I don't even have to post, to agree with you. I'm more surprised some days at what they take of mine? (no not the racing that I'm extremely selective and critically edited...) others, like a slice of toast on a plate. Now watch I'll never have a food photo accepted again?  ;)

Taking complaining to new levels, "what? That image of mine shouldn't have been accepted". Well folks, why does someone submit it then? I can answer. Marginal and I thought maybe unique enough to make a sale. Many years ago. Now it's sub-standard.

The strange thing is that when folks show actual examples of what is rejected the majority of contributors usually agree with the reviewer

Well, I know that my pictures are not the best for microstock, because I'm a photojournalist, most part of my shot are without release, and this means that I upload marginal shot from my work. The fact is that I cannot understand why pictures that are refused for three or four times, when, at last, accepted, become best sellers. There is - for my way - a discrepancy between what is accepted (50 pictures of a nurse wearing gloves, i.e.) and what the customer buy. But I'm not complaining: is part of this game and I accept it.
