I agree with @Jill_C : out of focus. It is also slightly underexposed.

If you check the histogram, you will see, that whites are missing.

 

In addition you have colour clipping, where there should be continuous tones:

Any of these are quality issues and each of those will earn you a quality issue refusal if you do not correct. The image sharpness is not fixable.

As here in the guide :https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography/discover/white-balance.html it is said that basically white balance is to correct the blueness, but lets say I click the photo and while adjusting the whiteness my real shot become over edited and it looks like a fake one, so will it still create issues in the approval process?

It's possible to over correct the white balance. Try to aim for a natural look.

By the way, for this shot it will be difficult to correct the colour cast.

This photo is too yellow.

To fix it a little, you will have to use curves tool and use the individual channels RGB, to get it more neutral:

E..g:

But my quick fix isn't that good.

I would go back to the drawing board and forget this shot. A good example of white balance gone wrong!

It is not in sharp focus and is also rather noisy.

@ricky336 said: may not be… not is not! It's always a narrow walk between doing it right and getting a pleasant image, or overdoing it. I doubt, however, that you ever get this asset approved, because of the different other flaws with this asset, where the biggest issue is focus or camera shake or movement of the subject. Those are impossible to correct.

 

In addition to my posting above, I have now seen this, that I would stamp out:

White balance correction is a combination of temperature and tint. The temperature goes from blue to yellow, so it is not exactly the blueness that gets changed. I often do an Auto correct, and then I adapt that to my liking, if I do not have a neutral grey to pick.

 

What did your real shot initially look like?

  • Common subject. Stock has millions & millions of flowers already.
  • Poor focus, narrow depth of field.
  • Poor lighting leads to noise.
  • Improper white-balance (too much yellow).

Consult your Stock Contributor User Guide.

 

Adobe Stock customers expect the highest visual and technical quality for use in commercial projects.

 

Hope that helps.
