Hmm, strangely, my last batchs are being accept by SS with a good rating, and full rejected by 123RF, Fotolia. IS is more likely 50% rejected.

For that reason i still prefer keep my work with more than one agency, because i never know which one will want a particular batch.

Having not uploaded for a while I was pleasantly surprised that most of my last batch made it through - after reading this thread I fully expected 100% rejection.  Uploading at the weekend seems to be the way to go :)

This is really becoming a pain in the ass, I've had my last series accepted elsewhere but got them all accept one rejected twice today at SS  :-X

i get mass rejections and then resubmit with minor adjustments and usually have success.  i think SS problem is huge inconsistencies with their reviewers.  it is a pain in the ass; doing double the work to get an image through.   what irks me most is i have several images that i've been persistent about getting in my port so i kept submitting until they were accepted and they happen to be my best sellers.  soooo what.  would be nice to think the reviewers had a better eye then me, just a beginner but apparently in all cases they dont.

That's exactly what I'm gonna do with this batch, I'm gonna keep them sending over and over a few times a day until all get accepted. I really don't care, I know they are the best healthy lifestyle photos I've ever made and I can really be stubborn. They're gonna have so much more work because of that.

I submitted a batch of images where the important part of the image had a carefully placed spotlight. The rest of the image was also lit, so nothing was too black. 100% rejected for "Poor Lighting--Poor or uneven lighting, or shadows. White balance may be incorrect."

Got the same rejection over and over for natural, "sunset" lighting, really nice warm colors and it was more or less evenly lit as well (not even close enough to being really uneven). Notes to editors didn't help, I wonder if the system is automated, looks like nobody reads them (at least they could redirect those to real ppl if that's the case)

I think SS is accepting only bright photos, and that's pretty discouraging!

On the other hand, they are clearly aren't noticing that the same images are being submitted again, if they do will they not take some form of action?

Dunno, but I sure won't be denied from having photos online that are meeting ALL of their technical requirements and are also good (composition, concept, model etc). I mean it's absurd, they got accepted at ALL of the other agencies,  only IS rejected 2/14, other agencies accepted the whole series.
