Hi there. Would anyone know why these photos would be rejected (technical issues)?

To start with, these seem to be essentially the same picture.Adobe do not want you to submit nearly identical pictures. The only significant difference is the composition, which is not great (for a stock photo) in the second because it cust off the subject. I hope others will comment if they see any issue on a pixel level or statistical examination.

You mean apart from the fact that this is a fiercely competitive category because Adobe Stock already have millions of technically perfect light and dark rose images? OK.  Examine your photos at 100-200% magnification.  You'll start to see artifacts and noise among other things.

Sharpen your photos to make them crisp and jump out at the viewer. Cleanup the backgrounds and add highlights, shadows and vibrance.

The composition isn't very good and there are problems with noise and exposure. I would look at some of the other rose pictures on stock to see what competition there is!

Hi @LizaE ,

In addition to the noise/grain and similar mentioned by others, there is also a camera shake which makes it unsuitable for stock. Also it is underexposed.
