Are images assessed by a person (who doesn't know what they're doing) or by a machine learning app that is not artificially intelligent enough for the task?
When an image has snow falling in it and it's rejected due to grain &/or artifacts then one has to wonder
I'm pretty sure it's done by an outdated AI system. 90% of my photos have been rejected on here but 95% have been accepted on another site, they are the exact same photos! I'm not wasting anymore of my time here.
I think you may be right. It's likely an AI system that isn't very intelligent. There's no good reason some of my submissions were rejected. Too bad.
