Did anyone facing SS keep rejecting your photo recently?

The last weeks everything that i uploaded was rejected, for the wel known stupid reasons like focus for a super sharp photo or noise (while the image is taken at 100 iso).


Now i gona wait for a week and then upload a whole batch instead 2 or 3 photo's a day

Has anyone similar experiences last weeks?
And is the something changed?

I don't have a problem with rejections except on Wirestock. They hit me for "composition"
So I just ignore them and move on.

I think Shutterstock uses an AI for it's initial culling and anything that looks a bit strange gets kicked out.
Sandstorms are rejected for grain. Yep, that's the stupid AI not knowing sand from noise.
The sharply in focus part of the image needs to be in the center of the image else the AI might not find it.
Stock is stock and not art, so you just have to play the game.

For Real

often that means horizon is 1 deg off, or, worse a bldg doesnt have all vertical lines.

Title: "My photos keep rejecting my photo"

If your own photos start to keep rejecting your other photo, then there is definitely something wrong with with your other photo to begin with :)

Have a nice weekend!
