Hey Martina,i think there are a lot of pictures with plants. A section of this link Reasons for content rejection means : "Common subjects like flowers, house pets, sunsets, and food are already heavily represented on Adobe Stock. New submissions for these categories can get approved, but only if they stand out and show the common subjects in unique ways. There must be a wow factor."

Not sure even though I can see this being used for health and beauty publications including spa adverts.

Shell I try again to post this picture or not?

I can't figure out Why it was refused...

Hi Photo-Heidinger,

Before I've posted the photo I've checked if there was some similar photo with similar keyword, I've found just a few of them and no one with such kind of reflection...

They're so cryptic when they're giving the rejection reason.

Thank you so much for you answer!

Martina

Someone has a bias against Water Lily images?   Only say this as I submitted two Water Lily shots myself, and both were rejected as having zero Aesthetic or Commercial value...odd, since I have actually sold prints of both of them.  If as Philippe suggests, Adobe just has a lot of Water Lily shots, maybe they should say that, rather than insulting us as artists/photographs...something like, "WOW, nice shot of a Water Lily, but we already have 1,000's of those, and yours would just be lost in the crowd.   That works better than just basically say, WOW YOUR WORK SUCKS.
