The berries are lost in a riot of leaves, shadows, and hot spots. Composition is pretty much a jumble. You'd have done better to get  very close to a small cluster and made that your subject. With as clean a background as possible (i.e., uniform leaf color, no sky patches or other distractions).

Think a little more about your shots.  The idea is to not have to do much editing, so the quality is good.


What you've been posting here are above average snapshots, but you don't seem to have a good idea of what stock images are about.  It's not about "pretty", it's about content.  Think about what sort of article or advertisement could be illustrated with your pictures.  Think about how to best show off your subject.  Don't just accept the first scene offered to you.


For example, this picture.  If someone was writing an article about mulberries, what would they want their illustrations to look like?  Probably a long shot that shows the overall shape of a mulberry tree, and some close ups showing the fruit of the female tree, details of the leaves, and the flowers of a male tree. 


Someone looking for pictures of blackberries would be really annoyed to find this picture brought up by that keyword, and would never buy any of your images.


This takes some work.  If it didn't nobody would pay to have someone else do it.
