Artifacts or Raindrops?

I have recently uploaded this photo to Adobe Stock and it was rejected due to "graininess and artifiacts". My question is, was this judgment made by a real human or through software analysis? This photo was taken right after a rain storm, and I wanted to capture the rain droplets on the petals. Is this the problem? Or, do you see real graininess and artifacts? Thanks for any help!

I can understand you wanting to capture that image. It's really beautiful. I don't think the raindrops are the problem. The photo looks oddly over sharpened and it is a bit grainy.

View your image at 100% zoom and you'll see quite a bit of grain and some artifacts from over sharpening.

See how noisy it is? And there are halos on the edge of the petals (especially obvious in the lower right of the cropped image I made).

From what I've seen, minimal editing is preferred. Since most Adobe Stock users are using the images inside Photoshop, there's really no need for anything drastic as far as post work goes on the images.
