That is little for 50 pages!!  And I like your photos!
Sometimes it is not worth the effort to photograph. I have some small stones as pyrite. But when I saw how many beautiful photos of pyrite already were, I did not photograph them. Useless to invest time in that.
I think that also applies to your photos of your swans, for example. It is getting more and more difficult to find good subjects.
I hope for you April is a better month.🙂

Radovan - I know you didn’t ask for critique - but Thijs started ..! 😝

Your images are of a better quality than most here and some are really good! But in my view you have to 1) Learn about composition especially the rule of thirds. Almost all your compositions (I have only seen a couple of pages) are centered which gives a very dull and boring images. Try to put the main motif to the left or right or up and down ..! This is very important, also because it gives the customer a change to work in the ‘empty’ space. 2) Rethink your motifs. 3) Learn to shoot properly, especially in sunlight which is quite difficult because of light and shadow. 4) Learn how to process your images so they pop up. There’s lots of tips on Youtube especially if you have Photoshop. I don’t know about other apps, but there must be some kind of way to process in an easy way.

Good luck 😀👍

Difficult to say something about without photos. I always zoom in on my photos. If they are not completely sharp, no matter how beautiful I think they are, I know that there is a good chance that they will be rejected. 
If the surroundings of the subject are blurred, I put it in the description just to be sure. .

Only the sharpness of the person or bird determines whether the photo is approved.
Mine's have sometimes been rejected because I placed them too far from the center.

Then it must be your camera ..? I have kind of bad eyes and a very old cheap Canon and I very rarely get rejections for docus. Can’t remember when I did. But then again I have to take several shots of each motif and hope that one is in focus. A huge problem for me 😂 Unless it’s street photography - where you only get one chance ..!

Sony Alpha SLT A68. Macro photos I mostly make with the Tamron SP AF90mm F / 2.8 lens.
I take a lot of macro photos of insects. But even if the focus is on the not entirely sharp foliage instead of the walkers, things have sometimes gone wrong.

My eyes aren't great either. My optician told me three years ago that I probably needed cataract surgery within four years. But at the moment with corona I am not going to the hospital. Despite the advice of my wife, who did undergo surgery and is very satisfied. 😄
