    Too much noise or post-processing?

      Does this really have too much noise? Or is it more some minor editing I did?
      I'm very new to photography and Adobe Stock.

          Same thing with this picture as well

            I don't see noise, but I do see sensor dust or lens spots (directly above the top plane). At this size, it appears that the focus isn't sharp enough, and that may be the real reason it has been rejected.

             

            I don't know how the images are evaluated, but I envision someone sitting in a dark room, spending about 5 seconds looking at an image, then pushing the "Accept" button or one of the various "reject" buttons available to them. I'm getting about a third of my images rejected. In some cases when I submit a series of images all taken with the exact same lighting and set-up, 1 is accepted and others are rejected for "noise". There doesn't seem to be a lot of consistency in the selection process.

              Just because of the subject matter here, I'm sure if you zoom right in to the dark sections of the picture you will see a lot of noise. In fact, I think it's impossible to shoot such a subject with no noise, so I don't understand why they reject all of them...
