Looking for reason why images are rejected

Hi,

I am fairly new to photography and to adobe stock. I know my pictures are not necessarily award quality, but I just recently submitted close to 350 images and only 7 have been accepted. What surprised me that those 7 accepted are actually less clear and sharp then most of the rejected images.

I have attached a few of the rejected images. One of them is a buck and when you zoom in you can see the individual hair on his chin and the image is rejected for noise.

I have the feeling that the selection process is not very objective and almost think that as a newbie you have pretty much no chance to get any of your images on stock. In my opinion this is borderline discriminatory. I have two friends who are professional photographers and they looked at my pictures and could also see no reason why they have been rejected by adobe. Of course when you try to speak to somebody at Adobe, they tell you there is not customer support for Adobe Stock. Hmmm...

So here are my images:

20171110_133922.JPG - Google Drive

20171110_140620.JPG - Google Drive

20171110_130526.JPG - Google Drive

Any help would be appreciated.—Thanks and God bless

How about just letting this long and interconnected chat go for now. Too many different questions, photos, and rejections to make sense to a newcomer. Let's just close this one out and start with a new question.Please, try not to post more than three photos at a time with questions. That will get a few blanket replies, our best work is on clear questions about a few rejected pieces. The replies will be better, Best,JH

Amani A - impressive you can sell images on SS after so short a period and so few uploads - Congrats!

By the way - it's much more difficult to get images accepted here on Adobe than on SS.

Hi Amani - I'm not representing Adobe. But I think that only the one with the venetian mask will be approved - if it not in a strange way is rejected by infringement reasons ...

Sure, i understand you don't represent Adobe. I appreciate your opinion. And your help. It's objective and helpful. The venetian mask is my best seller on SS, a lot of downloads worldwide : ))) But it's a mass produced product so no copyright or IP, I checked. But they rejected it for attifacts/noise? Not infringement

the others images you think too much distortion, pixelation, lack of focus? and if so in which parts?  As I said all feedback helpful I'm not going to be upset. And I appreciate your time

You are welcome …

The rose - I don’t like it is dying …

The mongoose - I don’t like the yellow stripe at left, much better image if you crop the animal close.

Paste - the colors are too dull

The bird is too dark - lighten it up both bird and sky - but then again, there are millions of bird/animal images ..!

The Marmoset is ok - but I think it’s too dark and I would like some space to the right instead of the left. But I think it might be accepted.

Just my opinions

Good luck, pal …

Ha ha ha, Sohn. "The venetian mask is my best seller on SS, a lot of downloads worldwide". You don't have to travel to Venice.

Hello All, It is time to start a new post. Let this one go. It has gotten too long and involved in too many different people and questions. If you let us start a new one, let's keep it to the same subject. Thanks, everyone. Regards, JH
