The joys and frustrations of uploading to a.net are legend.
Every time I upload a batch of shots and have most accepted, I start to think "This is actually not that hard. What are all these people with their rejection complaints on about?"
I have more than half of a batch rejected and my acceptance ratio heads south (with the new upload limits, it's actually way south).
For me, this is the bitter-sweet truth of uploading here. I fluctuate between thinking I'm a decent aviation photographer and a good user of Photoshop, to wondering why I even have a camera and that I really suck at Photoshop.
I'm not bitching at anyone about anything, just making my feelings known (in case you didn't guess, I'm on a down cycle!) I guess the acid test is - will I continue to upload to a.net? You bet, I love it here!
JeffM, You contribute a lot to this forum, and I sincerely thank you for that. Unfortunately, you do also contribute nearly as many negatively sarcastic posts as you do positive ones.
I was trying to provide some balance to the seemingly never-ending "Why was this shot rejected, it's my best ever." type threads. I clearly stated that I wasn't bitching about my rejections, just the ups and downs of getting a high proportion accepted, followed by a high proportion rejected.
I have managed to get nearly 600 shots accepted here, so clearly I can sometimes do something right. I don't believe you'll find a single "bitching thread" that I've started complaining about any rejections I've ever received.
You are, of course, entitled to your opinion. In this instance I believe you've missed my point. But what the hell, this is only the Internet.

Rejections are part and parcel of what is...A.net. I mainly use it as an online library, where I can link my own work, try to sell a pic or two in the process or just give others an opportunity to have a peek at my photos. A.net is, in the most part, a pretty good site, meeting point and forum.
