I guess the standard quality is still rising. The pictures accepted a month or so ago, are no longer good enough. And I'm afraid it will continue that way untill only professional photographers with professional equipment (sp?) can get pictures worthy of being added here. I know it sounds harsh, but I guess it is the only way to reduce the number of photos added. The more photos that are added, the higher the standard for quality gets. (Or something like that.)
Too bad your pictures were not added. Was it due to lack of quality after the scanning process? If it was, keep scanning them over until you get better results, and re upload them. (If you have the time to do so.)

Don't lose heart. The pics you posted above are very good (although the 2 at the bottom are actually enhanced a bit because of the ground reflections, in my opinion).
I suggest that, while you are figuring out what Johan likes and doesn't like, you only upload maybe 5 or 10 pics at a time. That way, if they are rejected, you didn't loose a whole day's work. Once I uploaded nearly 100 pics in a single day, and had all but a few rejected. Very frustrating
By the way, you didn't post this shot, which content-wise is really excellent, although the quality of the scan is borderline. The pics up above are much better, quality wise.
One of the most difficult things to figure out in scanning pictures is how much sharpening can you do before things look jagged or grainy. You also have to take into account what kind of screen Johan uses - I think he probably has a better, clearer screen than I do, becasue I was sometimes puzzled when he sent back shots saying they were blurry, while I couldn't get it any better on my screen.
Keep trying - you seem to have good insticts for this.
