I think there are probably many things you still have to learn about the expectations in commercial photography. I'm just looking at shot planning/composition here. To pick just one point in each picture:

- the bird's tail is cropped

- the tower is leaning

- the feather shot is marred by distracting white posts

- the building has power cables and another object in the top corner

First:

  • Your direct flash introduces hard shadows and overexposed areas.

  • The tail is cropped, the picture would be more usable if the entire bird is in frame.
  • Your box has light leaks that distract from the subject.
  • The carton box may be effective for what you want to do, but it's probably not great as a picture background, neither for friends of nature nor for friends of cage birds.
  • Your in-camera processing did "denoise" correctly focussed feather detail. It took the detail for noise. Other parts of the birds body are over sharpened.
  • The bird’s eye is not sharp. That is absolutely necessary for portrait shoots.
  • Out of focus area is washed out and contains artefacts from bad denoising algorithms.

Second: Same camera same processing problems:

  • The denoising sometimes takes legit structures for noise, and "washes" it out...

  • Despite being denoised,  you still have a lot of noise in the picture.

Third:

By now you know it: wrong composition. You need to get the whole bird's feather in the picture. And you need to take care of the artefacts:

There are other defects that all by itself lead to a refusal.

Fourth: Oversaturated, grainy and bad overall composition. In addition, you should photoshop disturbing elements out of the view:

No need to start with this picture, it is anyhow doomed.
