Adobe denied a few photos of mine, I even have sold at my exhibitions. They tell me, they are not sharp enough. OK, Adobe, have you ever heard about something called "Bokeh"?! Of course not everything is focused then... By catching the last sunlight in a sunset, of course its NOT that light this is the special atmosphere in the evening...just watching the last peaceful colours of a day...
And by taking photos of flowers in front of a black background, to present the flower in a special kind of way, the blackground is DARK because its BLACK. A lot of people bought these pictures, so what is wrong? Isn´t the most important thing, that it is a nice picture and not technically perfect?!
You mix art with stock. What Adobe search (IMHO) are clear photos with not so much edit on them, no frames, no sepia, no B/W.
Think on this way: artist what to create something and he/she find your photo and like it. But he/she want just normal photo which he/she can edit on the way which will match to the idea. Not to search for already edited photo
