Hi,

I am new here and I would like to understand the reason why my picture was rejected. It is untreated, high resolution. I thought I would give it a chance because it looks somehow like oil painting. What could I do better?

I think it personally looks great, however I have had some of mine rejected as well.  At first I was adding effects and changing the lighting myself, then realized that if I were to use an Adobe Stock photo, I would want to manipulate it myself. That was why some of mine where coming back as rejected.

So I submitted more without any effects and they were accepted.  You state it is "untreated", so you already have that part down. As to why yours was rejected, I am not sure, I personally think it looks great!  I have had more rejected than accepted and I just started doing this as well, just to see.  Here is one of mine that was accepted.  If you look, I do not think that mine is much different than yours as far as a "natural" looking photo as a "natural" looking photo.

Here is a similar one that was rejected:

So I have the same question as to why some of them are getting rejected with them being "raw" photographs, but still have clarity and great colors for someone to work with.  Any suggestions?

Your photographs are wonderful. Something one might see in a good gallery. But that is part of the problem. The work I sent in was a finished work of art. It was good as it was. It stood alone as a FINISHED piece of art. I think it is a compliment but not for stock. JH

The thing with being a designer, we want to make the images as cool as we can and have people like them "as is", but I have used stock photos and I manipulate almost all of them....  My guess is this - They may actually pull the photos into a design program and see what they can all change as far as colors, black & white, etc. and if it still looks good after adding effects they accept it? All I know is the 2 images above were taken with the same camera, same settings, same flight even and one was accepted and one rejected,  So, I am just doing more and once enough get accepted, I'll hopefully have it figured out.

Very sound thinking and deductions. I am doing the same and I too am an all

media artist/illustrator-author.
