Just curious what the issues were so I could correct them or try again if anyone can help thanks.
Evidently not, the exceed the 10MB file size limit.
I am not sure what you mean by that but the maximum file size is 45 MB. I think you are saying that your image resolution is 10 MP, which exceeds the minimum image resolution requirements of 4 MP. So you are good there. Technically-speaking, I don’t think these images fit the quality standards as they are not appropriately lit or exposed. You need proper highlights, catch, or fill light on your subjects. The plants and flowers are not seen in their glory. Think of them as people… don’t you want them to look as wonderful as possible in your photography? Or, if you are deliberately aiming to depict them as depressed, tattered, or forlorn, at least show some other glimmer of hope in the frame as an inspiration. Most people who license Adobe stock images are not looking for editorial (news) images but for visual concepts or patterns. I hope that is helpful! Keep shooting.
Thank you for your time it is much appreciated! I understand the part about allowing more light onto the subject although I do prefer the more gloomy look so I will consider that next time I take photos! As for quality control I am still a little unsure about how I may do it differently but I will try your first suggestion and see if there is a change! 😄
If you have any more specific details on quality of the photographs I value your opinion
You are welcome and I’m glad I could be of help. There are so many elements that go into image quality that the only way to master them all is to learn through classes, workshops, tutorials, and practice. Once you have a command of the technical basics (exposure, lighting, focus, lenses, and so on) then for stock photography I suggest concentrating on subject matter and composition. Remember, art appreciation is subjective and what one person likes another can’t stand. But in terms of selling stock images, you have to understand that millions and millions of fantastic images are available already! How do yours measure up?
2 Mb is great for a quality JPEG picture to upload here.

Here are some screen captures of my images.
the colours are by design 🙂
Hello @Aracoth , most of your photos have exposure issues which remove details. Some of the photos have portions of objects which need to be removed.
Here I corrected the angle. Lightened the photo. Reduced the noise. Added some sharpness. Removed some spots.
I actually really like that, job well done Ralph. I shall use this as a reference point if I may for future processing thank you.

If you provide natural colours, you will have a higher acceptance rate. Colours can always be alienated, but getting the natural colours back is practically impossible.
Your first picture is underexposed.
For your second, you should recover more of the whites, counter light pictures are always difficult to take. I use bracketing in such situations.
Your third is out of focus, contains probably noise and is underexposed.
Your last picture shows chromatic aberration and is out of focus.
This I can work with thanks, I shall take a look at all the things you said and perhaps train my eyes to see them too since I am rather new and learning. Thanks for your feedback.
