"Thanks so much for thinking of me with this project. Unfortunately, it doesn’t match what I’m looking for at this time. This is an incredibly subjective business, so I encourage you to keep submitting this and I hope other agents feel differently!
Best of luck!"

This was a pleasant surprise! I wasn't sure if my query had made it through, since she seems to reply really quickly (at least for rejections), so perhaps she has a "maybe" pile.
