Hi. I'm somewhat new to the upload process here. I currently have 5 photos in the database, 1 HQ and 4 others from years before the site upped its standards, so needless to say they are way below todays strict standards. Now I uploaded 16 photos about three weeks. These were scanned by a regular contributor to the database who has almost 400 photos in the database. So my chances of getting these shot accepted were good right? Wrong. All 16 didn't make the cut, the reasoning being that they were of "low quality".
So I retouched them and submitted 4 (I didn't feel like doing all of them in one sitting and then remembered the new queue rules so I left it at 4). Today 2 of those were screened and rejected.
What is wrong with these pictures that makes them "low quality" and what can I do to improve them?
Here they are:
Thanks in advance for your help.
