I checked you first for your cutout work. When I put it against a light background, you see that you have done errors with the cutout.

Your brush was inconsistently hard. With stone, I would expect a hard cut against the background. All the stone should be in focus for best results.

Hello,

In a nutshell, your cutout work could have been a lot better. I think this is the main problem!

I guess you have taken the salt lamp and then cut it out and placed it on it a white background, hence, the cutout work could be cleaner.

I don't think there is a white balance issue. The bluish-grey edges I think are more to do with the nature of the salt. If there is a white balance issue, it would be seen in the whole salt lamp and not just a corner.

These all have the same errors.  These all appear to be taken with a shallow depth of field and are blurry around the edges.  The cutout work also appears to be feathered adding to the blurriness.  I would leave the selection unfeathered when cutting something like this out.  The lighting appears to be inconsistent with both white balance and brightness.  Maybe these were taken with another light in the room or next to a window?  I would more closely match the lighting and turn off any additional indoor lights or close the windows if those are what's causing the slight blue color cast in some of the photos.

 

Good luck!

 The objects  are blurry and the masking work is not well done. Zoom in and look at edges carefully. The 4th object has a blown highlight.

Hi @azeyope ,

The first file has a white balance issue. It is a little blue. It appear you went in a little close so that the top section is not in sharp focus. I don't know if you'll get away with that if you correct the white balance and re-upload.

The second was not clean cropped from its background. Also it is not in sharp focus.

jacquelingphoto2017_1-1666632947695.png

 

The third also have a soft margin around the edge.

jacquelingphoto2017_2-1666633274327.png

The fourth image has a sharp light source. When taking images like these you do not use flash and you need to filter any direct sharp light source, for example placing a thin white fabric between the light source and the subject. The subject is not completely in focus.The edge of the top is too soft. There is not a definition between the subject and the background.

Best wishes

What is this supposed to be?  It's unclear. 

I don't know if I'm looking at real objects or synthetically made ones. Are these supposed to be hard surfaced objects like stone or salt or soft malleable ones like soap or gelatin? 

 

I admit I'm not the brightest bulb in the lamp store but if I don't know what I'm looking at, how will Stock Reviewers & customers know either?

Did you make the salt lamps?  If not, you may have IP problems.

Such lamps are quite popular in Europe, you find them in every corner, and they are industrially made, so I would not expect IP problems. The commercial value of such pictures is different, as if you are a vendor, you get an easy picture and cut-outs are done in no time.

I would say zero to very low sales. See here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/stock-contributors-discussions/rejected-quality-issues/m-p/13294636#M...

Perhaps if you reshoot the lamp, taking into account all of the advice above, it could be saleable; however before you spend much effort doing, so take a look at some of the other 4,000 images that are already in the Adobe Stock database.
