    They usually give a reason for not accepting an image, at least istock do. It's a pretty unremarkable image though :(

    Background and sickly droopy leaves. The flower is fully open many rose shots I don't think are.

    Too much background clutter and the foliage is turning brown/wilting/eaten by parasites, why would anyone buy it.

    When trying to sell plant/food shots everything needs to be as fresh looking as possible and without the clutter. Anyway you already gave this picture to everyone with internet access as its not resized for web use, if we were on dial up it would have taken an age to load. H

    I agree, the background is the main problem. Just delete it and try again later.

    Do you think it is a good photo ?, it could have something to do with there being a motorbike in the background

    Many times photos get rejected because the stock house already has as many of that type as they need.

    This one you have posted has some serious noise issues, and the big holes that bugs have eaten in the leaves don't help.

    stock sites are very very strict.
    and this shot is mediocre.

    i have to agree, the tire and background is completely taking away form your picture, If it was me, id go to a local garden and retake it completely. your back will blend into the picture and your flower will be more vibrant. i hope you get the help your looking for :)
