Quality Problem

Hi. I have uploaded several photos of flowers which I think are quite good, colorful and beautiful, but almost all of them were rejected due to quality problems. Can anyone explain where the problem ?, because these photos were uploaded without editing or manipulation, they are all pure from nature and the camera. Below I have included several examples that I have uploaded and were rejected by Adobe.

DSC00295.JPG - a bit underexposed and not in sharp focus; DOF is too shallow

DSC00242.JPG - also underexposed and chromatic aberration is evident

DSC00238.JPG - blurry

DSC00112.JPG - not well composed, background too busy

DSC00246.JPG - lacking contrast, not well composed 

 

Unedited images, straight out of camera are rarely going to be acceptable. Editing is a necessary skill if you want to be successful at stock photography. Additionally, floral images are already over-represented in Adobe Stock. Search in "red rose" and you'll get 4.4 million matches. The chances that anyone will ever see or buy yours are very remote...

Thank you for the input and the correction.actually I am a newbie in microstock things , so I really need a lot input and more learning. At Shutterstock all the photos were accepted, so I thought there was no need to edit them again, but apparently I was wrong, I will pay more attention to it in the future.

These are snapshots at best, and all are in need of editing, particularly sharpening. Compositionally speaking, I would encourage you to look at some of the flower images on Adobe Stock. There are millions of them, so that is your competition in terms of quantity alone, much less quality. ALL photos generally require editing and sometimes manipulation when submitting to stock.

We hear that quite a lot: "They were accepted on Shutterstock." But Adobe's standards appear to be quite higher. Here are some general editing tips from Adobe: https://helpx.adobe.com/lv/stock/contributor/help/editing-dos-and-dont.html#:~:text=Image%20adjustme...

Hello,

For snapshots these photos are fine, but for commercial use, they are not.

Your composition is very average, typical for a snapshot.

So, you have to think about your composition. It is very important as it can make or break a photo.

2nd is your focus. I suspect you were a bit too close to your subject, so the camera couldn't focus properly.

To have photos, straight from the camera' is not always true; it depends on several conditions. 

If you want to get more involved in taking photos for stock, then you need to learn how to edit. Adobe's Lightroom or Lightroom Classic would be a good way to start.

Another thing is, don't bother to upload stock flower photos. There are gazillions of them!
