Hi all.  I have been dipping my water deeper and deeper into the microstock world and thought I had a few things figured out.  Such as:  it took me forever to get just 2 photos accepted on istock.  But BigStock, then fotolia, then StockXpert then DT ans 123RF all accepted me.  It was clear sailing as I recognized my "loser" photos and slowly started to upload my meager portfolio.  Then BigStock started on a rejection kick (or so it seemed to me).  For a while I had no trouble getting things accepted at fotolia, StockXpert and 123RF with a little trouble at DT, still not getting very far with IS. 
Now things have changed yet again..BigStock has stopped rejecting me, IS is accepting my work and it's DT that is doing the rejecting.
Is this something that others have noticed??  Dose everyone who uploads to multiple sites find a pattern?  I want to stay with multiple sites until I find a style that is "me" and meshes well with a site  as proven by acceptance and sales.

I haven't observed changes in acceptance patterns.  The common problem is normally one image being accepted in one site and not in another, but sometimes you can reverse that.  IS is the pickiest with me, though sometimes they surprise me by accepting an image that I thought they would reject.

Well although my numbers are small so far it is obvious that by on IS I have the largest number of sales when compared to photos in the portfolio.  This has me thinking that their acceptance policies reflect what is selling rather than only being technically good.   One thing I'm pleased with is that very fewof my rejections, across all of them, are for technical reasons.  Therefore I am learning from past mistakes.
