Pentax Photo Gallery-Accepted
Posted By: Wethphotography, 03-20-2007, 10:33 AM

Wow, Pentax just accepted several of my images. Very cool.
If interested, http://www.pentaxphotogallery.com/index-flash.jsp?#
search Artist for Erl Houston.

I submitted about 20 images, so I will happily accept a 25% acceptance rate.
I encourage everyone to try submitting--it is quite a rush to get something accepted.

Quick question.. about to submit some photos and the FAQ says photos should only be 600 pixels high.. but all the photo's I've viewed on the site are much larger. What size are you guys submiting?

Oh, and congrats on getting your photos accepted!

I initially submitted all mine at 600 pixels, but about half were rejected for being too small!? So I emailed pentax and they responded not to worry about size (I know how that sounds ) that their program would resize automatically. So I submitted my JPG files bigger than 600 and everything went well. In short, do not worry about the size and best wishes.

It's easy to see why 'they' accepted those images. They're all very beautiful and the last one is a killer shot. Congrats!

Thanks to everyone for the positive comments. Being strictly an amateur I have never really had someone pick and choose from my images. It is both humbling and intriguing. In reviewing all the fabulous photographs on the gallery, I have been pondering what criteria they are using to select images. I remember, Dave, I believe, in another post, wondering if his type of work would be of interest to the Gallery. Fortunately and appropriately it was.
Perhaps in addition to speculating about lens release dates, future sensor sizes, and medium format DSLRs, we can discuss the gallery's criteria.
Being serious again, the caliber of work on the gallery is awesome and inspiring; I have to commend Pentax on this project. A creative marketing tool, too. I wonder for how long they will be accepting submissions?
If anyone hasn't submitted and has been thinking about it, I would encourage you to give it try.

What PENTAX wants is 600 pixels on the high (vertical) side, if it's smaller than that it will be rejected. If it is larger they will down size it to 600 pixels on the high (vertical) side. If they downsize it for you, you will loose some detail. I process my images at the requested size and submit them at 96 dpi.
Sofar they accepted 20 and declined 15
