It's been a while since I submitted photos to be considered as a contributor to this stock library and I have yet to hear from the judges. Sadly I have considered I can't be bothered trying with this stock library again.

 

I have a rare opportunity to photograph pieces of the Murchison Meteorite that are in private hands, there are only a few photos of this meteorite on this site. So I won't be submitting them to this site, but to others that have accepted my work.

 

I would like to thank the people who gave me advice on what equipment was necessary to pass Q and A. 

 

The Sony One Stop makes editing very simple and converting, it beats the Panasonic hands down.

I never received any notification that the images I submitted had been accepted and navigating is a bit of hit and miss affair. 

 

So I upload a number of images taken with the Sony a6000 and they sit in QC for a few days, and then because one did not pass QC the whole batch has been rejected.

 

Fairly brutal I should say.

You obviously passed the first three and have them for sale.

 

The advice is (or was) to keep the next couple of submissions rather small, say eight to ten, as they'll still be getting a more careful examination by Quality Control.   The thing with rejecting the whole batch when one photo is defective is to train us to examine our photos more carefully, to do our own quality control.   People with five stars get periodic spot checks but not on all submissions.  People who are generally reliable get checked on the most suspicious photo in every batch.   New contributors get more checking. 

 

As far as I know, we go from three stars to five without there being any four star ranking for Quality Control.

What!!?? and miss the chance to get between 17-20% of the $3 the image could eventually be sold for here on Alamy?  You must be bonkers to pass by on such riches!
