Hello. The use of filters is not generally accepted. The first photo is underexposed, out of focus and the color balance is wrong. Too yellow.

Aim for the highest quality standards.  

Businesses, ad agencies, design studios, and marketers want to buy great-looking, distinctive stock photos and  illustrations. For your images to have commercial value, they shouldn’t show noise or dust and they should be well-composed, appropriately lit and exposed, and processed in an inconspicuous way.  

 

Don’t: Add sunrays or flares.

Don’t: Create mirrored images, kaleidoscopes, or patterns.

Don’t: Use effect filters.

Don’t: Add vignettes or frames.

 

Best of luck with your future submissions.

Stock is not for digital art. Pictures need to be usable to a wide range of applications, so applying digital filters does not help your acceptance rate, if the result is not a natural look. Stop this, or you will never get a picture accepted. Read the manual and the tutorials to get an idea about what is needed.
