I'm COMPLETELY new to these photo-stocking environment & having a serious issue.
Here, I have a photograph that is the best for representing Autumn Season to upload.
It is my original, sweet big photo that I never sold before.
(I believe it's the most suitable material to photo-stock! )
But somehow, ADOBE Rejected this & told me that it has some "Technical Issues".
(Although they didn't tell me exactly what it was)
As you can see me, I'm blind & useless about problems that I have.
So PLEASE HELP me to spot the problem!
(I'm totally having no idea here...)

I see a lot of focus problems. Ask yourself, "would I buy this image for a million dollar ad campaign?"
A search for "autumn" revealed 8.7 million results. What you submit to Stock must be technically perfect plus visually compelling enough to stand out from all the rest.
See Reasons for Rejection below:
Good luck with your next submission.
Thank you for replying!
The technical concept for this photo was "Draw abstruct like picture using bokeh & focal depth".
Some blur that you've recognized was not a mistake. It was meant to be there.
(Although the bokeh area was too much randomly spreaded & it makes difficult to see the concept)
But I see what you mean. I guess this picture was too much "Main-streamed".
My understandings to "Similar File Already Submitted" part was "the system uses AI to distinguish whether uploaded image was original or not".
But reality was "Adobe only accept Blue Ocean pictures (that has some brandnew specialities!)". Seems like I didn't quite unsterstand what Adobe Stock was really made for.
I'll looking for different client to this picture, and much better Piece for Adobe Stock!

In addition to the focus issues Nancy correctly pointed out, the white balance appears to be unnaturally warm. I do appreciate your enthusiasm but unfortunately, the moderators were correct in refusing the file.
I wish you the best of luck with your future uploads,
Thank you for Replying Mr.Mat Hayward!
But I actually, haven't touched its overall colour. It already turned out like this on Raw file.
All I have done was upgrading its apeture (light levels) & its image clearity.
However, your great word suggests me that "too much Artisan approach will cause some Rejection".
And that means I REALLY need to find some other "Realistic" editing way to get things going on Adobe Stock.
(Since all my other work has same characteristics!)
Many thanks! I will look more wise and get this work!

That is the great advantage of shooting in raw. You can change the parameters in post. The white balance is incorrect, even though you shot this in raw, the white balance setting may have been set wrong for the conditions. Therefore it needs to be corrected in post. In this image, it is too yellow.
