How to shoot pictures of the black background?

I uploaded many pictures of the black background. But all of them be rejected. The reason for all: Poor lighting setup, poor contrast or incorrect exposure.

I browse the existing picture, found many photos with black background. For example:

I observed the rejected photo, normal exposure. If i changed to a white background, these photos should be acceptance ratio more than 50%. For example, I've taken photos of a white background.

How to shoot pictures of the black background? What kind of black background pictures that can be accepted?

Hi, I often shoot on black paper background, no problem.
But get a lot of rejections from night scenes - for incorrect explosure or noise which I can't see on my screen. Probably depends on editor's taste or on the amount of dark pictures in database.
