You know your an Experienced stock Photographer when:

1. Getting plethora of DL's in one day does not excite you.
2. Getting an images rejected is like a mosquito bite. Annoying but no big deal.
3. When you stop posting and reading "Show us your...." type posts.
4. When you stop going back to the site 20 times a day to see if you made anymore sales.
5. You stopped Asking for advice, or help on the forums and start reading books instead.
6. When you dump your PAS camera and buy a Canon or NIkon DSLR.
7. If your able to hold off and get a pay out only once a month.
8. If you consistently get payouts every single month.
9. Your uploading images on a consistent basis.
10. Your familiar with and know who "The MIZ" is

I'm 5/10. I don't pass the test I think. Hopefully you put "you know who The Miz is". That get me 1 more point.

It's funny to have test like in the female magasine :P

for me is #1. It occurred to me that #11 should be added: when every object in the universe is not only stock suitable, but was created for that sole purpose.

1.  I don't get excited unless I have a big BME.
2.  Rejections don't bother me.  They have become quite rare on all sites except istock.  Definitely don't get annoyed like I used to.
7.  Perhaps the real experienced stock photographers have to withdraw more than once a month to keep under the $10,000 withdrawal limit.

When you stop getting excited about every single in-action, and only start saving the big ones.  :)

11. When they give you a rejection, you wait one week and resubmit the same image.

"11. When they give you a rejection, you wait one week and resubmit the same image."

How about fixing what's wrong with it first, and then re-submitting it immediately!?
That way you don't have to wait a week.

What about the "we're not looking for this type of image" rejection?  Or "too many similars"?

Adelaide

Time to move on. It's not productive to spend any time in the past. Make more images.
Rejected images like you mention are history.
