As for rejections, once they notice that you have submitted something sub-standard (they normally only look at one or two photos per batch) they start to look much more closely at your work.

I do not submit sub-standard work. Other than a couple of files with the quoted chromatic aberration issues (which are probably present in 90% of every wide angle shot below 12mm, especially with zooms ) or maybe some purple fringe here or there you won`t find many issues in my work nowadays. Sometimes I even scale the files down to 6000x4000 or 5000x3333 when I am not totally happy with the sharpness or if I think the retoucher overdid something.

But even if there would be quality issues with some files. Reject it and thats it. Whats the problem?

I have more the same impression like the other people who raised their voice here regarding the subject that it is a purely subjective thing without any objective reasoning. Or simply random to limit the influx of material.

Otherwise, if I would do mistakes and this would be understandable or objectively, I would be more than happy to improve like I did in the last ten years. We are here to learn and improve, otherwise nobody can survive in this market. Professional attitude has nothing todo with ego games. And the same applies to Agencies and their contributor relations where randomness is not really advisable.
