The typography is just awful and barely legible.
Just not good enough. Design feels boring, typography and spacing need work and it lacks any hierarchy.
No idea, but they rejected because it was not good enough, not because of the photo.
Make the changes then post it up again, otherwise you stand to just get replies stating stuff that has already been mentioned.
It’s not the photo, read the rejection email:
“The overall quality of your submission does not meet our aesthetic and technical requirements and will need to be improved before being resubmitted. Unfortunately we’re not able to provide more specific feedback for your submission at this time.”
It’s not good enough, and without a link how can anybody help?
This particular style has literally been done a 1000 times and done much better than yours.
You need to create something more unique. In addition, your spacing and typography are poor.
As said, feels unfinished, more like a mock, you have a long way to go.
This doesn’t stand a chance sorry.
The design is bad, the typography is barely legible, the spacing is inconsistent and you have a complete lack of hierarchy.
Not even close to the current standard.
The typography is poor, the spacing is off it has a complete lack of design and the animations are too slow and tacky.
You need to spend more time learning design rather than trying to submit themes.
Exactly the same as the last time you posted this, nowhere near the current standard.
I really think you should step back from submitting themes and actually spend some more time learning and refining, you seem to be rushing trying to get items approved.
