Thanks for the help. Thought about that but didn't know if they look so close at that. I mean, it could be on purpose. But at least that is easily correctible.

There is a difference of doing something on purpose and getting the picture accepted. 

 

The main issue is the DOF, and that is incorrigible. However, it may well be that after correction of the exposure and careful adjustment of the sharpness, that the asset gets accepted. 

 

The overall impression is rather nice.

The two main leaves seem to be near enough on the same plane that the one in the background should be as sharply focused as the one in the foreground. The edges of the frame also have some details that don't add much to the composition and could probably be removed.

Here I cleaned up the edges of the frame. Note that this is not necessarily the reason for rejection, but what I would have personally done myself to bring more focus to the center of the subject. But note in this screenshot that I asked Photoshop to select the subject, and it completely ignored the leaf in the background, being as out of focus it appears to be. (It's difficult to see, but there is a selection around the foregound leaf.

A quick look at the histogram reveals that the image is about 1/2 stop underexposed.

I suspect that use of the histogram is part of the moderator's process for reviewing images to determine if they are properly exposed.

Hi @Reto26171912qe8s ,

You have a good composition to capture both leaves, however you did not set your camera for enough depth of field to capture both leaves sharply.

jacquelingphoto2017_0-1714941487228.png

If the intent was for one leaf, your composition would be poor. 

Setting aside composition, there's still not enough dept of field to capture the closer leaf completely sharp.

Also the capture is underexposed.

Best wishes

Jacquelin

Hello,

To give you some more food for thought, fix the contrast. Fixing the contrast would also fix the exposure issue. Currently, the photo is flat!

However, in this case the composition could be better. I think you need to isolate the leaves more. The leaf that is slightly out of focus should be in focus. You should also try to make the two leaves 'pop' more. As it stands they tend to get lost with the other leaves in the background. The leaves do not stand out.

Finally, have you thought about its commercial application? What can they be used for?

Adobe Stock is aimed at commercial use, it's not an art gallery. I think people tend to forget about this!
