Hello everyone. Recently, I got more and more quality issues rejection. Care to comment on these 2 images? I did recently changed to Capture One and was wondering if the issue is with RAW processing of C1 or my image itself have flaw I am missing, maybe my mistake of having too much depth of field in stock which seems unpopular? Your comments is highly appreciated.

I think you meant to say "too little depth of field", which does appear to be the issue in these images as very little is in focus.

Both images are very blurry.  As a customer, I can't use these in commercial projects. 

 

Customers want to take parts of images to use in composites.  Blurry parts are useless to us. However, when everything is focused properly, we can use more of the image's parts.  Make sense?

 

Why Depth of Field is so important in Stock photography:

Hope that helps.

3665: Add more contrast and get the woman's hand more pep:

The RAW processing of Capture One is great, even that I prefer Lightroom in most cases.

3646: The DOF is extreme here. That's the biggest problem. I also think that the framing is not good. And I would lighten up the shadows a bit.

Hi @azmil77,

Too much of your photos are out of focus and also they are underexposed. The second photo has color fringing around the glove.

You must take your photos with the view to maximize the potential. Customers will want different elements from you file. Therefore one shot can serve multiple customers with different subject matters or one customer with different subject matters. That increases the potential of your sale. When you try to blur background you end up producing soft edge that is not conducive to cropping. You can read up more about what Adobe is looking for here and more on how to produce better files here and here.

Best wishes

Jacquelin
