Looking for help on this. I submitted three images, all rejected for: Illustration Designation -- This image must be designated as an illustration. Please upload the image and select the Illustration box before submitting.
Training issue for me. Below is one of the images. The other two are similar. These were taken with a camera, with no post processing. I rediscovered them in my older pictures. They were taken of flowers while 1) panning the camera during exposure, 2) deliberately being out of focus, 3) or both. My description was just "Blurred green and yellow background."
So, what is correct thing to do. I am thinking that the reviewer thought they were created in some way other than with a camera. Or, maybe it does not matter how, and what makes an illustration an illustration, is its content, now how it was created(?). Should I resubmit designated as an illustration? Or rather resubmit as photo, but put how it was created in the description? Or... ?
