So have had a couple of “Motive Only” rejections recently. And have had to appeal them, as I want to find out why?
First one was rejected again, “Motive Only”, so I had to use the “Photography Feedback forum” to find out why. And thankfully a couple of screeners took the time to tell me why, so I understood why that shot was rejected.
The second one today was rejected for “Motive Only” and again I appealed, asking why? And the Head Screener thankfully told me what the issue was. (I have re-cropped and uploaded if you want to have a look?)
So my suggestion is, if a photo is rejected for Motive. And I mean Motive Only. Then perhaps to help us photographers who are trying something different/creative, the screeners could tell us my? The personal comments make a big difference to the rejection. (Well for me anyway), to understand why they have been rejected.
Just to clarify I don’t have an issue with the rejections (once I understand why). I’m still very green at this and want to improve my photography/editing skills. So welcome rejection’s. Rejections with personal comments always help.
Just an idea.
