I'm not sure if just asking "good or bad" is the answer to your question.
In micro stock , or just stock in general, you are working with human beings. some reviewers are reasonable, some are totally anal .no names to be  mentioned, as we know them already.
After one year in stock , coming in a few months, I learn very slowly not to take one site's review as a blanket review. Your images are accepte based on whether that site sells these types of images. Also, if they have too many, they don't anymore. Not if none are selling. Even if you see many have good sales, you don't know if they've reach a saturation point.
So instead of worrying over one reviewer's decision. I suggest you just upload them to another site and go back to make some more new images. AND stop checking your rejections. It's counterproductive.

Thanks to all for the good advice....and thank you "whitechild" for standing up for me.
Donding - how well are these selling at the sites that accepted them?
The last two were uploaded to all the other sites in September of 2008...The longhorn which is the last one has sold 18 times...I agree with you all on it...I was surprised it has sold that much because out of all of them I feel it is the worst image.
As for the 5th image, the spray paint was also uploaded in September of 2008 and it has sold 32 times.
 The first three just got on the site they are on and pending on the rest of them. The monkey was just uploaded at the end of the month last month. It was taken the same time all the other animal shots were taken.
 I was wondering how do you take a shot of a animal..especially wild animals with out traveling to a zoo without it looking like they did?? There was one of two Zebra's that was taken the same time as the other ones and Fotolia accepted it.

aw, donding ! why did you go and give away that secret !!! now everyone will only be saying nice things to you  ;D
no, seriously, that's the beauty of this forum. you can be male or female and let everyone think you are the other.
even with whitechild, i think he too could be female, as he has the same haircut as Sinead OConnors  ;D

Sorry to say "GUYS" but it's hard to offend you're Fotolia. And no you didn't offend me "Whitechild".
Someone on Fotolia pointed out some problems with some of them..although they weren't rejected because of that..but they said if I had a laptop computor...which I have turn the monitor as far back as I could and I would notice some stray area's of isolation. I only saw it on one of them, but what he said I think is a good from now on I'll angle my monitor back when I get done isolating to make sure it is looking right.
I've already pretty much decided to leave Fotolia. I know I won't be uploading to them any more. My photos sell on the other Big 6 whereas Fotolia doesn't do me any good but waste my time.
