Your favorite reject and why?
Posted By: rfortson, 05-03-2007, 09:28 PM

I've seen lots of posts of various rejects. I've had many shots rejected and about 6 accepted. Like most of you, some of the rejects I feel are better than the ones they accepted, but that's okay (it's their site).

However, there's one shot I really like that they rejected and I thought it would be perfect for the site as it shows off both a specialty lens and the low-light capability and shake reduction of the K100D (IMHO). Is it great art? No way, it's just a fun shot but I like looking at the detail hidden in the shot. Anyway, here it is...ZZ Top at the Houston Rodeo in Reliant Stadium earlier this year. Taken with the DA10-17 fisheye zoom, 10mm f/5.6, 1/10sec handheld (from my seat). This is one of those shots that looks better bigger, in my opinion.

First off, I must say that I normally agree with their decisions - they've certainly chosen my best shots.

I reckon yours is pretty good though - an unusual shot and as you say it showcases the camera and lens. Some people have reported that after re-submitting shots they are accepted - why not give it a try?

This is my favorite reject - an old Dakota on a fly-past.

Yeah, Thommo, I remember that shot. Very nice and since it has nice colors and is interesting, it makes me wonder why it was rejected.

I think I submitted my shot twice and it was a two-time loser. I'm not really upset with the decision to reject the shot (it's their site, after all), it's just that I would've picked it before some of the others that didn't make it.

I'm just happy they picked any of my shots. Certainly helps the ego.
