I would like more feedback on why these were not accepted.  These have been resized from the original of course, but the photo is otherwise the same. This is all new to me so the more specific the better! Thank you.

Unless you submit full size images, the Community members cannot properly evaluate and comment on the possible reasons for rejection; however, I will comment based on what is obvious from these small files: 1) underexposed shadows and possible focus issue 2) underexposed  3) underexposed, leaning horizon 4) focus and a too-shallow depth of field 5) underexposed and white balance problem

Hi @Steven R Nelson, All photos are underexposed. In addition:  the first and third photos are out of focus. It is advised that you avoid shooting in the sun. In this case the sun's highlight causes some of the tree's details to be lost. The shadows of the third image is too dark, again causing lost of details. The second image displays chromatic and luminance noise in the clouds. Too much of the fourth image is out of focus. The fifth image has a white balance issue. The shutter speed was not f...

Hi @Steven R Nelson,

All photos are underexposed. In addition: 

the first and third photos are out of focus. It is advised that you avoid shooting in the sun. In this case the sun's highlight causes some of the tree's details to be lost. The shadows of the third image is too dark, again causing lost of details.

The second image displays chromatic and luminance noise in the clouds.

Too much of the fourth image is out of focus.

The fifth image has a white balance issue. The shutter speed was not fast enough to freeze the leaves and also the depth of field is too shallow.

Adobe are only seeking to buy world class commercial photography. You should know that the image checking people will view all your images at 100%-200%. Many faults are only seen this way, so your images could have any other number of other faults we cannot tell you about.

Hello,

Adobe Stock is about using photos commercially, how can these photos be used commercially? What do these photos actually show? Composition also plays an important part - these photos just seem to be snapshots.

Reading some of the Adobe help guides would be a very good start!

Even if the photos are accepted by Adobe, dosen't mean they will sell!

You could have over a 1000 photos, but it could be that less than 10% actually sell!

I agree with you @ricky336, a lack of straightforward composition was the thing that stood out to me the most.  I also wonder how these would be used commercially.
