I am new to istock and would appreciate the critique on those photos.
Two photos were rejected and I can resubmit.
Thanks every one for their input.
Sliced Kiwi File # 23689084
Sliced Kiwi with one half inverted File # 23689085
We found the overall composition of this file's lighting could be improved. Some of the technical aspects that can all limit the usefulness of a file are:
-Direct on-camera flash and/or flash fall-off (bright subject, dark background)
-Harsh lighting with blown-out highlights that lack details and/or distracting shadows
- Distracting lens flares
-Incorrect white balance

Both have the same issue. On the image histogram, your right hand edge falls 5% short of full white, which means your background white is very grey. You can see this clearly by comparing it against the white of your computer screen.
I suggest you re-process from the beginning, and be much harder on that right-hand edge.

As Roger says the whites are very grey. The subjects are underexposed. Kiwi fruit is the worst. Cucumber is better, hence the resub. I'm surprised that these haven't got a rejection for isolation as well. White backgrounds either need to be correctly exposed, and showing some texture or gradient with no significant blown out areas, or "isolated on white" where the background is all pure white. in both cases the subject(s) need to be correctly exposed.

Thank you for the input and the remarks. I will reprocess the images.

The hard shadows on the background material are awkward as well.
