I've had one of my first photos on here rejected - that's fair enough, I'm new to all this. Why, though, am I forbidden to re-submit this particular image? I notice from other threads on here that people often re-submit after making the corrections suggested in the rejection critique, which seems perfectly fair.
Is there any specific reason why I cannot resubmit this one after adjusting the image quality?
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:
-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
You cannot resubmit the file.

My guess would be that it can't be submitted because it's also out of focus or possibly it's camera shake, either way, there's nothing sharp enough here. Also, the brighter bits of the background are rather distracting, and such common subjects are held to a high standard.

As I understand it, re-submissions are allowed if there is a good chance that the image can be fixed satisfactorily.
In this case, I would suggest that the background is too dark in places (leaf shadows) and also too light in another place (light coloured leaf - one third way up from bottom right). It would be very difficult to fix both problems simultaneously, so therefore a 'no resubmit'.
A secondary consideration is sometimes the rarity of the subject matter - where the subject is commonplace, a no-resubmit is more likely.

Also just for the future reference to help you get in the habit to triple check your work, there is a outline of the leaf on the bottom of left (viewer left ) corner, it looks like you have tried to get this leaf out of there but left traces of it.

^ Freaky, actually maybe this isn't a common subject, looks like you caught part of The Predator there!
