Never give up!

On logging in today I was impressed to find that my latest sale was of this image.

What made me impressed was that this is one of my most recently uploaded images, has only 32 views and sold for $4.32, and no that is not unusual, what is though, is that this image was initially refused due to lighting etc...I was surprised as I thought it was perfectly lit, and just thought oh well, they just did not like the image and despondently ignored to rectify the image. But for some reason I believed that this image had sales ability and after a day or so decided to revisit photoshop and try rectify the cause of refusal. After some dodging and burning and other steps to rectify the image I resubmitted the image and it was accepted. I was happy because as I said I knew the image had potential (and the quick sale justifies this), just goes to show, if you have an image you believe in, never give up.

Excellent photo. Yep, if you believe in an image that has been rejected then listen to the advice and act on it.

One of my nine most popular image was initially not accepted by DT. After some time I resubmitted it again, it was acceped and sold. I have organised a folder with my not accepted images and sometimes I have a look there...

Good lesson...After the initial "what?? how could they...", you have the opportunity to fix - unless its the dreaded "its not what we are looking for"

Hi Rita, I am not sure what the refusal reason was for your image, however, if it was one that could be fixed (lighting etc) then go back and look at the image again, see what the reviewer sees and if possible fix it, thats what I did.

I have a very similar photo of yours and it was refused several times. I think it has sale ability but Dt think not. I am so happy for you, and it shows us to never ever give up if you belive in something. :)
