The white sky and reflection kills this.

It should be like that. The greens and bridge between sky & water.

Im not buying that explanation. artistic is one thing and  being artistic is very Important as Im a fine artist also and teach it. This is stock. That means if you want Multiple sales it should be as clean and clear as possible without this much Over processing. Once your in. do whatever you want and you'll be able to tell if it works or not. This image has many Issues.

 

Always ask yourself "What can someone use this for" Thats important in this business. It's way over the top.Also, the little P&S camera is not doing you any Favors.

Somebody can use the photo for put it in frame and hang on wall, maybe some a magazine will buy it.
 
The photo already was rejected a moderator with reason: "Composition--Image is poorly composed and/or poorly cropped." I'm not agree with this, but I'll to redo and to try again. :-(

Your 100% wrong. NO, It should not be like this. This looks Like nothing more than Not knowing what your doing and pretending it was on Purpose. It's OOF, horribly exposed,And Blown out. Thats called No Value as stock. You wanna call it art. that is totally up to you. Honest Opinion.

 

"maybe some a magazine will buy it."  I think your a little to hung up on your stuff. You have to be more critical. If you can't, You Picked the wrong Hobby.Pls invest in a real camera. and learn every Button On it. doesn't need to be expensive. Just not a little party camera. you have no detail. Megapixels mean Nothing. The size of the chip is everything.

If I may add to Laurin's comment to try to show the difference....

 

Basically, anything can be used as art...as  a photo in a frame, because art is completely subjective. Stock is not art (although it can be and there certainly is an art to doing it well) - stock is in many ways nothing more than advertising. That's where most of our images get used, so try to think of what someone can use this for from a marketing perspective.

 

We are providing images that help designers sell a product - a service - a concept or idea.  Even if it is used as a book cover or in a calendar, the image is still helping to sell the product.

 

Your market here is not the individual buyer who is looking for something pretty to hang on their wall. Your market here is designers, bloggers, ad people, web designers and (yes magazines) - so THOSE are the buyers that you should consider when thinking "what can someone use this for?"

 

I hope that helps.

Dude, I already bought Canon EOS 1100D Kit for beginning level it is enough. All this photo very old and I try to give them a new live.

Trying to give old pictures new life is exactly how I got started and it took me forever.   I finally realized it is easier to study what is needed to get approved and what sells and just start over.   I started submitting here only after I felt I had made significant gains in my skill level, maybe once or twice a year.

 

That doesn't mean your images aren't wonderful as memories, or prints, or whatever else you might use them for. Stock is a specialized market and the folks above have given you good feedback that will help you if you choose to listen.

 

Your camera makes a difference in that you have to have a camera that will capture clean, crisp images.  There's more to it than that, though.  You also have to learn how to use the equipment you have to produce great results.  For stock this means tack-sharp focus, perfect exposure, and composition that highlights the subject of your photo.   Once you have the basic "good enough" equipment, it becomes about your understanding of what sells as stock and how you can produce those images using the equipment you have.  I've never used the 1100D kit.  I have no idea if the camera is "good enough."  In general, though, beware of kit lenses as they do not tend to easily produce the image quality needed for stock.
