Rejected Stock Photo Submission

Hello,

I'm new to uploading photos for stock submissions and just saw one of my photos was rejected, so I'm looking for suggestions as to why and what I can do to improve the photo.  This photo was taken as a JPEG image instead of RAW; not sure why I did that when I took this since I always shoot RAW. It was just too cool an image to delete though.

Unfortunately, the focus isn't very good, so there's not much you can do.

Keep it for your own records.

Hi Mind_eye_image,

It is really a cool picture, but the edges are not sharp, its very noisy, and also has color fringing. Zoom you images to 100% to inspect before uploading.

Sorry, because of the poor focus, this image cannot be corrected for stock.

 

Best wishes

JG

Thank-you very much for your input JG; so very helpful! I have much to learn when editing my photos, so this is very helpful advice. It seems I have a lot of focus issues with other photos I have been inspecting, so I will have to pay better attention.

Dear Mind_Eyes_Image,

 

Welcome to the Adobe Community.

 

Please find attached some non-technical notes I have made.

 

Apologies in advance for handwriting on your work, I found it quicker and was with the sole purpose of providing some help beyond the "plain" rejection legend we all might have get once or more in our work. Photos are assumed to be yours. NO plagiarism intentions of any kind at all are pretended from my part. I hope this contribution helps to cover one part of that "big void" of multiple possible rejection reasons.

 

I am not an Adobe employee nor anybody to convince you about anything, I am just a volunteering dude trying to help people blowing off some steam when their work is rejected.

 

In other words, trying to provide an "out of the box" perspective. My contribution is with good intentions only and hopefully will produce at least one smile.

 

For more formal and professional comments listen to the guys that clearly know what they are talking about.

 

Keep shooting, learning, observing, and specially, having fun!

 

Cheers,

Vences

 

PS. It was indeed a nice shot worth to try 🙂
