Looking for design feedback on a WordPress theme

I submitted a theme about a month ago and just got some feedback. The first portion was to make sure my theme name isn’t used by other themes. No biggy.

The second is a bit vague. It was the following:

“2. Any incomplete, not prime-ready, low quality or not unique enough theme might be hard rejected. You are simply reserving the queue with an incomplete submission and creating a review delays. This applies to conversions as well!”

Then a few links to design articles and a couple screenshots of my theme with no context provided.

These two actually.

My thoughts are that I could probably improve the image used under the homepage banner and add in some CSS animations to keep it performant and slick. I’d love some feedback though!
