The information about what a "Technical Issue" is so vague that I'm unsure on what it may mean. Anyone have any feedback about this photo that might help me better understand what the technical issue is? Thanks in advance for your help!
I can't see a lot as you have put here a low res picture. But there are some problems with the exposure here:
May be there are also focus problems. That can't be worked out on your small size picture.

Sorry about that, I wasn't paying attention to the reduced quality. The original one was larger than the file size limit so I scaled it down, apparently too much. Is this one better?
I think at first glance is your composition - this is also a technical issue. You need more space around the flower. Currently it is bit squashed. Give the flower a bit more room to breathe.
There is a halloo towards the right edge of the image that gradually culminates into an out of focus section of the flower.
It would appear you needed more depth of field. Even though the left section of the flower is fairly sharp, there are sections that are out of focus. It would be difficult for anyone to crop it because of the section that is out of focus.
As I've described comprises your case of technical issue.
I think ricky336 is right. Especially because „flower pictures are available in great numbers on stock, so they need to have a wow factor“ to be accepted. There is the exposure flaw that I pointed out, there is the small imperfection pointed out by jacquelingphoto2017, but I really think that Ricky hit the correct reason.
It‘s the first flaw that a moderator sees that triggers the refusal.
