View at 250%. The edges are not sharp.
There was a discussion just the other day about some graphics that were rejected that were made in Photoshop. The consensus was that simply submitting a graphic as a photo instead of a vector may be in a to net a technical rejection. Regardless when I look at this, I believe having it as a vector would be more appropriate.
There's some other subtle things in here as well. Like @RALPH_L pointed out that when zoomed in the edges appear jagged. The graphic isn't centered in the frame, and the line splitting the two colors of the circle is also not centered. The bow tie, the circle, and the dog all appeared to be varying levels of sharp & blurry. I don't know what if any of what I mentioned the reviewers paid attention and I believe them to be correctable.
I wonder if the dog graphic would have more commercial value without the bow tie and colored circle? But the commercial value isn't in question here.
My Boston terrier pup was a photo 1.) I brought into Adobe Capture . That program auto traces images in black . I think they are vectors at that point. 2.) brought that image into photoshop. 3) added bow tie and colors. 4) saved as jpeg to upload to Adobe stock. It's not a photo at this point, it's not a vector. It's an illustration , rendering . So , saying that you realize the edges are jagged . And why do I need a model or property release for my dog ? 🤷:female_sign:Please advise. Thank you in advance.
And should I resubmit Again with a new image from scratch?
Illustrations should be submitted as vectors, not jpegs. See link below.
Using autotrace is also discouraged as it makes the illustration harder to alter with an absurd number of anchor points.
Adobe doesn't know whose artwork it is until you fill out the form. If it's your artwork, you just fill it out with you as the artist.

There are many similarities to Photoshop and Illustrator. I do not mean this sarcastically when I say their uses are hinted in their names. I hope you create some awesome illustrations!
And there are plenty of articles and videos floating around the web about vector vs raster images, why autotrace isn't particularly suited for commercial work, and better ways to create vectors from photos.
