  3. Sheppard Photography Images Updated

    Please do take the time to review and critique my photographs and let me know how I may improve. I would appreciate it if you would also investigate my portfolio and give me some more general feedback on what type of photos I should include, how I could improve my key wording, etc. In essence how might I improve my sales, besides from increasing my portfolio size, of course.
    Thank you,  Sheppard Photography Portfolio

  4. why rejected? Updated

    These 2 images were rejected for focus, exposure and noise.
    Geyser image: I understand that there's noise. But why did reviewer say it's overexposed and OOF? It's bright and cloudy. If I lessened the exposure, then the ground would be underexposed! I can't have it both ways! Plus, as to the focus complaint — how is it OOF? It's not, it's just noisy. And who's gonna need to zoom 10000000% in on this? This picture looks perfectly good, even with noise, if you don't zoom in like a maniac.
    Jet fighters image: I agree, it's a bit OOF and noisy, but again, who cares? The image is aesthetically appealing. The reviewer even wanted me to mark it as editorial! The purpose of this image is not to report on an airshow and not show these jets in such details that you can make out the Pitot tubes. The point, as I would understand is one of the staples of photography, is aesthetic pleasure!
    Bottom line — these images are pleasant and, if you don't zoom in like a maniac, are of great quality. I've got a feeling the reviewers are going to get damn hurt when they fall of their very high horse. What do you guys think? Does Shutterstock honestly believe no one would want to buy these images? They should relax their standards by just a bit (not saying they should turn into a garbage dump) and maybe let the customer decide... who knows, maybe someone will buy it anyway and they'll make money off of it!

  10. Animals Updated

    Tiger head with lots of contrast but minimal saturation and a dark background. Just wanted to ask if this works as an arty imagine which could perhaps be used as a print.

  13. Rejected why? Updated

    Hi guys.... I wanted to submit this picture but it is rejected every time because of Intellectual property. There are no Logos on the cars or weels, no text whatsoever. Is the VW beetle protected somehow because of its shape !? But there are plenty of other pictures of the VW Beetle on Shutterstock!? I am confused.

    I shot these women hoping I hadn't lost my stock skills. Please, feel free to express whatever ideas come to mind.
    I gretefully appreciate it if you say whether the images have a chance of making it through inspectors for approval.

  21. First upload Updated

    Hi! I'm new at Shutterstock and I'm at 80 photos accepted but until now I haven't sold anything (I guess it's normal). Could you provide some feedback about the quality and the stock-potential of the pictures?
    Many thanks!

    I need your opinion on these images. Do you think they are commercial? Are they good for stock?

    Are these good enough for magazine print, or just sales to wildlife enthusiasts?

    Rejected for "intellectual property". There are lots of fighter jets that are not editorial on Shutterstock, what is different about these?
