Examine images at 200% magnification to see the problems.
Snowy Egret is blurry, contains noise, artifacts and chromatic aberrations (blue lines around his/her beak).
Also the branch is not in focus.
Adobe Stock customers expect the highest visual and technical quality for use in their own projects.

Better luck with your next submission. 🙂
As Nancy has indicated, focus is soft on both of the birds. The Japanese fountain also has a focus issue; the front of the wooden objects is over-exposed and has purple fringing. The souvenir magnets are probably an IP issue - someone's artwork that you would have had to get a signed release to use. The shells in the sand are also not focused perfectly, and the image has a white balance problem - too blue.
When I first started submitting images to Adobe Stock, I uploaded and submitted only a handful at a time. I waited for feedback, then fixed the issues if possible, or just moved on to the next batch if they weren't fixable. Initial rejection rate was high (~25-30%) as I learned to look at my images more carefully; but now it's probably <5%. Hope this helps.
Hello, @Nancy OShea gives you the answer to youre first photo.
The second photo is also noisy and not focused.
The third photo shoud have more depth of field and alligned horizontaly and vertically.
The fourth and fifth photos should be cropped so that items at the top and bottom are not cut. For instance
Hi @ThroughLisasLens ,
There is also an exposure issue with the shells in the sand. The shadow is too dark and details are lost. The fourth image is noisy.

Thanks so much for all the constructive feedback. I can see I have a lot of work to do, improving my photos for next time.
