Hey guys. These 5 all got bad quality after some intense reviewing and editing. Granted the weather was crappy, but a LOT of grain was removed along with other noise and such. The pictures are much sharper than they were. I, personally, don't see how they are all quality. Sure, one or two may be. So here's my question.
Can anything be done about a quality rejection? And, if so, is it worth-while to re-submit these photos or will they get some other rejection like Center, Motive, Angle, etc.?
I can't be certain if you did, but I generally don't upload more than one photo per day, because they would all be screened at the same time. Based on my observations, if the screener feels that the quality of the first photo is sub-par, then there seems to be a bias that develops against the quality of all of your subsequent photos.
I don't think it's a stretch of the imagination for a screener to think that since the first photo was a no-go, then the rest aren't going to be much better since they were probably taken with the same camera and underwent the same editing technique (thereby spending less time screening them to see if there's a significant difference in quality than the first to justify an HQ rating). I don't think it's possible to reject one image for quality, then show absolutely no bias whatsoever against a subsequent image taken by the same photographer. However, I don't hold that against the screener...It's only human nature to let our first impressions affect our perceptions.
"About the only way to look at it, just a pity you are not POTUS KFLLCFII, seems as if we would all be better off."

Thanks for the tips. Will see what I can do. Are they saveable?
As far as I know, the screeners do not see who took the picture they are screening. So they screener would have no way of knowing if I'd uploaded 1 or 750 photos (even though my limit is 5). Granted, some are similar and they could have assumed, but it would be wrong for them to have such a bias, in case I happened to be at the airport with someone and they had just taken similar pictures that I had taken. I would hope that our screener's are completely unbiased, even though what you bring up does have a great deal to do with our subconscious.
I'm not sure about this last thing, but a screener chooses a certain number of photos to screen, and they may not be shown to him/her in the order they were submitted, so, if I remember correctly, some of my pictures may be separated by others from other photogs. But again, I'm not sure on the second paragraph.
I'll try your tip nevertheless. See what happens.
