I am new here,
could someone help me with these photos, what would you improve with them ?
You have not submitted full-size pictures, so it's more difficult to detect the cause of the refusal, but I would guess:
If you are new to stock, you should consider these resources: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/tutorials.html

Thank you for your advice,
You should note that sunrises/sunsets are plenty in the database, so you need to provide really excellent pictures to get them accepted.
Hello @Konrad5CD7 , mainly all of your photos have the same issues. The shadows are under exposed and the highlights are overexposed. This causes loss of detail. Also, your colors are a little bit dull. You also have way too much foreground. This is way to much black in your photos. In some of the skeis, birds can be seen which also need to be removed. Here is an example of how you could possibly improve your first photo. I cropped it on the composition rule "Rule of Thirds" which reduces the foreground. I also added light rays. I increased the exposure, saturated the colors and did some noise reduction. Remember, sunset photos is a high competition genre so you need perfect photos.
Thank you very much,
Your comments are very valuable to me,
Now I'm beginning to understand what to do.
I'm afraid these photos aren't very interesting. Apart from the technical details, which also includes composition, there isn't any aesthetic or commercial appeal. One of the categories Adobe uses.
What could these images be used for commercially?
