Hi everyone, I'm new here, totally a beginner, I have uploaded a few photos, mostly were accepted and I'm truly happy with that for my first time, however I would to have some input about this one that was rejected due to technical issues. 

 

I'm looking forward to learn so I would appreciate any feedback on what is wrong in this photo so I can do better next time... or even making this one better if still possible. 

 

thanks in advanced for the help

It's severely underexposed to the point where there is no discernible detail in a good portion of the image; it also has a white balance issue (too blue), and is out of focus. I zoomed in and scrolled around in the image and couldn't actually find anything in focus. Shooting at f4.5 is not advisable for a landscape image. You can find some helpful info here:

Proper lighting is essential in photography.  This is too dark. And there's not much color information.  I'm not saying this can't be improved, but it will be challenging.

The "dark, gritty and cinematic tones" don't adhere to Adobe Stock guidelines for subtle, realistic processing:

"Do: Process your images subtly — clean color images that are in focus sell well."


By all means, process an image for your own use with whatever enhancements please you, but create a clean, realistic version for submission to Adobe.
