I am confused about the acceptance and rejection process.

Hi all, I am confused about the selection and/or rejection process. My image of a vintage strip of photo negative showing 4 frames was accepted.

Contact print frames 33-36.jpg

 

However a similar image showing 12 frames was rejected.

 

Contact print 12-frames.jpg

The reason given was "Technical Issues" although both images have the exactly the same resolution. While the same section of strip numbers 33 to 36 are similar, I believe the 2 files look different enough to satisfy different creative needs.

 

Maybe the images were judged by different people?

Hi Jose,

Your photos are nice. I would suggest you make the rejected image a little warmer and re-upload. I am not able to identify any other reason for rejection. 

 

Also please note similar rejection is usually so specified, and is different from technical issue.

 

Best wishes

JG

Thank you JG, I will try your suggestion. I did not know that rejected submissions can be reuploaded. I appreciate your response!

Thanks for replying ricky336 but the portion you encircled is part of 4 strips of vintage negatives that were accepted. I surmise that their selection process is not really consistent since they deal with art that is subjective. I do appreciate your response!
