I think focus is the issue here. The edges of the main bird do not look sharp. Looking at the water at the same depth I still think it looks not very sharp.

By the way, Adobe tells us that no AI is used to rate photo quality.

Agreed.

And this image wouldn't print well as it's more than 75% black.

What was the purpose of this post? Was this image rejected? Do you need feedback? As a professional photographer for 35 years, I have a pretty good idea of what it takes to make quality AI.

The chromatic abberation alone would be enough for a Quality Issues rejection.  I'm with @RALPH_L about the focus as well.

 

A piece of art can have many technical flaws.  I would likely admire this if I saw it hanging on a wall, but I certainly wouldn't purchase it for a commercial asset to use in a project.

Hello,

Seeing as how I'm new here, I have a Q about the sample image. Would the brightness of the water and it's lack of detail be a problem? I'm not sure how much I need to tone glistening down...like, if there is no Highlight notification from LRC, is it acceptable to ADOBE? Glare/reflection is a normal part of the real world, but I hate spending time editing just to have my image refused on something easy to fix.

Thanks

If there is no clipping either in the whites nor in the blacks, then you should be OK. A small clipping is acceptable. The lack of detail is a question of the image. It can't be answered without seeing the image. Lack of detail for the subject is not acceptable.

Well thank heaven. That will save some time to be less paranoid about reflections/glistening, etc. Sometimes I tone things down due to distracting from the subject, but sometimes out of caution. I will be more relaxed now.  Blacks? I sometimes clip blacks on purpose, depending on the image. I don't think it's been a problem...??? Thanks for your input.

What proof do you have that Adobe Stock uses anything other than human reviewers?   I want to know.

 

Also, what has SOUL got to do with this?  Either your Stock submissions are commercial-ready for use or they're not.  This isn't a religious experience nor is it an art gallery.  It's a business opportunity to sell Stock photos to millions of global customers and get paid above average royalty fees & bonuses for doing it.  Good lord, what more of a BREAK do you want?

Why do people always think that their pictures got refused by AI (not Ai, as that is a shorthand for Adobe Illustrator!)?

 

I'm now a professional photographer, designer and computer engineer for 38 years and I get refusals. That's part of the game (and I rejoice each time, a picture passes).

Me too, LOL. As a matter of fact, I'm shocked that I scored two downloads with less than 35 images in my portfolio!  I look at each rejection (and I've had plenty in the few months I've been learning LRC), as a chance to learn something new in the hopes I'll not repeat the mistake. It does sting sometimes, but I'm developing thicker skin already, ha!

I'm now a six year contributor and I get rarely rejections today. (I do not upload much, but what I upload gets accepted). When I get a rejection, I usually get the same asset rejected more than once, when I do not really understand the cause of the rejection. I never resubmit unmodified (I did for non-compliant assets twice months appart, just to check if a different moderator would reject the same, they did…). Very often I upload specific themes, like sunrises/sunsets in difficult light situations, just to check the unfounded assumptions that moderators reject them blindly. They don't. 

 

I admit, that most of my refusals are for reason. Very few could be argued about. Two lone refusals, I do not understand. But well, the sun revolves around the earth if you believe that. So it be. With or without Elefant.

When I scrutinize, I usally find an artifact I missed, correct, resubmit and have it accepted. But I have had a couple where I found none, resubmitted and, I assume, a different moderator accepted. It only makes sense that there is some subjectivity, since humans are not robots, yet, haha

Hi @iggy photog ,

@ricky336 is correct. 

 

The elefant is probably getting this picture refused twice: https://community.adobe.com/t5/stock-contributors-discussions/crisp-picture-no-filters-5000-glass-is...
