Oh well. Everyone feels I need to chill. But I'm not feeling like it right now. This is too much fun. :)
Thanks though. I don't stress out. Just doing what I love.

"Then I uploaded two files which were rejected anyway for being too simplistic. It was VERY annoying and discouraging because I had spent 3 days creating that illustration. It was a very detailed one." - To be honest, I don't believe that they have real people moderating the submissions, there has got to be a machine doing the job... How many times have we all been in that situation?? Personally had already hundreds of images (both photos and illustrations) submited that had great quality and were rejected for some stupid reason. Now, the thing is, they could be right about it if those same photos/illustrations wouldn't be selling good on other stock photography web sites...

"Who am I to even try to submit for an assignment?" - That's not even a question you shoulb be asking...

Don't let the others put you down for what you enjoy doing! You're not doing anything wrong!! Keep on going, AND REMEMBER: It's not about the camera you have, but the skills you have...

Well, it does matter what camera I have. Mainly because poor contrast/details and bad focusing abilities prevent good images being shot even if the photographer is skilled. Sometimes gear is very necessary. For example I have not been able to shoot a hummingbird in flight even though I have 10-20 of them in my garden all day.
Reason? I can't get enough shutter speed. If I get a higher ISO, noise levels rise to unacceptable. Focus acquiring takes more than a second. So I can't shoot what I see all day.
Very frustrating.
