Hey guys, I sent the picture below to the Adobe Stock platform and it wasn't accepted. I'd like some feedback on why because I really like the photo and I didn't understand what points caused it to be rejected.

Thanks.

Hello,

Well, as mentioned, the most obvious problem is focus. Even though you wanted the tree out of focus, it doesn't work here, because the next thing apart from the focus is composition. The blurred tree tends to be distracting. It doesn't add a special touch (I don't think).

The image is also flat, as it lacks contrast.

Simple enough, the tree out of focus. Adobe Stock is looking tack sharp images. I assume you were attempting to focus on the moon and letting the tree stay out of focus, but it should have been the other way around at the very least.

Yes, Daniel, you're right. I wanted to focus on the moon and thought the detail of the tree would add a special touch. But I appreciate your feedback nonetheless because now I understand a bit more about the right images for Adobe.

You bet. I think moderators tend to reject images that try to get a little TOO creative when it comes to throwing things out of focus, at least based on some other rejected images contributors have submitted here for feedback.

Compare your best work with current Stock inventory.  Moon is well-represented with more than 3 million images which makes this a tough sell.

The moon isn't in focus neither, or you had camera shake.
