hahahaha...only someone of Yuri's status could get an image like this approved.  I'd definitely get rejected for blown highlights, uneven lighting and lens flare.   :o  Whenever I have a lens flare from now on I'll just add a note to the reviewer that the "cinematic" flare was intentional.  Think they'll buy it???  lol

I think pixel peeping is a little over rated sometimes. Its a nice shot, clear message, good mood. Why not accept it? Is it possible to pull off this effect in photoshop? It was obviously done on purpose. I don't see why a site should accept a technically perfect crap image over one that is flawed on purpose, but has good sales potential. Why not let people be creative? Would the buyers complain?  :-\

Matter of fact: I would be willing to trade 100 of my technically perfect crap images for that one.

Just my view.

Oh I totally agree it's a good image and should be accepted.  My point is you would probably have to have the status of Yuri (or at least a higher acceptance rate than I have) to get it accepted.

Right, I'm sure he would have much easier chance to get it accepted than you or I  :)
