I think focus may be an issue. The bread should be sharp.

I'm sorry to disagree with my fellow forum member, @Ralph Lear, but I don't think focus is your problem.  I think borders are the problem. Adobe Stock doesn't accept images with borders or watermarks.  Get rid of the white borders and resubmit your photo. Good luck!

I like the photo. But let's look at it from the view of someone who wants to make an advertisment.

- the colours look artificial EVEN IF THEY ARE REAL

- the animal in the front is not lit enough. Yes, I know that is because it is at night, but Adobe's stock buyers expect perfection, even if it is impossible

- the composition is nice, but rather spoiled by a tent.

This is a nice photo - I'd rather have it on my wall than 99% of the photos in Adobe stock - but it seems more like art than commercial photography.

Look at your photo with 100% or 200% maginification. There are artifacts around the mountain edges. The sky also has color noise. The photo foreground is under exposed.

Here you can see the artifacts.

This picture has multiple issues:

  • The composition is not great.
  • If this is the original quality, you have artefacts.
  • It may have a focus issue. Applying sharpening helps. And yes, the bread should be in focus.
  • Borders and watermarks will get you a refusal all times. No image merits considered in this case.
