Increasing rejections of photos

Hi everyone, I've been selling photos on Adobe for a few years now and recently started uploading hundreds of high quality AI illustrations. All of them got accepted. But since they take ages to get approved, I started taking real photos again with the same style and camera as usual. This month 90% of my uploads got rejected because of quality issues and I just don't know why?! I tried to remove the minimal noise and chose a higher f-stop for new photos, but it didn't help. Can someone please enlighten me? It's extremely frustrating, because I have many ideas and would love to upload more photos again, but it's not worth it if they get rejected anyway 😞

 

1. photo of cherries - rejected because of quality

2. photo of strawberries - rejected because of quality (I uploaded different perspectives later, and they got rejected because I "already have similar stuff in my library", which is NOT true)

3. photo of a rainbow - rejected because of similar stuff in my library, which is not the case

4. photo of toys on a beach - rejected because of quality (?)

As the Adobe Stock catalog goes over 300 million pictures, it's natural that Adobe would raise their standards.

One thought: "Different perspectives" sounds pretty similar to me. Also - the message is misleading - it also applies where there are already more than enough similar photos by OTHERS. So you can usefully check out the competition before each photo shoot.

Just looking at the cherries. Out of focus.

The first image has almost nothing in focus. Depth of field is too shallow.

The second image has the same proble,. Part of one strawberry and part of the mint leaf are in focus. 
In the third image, not all the stripes of the chalk rainbow are in focus 
In the fourth image, since the sand toys and pail are the focal point, they should have been fully in focus. Another problem with depth of field.
