Underexposed, blurry, noisy and perhaps over-saturated. Additionally, sunsets and sunrises (I don't know which this one is) are very over-represented in Adobe Stock already. Yours would have to be technically perfect to be accepted and unique to ever be sold.

Hi,

 

which reason was mentioned here? The Picture looks overall way to dark and unsharp.

Before you submit, please review the submission guidelines carefully and compare your work with other Stock inventory. To be accepted, your work should be as good or better than what's already represented in your keyword category.

I think @Jill_C is correct. Underexposed, blurry and noisy.

It seems to me that Adobe are not looking for creativity, they want commercial appeal. I have sbumitted photos that were perfectly exposed...then rejected on technical grounds. Losing faith in Adobe Stock.

You are 100% right. They will only accept work with commercial appeal that is technically perfect. If you can combine this with creativity done with a clear understanding of the market, you will potentially sell well.  Adobe are not, however, a gallery to take art on the artist's terms.

Pictures need to be commercially usable. Anything that the buyer can do himself, like applying fancy filters, should be let to the buyer. And sorry, but I've seen here many people talking about their high-quality pictures, but when you look at them, they are not that high quality. And perfectly exposed is also not always true.

It appears that you have misunderstood Adobe Stock's business plan. It is CENTERED around commercial appeal. It is not a gallery for you to display your art. There are other outlets for you to do that. Here is an excerpt from one of Adobe's help pages:

Quality overview

For content to have commercial value, it must be high quality. Learn about quality and technical issues and how to avoid content rejection.

In general, images and video should be in focus and well-lit with no signs of artifacts. Vectors should be organized and filled shape paths should be closed. Some content may look great in an art gallery but isn’t ideal for stock. Before you upload content, ask yourself how it can be used commercially. If you were a customer, would you buy the image? If the answer is yes, think about what you would use it for.

Below are quality issues that the review team might call out specifically and what they mean.
