  1. The buyers/customers want sharp images because that is just what they want. Not every photo, no matter how nice, is good for stock.
  2. They don't go back and exhaustively re-screen old or missed contravening shots. But any artwork that might be under copyright is a problem now
  3. It's a Russian SMENA -- recognizable with logo or not https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smena_(camera)#/media/File:Lomo_smena_8m.jpg If I can tell that, it's not generic enough
  4. For stock the best focus has to be on the most interesting thing in the shot, which is not the shrub
  5. Just call it and ask to be put through to Daniella. She corresponded with you so it is reasonable to call as a way of checking authenticity/ And if it is fake she would probably like to be told about that too. If the person answering the phone asks what it is about just saying you are following up on an inquiry she sent to you by email. Be prepared to breifly explain it to her voicemail is she is out and don't forget to leave a return number
  6. Call SS head office but do it promptly -- if it is real you don;t want to miss out
  7. It is always better to read the rules than look at what pictures have been approved. Some may predate rule changes and others juts slipped through.
  8. The reviewers tend to want the main subject in focus regardless of what the photographer wanted. it is what it is.
  9. If it causes complaints, it will get added to the list of forbidden things. SS does try to comply with the law but on a risk/complaint basis.
  10. The odds are something in the pic was on the non-licensable list, which generally means the rights hold is litigious and SS does not want to take any chances.
  11. You are using a narrow field of focus, the reviewers don't like this for stock. The insects you could debate but --- Yes you need to focus on the eyes but have a dog picture that is not a close up and where it's nose is blurry... not very useful for stock. In any case, narrow focus with a lot of foreground blurry is going to get rejected more often than not
  12. Lifting other contributors work dozens of times is the contributors problem whether they slip it by the reviewers or not. Knowing you can't sell derivative works is a pretty basic competency and exposed SS to lawsuits they would lose. OP can still use all the other platforms. He can still email and request being reinstated and explain how he will not repeat that mistake.. Arguing it is not a mistake and it is not his problem to avoid but SS's to catch him it is the opposite of what will work in that conversation. If I was OP I would delete those posts before making the attempt.
  13. They will remove them as they come up in whatever process caught your photos.
  14. These are very interesting but not stock types of images
