There are photos of the same benchess on their website without property release. I checked before submitting the photo.

this is why is not really worth bothering to chase, reviewers do what they want and the subject is already covered. your time is probably better used taking more images

Alamy reviewers don't check content: you don't indicate about releases until after acceptance.

Alamy is a bit out of dated on the market , they trying hard , but for example they didnt accept my videos for as to be contributor , then i found out they are acually selling my footage via clipdealer for 5x times more than actually its availible on clipdealer, in the past there were asking photographers to upscale digitally images so they look more pro for the buyers,  now when you sending a bunch of images for acceptance they will accept the whole bunch or refuse the all of them , like , taking a piss on the detail.  The question is why they were on the top tier in the microstock pool for few months , perhaps they are members of forums and spamming or , couple of contributors who still just have 100 000 of images on Alamy and 1 000 on other stocks voted and moved the pool ,  time waisters for me if they wont change !

It was just one month and it was because a poster here went over there and asked Alamy posters who don't usually come over here to post their good sales. We don't even know if people were posting their gross income, which is what most people report over there (of those few who report).
