It's dramatic but the colors are over-saturated.  It doesn't look natural, too stylized.

 

In Stock photography, white balance should be neutral.  Customers will colorize images for their particular project based on what the project designer specifies, not what the photographer decides.

Read the Stock Contributor User Guide carefully, especially the DO's & DON'Ts.

Impressive scene, but it's quite over-processed. There are artifacts in the sky, halos along the edges of the mountains, and blurry areas, particularly in the foreground. It's also underexposed and over-saturated and it appears that you've applied a vignette which is not permitted in Adobe Stock. I've attached a couple of crops to illustrate these points.
