Your best rejected images- Win GG!!

Having modded for a while and seen some very nice pictures get rejected by the court of canaille here at BGG, and disappear into the detention room of private galleries I thought I would call some of them forth again for everyone to enjoy. This time the idea would be that you'd get something in return for your efforts. I have gathered some geekgold to give away (by having the luck of nice moderators) and will gladly distribute them (as well as every tip given to this list) to the struggling and garroted photographers among the BGG community. The one that gathers the most thumbs up for their picture get the biggest price (actually consider it more a scholarship) and so forth...

Inspired by Legomancers competition for accepted pictures, I employ a similar rules system for rejected pictures:

1)It should be a rejected picture (or alternatively a picture you never uploaded because you knew it wouldn't be accepted.)
1b) state the reason for rejection if you remember

2) You can only submit one photo as a post to this list.

3) It must be a photo (not a scan) that you have taken yourself.

4) accepted images are not eligible
(4b) rejected duplicates are not eligible. )

5) Users may vote (give a thumb up) to as many entries as they wish.

6) users voting are free to make their own judgments outside of the mod-rules and naturalised BGG conventions regarding the value of aesthetics and what constitutes "relevant" game pictures. For example people actually playing games are highly relevant in this context, quirky, out of focus, or not-enough-cleavage-too-much-ugly-bloke, this competition is about that.

7) Winners will be announced on the 8th of September (I had to push this forward with one day because of other engagements).

8) The following prizes will be awarded:

I. 10 (or 50% of final tally=my 20 + any tips given )
II. 5 (or 25% of final tally..)
III. 3 (or 15% of final tally..)
IV-. unplaced participants get 1 as long as the gg lasts (based on the number of thumbs up their pictures get)

Good luck!

And thanks in advance to any tipper who find it in his/heart to support the alternative photographers on BGG!!

UPDATE: Competition is now closed. Winners' gallery can be found HERE

It was Easter Sunday, 2005, and my side of the family was visiting. We had quite a few people there, and were just about to start a six player game of Catan, when my (then) two-year-old daughter came to the table to see what was going on. My wife took this photo as I was telling her about resource costs. I thought it was cute, so I submitted it, but it was rejected. It's been more than two years since then, and I don't remember the reasons for its rejection. Maybe it was the layout of the tiles we used that day, which was not quite standard?

Caption:
A MtG fanatic's summer dream: Surf, sand, sunscreen, and Magic the Gathering

Reason for rejection:
badly cropped, can't see components, irrelevant.

My comment:
I suppose I should have seen this rejection coming, because I knew that the game itself is only a small part of the photo. But that's really the whole point of this picture - it's all about the context of the game, and I submitted it because of what it says about the essence of Magic. In full screen size you'll see that all the summer essentials are there - beach, waves, sand, swimsuits, sunshine, sunglasses, and sunscreen. And yet these two players are opting to play Magic the Gathering (the cropping focuses on their hands and the cards to accentuate the gameplay), seemingly oblivious to their surroundings. To me, that says a great deal about the power of this game.

I suppose the mods had good reason to decline it, but it's still an interesting picture in what it says about Magic the Gathering.

I don't have a wide choice, since only 11 out of the 705 images i uploaded were declined. Full list of them (with my comments) is here.

I think the cover art in the alea big box series deserves more attention. So when i uploaded better box cover images, i also uploaded a cover art detail shot. Some were accepted; this one was declined.
Reasons: duplicate / too similar / irrelevant.

This was submitted in a very lighthearted spirit. Given the overabundance of meeple photos, I'm not at all surprised it was rejected as irrelevant. In any case, it was supposed to be a tribute to Gollum who has submitted all those great photos of game bits (like pirate ships) taken from below with nice blue sky in the background. Apparently the modders didn't get it. I don't blame them, but I still like my pink meeple.

The caption explained that this depicts the Asteroid Impact event. While certainly not my "best" photo, I was sure the lively depiction of the explosion that could decimate a continent would meet with approval.
Quote:
We're sorry that we couldn't use the recent image that you uploaded to BGG related to '', and it was removed it from the system.

Reasons:
Reason: The image had too much glare.
Reason: The image was too blurry.
Reason: The image was under/over exposed.


Comments (optional):
Nice concept, just a little too blurry


Sincerely,
BGG Community
Oh, well. Such is the nature of the geekmod system. At least one user was so charitable as to explain, rather than just pan my photo for geekpennies.

The most unfortunate aspect of geekmod is when users with no clue about a game accept photos that are not of that game, or reject photos that are. It would be interesting if the geekmod system could give extra weight to people who have actually logged plays of the game.

This image was rejected for being a duplicate. It's not, this and the representative image above (another one of mine) are two different destroyers, each about 1.5 inches long. If you look at the one below you can see the white stripes I painted on the stacks, not too shabby for a model that size.

Irrelevant? No.
Blurry? Kind of the point...plus the primary subject, the bridge, is in focus.
Too similar? I can't find another detail photo of the bridge

Oh well. I'll try again in a couple of weeks.

15. Board Game: Shear Panic [Average Rating:6.37 Overall Rank:2103]
From gallery of dicemanjnr
This was correctly rejected as:
Reason: The image was too blurry.
Reason: The image was under/over exposed.

and also the old favourite
Reason: The image was irrelevant to the subject.

This is a small sample form the sheep getting ready to be boxed for the 1st edition of shear panic. We painted each base, put a dot on each of their backs before mounting them (onto the bases, of course ) This is enough sheep for around 30 games. We made 550 games shake

Gordon and I both get nervous flashbacks when we think of the production work we did, one of the many reasons we now use Ludofact to produce our games. Unfortunately I don't have a better picture (we were all too busy working) and this one is quite poor...but you get the idea.

After GenCon, I was looking for games I took photos of that didn't have many "in play" images, and I was surprised to find this game had none. So I uploaded 3 images. Two got accepted, this one didn't.

Reasons:
Reason: The image was sideways or upside down.



I figured hey, fair enough. I did actually rotate it in order to see the board better, but it's only obvious if you look at the people in the background. So I simply resubmitted using the original.

From gallery of midnightmadness


And I got rejected again, only this time with a veritable shopping list of reasons.

Reasons:
Reason: The image was too similar to another image already in the database.
Reason: The image was sideways or upside down.
Reason: The image was badly cropped or not rotated.
Reason: The image was corrupted, please try uploading again.

Comments (optional):
I think it's on purpose, but it's unpleasant to look at.



I find it amusing I got the sideways/upside down again, but that throw in comment was worth its weight in (geek)gold - quite simply my favorite rejection comment EVER. Though I have no clue what the "corrupted" bit was, probably a problem with someones browser.

I cut my losses and figured there was pretty much nothing I could do to make this image acceptable to the masses (i.e. make it look "right") and moved on.
