Add more depth to the Backgrounds! maybe by putting shadows or make some of them more dark in places! search in the marketplace and i bet you will understans what i’m saying :) Of cource this is just an opinion :)

Hello josweb,

Just like Hotpin says: try to add more depth to the backgrounds. And another reason of the rejection could be that it isn’t very unique, please notice that there are already many backgrounds like these at GraphicRiver. Did you know that you can reply to the rejection email to ask why your file was rejected? That’s perhaps the best way to figure out what the actual reason is. It’s possible that it has to deal with the preview image or so.

Good luck! :)

Ok, many thanks indeed for taking the time to point me in the right direction. Now that you have mentioned the depth I can see it. Back to the grindstone!
