Hi, I'm new at Shutterstock and I am very interested in your opinion and tips on the photos I've uploaded. I have included a selection but feel free to look at my page.
Thanks in advance, Liesbeth
PS I've uploaded these images from my laptop, so you can't see the description and keywords I added in SS. Is there another way I should have added the pictures so that you can see this information?
All these images got rejected, even upon resubmission, which I did for some. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who finds them aesthetically pleasing, so what's the problem? One of them is underexposed on purpose for artistic purposes, others have unintentional focus problems. As to the focus part — it's only noticeable upon 100000x zoom. Who needs that? Maybe I'm not getting something about SS? Why don't they just approve an image if it's good enough, and let the client decide whether or not the image fits him. And mine will most likely fit him if he's not thinking of making a huge poster out of it, but just use it on his website.
But I'm particularly dumbfounded as to the doomsday-like photo. I underexposed INTENTIONALLY to get the doomsday feel. How do the reviewers not get this? I even wrote that in the description upon resubmission, and STILL got the "exposure" rejection.
Please help me understand "the SS way" and how a right-minded person could possibly reject these photos.
Got myself a nice B&W ND filter. Never used it till today, no really good waterfalls to practice with, so I went into town and got this little fountain. I was at F8, 40mm, ISO 100 and at 2 seconds on a tripod and cable release. It is blurry! What did I do wrong? This isn't a pic for stock, but hoping to figure out how to get those beautiful photos of water streams some day like I see most of you do Also, I am using a Canon 6D with a 24-105L
Any help is appreciated, thanks!
These have been accepted, so far so good. But, I am new to stock photography. Please, critique these (or anything else in my port) so I can learn more, and become better competition for the rest of you .
Thanks for the recent feedback on my Switzerland photos. Much appreciated
Here are a few photos from a trip to Antarctica. Feedback on whether these are saleable, and any suggestions for improving the quality of future wildlife shots, or for post-production processing would be very much appreciated!
I'm new here. I love photography and am specially interested in travel photography (and yes I know that travel photography have very little sale value 😞 ) I am still learning and would really appreciate your opinion and tips..
Please, give me some feedback on these two pictures.. The right side of the image has slightly different tone, tried to fix it and it looks better but still catches my eye.. Do you think pictures are overdone or is it just me... ? Thank you!
Couple of pics from Milarrochy Bay at sunset this evening. Tried using a new method for long exposure without an nd filter. Think the pics look good but got my calculations wrong and should have taken more exposures for the photoshop stack as I wanted the water to be like glass. Look forward to trying again in the near future. What do you think.
