I've been trying to get accepted in iStockPhoto but I keep getting rejected; the first two times I can see why, but this is my third and I was wanting your opinion on this. I keep getting that the pictures are too similar in subject or style. But, one is of medical equipment, the second is a lady bug on a leaf, and the third is of map with a car. Btw, I don't want to seem like I'm whining, I just really want to understand what I'm doing wrong so I can correct this.

Thanks a lot!!

I think your first two photos have a chance nacia, but I would not include the ladybug-on-a-leaf shot myself. You might consider trying a people shot even if it's a self-portrait. Good luck, drop me a line if you get accepted.

Is the text on the equipment in the first shot generic in nature, or is it a brand name? If generic you'll be ok with it, but not if otherwise.

Good luck! :-)

Hi there, thanks so much, I'll try upload something like that. Do you think a good landscape one would work?
Do you think they're being rejected because they're more "studio" based and close-up work?

It's generic; originally there was a logo but I took it out in PS.
The good thing is, though, I'd rather have them say that the shots are too similar, rather than the composition/lighting/etc. is bad!!

It's just a little frustrating cause I've been trying hard, but it's okay. This will make me better in the long run.
