Ok, Peter, you are right. My mistake....It is not yet rejected, it's 'brother picture' (the same but cropped tighter) was. However there are no more pictures of me in the uploading queue... So where this one went, I don't know...
My other 9V-SVD picture (that I thought was actually better, but this comment will also aplly for this picture) had this comment:
The image quality of this photo is low. This may be the result of several
perceived problems happening simultaneously, such as grain, blur, lighting,
contrast or color defects, which would lead us to believe that a fresh scan
would be necessary, rather than a simple adjustment to the uploaded file.
My mistake if I said it was rejected. Sorry...
I'm now curious what'll happen to this one...
