Getting thru the screening process at 1x.com is rather, well, let's say "tedious". While there are some truly great images to be found there, I find the criterias for passing the screeners/members are weighted to heavy on technical issues as opposed to the general and emotional impression to the viewer. Also, a big number of nature and wildlife images are either composites or rely to much on photoshop to achieve impact. Why do I bother? I guess it does provide exposure to my images and in the end that is what I seek.
