Hello!

I just recently had one of my photos declined for "Lack of aesthetic or commercial appeal", I had put it under the "graphic imagery" category on what I had thought was a fun abstract photo. Looking to get any feedback to double check if this is maybe not a desired photo after all.  Or if i need to try another angle or not.  Thank you for yout time!

The post processing is too aggressive here. You have a better chance uploading the clean, color version of your images. If designers want to make it funky in post they prefer to do it themselves to match their project exactly.Better luck next time,Mat

I can tell you I  have sent a few of this type of photo and each one was rejected for this "lack of aesthetic value." I finally accepted it's just not what the Adobe buyers want. The one you show here is interesting as mine was but we were both rejected for lack of appeal to customers. Keep going. Next time try putting the word abstract in the picture title line. Or just send the plain photo with no special filters or after effects. JH

Ah ok!  I actually didnt do any post-production on the photo, it's just lit with neon lights but yes that makes sense if it seems to them if I did.  Thanks!
