In defense of the OP, the two photos below had only one other photo separating them. Nice shots, but definitely candidates for "similar to previous".

Nice shot. It's kind of funny how it works when you fix what the screener says is wrong. Don't try to overanalyze rejections like that.

Only if you can't spell correctly.:-) It's just as close as a misspelling of the correct word for "German".
