Ambiguous turn down
photos: I recently applied to be a member of sportsshooter.com. It's a site where photo pros who mainly shoot sports can meet, network and such. Well turns out they don't like my pics and not specifically one or the other. The response was:
Technical Quality Of Images
Quality reasons include: Images are overly compressed; images are improperly
toned (too flat, too contrasty, have color balance problems, etc); images
are too dark/light. This also includes images that have been noticeably
retouched in Photoshop (backgrounds removed, the scene changed, 'special
effects' added, etc.)

The email said that I could resubmit within 48hrs. After that, my initial request would be deleted and I would have to start from scratch again and get someone to sponsor me again - the latter not being an issue luckily.

Since I don't know which image or images of the nine I submitted was at issue, or was done up too much, too little, cropped, retouched or too contrasty, I have no where to start. It is like The Price is Right. You want all the grocery items to add up to $8.67 or less. You can add and remove all the items you want, but there are only so many combinations that will work. And until get that combination right you can't win. In fact, since I know nothing about what they nitpicked over, it is tougher. I can guess what a can of soup costs... but this? M'eh. It's winter and there are no sports to shoot right now. And heck I prefer models anyway. :)

Carpe Diem
