    Hello, welcome to the wayfarer forum.

    It seems a great place. Sad it has not been accepted yet. Nothing bad in all you are showing to us. Seems really good.

    Can you share with us the details of a rejected nomination so we can try to find out ? Do you use these pictures ? What were the title, description and infos?

    Seems like a great place to me. I would've happily accepted it had it come through my review queue.

    The only thing I would say to change (and this shouldn't matter, but I know some people are picky about it) is that your reflection can be seen in the supporting photo. This image isn't used on the wayspot, so as I said, it shouldn't matter, but some reviewers may harshly view that as "submitter identifiable".

    Actually submitter identifiable also includes the support picture and any info in it, so that the submission is truly anonymous. This one I would say is borderline as some local reviewers may recognise the submitter.

    If you’re reacquiring the supporting pic anyway, I’d try to get one when they’re open. There’s something psychologically about a photo with a great big “closed” in the middle that probably isn’t helping your case.

    That said, if it came my way I’d be totally happy to accept so I do think you’ve been pretty unlucky.

    the only info on rejection is other criteria which doesn't help in the slightest. I will try and resubmit again
