Why my work will never sell
For a number of times, I tried selling some of my work as stock images, and each time my work gets rejected. Their reasons are these: poor lighting, unacceptable borders, no commercial value, not in focus or focus is not where they want it to be, autotracing (I have yet to figure out what that means), simple filters (I don't know what this means either) or artificial framing, poor or uneven lighting or shadows, white balance may be incorrect, noise, film grain, over-sharpening, or artifacts at full size. I should be thankful. Why? Because I know that my work is not like everybody else. This is why my work will never sell as stock images. They are quite simply not to be considered as stock.
