Hey folks. So, I submitted these images, and it got rejected for 'quality issues'. Any tips on why that might be? I'm still learning the ropes here and would appreciate any friendly advice or feedback. Thanks a bunch!

First: Composition, noise

Abambo_1-1711813677079.png

Exposure as shown by the histogram:

Abambo_2-1711813741050.png

(Missing whites, right of the histogram)

Second: composition, out of focus or camera move during the take.

Noise:

Abambo_1-1711813940586.png

Exposure as shown on the histogram:

Abambo_2-1711813998967.png

(missing blacks, left of the histogram, missing whites, right of the histogram, that results in poor contrast)

Here is a better edit, with increased contrasts and correct exposure:

Abambo_4-1711814324625.png

That can't correct the unsharp image, however, and noise reduction will need a lot of attention.

20230117-DSC_0487.jpg - this snapshot is underexposed, blurry, hazy and unedited. Read Adobe's guidelines on quality expectations more carefully.

These snapshots might be OK for social media but they're unsuitable for commercial use.

 

Stock customers come here expecting to find professional quality photos to use in their own projects -- i.e. magazines, posters, billboard ads, TV commercials, marketing materials & merchandise.   

 

Read your Stock Contributor User Guide.  Most of what you need to know can be found there.  If you're new to photography, consider enrolling in some courses and join a photography club.

Hello,

 

Quality, well... it's not that good I'm afraid. One thing you have to learn is composition. It's rather poor in these shots, to be honest.

 

So some tips:

Read these guides from Adobe about composition/exposure etc.

User guide:
https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/user-guide.html
Exposure:
https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography/discover/exposure-in-photography.html
Composition:

Composition is important! Very important!!

The second image. Taken from inside a car I assume? When I used to teach photography, the first thing I told my students was that any photographs submitted that were taken from their cars on the way to class will receive an automatic F, as it meant they put very little thought into the subject, the composition, etc. 😉

I have some care shots. I did put the same thought in my car pictures than in all other pictures. 😂

Sure. I don't have a self driving car. It was mostly rush hour stop and go…during the stop phase. I use manual setting in all circumstances.

All I know is, when I taught my first class their first semester, most of the photos my students turned in were of blurry cornfields. Of course, this was back in the pre-digital days, when we didn't have self-driving cars and we had to spend hours in a dark room shaking dangerous chemicals in stainless steel canisters while reflecting on our lives and asking ourselves deep existensial questions like, "Who decides the maximum number of items one can purchase in order to use the express lane at the grocery store?"

The CRM decides on that, and the number is 10. Because less looks like not a lot, and more, well requires correct counting. And counting more than to ten is difficult mathematics.

Ours is 12. Along with a sign that says, "No checks." While I wait behind someone still writing checks in the 21st century.

Checks have been abondoned years ago. Just googled it. Must have been on January 1st, 2002, or earlier. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurocheque. 12 is hell too much... 🤪We do money transfers, debit cards or credit cards.I was twice now recently in a restaurant where they could not accept credit or debit cards because of an outage of their payment system. I did a money transfer. But in France there are indeed still people writing checks.

I haven't carried a checkbook with me for most of this century 😂.  However, every now and then, not often, I get behind a little old lady at the grocery store who waits until the clerk scans all the items and starts bagging them - then she digs around the bottom of her handbag looking for the checkbook, digs for a while longer to find a pen and laboriously writes out the check while all the customers lined up behind her glare and fidget... Some people are resistant to change.

I went to the grocery store once intending to buy three specific items but ultimately filled my cart. I had a brain freeze and ended up going through the express lane because, deep down in the dark, subterranean hallways of my brain, I still only had the three items I came in for. The clerk scolded me and I left in shame.
