If Adobe Stock accepts my photos, I know they are good.

I would love some suggestions on how to make these two photos better. They are just boring, and have technical issues as well. I'm going to shoot this location again in the near future. It is old equipment from a former lumbermill. Maybe I can get some people in there. Thanks!

Hi @dawna49917269,

For stock, these are fine. Nice depth of field. The angle of the first shot might have caused a little softness at the extreme right, but I do not think you'd get a rejection for that. I do not find them boring. They should be accepted when you correct the white balance and resubmit. The frames have a blue cast.

Put yourself in the shoes of an Adobe Stock customer.  Would you buy this image?  What would you use it for commercially? 

 

Stock photography is 40% choosing the right subject.  You can have a drop-dead gorgeous, unique photograph that doesn't sell because the subject doesn't resonate with customers.  IMO, the hardest part about good Stock Photography is understanding trends and guessing what Stock customers will want before they want it.  See links below.

Adobe is the best to decide what will not sell. If the review moderator believes a subject has no potential for sale, it will be rejected for lack of commercial appeal. Until then there is the potential for sale. You never know what will get sold.

As @Nancy OShea said - 'commercial' is the key word. How commercially viable are they? The 6 million dollar question.

Adobe Stock is having images that are commercially viable! And for that to happen you need to sell lots. And that means having images customers want to buy. 

However, if selling say 3 images a month is no big deal...
