Very little in focus due to the shallow depth of field, and harsh lighting creating bright spots and dark shadows.

Poor:

Subject,

angle,

composition,

lighting,

camera settings.

 

Apart from that, there's no commercial value.  Put yourself in the customer's shoes.  Would you buy this?  What would you use it for commercially?  Read these links.

You cannot use the a picture in Adobe Stock to suggest yours should be accepted. Adobe now have over 300 million pictures and have raised their standards. Your work must be world class, perfect, commercial photography. You need to deal with ALL the criticisms, not just focus - but perfect focus is taken for granted. But don't bother with flowers! There are already 26 million flower pictures. Research what subjects are needed, to build up your business.

No, no one can explain it. The Moderators are human, therefore acceptance/rejection is a judgment call. Additionally, as @Test Screen Name indicated, standards change over time. When Adobe was first building the database, they may have been more lenient. Also, camera and editing technologies have improved dramatically during the years Adobe Stock has been in business, so they can be expected to raise standards over time.

I totally get it. But it follows that in addition to understandable criteria, a lot depends on the mood of the Adobe Stock employee. In my previous selection of four identically processed photos, two were accepted one day but the other two assessed the next day were rejected for quality reasons

It's irrelevant.  Comparing your work with one image out of many millions is pointless. You don't know when it was approved.  It might have been grandfathered in from Fotolia long before Adobe took over. 

 

Don't worry about things you can't change.  Concentrate on the things you CAN change. 

 

Successful Stock Contributors don't make excuses.  Nor do they blame reviewers.  Quite the opposite.  Successful contributors examine ways in which to improve themselves and make their artwork better. 

 

You've received some good advice so far.  Now use it wisely.

Focus! Flower pictures need to be more than perfect, as there are so many in the database, that Adobe does not need more. So they are exceotional stringent.
