3) 4) no thoughts

5) I really dislike that RP turns the half-dark-nose shots away, pointless.
I think I agree with all these points. None of the shots are unacceptable, so these rejections are all borderline nit-picky. I think they could all be salvaged, but too much manipulation is just caving in to the nit-picking. It's your opinion vs. someone else---but it's their call in the end.
