My photo has just been rejected - happens often ;D - but the reason is:
Thank you but this flower is a little too blemished. Please correct clone the black patches.
If you care to look the original photo here: https://picasaweb.google.com/reikilajla/RejectedPhotosFromRGBStock#5599101653259009026
- you will see that I did not clone it - nature did... I only erased the background...

I think the approver couldn't know where those black spots came from.
But I would agree that the flower might look more useful without those black spots on the leaves, even though this is not the natural look.
I also think there is a misunderstanding - that does not sound like as an accusation to me that you cloned around with those leaves. On the contrary - it was only suggested that you use the "clone tool" of your photoshop software to erase the black spots. And, of course, you are invited to re-upload the image for a new inspection afther this correction.
Hmmm... okay thanks, Michael, I'll try that - and perhaps I should improve my English as well ;o)
