A Hard Learned Lesson
The main benefit I have found in these agencies is the learning perspective, the challenge, and getting used to rejections without "dropping the ball"
This week, I learned the hard way that working tired or in a rush can dramatically cost you a decreased approval ratio.
I had my summer holidays in Cuba and brought some pics that I thought would be a hit. I also had learned new techniques in Photoshop so I mainly focused on them. I worked in a rush, almost as if my time were limited and as a result, I made two silly mistakes:
1) I did not properly clean the background from spots and dust.
2) The word "isolated" slipped into the keywords without being true.
The great majority was rejected.
The moral I would like to share is that never take this work lightly or think that a pic deserves being approved on its own. Take time to take care of details and above all, never work tired or in a rush. Let the work aside two or three days and re-inspect it before submitting.
