What am I missing?

I have been a stock photographer for 15 years. I never had batches off 100 unaccepted as long as I have been in the business. I am doing AI work now and it is taking just as long to do that as actual pictures.

These two pictures are only two of the 500 that I submitted, and all were rejected. Can someone tell me what is wrong with these two pictures that are 2 of many that were rejected? I try to shoot as realistic as I can from the bestsellers in my other portfolio.

The woman in the first image is quite blurry, and her eye a bit malformed. The dog in the second image is more blurry than the woman, and she also has a malformed eye.

Could you please post the images at the same size as they were submitted? These are too small to make any kind of constructive comments. And I assume these were rejected for quality issues?

In addition to what Jill said, the image generator even copied the chromatic aberration.

As @Jill_C mentioned, the eyes especially need work. The size and shape of the irises and the pupils much be identical. Also, more often than not, the catchlights also need to match. Fix one eye, then copy and paste it to the other. If it's on the shadow side, darken it slightly. If it's on the highlight side, lighten it slightly.

These are very soft and I can't tell much from low resolution previews.

 

Closely examine your full sized images.  Pay particular attention to eyes, mouth and other facial details.  Machine generated images are notoriously bad at rendering fine details.

 

Examine every quadrant of each image at 100-300% magnification.  Fix errors if you can or discard them.  Accept that some AI images are not fixable. It comes with the turf.

 

Before submitting, compare your very best images with current Stock inventory to ensure that yours are as good or better than what Stock has.  And the subject is not over-represented already. The Dog + Woman keyword phrase is very stiff with 100+ pages of submissions.

Hope that helps.
