Simple can be Good!

Hello everyone,

I had an accomplishment today, it will most likely be very insignificant to most, however for me it lifted my confidence and I wanted to share with those of you who understand that even the smallest success can put a smile on one’s face.

I submitted several images for the current assignment. Only one of the submitted images was accepted, the rest were rejected, many for the same reason of being “too simplistic”.

Well, on checking my sales this morning I found that one of the “too simplistic assignment rejections” has now sold for the fifth time and has elevated to level 2! This is my first photo that has elevated itself by sales alone and not by assignment acceptance.

So even if rejected for one function this photo has filled a need for another purpose! My sincere thanks to whomever that has found purpose for my “too simplistic” photo!

Best regards to all,

Thanks Irisangel and Mayatairy. Selling an image certainly takes the sting out of the rejection AND it is indeed a matter of perspective. Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder! :)


It is always a matter of perspective :-)
Good job! Congratulations :-)


I know what you mean, I have a few images here that were rejected somewhere else and visa versa. You can't help but smile a little when it sells a few times, makes the rejection a little easier to handle. Very nice image! Congratulations.


Hey, thanks Brad! And good luck to you on your assignment photo as well. cheers! :)


Congrats on the level 2 AND your assignment photo!
