Just wondering, does PPG gets any eyeballs other than from we Pentax users?

BTW, is there any way to see the photo metadata (title etc.)? Or to have a deep link to one particular photo?
You mean other than clicking on the i in the carousel? I don't think so.

I'm thinking something is wrong again. I submitted a photo on the Dec. 25th and today, Dec. 27th, it came back declined. Two days?

Did it have your own watermark/name on it, or break any other of the rules?

I mentioned the other day that they are going much quicker now. I have had a few photos accepted in as little as three days and have also had some rejected in two days. I wonder why the sudden picking up of the pace? Fewer submissions this time of year or something?

They may have changed the algorithm.

E.g., if the early votes tend towards a clear direction, they could make the decision early too. Or they preview a user's submissions and eliminate duplicates. Just my two cents.

My take is that it's totally electronic now. No one at Pentax is making the final call. Could be because of the holidays, but my submissions from the week have been on a regular every other one acceptance/decline pattern. Granted it could be the photos, but it's just suspiciously quick and "uniform".

PPG

I was both surprised and delighted when 2 of the 3 images I uploaded were approved by PPG. As a newbie,I'd like to understand a little bit about the history of PPG, who judges the images, should I feel really great about having images accepted, are there "politics", etc. Thanks in advance.

Your Photo Gallery > Understand the Submission ProcessReturn to Photos

1. Your photo has been submitted to the PENTAX artist voting queue
2. Artists will approve or deny a photo, based upon technical proficiency and artistic concept, including compositions, color, subject & form
3. If your photo is generally liked and accepted by the community, it will be publicly displayed in the PENTAX Photo Gallery
4. If the image is in breach of the PENTAX Terms of Use, PENTAX reserves the right to remove the image at any time
5. On the artist dashboard, you can track an image through the submission process
There shouldn't be any politics because the voting process is anonymous. But the voters seem to be very anti-dog and pro-cat.

I had an image that I submitted yesterday evening approved this afternoon. Something has definitely changed. I'm grateful and I think this particular image is worthy, but I would really like to understand what has changed and how it may or may not affect the quality of the gallery.

I think PPG should publish the new rule if they have. Because we voters have the rights to know it.

Good one.
P.S. Last year I had two images of my cat in already. Now I'm tempted to submit more
