Query: image quality

I need your guidance with the following photos, please. They are being rejected with this message:

Common problems that can affect the technical quality of the images include exposure issues, blur, excessive filtering or artifacts/noise.

Although I did edit the first photos a bit, after receiving this same response before, I decided to upload the original photos, but they also tell me the same thing. Could you give me a comparison or recomendation? Thank you.

Flowers for life (2).jpg - Zoom in beyond 100% and you'll see that it lacks sharp focus.

Flowers for life (3).jpg - Underexposed and depth of field is too shallow.

Flowers for life (9).jpg - Also not sharp, and not well composed

Flowers for life (10).jpg - same as above

 

Adobe Stock now has >29.5 million floral images, and the chance that one of yours would ever be sold is close to zero. While shooting and editing flower images can be fun and good practice for your skills, I wouldn't bother upl

Never mind the Quality Issues notice. There are millions of flower images in the database already and unless you are submitting images that are EXTREMELY unique and creative, few if any will make them past the moderators.

I understand, but couldn’t they tell me that directly or something like “be more innovative”? The previous photos that they rejected were of buildings and the city where I live, and on all the websites where I was, they accepted me (not all the photos obviously, but most of them).

What can you recommend me to be more innovative?

They moderate thousands of images per day and do not have the time to provide any helpful information besides a copperplate response. If they did, it would take much longer than the two month average waiting time for images to be reviewed and accepted/rejected. Getting more detailed feedback is what this forum is for. 😉

They didn't reject them because they were flowers; they rejected them because of the technical issues noted. If your flower images were perfect, they would probably get accepted; but you'd most likely never sell them.

Calle y edificios de buenos aires - AMBA - Dia de trabajo 10 .jpg - poorly composed with the backs of vehicles in the foreground; seems to be over-saturated, and verticals are leaning.

Calle y edificios de buenos aires - AMBA - Dia de trabajo 6 .jpg - artifacts in the sky and a big streak on the right side - looks like you were shooting through dirty glass.

To get some idea of what Adobe is looking for and what is selling, look at the Insights and Artist Hub links on your Dashboard page. Join the Adobe Stock Discord community, where you'll see Calls for Content and Curated Collections.

That's not a refusal reason. Flower pictures need to be perfect, checking is more stringent as with other assets. That's all. And to get accepted they need to have a wow factor, that's what @daniellei4510 says should be "innovative". Even with an exceptionally nice picture, your sales would tend to 0. Exception to this: I have a flower picture, which is my current top earner. 

 

Other sites have other quality requirements. Adobe is known to be very stringent on quality.
