My first WP Theme was rejected second time with the same feedback:
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.
You might consider improving your design with more unique features and graphics in order for it to stand out among other marketplace items. However, a unique design will be a key factor for approval.
After first rejection I redesign this theme completely (in my opinion).
Please help me make this theme awesome, usefull and accepted!

I’m sorry that no one has been in touch with you regarding this matter.
There were a couple of things I noticed. Firstly, the header image does not stretch out far enough for someone using a large screen. There is just a white gap to the side of it.
Also, consider changing the layout slightly, as there are a lot of themes out there which have a slider, then some features, and then a four section widgetised area.
Once you’ve sorted these things, you’re theme will stand a better chance of being accepted.
Thanks for your reply, I really appreciate! I’ll try to make the changes that you suggested
As a building block I actually really like this. I have been working on designing a site for a client similar in structure to this and have a few ideas for you so will email them later today as there are a few that may help make it stand out a little.
