph? Adobe stated that it was rejected for technical issues without getting into specifics. Constructive criticism is welcome. Thanks!

Hi @Blake5C7C, I think it's fair to say that Adobe Stock already have enough leaf images with 19+ million in their database.  But if you decide to pursue this competitive category, your image and visual quality must be really top notch.  Look at what other Stock Contributors are doing in this category. Leaf Images Before submitting, examine your images at 100-200% magnification. That's when problems with focus, halos, noise and motion begin to appear.  See links below. https://helpx.adobe.co...

Photo 1: the highlighted area is overexposed. Also your image is posterized. This can be caused by too much post processing or JPEG compression. View your photos at 100 to 300%. Photo 2 and photo 4: the edges of the leaves are overexposed and no detail is to be seen. Photo 3: the leaf is under exposed.

@Blake5C7C You now have some technical reasons from others as to why your photographs are not accepted. Once you have sorted out your technical problems you can start thinking more about your subject matter. While buyers are looking for photographs of everything you can think of, most are looking for images they can use to build out a story or idea and they want photos that capture the hearts and minds of their readers and clients!

Hi @Blake5C7C , You have 3 similar images. It is best to avoid uploading similar. Each of your photos must have something new for the buyer. You need to pick a subject that buyers can buy for a reason. A leaf of a particular tree, or the veins of the leaf are two good reasons. Light peeping between 2 leaves might not be a good picture story for stock photo sales. The other issues are covered. Best wishes JG Photographer and Nutrition Author

@Blake5C7C You now have some technical reasons from others as to why your photographs are not accepted. Once you have sorted out your technical problems you can start thinking more about your subject matter. While buyers are looking for photographs of everything you can think of, most are looking for images they can use to build out a story or idea and they want photos that capture the hearts and minds of their readers and clients! I suggest spending more time planning your photography before picking up your camera. Think of concept words and have a purpose in mind. Find abstract ideas that your photography captures in a visual way. Here are some concept words to try: friend, joy, rough, soft, failure, family, quality, privacy, problem, change, truth, time, chaos. A simple close-up of a leaf does not seem very imaginative in comparison. The idea of a burst of sunlight coming through trees can be inspiring but these types of shots are common so yours must be exceptional. Keep shooting!
