@CaglarUbay What was the reason you were given? I see technical problems with focus but in my opinion, this is not a suitable stock image representing a sandwich.

Compare your work with what successful Stock Contributors are doing in the same category. 

Ham sandwich close-up

 

Aside from the technical issues, your image lacks much WOW factor that would appeal to potential Stock customers.

Poor focus, messy background, strange shadows, and an unappealing composition due to the angle and too-tight crop. Food images should be mouthwatering, and the food should be perfectly arranged and well lit.

Hi @CaglarUbay ,

Your frame is out of focus. I don't see that bread as eaten, but that it is a whole wheat bread that is crummy because of the absence of gluten. This could tell a story about the difference between baking bread with whole wheat flour and white flour. Or making sandwich with whole wheat bread and white flour bread.

1.  blur and focus problems

2. Your sandwich is at an angle 

3. Overall it hard to say what you are trying to say in your photo. Your photo needs a story. 

4. Next time try to place the sandwich flat and photo it horizontally.

Hello,

As others have said, you basically have poor composition and it is not in good focus; it's not appealing. Imagine if a MacDonald's burger was presented like this? Would you eat it?

Hi @CaglarUbay ,

The first file is out of focus and highlights destroys some of it s details.

The second was cropped poorly, and over exposed. Highlights destroys some of its details. Also you need to improve on your composition.
