Hi ! Yesterday I uploaded my first photo to try and it was rejected due to technical problems, I am not sure what I did wrong. Because I have no experience with this, does anyone know what it could be?
Welcome to Adobe Stock.
There are a number of issues with this image. The flower is not completly in focus. The clipped area is out of focus.
The blotchy watermark appearance of the blurred background as clipped below might be taken in consideration for the rejection reason.
In addition to those issues there is also the issue of exposure. I believe your image is a bit underexposed.
To find issue with your images, magnify them at 100 to 200% and inspect carefully.
Here are some reasons for rejections that you may review so you will know what to look for:
ohhh I didnt know it, thank you so much !
Yes, it is rather underexposed and there is a banding problem!
I've lightened the image so you can see more clearly what is happening in the background:
You don't have a smooth transition of colours. I think this has something to do with either the camera and/or your post-processing - post-processing in 8 bit mode for example.
ok I will try to do something about banding problem, thank you so much too.
I do not think that the whole blossom needs to be in focus, but the main part really needs to be.
And yes, the picture is quite underexposed.
For flower pictures (as well as dog/cat and sunrise/sunset pictures), please note that the number of pictures submitted is very high, so yours should be perfect in every aspect and should have a „wow“ factor.
This picture properly focussed and exposed would have that wow factor, so your eye is great, but yu need to work the craft...
