Okay I`m at a lost here, I don`t really understand what wrong with these pictures. Is there a problem with my focus, details, or maybe some noise/grains?  How do I know if  noise/grain is taken care of?

 

Can someone help me?

Thanks a lot! 🙂

There is no clear, sharp focus in any of these pictures. View it at 100% to 200)% in Photoshop, it should be obvious. If you still can't see it, I suggest photography classes. Sorry, getting sharp focus is basic lesson #1.

Consider that there are already millions of floral images in Adobe Stock; yours need to be unique and technically perfect to be accepted into the database. Flowers are a great way to practice your photography skills, but I wouldn't advise spending a lot of time on them as a way to build a successful stock portfolio.

Hi @henokhvids 

In addition to all photos being out of focus and the white balance of the second image being off, the third and fourth images are slightly underexposed and the fourth image shows signs of shake.

Best wishes
