Backgrounds and textures

It has been harder that I thought to upload background or texture pictures.

Among the three picture that I submitted, only this one is approved. The others has been rejected with reason. I must admit that they are no good at all on the edge etc..

Only this nylon texture has been approved. I feel like, there is some room for my texture. I have to digest first the given reasons of the rejections.

I will glad to have tips from you to improve my uploads. Because of the rejections, my A/R ratio dropped dramatically ;) this month.

I hope to be able to upload more later.

Have a nice day to all of you.

Nice post and I'm sorry with your AR ratio.
I'm learning with backgrounds too. At first i was using my 28-135 lens but the corner to corner sharpness is terrible and then i was using 100mm macro lens and it has a good corner to corner sharpness. Some images were got accepted, some don't :(
Here are two backgrounds that just accepted.
   Bamboo matting background.   
   Batik background.

#1 I love this image. It is unusual and you did a great job.

I get a lot of rejections on my backgrounds but I think it is worth the effort. Even if just to master something new. Keep at it. I fine oddly, that the ones I get accepted are the random things I find out in nature rather than the ones I try and capture in the studio.

I shoot in giant RAW files and then I cut away everything corner to corner that isn't perfect. Sometimes I end up with a smaller file than I would like, especially if it was a hand held image,but if it is acceptable it is better than rejection!

Don't give up. You have the right idea!
