Hi @Anna Goko , looking at your photos I see one consistent issue with all of them and that is noise / grain.  It's very important to review your images at 100% magnification before submitting them.  Here is a section of your oyster photo at 100%.

Unfortunately, the image isn't clear at all and filled with noise.  There may be other issues with some of your other photos such as white balance in your palm tree photo (the colours are too saturated) but all of your photos had this noise / grain.  The noise is usually caused by a high ISO setting or low light.  Sometimes it is correctable in post processing, so you can give it a try.

 

If you are new to stock photography, take a look at some of these resources which you might find helpful:

 

 

Best of luck with your future submissions.

hello @reedesign1912,
first of all thank you,
ok I understand better, grain is a thing I love in photos and I take all my photos with grain and noise 🙂 So if I understand correctly on adobe stock it is not necessary.
anyway thanks i'm going to smooth my shooting.

@Anna Goko , I know it has been a trend for a while now to use a grain filter or to replicate the look of older film types of photographs using high ISO.  Those photos have their place and can work well in social media, but that is not what Adobe Stock and its customers are wanting.

quote

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.


By https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/photography-illustrations.html

 

By having your photos technically great and less "artistically" filtered, you have a broader audience who will potentially buy your images.  Customers can and will apply their own edits, modifications, filters, etc. to suit their projects.  It's easy for them to add grain to your photo, but extremely difficult to remove it and most won't bother and just move on to the next photo.

 

I hope this helps.

shampoing:

  • Noise,
  • focus,
  • exposure and
  • chromatic aberration

FYI: the screenshot is at 100%. At this, the picture should be crisp sharp. At the right there is also a stain, that should be photoshopped.

You should also avoid such big blown out reflective patches, By masking the light coming in.

Abambo_2-1651409675570.png

Staged photographs like this are best taken when using a tripod, carefully staged light (mostly because of the reflections) and low ISO. Noise levels far less than this get a rejection.

 

Biarritz: has also a big noise problem. I would have expected the focus being on the lighthouse and not that uninteresting bush. Again, there is a stain.

The picture is missing detail in the shadows. You see that clearly in the Bush shadows and when you look at the histogram.

huitres: out of focus, noise, chromatic aberration.

moon palm: you have applied the same filter as in Biarritz to flatten the shadows. Again noise…

saintjeandeluz: noise...noise...noise. I won't look at this in detail, but you may also need a property release. And you will get an IP strike as there is a Renault logo in sight

Abambo_3-1651411576507.png

(down the picture there is quite hidden a car). The plate is also partially visible (that needs to be photoshopped).

Vin: you guessed it: Noise. The framing also is bad, with the glass at the border. Exposure is limit, the plate is overexposed. The glass has an engraving, that would be an IP refusal.

Hello @Abambo,
thank you for all these clarifications, I understand better,
for the noise I voluntarily shoot with but if I understand well it is not accepted on adobe stock photos, ok .
for the uninteresting bush, it was voluntary too, but I understand better the "standards", thank you very much
