"Title must be descriptive of the subject matter and must be in English. Titles cannot contain special characters, spelling/grammar errors, or repeat words/phrases in excess,"


happens when the   location, object,etc is itself a foreign word and the reviewer doesnt recognize it as such - mostly when it's a less common language (eg, Bulgarian, Bhutanese, Hindi, are my recent examples). re-submitting usually works

lately getting 'similars' rejection for horizontal & vertical framing, even tho each a new image, not, eg, a horizontal cropped to vertical.  (someone needing a vertical  is not necessarily spending time looking for horizontals that can be cropped!)  whereas true similars often get accepted as shown by the spammy portfolios we've seen
