you get a file rejected because of a logo


file_thumbview_approve 


so you remove the logo and resubmit it onlt to get it rejected for


We found the overall composition of this file's lighting could be improved. Technical aspects that can affect the overall quality of lighting are: flat/dull colors, blown-out highlights, harsh reflection, shadows or lens flares. These can all limit the usefulness of a file.



I've got no quibble with the reason for rejection but why oh why couldn't they have rejected it outright in the first place?

Did you want a critique? If you can resubmit, you could do something in post processing this to improve it...

thanks jsnover, I accept what they said about the flat lighting and blown highlights but I can't resubmit it. I have others from this series but I thought this had the best stock potential.

You may want to clean up the kid's face, adjust the hair, and work on the lighting for your next shoot.

Thanks - you were right about the snot and muck - not sure about adjusting the hair though

The original thread was about having a rejection after being asked to correct a problem. Wasn't after a crit - I accepted the rejection - would have saved time to reject it first time though.

And if you read the sticky, you'll see that's not the way we roll over here.

This is for critiques, not ranting/venting, though we're pretty easy going and acknowledge that sometimes the venting comes before the understanding. For all of us.

So my first occasion to get in hot water when I was new here was to complain about exactly the point you did - I got an image rejected for copyright and when I cloned out the item in question it was rejected for something else (lighting, I think).


I was asked if I wanted a little cheese to go with my whine and lobbed back that while I'm sure they were having fun with a newbie I didn't appreciate having my time wasted like this.


I repeat this ancient history by way of saying that I really do understand what you're ranting about, but one of the things you need to get comfortable with here (and at all the micropayment sites) is dealing with rejections. There will be fewer of them once you've learned more about acceptance standards, but you won't always get all the image's flaws detailed in a rejection notice.


Before you decide to resubmit something, you really need to be sure it's up to par and only needs that one little thing fixed. Obviously that's harder to do when you're new, but I don't often resubmit things, and sometimes I wait until the remainder of a series is uploaded and accepted - which is one way to be sure that you're on the right track.


There's no penalty to waiting a bit before resubmitting, so sit on your rejections a bit and work on other images and see if you still feel the same way about the image once the initial sting of the rejection (and it always does sting a little bit when an inspector fails to see the sheer genius of one of our shots ) has worn off.
