Now that I have finally been accepted after two years and many attempts, I have several images that were rejected as part of a batch that failed to generate 7 images acceptable in the batch.  If I want to resubmit the images that have no stated reason for rejection except that they were part of a batch, what should I say in the Reviewer's block?  Also would it be a good idea or should I just forget them?

I would hold onto them for now. After you get a feel for what is accepted and what is not, phase them in after careful review of each image. They may just have not marked them because you failed the first 4 in the queue and they just went no further. If they are unflagged without a reason, many assume that they would pass, but this is not necessarily always true.

Good luck - you will have fun there.

I would agree.  Don't assume anything.  In the beginning submit images that you feel really good about.  You can put one or two images from the rejected batch in batches over the next few weeks or months.   Look at other peoples portfolios and pay attention the the upload dates where available.  Only teach yourself from the newer images you find.  I say this because there are a couple hundred thousand images in IS form the early days that would NEVER be accepted today.

Always look at your images at 100% or even 200% for noise and artifacts.  SS doesn't like noise.  They aren't as hard as IS when it comes to isolation but you still need to pay close attention to the details.  If you do that you will get your uploaded images accepted.  Don't worry too much about rejections and never take it personal.  I made that mistake in the beginning and almost quit.  Don't get mad at rejections, just repair the image if you can and re-submit it.  If you can't fix it in PS, you may want to re-shoot it before uploading it again.

I hope this helps and good luck to you!

Thanks Snurder and Cshack! I sort of thought along those lines.  I'm glad to hear that they are not as bad as iS when it comes to isolations.

With iS, I do not use the term "Isolate" or "Over white", because that seems to be like waiving a red cape in front of an angry bull! ::)  I still haven't gotten one osolation past iS.  May be they just don't want them.
