SKY photos rejected as Similar Content: This content is too similar to another image or clip that has already been submitted or published.

Recommended Posts

Back in the old days they had a rejection type "low commercial value", and most of the time cloud / sky images would get that rejection -- because there are so many of them in the database that adding more to the selection just didn't make any sense.

Seems like this "similar" rejection is for the same exact purpose.

I submitted two images of the same subject but from different angles. They rejected one saying similar content. They didn’t give me a choice as to which one I wanted in my portfolio, they chose. Both were accepted at other agencies.

I did. You never know what a customer might want. Either could have met the needs of a buyer. As I said, a different angle, a different image.

Only two of my last 15 have been rejected and the reviewer was right for both of them. I corrected - in one case took another shot - resubmitted and both were accepted.

Because it's highly likely that the model would recognise herself.

Because it's highly unlikely that he had a model topless on a mountain and forgot the release, if that's actually his photo.

Images of wolf spiders swimming in water (or engaged in any type of aquatic activity) are not overly common. In addition to that, capturing such activity outdoors at night with off-camera flash while manually focusing on the spider while it was swimming across the water surface is no easy feat. I guess you weren't fortunate (or skilled enough) to capture the same kind of imagery yourself. 

Oh and by the way, that photo was accepted at all the agencies that I submitted it to (including the ones with strict reviewers like Adobe Stock.) No rejections at all. 

Perhaps you had better lift your game.

Don't expect sympathy re. rejections here. 80% forum members here have 100%+ (!) acceptance rate and to that everything is sub-par. Even if rejected in 5 seconds after upload. In the past two - three months rejections became so ridiculous that I didn't even bother even before the pay cut in June. Let alone now. Why would I spend even 1 minute hoping for a 10 cent pay??!
