Maybe I am far too simple-minded in my thinking but what makes this photo "poor light". I've seen plenty of photos including some of yours that have been published with glare in windows, or shadows across part of the nose. Just as what you are saying is so horribly wrong with mine. Yours were accepted, mine was not.

I had other photographs submitted and rejected with grey skies, and given this rejection comment: - Lighting (Cloudy): Cloudy day shots of common/standard power, as well as cloudy images of common/standard angles and scenes, are generally not accepted."

As I have said previously, the judgments of photograph submissions seems to vary greatly, and that is causing my confusion as to what is acceptable or not.

I am in no way shape or form suggesting that my photos are suburb but the lines seem to be blurred. When someone new to the site is asking questions about why or's are accepted or rejected.
All the chaps who have commented above and given you some direction on getting started here at RP are spot on - they do this regularly and freely! Look, learn, listen and read up as much as you can with the older forum posts. Spend time studying the accepted photos in the database as often as you can - find some photographers you would like to aspire to even and follow them. In doing so you will get a grip on things and your photos will improve greatly.
