Commercial value is not the problem. 

Each photo has some technical issues. Several have White Balance problems.

Meaning some are too yellow, some too blue.

Focus (depth of field) is also a problem in some of the photos.

Fringing between dark and light areas is also noticable in some of the photos.

The skies are all burnt out with no detail.

Also, watch your cropping. Parts of branches or other objects lcut off on the side must be removed. 

Be careful of framing. Turning the camera at an angle w

Were the reasons for rejection the same. Did some call out no commercial intent? This would help the experts answer better

The white balance is utterly wrong. This happens when having either the wrong lighting or if the colours are dominated by one colour.

(...)536:

Shadows and mid-tones to dark, whites to dominant, painterly look due to in-camera post-processing for probably noise reduction.

(...)706: Shadows to dark, there is no structure in the trees' bark. The overall image is underexposed.

(...)627: Shadows to dark :

Noise and other HDR induced artefacts.

(...)205: Wrong white balance (too cool), underexposed, no blacks, missing contrast and more defects:

Abambo_3-1639870046141.png

The right side is the quick and dirty corrected image, but it's by far not yet acceptable. Details have been optimized out. All in all, a typical small sensor camera image. However, the white balance on such an image could be correct.

 

My opinion: All of these images have been refused because of technical issues, and that's probably the reason you should have given to us. You should examine critically your potential submissions for technical issues on a big screen where you can set the magnification to 100% and 200% in your image viewer. Don't assume, what is looking good in small is usable for stock.

Perhaps you can suggest specific word changes in the reply, which will cause you less offence. Or you can be happy that people volunteered perhaps an hour of their own time to help an aspiring commercial artist. 

 

And, in future BE SURE to give us the rejection reasons. This is important, because guessing may waste your time as well as ours.
