No idea what this is or why anyone would buy it. That said, the Histogram panel in Photoshop shows major lighting deficits.

Before you submit, please review the submission guidelines carefully and compare your work with other Stock inventory. To be accepted, your work should be as good or better than what's already represented in your keyword category.

No, it didn't help. I asked for specific tips for each photo. Sorry, anyone can give such general advice.

  • There is a lot of banding and artifacts in the sky.
  • There is what appears to be a red brick structure in the distance behind the statues, this would be best removed in my opinion.

Hope that helps!
