Regarding waiting for your pictures to be reviewed, I forgot to mention that you probably noticed over the weekend time freezes for the pending process the countdown of pending time will start again monday morning.. nothing happens on weekends. x
Hi, I did exactly the same a few weeks ago when I joined, I had some old pictures from an old camera that I took many years ago and I thought they looked fine but the quality of the camera was just not up to it. so all were rejected. I am now building my acceptance ratio up using the a DSLR I bought a year ago and now have over the past few weeks 58 pictures accepted. Once you have bought a new camera and your pictures start getting accepted and you get your first download it can be very addictive even if its not your profession and just a hobby... from little acorns grow!!! you never know what it can lead to!!
