Hello, I tried to submit this photo to Adobe Stock but it was rejected. Can someone tell me why (and what I could do better)? I am 14 years old.

When you are 14 years old, you can't contribute. You need to be at least 18 if my memories are correct. https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/submission-guidelines.html

The image contrast is not good. Look at your histogram. Most of the information is in the whites or the highlights.

This makes your image dull.

By only clicking the Auto button on Adobe Camera Raw, you get much more dynamic into the picture:

This doesn't help you to get your image accepted on Adobe stock, but it will get you more likes on social media. For stock, you would need to correct all the artefacts beforehand. The missing sharpness, however, can't be corrected.

First of all, you have already violated the Adobe Terms and Conditions by lying and stating that you are 18, which is the minimum age to become a Contributor. You should immediately contact Adobe and ask to have your account closed.

 

The most obvious flaw in the image is blownout are with no detail whatsoever. That is not recoverable.

No, the Adobe guidelines clearly state that you, the Contributor, must be 18. You have to file a tax form, and agree to a contract. Did you read the Contributor Handbook and all the other Adobe Stock help pages:

=========

NO.  It's not fine. We have child labor laws in this country.

Take some photography classes at school. This isn't the place to learn how to be a photographer. 

Come back when you're over 18.

I think there's a difference in labor and contributor.

Yes, there is. But the rules here with Adobe Stock stipulate that you are 18 years old. That is for legal reasons, probably.
