Okay, i would like to agree with JMOD 's last post. As far as myself, I think this is the best airline site of any kind that exists (in my opinion) and its the only one i regularly check.
Thus the drive to have "My" photos (general term)accepted by such a highly respected site is one that can easily become an obsession for many. However amatuers like myself will cope with inevitable rejection in different ways.
Obviously everyone is partial to thier own work, i know that I am; but this is assured, besides, you spend the money for camera equip. film, you take a few hours or even a day out snapping picture after picture, tirelessly trying to find the perfect angle, light, background and etc. So after all this work, you develop your pics, your proud of them! you want to show the world, you upload them to a site like this and they get rejected... HMM.. lets blame the people who rejected the photos...(??)
OKay, here is my point. I have uploaded a lot of pics, only a few have been accepted, and, like many of you I didnt think they were my better pictures. So i posted some of my rejected pics trying to get advice (see "okay my turn to ask advice")
This is how I deal with rejection and i think many of you should also. when i have a photo rejected, i use it as a way to get BETTER!!
THINK ABOUT THIS!! if the admin. accepted all the "just decent" pics, people like me would have no reason to PrAcTiCe our hobby and strive to become better photographers. As for myself, i know for a FACT that I am a better photographer because of the rejections i have received. And of course, i spend alot of time trying to get my pics accepted, like you all, and rejections drive me nuts too!!! but this isnt my web site! the admin does NOT have an obligation to accept people's average pictures just as a self-esteem boost to amatuer photographers.
OKAy, i know i went long, but like i said, everyone is partial to thier own pics, thus it is easy to miss your own mistakes, that is why if you get pics rejected, then feel free to post them here, thats what i intend to do. someone else will probably find the mistake that you missed, and you can avoid that next photo outing.
like i said, instead of worring about other people's poor pics that have been accepted and that yours didnt, get better! then go out, take some pics that instead of hoping to just slide by, you absolutly stun the photo screener, and dont give up or complain, just TRY HARDER...
