Adobe TOLD YOU why it was rejected. Please tell us what they said (for example, IP violation, technical issues)? I can tell you photo 1 has IP violation, and needs an IP release. And photo 2 is pretty, but not commercial standard - everything is blurred. Yes, it is hard to take good photos at night.

I agree with the 2 previous comments. The technical issues become quite apparent when you zoom in to at least 100% which is what Adobe suggests you do on every image before submission. You can also spend some time looking at other images in the Adobe Stock database to calibrate your comprehension of the quality level that is expected.

"They are very good pictures if i say so myself "

Sorry to be blunt, Mirjam, but you should be a little more self-critical.

 

#1 is not level (the horizon should always be horizontal), is underexposed and has some noise and other pixelation artifacts.

#2 is extremely blurry and noisy, which is obvious even when looking at it in a small size. It also has blown out highlights.

 

Don't be discouraged, though, practice makes perfect.

 

Hope that helps,

Michael

Picture 1: Besides the technical issues explained, you need to photoshop the ship names and identifiers. In addition as there are identifiable people in view, you need a model release from those. 

 

Picture 2: Get a tripod for night photos. And take care of the noise if you are photographing at high ISO. Even at a high ISO, the noise level needs to come down to normal, withjout hurting the details and sharpness. That's asking for quite some experience in postproduction.
