Hi @Марія5FA0, Welcome to the stock photography. Unfortunately, there are quality requirements that need to be met before the pictures are getting accepted. You need to check your pictures at 100% and 200% magnification to look for artefact and other defects that will disqualify the picture. If you post here it is useful to let us know the refusal reason. For IMG_1655 I would guess technical reasons: The picture contains artefacts that are typical for phone pictures or small sensor cameras. ...

Hi @Марія5FA0,

 

Welcome to the stock photography. Unfortunately, there are quality requirements that need to be met before the pictures are getting accepted. You need to check your pictures at 100% and 200% magnification to look for artefact and other defects that will disqualify the picture. If you post here it is useful to let us know the refusal reason.

 

For IMG_1655 I would guess technical reasons:

The picture contains artefacts that are typical for phone pictures or small sensor cameras. In addition with flowers it is critical to get the blossom in focus (orange arrow). Your picture had the leaves behind in focus (yellow).

As phone pictures are allowed to be submitted, they get the same vetting as other pictures taken with much better sensors.

Small sensors tend to introduce noise faster and are processing the images aggressively to overcome that deficit. That processing unfortunately introduces different defects.

Some defects may be introduced by uploading your files here, however, the pattern is very typical for your type of phone.

For picture 0442 you also have different defects:

  • Colour and luminance noise
  • The eyes are not sharp -- as with the blossom eyes need always being in focus.

  • The picture is missing contrast. A look into the picture's histogram shows the blacks completely (left) missing and the whites partially (right).

I didn't look into the other pictures, I suppose they are similar.

Abambo,
Thank you for your answer, it is super useful for me! I’m really new in
all this and definitely I’ve got to learn much more. Currently I’m using
Canon Rebel t7 (now I’m not sure about this camera)
I used to make amateur pictures for my instagram by using my IPhone XR.
P.S. Most of the time the rejection reasons were because of focus and noise.

Some tips:

  • Shoot RAW
  • Shoot in manual mode
  • Know the limits of your lens. The lens is often the cause for optical errors and missing focus. Especially, each lens has a sweet point where it is sharpest. That's not at the beginning or the end of the opening. And if you have constantly out of focus pictures you need to calibrate the focus. I do not know about the Rebel T7, but newer cameras let you correct back- and front-focus of a lens.
  • Use a flash (but best not the pup-up) even outside. I shoot a lot with flash, if the subject allows. Sharpness and the noise level get enhanced with flash. Just make sure that you do not blow out the main subjects.
  • When doing macro shoots you can use LED lights instead of flash.

When I take pictures a lot of them are not in-focus, even when the subject is not moving. And I'm shooting with a 5DmIV and great and sharp prime lenses. So, you need to shoot a lot.

 

You need to look at your pictures at 100% and/or 200% to see most of the artefacts. Some can be corrected, others not. I do not have one picture that has no correction of some kind.
