Overuse--Image has excessive noise reduction and/or excessive sharpening effects applied.
Poor Lighting--Image has exposure issues and/or incorrect white balance.

Shot with Canon EOS 600D lens 55-250mm in RAW. Minimal processing.     I  have sold many images of melaleuca trees.

Sky is full of noise and the image looks over-sharpened, almost crispy.  Hard to tell much from the small image but the noise easy to see.

assuming there is actually something wrong with the images and you haven't been hit by Atilla the reviewer, you might want to investigate camera settings and the automatic settings for bringing them into PS - often there is some default sharpening and possibly color saturation settings that you might want to dial back.

yep Attilla has been saying the same things for virtually everything submitted lately.I will just have to keep on tying and hope I get another reviewer as I am getting pretty fed up last few weeks .

All 3 images are simply of far too low quality.
The duck has so much noise that a lot of details are lost.
The landscape is meaningless. There is no composition.
The tree... composition again. The whole tree, and nothing but the whole tree.

Thanks for the comments everyone.The landscape in Yallingup is devoid of trees owing to westerly wind gales. Yet re duck last week had 3 collages of ducks accepted. Just a bit confused as some days images  accepted other days similar ones fail. Will have to be more creative and adventurous.

The fact is that on Shutterstock the reviews are sometime right (most of the time) sometime wrong
But very often inconsistent

BTW your photos, even seen in little size, looks very noisy, and I just can imagine what will see the inspector @100%

I enlarge every image to 100% before submitting and have a new  wide screen monitor. There is not much more I can do but must soldier on if I want to reach my $500 sales target in first year.

Have you looked at the duck in 100%

Of course as I said I enlarge every image to 100% BEFORE submitting.If it is not sharp clear and detailed I do not submit.

Then you have problems seeing noise. And it is something you will have to learn to see.

The duck image is totally disturbed by HEAVY noise, I can only imagine how it would look in 100%.
See this, which is not a perfect picture, there is noise and DOF is not wide enough:

ISO = 100. Is that too high? I thought that was ok?

Iso 100 is fine! When exposure is correct. The above duck is done with iso 400, on a nikon d 200, which is why the photo only holds water in a small size.

Was your duck done with iso 100? And what size of a crop is it?

My duck was done with 100 ISO and NO CROP at all. Canon EOS 600D with 55-250mm lens.

It looks like as if it was taken at iso 3200. Very noisy even at thumbnail size.

Are you sure? What settings do you have?

Else there must be something elsae wrong, like it was very underexposed and you have lifted it much.

Virtually no post photo processing shot in raw. I am still learning about raw but am very loathe to change settings much. Just a tad where needed like colour or light etc. Isn't the histogram supposed to be a curve upwards??

I think this photo is very common. I think at first you can learn the composition from others and later shooting situation, color...

There is something wrong here. Either your screen, your camera settings or the raw processing method.
It looks like a high iso shot.
What is shutterspeed and aperture in that photo?

It seems I have mis read the ISO=1000, speed =1/2000, f/5.6, distance 5.5 metres, 250mm focal length.
I am using 55-250 canon lens zoomed up a little to get this duck. The more you zoom the worse the noise, etc. Will have to stick with 18-55mm lens as no problems  like this.

That exactly sounds like you are going on auto iso.

So now you know what was wrong, and why you got the noise. High iso, simply.
