I guess I will leave this group.
Don't know if you are inactive as a group, but you declined all my pictures (like 6 or so) in under a minute.

You declined:
Monkeys of Swayambhunath II by Bjoeb  and  Monkeys of Swayambhunath by Bjoeb  from the Animal folder f.e..

I did a comparision with you folder. There are pictures more blurry, with not ideal lighting or composition (still good pictures, no harm intended). I'm pretty confident it's not the quality.

I won't deny that I'm a bit salty because of this, but this is the first time I actually don't accept the judgement.
