I am new this, where is the error? and how can I fix it?
You do not tell us the refusal reason, but I would bet it is the missing model release as you for sure do not have those of all the people in the image.
Any person that is recognizable in a picture needs to sign a model release.
Hello David Fs, Welcome to Adobe Stock contributions. Very nice photo by the way. However, Abambo is correct, there are people you will need releases from the recognizable ones for sure. If you intend to continue contributing to Adobe Stock there are guidelines prepared for you to follow. Here is some information about the releases. Also, read guidelines for beginning stock contributors. Best regards, JH
For your images to have commercial value, we expect them to be:

You can download a model release template from the Adobe Stock Contributor portal, find it here, or route the model release for an electronic signature using Adobe Sign directly from the Contributor portal. The process is straight forward and there’s no need to download any software to make it work. For information, see Upload a model or property release.
Download our detailed checklist to confirm that you are including all the required information:
Use this model release checklist to make sure that the forms you submit comply with our requirements.
We accept model releases in many languages. We also accept forms obtained from other sources if they include all the required information found in our checklist and are filled out properly. See above for downloadable Model release checklist.
To find the reason your image was rejected please open your contributor page and click on "Rejected" on the menu below the black menu bar at the top of the page. We cannot help you to fix the problem except we know exactly what the moderators reject your image for. In my opinion your rejection could be for model release, or exposure, or technical issue.
In my opinion, in addition to the need for model releases, most of the image appears to need straightening. Yes, the clock tower appears straight, but take a close look at the street lamp in the foreground, and the palm trees towards the right. That tiny tree trunk towards the top right could be filled with sky. The shadows could be lightened a bit more.
As others have said:
-perspective needs to be corrected,
-increase shadows a bit,
-reduce the highlights,
And most likely a model release for the people - but I guess you won't be able to get that. So, for future reference, if people can be recognised, and you can't get a release for them, don't bother uploading. (Or clone out the people.)
