this is the file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pxpplf19s0wurw0/Improve1.jpg
and this is the reason for rejection:
We found the overall composition of this file's lighting could be improved. Some of the technical aspects that can all limit the usefulness of a file are:
- Flat/dull colors
- Direct on-camera flash and/or flash fall-off (bright subject, dark background)
- Harsh lighting with blown-out highlights that lack details and/or distracting shadows
- Distracting lens flares
- Incorrect white balance

I'd appreciate a lot any suggestion to improve this issue. I can resubmit the file.

IMO there is a difference in the lighting left and right. The top of the right stack seems to have less light. Also the grey background takes away the freshness of the image.

It's underexposed. The grey background should be white, and the assumption is that these are supposed to be isolated on white as there is no texture or shadow in the background. You would also be better off getting nice shiny new coins for a shot like this. I'm afraid that I can't see anything in focus either.
