Stock Photo sales vs "Artistic" photo sales

One of the main reasons I started a Redbubble account, is one of the stock photo sites where I do have a good sales record, would send me what is probably the nicest rejection letter ever written.

We regret to inform you that photo gate in disrepair was unfortunately not accepted. The photographs in the our database are intended for sale as illustration of brochures, magazines, websites, and presentations.
Your photographic and artistic work is remarkable but this type of image is not appropriate for our customers. Your photograph would be emphasized better in an artistic database.

That being said, I do like that I am able to put the more ‘artisitc’ works here, and even some pics that were for family or friends to order prints . Plus there is more interaction and community here.
