Hello, Focus seems to be a bit of a problem. I think you should increase your DOF. In this photo, I think it is too narrow. For example the front could have more detail: Also, you should include the whole guitar body. Composition could be improved. IP may also be another issue.

IP may also be another issue.

Thank you for your quick response. I can see the depth of field, but there are so many photos with blur that I thought the effect would be ok in general, I didnt notice the front though. IP? is that the surrounding of the guitar? Thank you

IP is Intellectual Property, so this means you need a property release form. The design of the guitar could be an issue with IP.

Unless you MADE this guitar (from wood and metal) then you cannot use it for stock without permission. It's that simple; the rights belong to the guitar maker.

Does that mean all guitar photos have permission?

Whenever an identifiable object is the main focus in a photograph, you probably need a release.

This applies to guitars, breakfast cereal boxes, cars, clothes, shoes, buildings, everything made by a human. The human owns the rights for about 100 years. It makes street photography very challenging and using guitars as props virtually impossible. If Adobe did allow a recognisable guitar without a release, then the picture could be licensed and used in an advert for (say) a rival product, or political party. The guitar maker could sue the advertiser. Who could sue Adobe, because Adobe claimed the file was free to use. And Adobe could sue YOU because you signed up saying you had complete rights to the picture.
