Zoom in on the dog's face and you see that it's not in sharp focus and there is a lack of detail in the fur. The background blur effect from the in-camera processing (iPhone perhaps?) has also blurred parts if the subject as well.

Unsharp area, no detail, where detail is important:

But the grass is great and sharp:

In addition, as the dog is the important subject here, you should have included more of the dog and less of the grass. If the dog was in-focus, a crop like this would have been appropriate:

The iPhone8 doesn't have the "Portrait" mode which looks kind of nice on a tiny screen but falls apart quickly when you display it on a larger screen. But this definitely has the look of an iPhone image. Most iPhone users don't seem to know that they can turn the phone sideways and take advantage of Landscape mode!

The fake portrait mode is not a great addition. But yes, they look great on the small screen, and that's what matters in most cases.

 

As for portrait orientation, this is a defect of all phones. The worst are those portrait videos.

You're welcome. For composition, you should think in thirds, especially for such a picture. It is important that the eye is guided to the correct place. You can ignore that rule because, like all rules, if you follow it by the letter, it produces boring assets. But if you train yourself to use it, you will create pleasant pictures, and when you break the rule, you will break it on purpose.

I love iPhone's 12-megapixel camera for quick snapshots to share with friends, family & social media.  For what it is, it's great.  But for Stock imagery, it's a limitation.  There's only so much you can do with phone cameras. 

 

Adobe Stock looks for highest picture quality,  regardless of equipment.  You're competing with 24  - 40 MP cameras. 

 

If you decide you're serious about photography, start saving for an entry-level DSLR (new or used) and a couple of good lenses.

quoteI love my DSLR Nikon.

That's a good start. I really like my phone to take quick pictures, but when it gets serious, there is nothing more interesting than my heavy DSLR with my heavy lenses.

Hi @LynnSnoww 

The subject is not completely in focus; too much of a shallow depth of field. It is also noisy.
