ugh! I hear u! i always feel angry, sad,and rejected when a group denies my pic! Just because you have a group doesn't give you the right to judge someone's work! i mean a pic shouldn't be denied unless you can tell it was thrown together in 5 seconds or copyrighted material. Otherwise, even a piece that doesn't look the greatest to someone could have taken the artist a lot of time and effort. All artists, especially beginners, need encouragement for their work. I hate snobby groups and avoid them like the plauge. i almost wish we could organize boycotts of snobby groups. but I don't think enuff people feel as strongly as I do on the matter.
