Three submissions declined in a row, obviously I'm not wanted. I'll just help myself out, then! ;)

I know it is hard to get your work declined again and again - I have left groups for that reason. But I have also stayed, asked for feedback and actually accomplished improving my work. It is always your choice.
best of luck and keep shooting

I'm an oooooold man, so I may not feel as motivated to fight for that kind of thing as I used to be, but thank you very much nonetheless.

Hi Julien,

I am really not sure what you submitted or even why they were not accepted.  I don't think it is a question of being wanted or not though. 

The reality is that this group is tough, we look unusual stuff and we look for stuff that is well done.  (Sometimes too well done)  Any small thing can cause an image not to be accepted.  This standard is applied to everyone, even the admins.  It is just the way the group is.  Every image requires three votes and admins vote independently.   I know that this is discouraging at times.  It is for the admins too, who have their own work rejected, but at least the standard is applied to all submissions, there is no favoritism.

This reply to your comment will probably not make any real difference, but I felt it was only right to clarify that the decisions are not personal.  They are based solely on the work submitted, and each admin who voted does so independently.

Thanks for taking the time to share your perspective.  I am sure it will create discussion within the admin group and for that I am grateful because discussion is always good.

Thank you for taking the time to write this. Sorry if I sounded abrasive, that wasn't my intention. I wasn't actually accusing you of anything, nor did I think you were somehow treating me unfairly. It's just my personal rule to leave any group which declines three of my submissions in a row. If my stuff doesn't fit the group's criteria, staying any longer would be a waste of everyone's time, including mine.

I understand, I have operated on the same principle my self with many groups.  In the end, I have found some good groups that I fit into.

FYI... even as an admin, I have not had anything new added to the goup for about 8 months.  In essence I give my time and effort to the group, but I do not get any favouritism, or payback, and most of my work is not recognized here.  But that is my choice.  I like a number of things about the group, and having my work recognized by them is very low on my priority list.  In part because so many other goups welcome what I do.  So find groups like that, and then perhaps a group like this will not feel so hard.

Keep shooting, keep growing.

your requirements are so f*ckin high and funny... you decline a photo not because it's not worth putting in your galleries, but you personally don't like it. well, I don't like the photos in your folders. I leave and feel no pain for it.
