heres what my email said:
"These photo(s) have a "soft" appearance. This does not mean they are
blurry or out of focus, but that they need an extra kick of sharpness."
and i said it got denied for sharpness meaning that it wasnt sharp enough, sorry bad communication there. ill sharpen it some more and hopefully itll make it through this time, as for it being over exposed id disagree with you there, its a little on the high side but not over.
Just like what Aitek said, I think it's probably the rejection reasons have been changed to be without 'NOA', because I just checked the reasons for all shots in my 'Rejected Photos' page, and found all reasons had no NOA any longer. If a shot has two or more reasons, there might be a space in between. E.g., one of my shot was given "Reject reason: personal angle".
I do not know if this is the final stage as Gary meant. However, at least this is what I observed!
