What rejection reason was given ?
Thanks for giving us the chance to consider your image. Unfortunately, this image doesn't meet our quality standards so we can’t accept it into our collection.
The reason is always the title… this text is useless for us. This is “Quality Issues”. That's enough.
The use of filters is generally refused.
ok thanks Ralph
You should submit the photo if that meets the quality requirements. Probably everyone can apply the filters they need to get an effect similar to this if desired.
