No idea. I like it a lot. Maybe a little heavy on the clarity/sharpening on the tracks?
What was the rejection reason they gave?
It might look a bit oversharpened, but my guess would be how noisy the image is in the sky. But, again, when an image is rejected, they give a reason. If you tell us what it is, we would have a better guess.
The reason was mentioned here in German:
"Ein zu hoher Anteil an Artefakten/Rauschen kann durch zu wenig Licht, ungeeignete Kameraeinstellungen, starke Komprimierung und übermäßige Nachbearbeitung entstehen."
Too high portion of artefacts / noise, maybe because of too less light, inappropriate camera setting, high compression and inappropriate post-processing.
However, I didn't applied a post-processing, only used the advanced night modus of my smartphone. Maybe already too fancy

As I suspected; it's the noise. Try shooting with a lower ISO.
You might be able to rescue this image by using some denoising tools on it.
Thanks for your help Szalam, really appreciated.
