I'm trying to get a better understanding of what is and is not acceptable for commercial use, particularly when it comes to intellectual property. These 3 images were rejected yesterday and I'm not sure why. I can't find any logos or company names in any of them. The bridge is well over 120 years old and is not in the "known image restriction file" nor can I find anything online that would indicate a property release would be necessary. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Take a look at Adobe tutorials about too much high-key white places. Contrast is good but not in extreme. See other Adobe stock photos of similar subjects. Mute the ultra white areas and try again. JH
Thanks for the exposure tips, but that doesn't help me understand why these images were rejected for intellectual property refusal.
I can't see on the small versions you've uploaded here, but there may be recognizable cars/busses in your shots. Those often aren't allowed.
If you zoom in on one of the bridge images you can see cars from the side but no car logos. Would just the side of the car be enough for an intellectual property refusal?
Yes. They seem very touchy about cars.
