Two of my latest uploads were rejected for "technical issues," and I can't see any reason for this.Would someone want to examine the two photos (attached) and tell me what I'm missing?

 

Thanks!

Both are quite artistic, but I suppose the Moderator would judge them to be underexposed.

If I printed the first one, 90% would be black ink.  😥

The second image is too red.

The odd texture in this one looks like oversharpening to me, and there is also some clipped parts of the main subject.  Histogram reflects the image is underexposed.  There also appears to be white spots on the fruit that should be removed before shooting or cloned out.

Parts of the main subject are underexposed, and the histogram indicates the image is underexposed.

The detail in the clipped areas wasn't able to be recovered no matter how much I adjusted exposure, at least in the jpeg you posted.

 

I hope that helps!

The first (orange?) is underexposed and oversaturated. Even if I would consider this image as a pleasant and artistic one, the underexposure should be corrected.

The second has some noise and artefacts:

In addition, borders are razor sharp. And shadows are like black holes with no detail to recover.

No need to be snooty and condescending about this, Thomas. I've been shooting seriously for decades and have been selling photos for "commercial projects" for all that time, including prestigious magazines. I also have won a good number of highly competitive awards, including Nature's Best and a Wildlife Photographer of the Year winner. In fact, 95% of the photos I submit to Adobe Stock are accepted, and the same thing with my submissions to Alamy and Shutterstock. So please, no lectures on quaity.

Hello,

Good shots yes, but the exposure and saturation is a problem I think. Do you think they would print out well?

Thanks to veryone for their sharp analyses. Very helpful, and I'll be more aware of these issues in the future. (The photo of the berries was focus stacked, and the one of the orange was light pained using the Harold Ross technique.)

 

Funny thing is, however, that my other agencies--Alamy and Shutterstock--both accepted these photos, and Shutterstock tends to me more picky than Adobe.
