Hi All,I have spent lots of time (more than a month) to design my template but it got rejected 2 times. It is really discouraging and they have not provided any explanation. Does anyone know why this is happening? I appreciate any feedback. You can see the home preview here: http://edesigngroupus.com/projects/VIPLux/home.jpg

I understand you have spent lots of time and effort on designing the template. But there are lots of rooms for improvements. The main slider image doesn’t fit. The gray background is killing the design. Text inside the slider has weird composition and inconsistent spacing between the elements. Maybe remove the last line (“Use it for any business…”) and just keep the two? Blue border right below the slider and the blue box behind “Do you like this template? ...” paragraph creates dissonance. It would look better without the blue border. The headings with black backgrounds are visually too strong, not to mention the inconsistent horizontal/vertical padding (more horizontal padding than vertical). Try it without the black background. Also, the drop shadows below the images are too much. Using more than two levels of drop shadows is almost always a distraction. Also, keep the number of sponsors to 3~4 and try increasing the size of the logos. It’s too cramped in right now. Use arrows that do not stand out as much as right now, possibly a smaller size. The icons next to the headings in footer is too big, misaligned, and requires more spacing on the right. Overall, give more spacing to your elements to let them breathe. I kept on throwing out critiques, but keep up the good work
Thank you. I do appreciate your reply. I will try your suggestions but except paddings, the other stuff are usually more personal choice . I will revise this again and hopefully this time it gets approved. Thanks again for your help and great feedback.
Yes. Keep up the good work and hope to see the item out here soon!
Agree with subwaymatch feedback + maybe you need to have a more clear/consistent/bold graphical concept, especially for PSD category. If you worked that long on the template, then best advice would be to stop for a while, doing something else, then come back to it with fresh eyes.

Thank you Appreciate your help. I really tried to focus on every possible detail but it seems like I missed a few I agree with you on stopping to work on it for a while. Maybe I start another template, who knows. Thanks though.
