Thanks all for review and suggestions.  SS rejected the image for "out-of-focus/too soft" and "over-use".  I agree there is motion blur due to the grass and foliage blowing in the breeze.  I think I can fix the over-use issue but I can't fix the focus without re-shooting at a faster shutter speed to freeze the grass and foliage.  Any other ideas?   I'm also submitting the image to other sites to see what they say. Maybe I'll just enter the image in the contest at the county fair this summer and hope for a ribbon.  Any other ideas?

Shame, Sorry. You keep shooting like that. Just watch the shutter spd Outdoors. There are much better and Important Markets anyway . The subject is sharp.

Thanks - this was a good learning experience.  In hindsight, I wish I'd increased the ISO to 1600 and shutter speed to 1/160s.  It would have been a good test for the high ISO capability of the camera.

You either need to freeze the action of the grass or have the movement exaggerated. In this case I would have gone for the exaggeration by lowering the ISO and stopping down as much as possible in order to get a longer shutter speed. Of course you would have needed a tripod too.

Thanks for the idea, Mike.  In this case, I was already at f/22 and ISO 100.  Shutter speed was 1/10sec.  I would have needed to add a filter to get a longer shutter speed but it didn't occur to me to do that.

For what its worth I my subjective opinion is that I really like the image. Sorry for the rejection but that happens. Just shrug it off.

Thanks.  Another microstock site accepted it.  Now we'll see if anyone likes it enough to buy it.

Seems the better something is...The closer they Look. theres stuff getting in thats embarrassing.

It does seem to be a bit of a crapshoot sometimes.  My guess is they have a high turnover of reviewers and that leads to inconsistent reviews.
