Why didn't my photos get accepted?

Hi,

I'm new to Adobe Stock and some of my photos didn't get accepted.

 

The reasoning for that was the image quality. However, the photos were taken in 4K.

Could anyone please tell what the problem is?
I didn't include the watermark on my photos when I submitted them.
 
Thank You

Focus, white balance, noise/artifacts - for example:

96 jerabiny na mechunoise.jpg

These are all connected with image quality hence the rejection reason!

The cup image is too yellow - white balance issues.

For the cherry/snow shots, the depth of field is too narrow and not a lot is in focus and the background shows noise/artifacts.

The water shot also shows artifacts:

Same as with previous image you posted, which you have posted again here. DOF is too,shallow, causing almost nothing to be in focus. In the waterfall image there is a blownout area.

Don't include the watermark here. It modifies the images and the images are not as submitted. As for your cherry images, you have got counsel, the problems are the same on all three and have been discussed here.

 

Your fur picture has simply nothing in focus, except for a very tiny part.

 

Architektura has colour noise and clipped shadows. You may need a property release for that.

 

Your green things picture is out of focus and if it would be in focus, it would have a too narrow DOF for such a picture. Don't push your camera to ISO 1600, it gets really noisy, and the follow-up noise reduction will destroy any detail required for stock.

 

Waterfalls: compression artefacts and out of focus.

 

Your yellow cup picture has a very narrow DOF and is missing contrast because the blacks (left) are missing.

The colour is quite monochrome yellow. I do not know if this passes as such when all other criteria would be OK.

There is a certain amount of colour noise and noise in the background.

Color balance is way off in the first one.  Adobe Stock frowns on special filter/camera effects. The colors must be true and balanced. No duo or monotone.

Depth of field is too shallow, nothing is in focus and it's over saturated. Did you include the watermark on the image you submitted to Adobe Stock?

First, your watermark is not acceptable.

Second, you have a lot of noise in the background.

Abambo_0-1677350163670.png

Third, the focus plane is not on the cherries, but a little before the cherries.

Abambo_1-1677350280581.png

Your colours are oversaturated.
