This image was rejected due to noise/grains problem. I guess it is mainly because of the editing done on the image, but I'm not sure at all.
Also, I would appreciate any helpful comment on how to improve my photography skills.
I'm a total newbie
ISO 100 50mm(Prime) f5.6 1/800
Thanks in advance
Greetings and welcome newbie. Personally, I love this action photo. I do see a potential problem or two. One is the sky, take a look at 100 + magnification and see grain or noise there. This happens if you darken or add saturation of color for the bold contrast look. I am more an illustrator than photographer so I will leave exposure issue to others here. Maybe scrub the beer sign in lower right just in case a buyer does not want it.
For now, here are a few guidelines provided by Adobe for stock contributors. You will notice there is a section for "Newbies". Best regards, JH

I think your photo is too contrasty. You do have some noise in the sky area - chromatic noise (colour noise - coloured pixels):
But, you will probably have issues with IP rights - signs on buildings - HSBC, the tourist boat, the beer sign among others. You need to be aware of these things when taking these kinds of shots.
You DO need to have a read of the links Joan mentioned and follow on to the other links which are also mentioned at the top of the Contributor page, as well as the Critique page. This is a very good place to start!!
Thanks for your reply.
As I mentioned, I am totally new to the field of photography and I'm trying to learn. It seems the learning curve is much steeper than one would think
I didn't even notice the HSBC sign
I will follow the link that Joan mentioned, it is always helpful to hear the opinions of the experts in the field. Thank you both.
I believe the image is a little too sharp. That might be what causes the grains in the sky. It is especially visible in the blue area. In addition to the joan and Ricky's comments, recommendations, and link, I will add the following that you should also read.

My advise to you about photography, is to first read all the information about your camera. Use the appropriate settings for the scene or portrait you photograph. Experiment with all your camera features and see which works best for you. Use adequate lighting/exposure. Take time to focus. Do not move the camera too quickly after each shot. Research and read-up all you can find about photography.
