Another point to consider is that smartphones do not do so well in stock photography; it is hard to get the high quality that is needed. When you zoom in to 100% or more, you begin to see the pixels and noise. So, your photos also lack the overall quality t

Photo 1: Not in focus. Cropped too close at the top and panorama view adds nothing to the composition.

Photo 2: Noisy. Overexposed highlights. Window sdreens are blurred.

Photo 3: Noisy. Photo is not focused so it is too soft. Horizon is not level. There is a white halo between land and sky. Birds and spots that need to be removed. Model releases for all or some of the persons will be required.

Photo 4: Noisy. Out of focus. Underexposed. This type of artwork is generally not accepted for stock p

Hi @sai shankar g nair ,

The first photo is not sharp. It has motion blur and noisy. It is slightly under exposed.

The second photo has a white balance issue and it too is noisy.

The third photo had damage pixels causing lost details. Also, it seem you applied some sharpening that didn't serve to your advantage. When you do landscapes, all vertical elements must be vertical. The windmill is not vertical. It leans to the right. I get the impression this was taken with a camera with a small sensor

I hope this helps.

Hi @sai shankar g nair ,

The first photo is not sharp. It has motion blur and noisy. It is slightly under exposed.

The second photo has a white balance issue and it too is noisy.

The third photo had damage pixels causing lost details. Also, it seem you applied some sharpening that didn't serve to your advantage. When you do landscapes, all vertical elements must be vertical. The windmill is not vertical. It leans to the right. I get the impression this was taken with a camera with a small sensor. If that is the case you might find this article on cameras' limitations beneficial. 

All details are lost in the shadows of the fourth photo. It is way too dark. Also it is noisy.

Best wishes
