I submitted 8 dark and moody style food photography photos and they were all declined "for technical issues". I know the focus was good and I strongly believe the fact that the photo was dark except for the main subject in the foreground which was well lit, was read by a software program or scanned too quickly by a reviewer. I even put dark and moody in the title to show it is an intentional style. Has anyone else had a problem trying to submit this style of food photography?
Adobe Stock reviewers are human. If your images were rejected for technical reasons, I believe there are indeed technical issues. But I can't see your images so cannot comment further except to say Adobe Stock looks for highest visual and technical quality. See links below.

I don't think so. Stock has accepted 1.8 million so far.
