Besides problems, like artefacts and noise, you also have exposure problems on both pictures.
This is the histogram from Rejected1: You see that the whites are missing. Furthermore, because you did not use the whole range, contrast is missing.
Looking at that picture at 100%, you see that it's pretty out of focus. Unfortunately, you did not include EXIF data, but from the artefacts, I would guess that this is a picture from a smaller sensor camera. Correctly adjusted, denoised and in focus, the picture would be a nice one. But as presented, it's not good enough to be added to stock.
The same is true for your Rejected picture:
Out of focus, noise and artefacts, missing contrasts…

Thank you. I used all the whole range, maybe it's caused by the camera sensor that's small. Excuse me, but when you said there are no whites, do you mean that the photos are underexposed?
Whites are at the right of the histogram. The histogram goes basically (from left to right) from blacks-shadow-exposure-highlight-whites.
The exposure values are the middle of the histogram. When the curve is a straight line, that means that this part is missing, in your case the whites and part of the highlights. That's underexposed.
The photos are underexposed and the sky is a little too noisy.
Your photos are under exposed and has both color and luminance noise grains. To the extent of the underexposure, details are lost. You must be able to see the details in your photos as though you were looking on in real life. Therefore you need to use a camera whereby you can adjust for good exposure.
If you look carefully at this screenprint you will notice the grains in the sky. Also a closer look you will notice that some of the grains are colorful.
In addition to the Adobe resource given, you will benefit from some additional information on what is required to get your files accepted here, to produce good quality stock photos here and the limitations associated with small sensor cameras here.
Thank you 🙂
