A minor milestone

posted on 25th of november, 2010

I just received notice that three more of my images have been accepted. I had originally submitted 58 images and they were all rejected for various reasons. I corrected things that were wrong with the original images and submitted 21 corrected images. Out of the 21, three were chosen. That takes my total uploads to seven. This news has lifted my spirits and I can swing into the holiday season with a renewed energy level and with more confidence in my photo producing ability. Seven online images may not seem like a lot to cheer about to a lot of people, but it means a lot to me. I Suddenly have a lot of new ideas too! Happy Holidays!

Please have a look at my Eureka... posting............ I went through the pain of rejections too and even at 1000 images on line am still getting rejections.... you have to learn from what Editors say. David.

Yes also been exactly there, learn from your rejections and in time you will laugh as you find it much easier to get your uploads on here :-)

Now fingers crossed for your first sale ;-)

i've also been there once - take on board all the information you can get and use your refused images to learn from. eventually you'll be able to tell which images are greater quality and have better chance and you'll find that your approval rate will improve. good luck :)

About me

In my photos, I try to capture the true essence of the object I\'m photographing. I have completed a course of study with the New York Institute of Photography,but I\'m still learning. I hope to greatly improve my photography skills in the future. I also plan on continual upgrades of my equipment, and on trying different techniques for achieving the look I want my pictures to have.
