Rejected for Technical Reasons

Hi, I new to Adobe Stock and Stock photography in general. I know I might not have the "style" of stock photography that's going to sell bucket loads of images if any at all but I'm here to somewhat sharpen and advance my technical side.

Ive had this images rejected for Technical issues. I think it's based on Exposure and the loss of detail in the shadows and blacks.

Could you tell if I'm right or can you see more technical issues with this image.

Thanks in advance

You should submit in colour, not B&W. Buyers can do their own version of the image.

'Technical issues' in this case being that it's in B&W.

In addition there is a logo in the bg. Would also have been refused for IP violation.

I actually think it's the framing... I'm guessing the triangular things are the main subject, but there seems to be a lot of building in the background... maybe recrop the image or blur those buildings a little in post. The first triangle is cut off though.. it's like the architectural/concrete version of cutting off someone's foot from a portrait

People on here say don't submit B&W, but I've had loads of B&W accepted. So long as it's not over arty (too much grain or contrast etc.), i don't think they mind... unless colour adds to the shot of course...

There is also an exposure problem in this picture.

And if my personal and really unqualified and subjective feeling on the picture is of value: I do not see what it is representing. I’m missing the story.

It's an allegory about Toblerones and how they increased the space between segments. Obviously.
