I uploaded a few photos from my vacation in Austria and it seems, that photos are having some technical issues. Could someone explain to me what did I do wrong?

Ideally the sun would be directly overhead or behind you, not facing you.  And there is much atmosphere (haze). For this reason, your images have some exposure problems.  And there is very little color saturation.

Hi @Jan5CC1 ,

I like the framing of your images. They are however a little under exposed and too cool. To shoot in light source as you did some of these, you'll find that utilizing fill lighting helps. Please note however, depending on the distance of your subject will determine the outcome. 

Best wishes

JG

I addition to what has been said: do not submit a bunch of pictures that are very similar (that's a different refusal, but still it's a refusal).

Yes, @Abambo makes a very good point.  Adobe Stock takes a very dim view to spamming reviewers with same/ similar images taken from a slightly different camera angle.  They're looking for unique content.
