Hello everyone! Here is a recent photo I did of a fountain close up. I would love some feedback on how to make this better.

My personal thought was that it may be cropped too tighly but I can also see some usage for this version.

Thanks in advance for eveyone's time!

It's a nice picture but there is a difference between fine art and STOCK. If you want lots of sales, you need to do STOCK. But don't ever stop taking nice pictures.

Thank you for taking the time to look :) Yes, there is alot of differences between fine art and stock. I researched on several sites and found many photos that have close up of fountains such as this composition so I was a bit surprised that it was refused. Before I submit any photo I make sure to research beforehand. What, in your opinion, should have been done differently Wisconsinart?

Just because you can find similar images on stock sites doesn't mean it's a GOOD stock image.

It's not always about "what I could have done differently." It's a really nice picture. But it's a concept that doesn't sell well around here. And, honestly, it's a subject that doesn't sell well in an art gallery for that matter.

Had I taken that picture I probably would have uploaded it also but I would be surprised if it got any sales and I wouldn't have been surprised if it was rejected. It's just not a strong image in the world of STOCK.

Make a nice print and give it to your Mom on Mother's Day.

Hi :)
Thanks for taking the time to reply. I get what you are saying....no MASS COMMERCIAL appeal. Mayby 1-5 situations over time might require it. Thank you for your honesty and this was a great help!
