Acceptance ratio

Today I have studied my statistics area and I have found that October was the 5th month with 100 % acceptance of my uploaded images. The same situation was in January, March, July and August. Apart June, when I got accepted just 66 percent of my uploaded images, also the other months were good - always over 90 %.

As for acceptance ratio, June was a strange month for me. My monthly aploaded average is: 37 images. In June I have uploaed only 14 images and almost half of them was refused. I think summer time made my mind too restful :-)

Now my acceptance ratio is 82,2 %. I am pleased of this because I must admit last year I hadn

3 - I try to be patient. This is a hard part for me:-) as when I make new images, I want to submit them at once :-) But I have seen that after awhile (at last three - five days) one can see images with "another eyes". I can find how to make still better some details, if I continue to like composition, saturation etc.

Have all a wonderful November!

Very interesting blog, I definitely agree it's very important to be selective and not jam the system with too many identical shots.

This article makes a wonderful point, that I think many microstockers simply ignore (to the detriment of the industry AND fellow contributors) - and that is that it is much smarter to simply pick the best image or two from a series and contribute that. So many shooters take 12 shots of essentially the same thing and jam them through quality control. It just clogs up the image base. No wonder rejections are up - I feel sorry for the reviewers who have to cull through so many similar pictures. Nice blog!
