Hi,

while nothing has changed to my shooting style, studio setup, lights, keywording, editing out of the dark got 9 out of batch of 15 and 8 out of batch of 10 rejected for : Composition--Limited commercial value due to framing, cropping, and/or composition.

Below some excamples from those approved on another site :









I'm puzzled... anyone else noticing same rejects lately.?.

no reason those should be LCV.

No offence taken, but what do you mean with "cheesy".....?...

Take a look at what SS accepts and one might think that cheesy and oversaturated should be two new category choices for them. I don't know why they'd think these don't have commercial value. I don't think the shots of the woman on the leopard print rug would sell as well as the guy with his shirt off, but I'd definitely have approved them (assuming the technical stuff was OK at 100%)

While I agree that these are technically superior images that should have been accepted, I think two of the shots ('worker woman' and 'guy with champagne') contain awkward elements that may limit their appeal.

FWIW, I've been bitten by the LCV bug, too. Whatever...

I'll put my hand in fire for the technical stuff... you can always check at fotolia portfolio with zoom function.

Hi,

After contacting support I got a go to resubmit them, apparently there was no model release attached to the pictures.

Would have been nice to tell you the reason in the first place?  :(

My most common rejection this month is "we have too many photos like that already" which means I'm basically dull, unoriginal and still wet behind the ears. They are right!  ;)

You've always had sharp well lighted photos.
