not as smooth as we hoped :)

posted on 29th of october, 2010

First of all thank you so much for the nice comments, it means a lot to us.

Got our first rejections this week (not 1 but 7...ouch), didn’t feel that good, but taught us a lesson, that we have to do a better job. So, that’s what we are going to do…to submit pictures that will be approved.

This past week we have shot a lot of pictures, also brought in a new model, a male model. That was such a fun night for all of us! Not that we are only working but we just have fun with it! We think its important to have fun with every shoot we have.

Hope you have a wonderful Halloween!
Maiu & Rob

Just keep up the good work, it soon gets easier as you get to know what works and what does not. The other thing to watch out for is uploading too many from the same series at the same time. This can lead to say 60% of the series being rejected regardless of quality, this can even mean your fav shots from the series being rejected. I have had my best month for acceptances this month with 119 acceped and a acceptance ratio over 76%. Good luck and keep up the good work, great images :-)

true, its not possible to submit same pictures again and again, you must invent new techniques and some interesting topics

I have had a battering myself in trying to reach a 1000 images quickly. Its getting more difficult because editors want images which exceed in technical quality those already on site ! Good luck. David.
