Hi @mizzmmm ,
For those I look at, about 4, they seem to share the same general problems. Your image are a bit under-exposed. You could also add a smaller amount of warmth so that they look a bit more vibrant. There also seem to be the tendency to sharpen a little too much. The usually result in a halo of grains around the edges as in the screenshot below.
You probably need to set your aperture for deeper depth of field. This is especially important when shooting groups like in the case of the police and landscapes.
Too much of the edges of this image is also out of focus. To inspect your images please zoom to between 100 and 200%. At that magnification you are able to see more clearly the faults of your files. Even under-exposure is more obvious at the magnification.
Succulents have bad framing. Top of image is clipped.
You also have image quality problems. When zoomed in you start to see JPEG compression artifacts. The pixels start to appear blocky.
This is a disadvantage when using smartphones. They don't enlarge very well, and so don't make such good stock photos.
While the replies you've received are probably all valid I have found that Adobe seem to have a policy only talking one or two images from any group submission. I use high end gear. My shots are always sharp and pretty technically correct. If I submit say ten pics to Adobe all with identical specs I know before they are 'reviewed' that about seven will be rejected for 'Technical Issues'. These same images are normally all taken up by other sites like Getty.
So 'Technical Issues' can be something unspecified in your image or it can be Adobe just using their catch-all rejection phrase. Maybe its to keep their contributors hungry, maybe its that they have limited storage, maybe the reviewers have very refined tastes. Nobody seems to know.
The policy is actually 6 from a series that is similar as long as each one contributes something different to the customer. For example a truck, the front, a side with a meter, a plane side, back, top, corner angle taking in back and a side, corner angle taking in front and a side, underneath if possible will do. That is eight, but they are different enough.
Rejection for similar says just that. Technical rejection means there are other issues the moderator sees that need correcting if it can be corrected. If it can be corrected you do so and resubmit.
