I captured an (according to me) amazing image, but it was rejected because "it features excessive post-processing and/or noise", of which I haven't altered it. It was captured on my phone, using HDR mode. How can i get it to be accepted, or maybe there is something I am missing, since I'm a fairly new contributor to Adobe Stock??

HDR is post-processing. Your phone is doing the post-processing and it's not you, but it's still post-processing. Also, there may be noise. Without seeing an example, we can't say.

Okay. I think I understand now. So, that basically means I cannot upload photos taken in HDR mode...????

One of the rejected photos is shown below:

It would seem so. It probably depends on how unnatural it looks though. I mean, that sunset image just looks wrong. The sky is way too dark, saturated, and contrasted compared to the ground. It almost looks like two different images pasted together (which it kind of/almost is).

I don't know. It depends on what the image looks like after you remove the noise. I haven't seen your image, so I've really no idea.

That is definitely too noisy.

But in the de-noised version the background trees and hills are so smeared they look like they've been painted. That would probably get rejected too.

But I wouldn't really worry about that either. The quality of the image doesn't look very good regardless of the noise. I mean, look at the grass near the camera and the village in the distance. I mean, really look. I don't know if it's low quality optics in the lens, some motion blur from pushing the shutter, or a combination of the two, but nothing in that image is very crisp.

It's not a very compelling composition either.

The road leads your eye immediately outside of the photograph. That's bad because you automatically look away from the photograph.

There is no point of focus for the eye to land on in the photo either. You just have a lot of blank road, blank field, blank sky, and blank water with no lines leading to the village (which is also fairly dull from this angle).

Changing the framing, the height of the camera, and the composition in a few different ways would have made this much more compelling.

What I'm saying is, even if it were crisp and noise-free, it's not a very useful photograph for a stock library.

I wouldn't recommend putting any more effort into it.
