It's cropped too tight - you've actually cut off part of the hooves, and there's no breathing space around the rest of the image. It also appears to be a black and white conversion, which is not accepted by Adobe stock. The animals are blended with the dark background - their edges are almost impossible to discern.

Black and white pictures are rarely accepted, as the buyer can easily convert to black and white, if needed, but they can't revert the colours, once they are gone. You need to consider stock images as the base for what the buyer would like to create. So it is best to develop in a very neutral, but correct way.

 

I would also have lowered the ISO and the f value, to get less noise. The compression is too high, when exporting you should really keep a good quality. You see the compression artefacts

Hi @Marlon-R,

The file is in black and white and has no defined margin in some places such as this

Avoid submitting black and white file to Adobe

Thanks, @Jill_C for the feedback, I didn't know black-and-white conversion was not allowed. I'll also pay attention to my subject's edging and definition. 
Used a tight crop as the rest of the frame was a bit rubbish and didn't have much of a story 😄

Have you read the Adobe Stock Learn & Support pages? There's a wealth of information there which will improve your chances of becoming a successful contributor. 

As to the background being unattractive, you could either just remove the subjects from the background and offer it as a transparent PNG file, or use Photoshop to drop them into a better background.

You see the compression artefacts in the dark areas. A buyer has absolutely no leverage to change your asset, as the compression blocks immediately shine through.
