:bulletblue: While editing is part of the process of photography and we love it, we generally wont accept over processed images that have lost their connection to real life.

While we will try to be as fair and unbiased in our submission process, there will be times when your image gets declined. We will provide a reason if requested. However don't take it as a stab at your ability as a photographer, rather see it as an opportunity to further grow as a photographer

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.
