There are several reasons to refuse this picture:
And you should probably photoshop you out...but that was not the refusal reason.
Thanks, I will improve these aspects 😉. I believe that if the analysis team had a type of comment about rejection it would be a great help.
Adobe stock is not a photography class. Please keep in mind that the aim is to provide high-quality pictures to the buyers, not to make you a better photographer. The ideal contributor delivers only perfect images. As that is not the case and there will always be errors, also with photographers knowing the job, you need a check before accepting the picture. And because of the volume of pictures, it is not possible to give detailed info on the rejections. And it would be overkill because after a while you will know where to look.
It also seems you can see the reflection of the person snapping the photo in the spoon.
I don't think that is very good!
