    Hi!

    Some time ago I started to interest in photography.

    Now that i've already shooted everything I want to go a step further into the internet stockist.

    Only a problem: they always reject my photos! "Soft or lacking definition"

    My camera is a Nikon D70. Is it a bad camera?

    What I do is:
    - Take photos in raw mode
    - Resize it to say 60cm (width)
    - Compress in jpeg lowest compression mode
    - Send it to quality control

    What am I doing wrong?

    I do not use a high iso and i think the exposure is great!

    Ok, I think the problem is this:

    But what am I doing wrong when I shoot the photo? My photos don't have a good definition! Why?

    Thanks for your help,
    Gonber

    What lens do you have? Lenses are not created equal, a better lens will give you higher quality images.

    Most digital images need sharpening, do you add sharpening?

    which Nikon lens?
    How do you sharpen your images?
    All images need to be sharpened. This is a function of digital images

    Please go to this website: http://www.alamy.com/stock-photography-guide.asp#guidelines

    Click "21. Soft or lacking definition"

    Mouseover the image and see the 100% view.

    This is what happens to me! Why?

    I normally take raw photos and when i zoom it to 100% with Nikon capture 4 editor I see very poor definition photos...Can you explain it to me? (We are talking about all images in all exposure conditions!)

    Thanks,
    Gonber

    post an image you sent for review.

    your asking people to help you without visual information. meaning your image.

    what do you mean about 100% zoom?

    All images will look crude at 100%
    I suggest you do the following so we can see a full-size image.
    Go to www.yousendit.com (this is a site that allows one to send a large file to another person FOR FREE).

    Send yourself one of your full-size, original files.
    The site will send you a link to the downloadable file.
    Then post that link here and we can download the original full-size file and look at it to see what, if anything, is wrong.
