Hello JacobCV, Did you also receive a reason for this rejection? I see that there is a little frog who refused to have his picture taken face forward. Not much market for photos of the back of a frog. However, perhaps the noise and blurriness of the majority of the space is another reason. As stated in the guidelines for stock contributors, your work must be excellent in every way - composition, focus, exposure color, and clarity - and then it must be totally exceptional. Here's a place to look for more information about how to avoid the rejections from Adobe. Best regards. JH

Your main subject is too small, and too much of your image is out of focus. This could be because you tried to zoom in on the little guy, that would not allow you to get close. The more you zoom the smaller the field of focus becomes especially if you shoot in macro.
I hope this helps
Is your rejection reason because of noise and artifacts?
Because you have problems with noise:
This can be seen in the background of the leaves. Notice the slight 'grainy' appearance of the leaves. This is noise.
I would love to see the rejection reason, but I'm with Jacqueline: The main subject is too small. And I'm with Ricky: There is some noise on the background. As I do not think that the post is in full size, there needs to be a lot of background noise (reducing the size reduces the noise and generally adds sharpness.
You want more reasons: look at your histogram: You need to work the blacks.
I also worked the noise...
Abambo, I think I covered the obvious answer in my reply. It was my intention to give the contributor information about what could be wrong and send them to sites to read for themselves. I do like your additional information beyond the general answer and see it can be helpful for many readers. Best regards, JH
Yes, you correctly identified problems on the picture, as did Rickey and Jacqueline too. And you added -- as always -- the highly useful links for Adobe stock quality requirements.
