... just a bemused observation.

I submitted an image to the micros of a row of spiked fence railings, taken from a low viewpoint, silhouetted against an evening sky. Diagonal composition. Very sparse, almost zen-like, with plenty of space for copy.

Shutterstock rejected it as - " not suitable for stock."

iStock accepted it. It's gained a 5 star rating from 6 different reviewers there and has sold twice (as a small and a large) in its first week online.

Ah well ... you've got to develop a zen-like attitude in this game.   :)

Well said. It's the only thing that helps. I had a funny one from IS today: a pickup truck on a beach with a blurred (shot wide open at f/2.8 ) forest in the background. In the rejection note, the reviewer showed a cropped part of the forest, claiming "overuse of a noise reduction process/application has too severely degraded quality and removed detail".  I'm allowed to re-submit if I correct the above  :D
