Lastly, there are identifying letters/numbers on the boats.  If the quality met Adobe's standards they would very likely reject it for that reason as an IP violation.

Best regards, John

Surely you can see that very obvious and objectionable noise in the sky? I didn't even zoom in to inspect any other parts of the image further. You should read ALL of the material in the Adobe Stock Help pages before you upload any more images. Also study other images that are already in the stock database to become aware of the required quality level.

I'm sorry but this type of photo will not qualify for stock. The exposure is bad and there is a lot of color noise. There are also IP issues with the photo.
