Usually I accept rejections without a word and only learning from them for the next time. But one rejection I couldn't accept and send a message to the editors "photo was rejected for "Image is out of focus or too much of the subject is out of focus (DOF too shallow or DOF not justified) / Image is shaken. Use a faster speed or a tripod. Please check the files at 100% zoom before submitting them. "
The image is not out of focus and the DOF is not shallow I did not used fast shutter to emphasize the train speed I think the rejection is not right.
Please check again the rejection".
As a result I got a mail from the editors to upload the picture again and after few days it was accepted and after two more weeks it was sold.
So my advices to you, if you are sure that your picture is picture with potential for sales do not hesitate to ask for second opinion.
