I've really ruined my acceptance ratio over the last couple of months... I'm at 34% now, coming from 80% earlier this year.
It seems that I get pictures rejected for all sorts of reasons... level, dark, soft, contrast. Sometimes they come with a message from the screener enlightening me about the exact issue, most of the time, however, they don't.
So I go back to the drawing board, address the issue pointed out to me, and then get a quality rejection. Almost every single time.
Here's the last two. Help appreciated.
First "dark" now "quality" - http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...1008_20060911_MYNN_G-VGAL_SBA6.jpg
This one was rejected for "soft" - http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...0917_20060911_MYNN_G-VGAL_SBA2.jpg
When I sharpened the tail a bit more, it was rejected for "level" - I appealed that and the headscreener looking at the appeal rejected it for "quality" - because we're talking abouot a rejected appeal, I can't show it to you anymore. What really annoyed me about that appeal that it was rejected within seconds. I hit the appeal button, and loaded the queue status page - and it had already been rejected again.
