Hi all!

My first HTML template on theme forest has been rejected because of low design quality. Here is what they say:
Your template does not provide a unique enough design with the necessary design quality, features and options to compete in the marketplace at this time. As higher quality templates become available in the marketplace, approval requirements will increase to maintain appropriate marketplace quality.
And here is how my template looks: http://www.asvada.com/themes/applum/preview There are onload animations for each section also, they are disabled right now.

Can anybody help me with an advice of how to improve this template so it will be approved by theme forest?

Also, this template includes documentation, layered PSD, ajax+php contact form, subscription script, the code is commented, html is W3C valid, this template has 8 color schemes, even placeholders are working in IE!

Thanks a lot, Sergei.

The design is good but it lacks uniqueness. Also add more features like different sliders, video etc.
