|Well, now that you've scanned the image, do you think they might accept it since it's now in "digital" form?
I know a lot of these agencies are super picky when it comes to film. Like claiming a photo is out of focus when it isn't (I got that a lot), even with medium format.
Best of luck to you, though, if you're still trying to sell film-based images to stock agencies. It's a tough row to hoe anymore. And it makes me wonder, how did stock agencies manage to survive 15, 20 years ago, when all they had to work with was all this sub-standard film stuff? Duplicitous bastards. That's what I think of the lot. I spent some 15-20 years putting together a slide and negative portfolio that I was selling as stock images -- making some money, not a lot, but I wasn't giving up. And then digital came along and just blew my several thousand images into smithereens. Their prejudice is pointless, since most images will be printed at the size of a post card or smaller. And film can still compete against digital very well at those reproduction sizes. Even 35mm.
