Hello Indi_Gold,

The photograph you posted has a few problems. Artifacts problems are listed and explained in the

guidelines set by Adobe for new stock contributors. Study these and look at your photos at 200 magnification to discover hidden artifacts - scratches, sky noise, blurs, and so on.  Here is the link to

the guidelines for contributors. Best wishes, JH

Artifacts

Artifacts include noise, gains, color fringing, and other artificial coloration that is many times present in the body of the image. Grains are a dark spot that is usually more visible in the dark and shady areas of the image and is more visible at smooth areas magnified at 100 to 200%. Grains are also visible in smooth areas. As you view these areas you'll notice if there's a light spectrum of colors that should not be there. For example, shadow having colors of purple, blue, pink, etc. and not solid black. Color fringes are usually at the edges, most of the times purple. To correct these you need to, with editing software, apply a small amount of postprocessing. Be careful not to make it obvious.

Knowing your camera is also important. You need to read the manual about your camera so that you can use correctly the different features based on the environmental condition or subject. For example, low light might require a little exposure compensation, or to reduce grains/noise you might need to ensure your ISO is set low, and so on. Here are some links you can benefit from:

Thank you for your reply, and tips. I truly appreciate it! Apologies for my late reply. I'm actually starting out with my iphone 6s until I can save up for a professional camera.

Hello, 

It's a bit hard to point out the artifact problems you have with the above resolution. Are you able to post a higher resolution?

Anyway, when you look more closely at your image, look for small 'grain' like appearance rather like the grain on high ISO film.

In digital, this is called noise and generally, it is not liked in digital photos (unless you are going for an artistic look).On Adobe Stock the photo has to be clean. Noise could appear here in the dark shadow areas of your picture - in the green foliage for example.

I would say that you have noise problems - hence the artifact rejection reason.

ricky, I just want to check something about this new forum. When you opened it and wrote your reply, could you see my reply posted before yours? I covered most of the same information as your post.

Thanks for letting me know. JH
