I would like to upload this image but it has some noise and I am also unsure if it is stockworthy.
It was a 20 second exposure.
I look forward to your opinions

yeah...the mercury effect on the water looks like a painting. u r right though about the noise. i would also say the lack of interesting focal point (great sunset light aside) may limit the use of this image. sunset images on istock seem to sell better if they have an interesting foreground. but give it a go hey!

Thanks for your imput redmark. There is part of me that thinks it is just a nice photo not that stocky (except of having loads of copy space).
The other thing that worries me is Istock is a little short on sunset photos, there are only 56520 (2% of all accepted uploads)

I think you have answered your own question here. There is nothing special about this photo, as there are tons of sunset photos out there already, and as redmark said, there's no focal point either. Do it over with a subject to make it interesting. No power lines or oil fields though!
