I recently received a soft reject for an image, and the reason given was that the reviewer believed it was better suited for submission to the GraphicRiver.net site. When I went to GraphicRiver.net to check it out, I found that most of the images there are just what I expected, which is graphics. The image that was rejected was a photograph of a prairie falcon. In doing a quick search on PhotoDune, I find several images of prairie falcons.

I’m not whining about this, and if it was a “hard reject”, I wouldn’t think twice about it. Rejects happen all the time and often it appears to be simply at the whim of the individual reviewer. You get over it and move on. But in this case, it doesn’t make any sense to me to refer me to a site that appears to be selling graphics when my image is clearly a photograph.

Am I missing something I should know that will help me in future submissions here?

The image that was rejected and referred to GraphicRiver is here:

My apologies. I wasn’t thinking. I referenced a link to the page that shows the soft reject, not realizing that a soft reject is only visible to me, the person who’s signed on to the account.

Here’s the image placed in a location where it can be viewed. I am only posting it so someone might be able to tell me why it should be on a site that appears to be selling graphics instead of photographs. Here’s the link now:

That’s probably a mistake by the reviewer. You may want to contact Support to get clarification. Thanks!

Thanks for the kind words Ekushey. It looks like it got some attention. The image was approved earlier tonight. I would imagine someone just pushed the wrong button on the first review. Hey, it happens!
