Bad lighting
 
This photo was rejected for poor lighting,but can I fix that?This is a nice photo except for the fact that its a little smaller than the average photo.

I think I'd let this one go. The weather's cloudy and the image appears heavily compressed.

Nice composition though, if you got that on a sunny day and the image quality was better that would be a good shot. :)

I figured that. I think I'll be able to get it better if I used a 200mm lense.Of course I'll have to get one first.Maybe a Christmas present or something :D

yea I agree with Austin. I am suprised that it didn't get rejected for common power on a cloudy day.

If the problems are in the lighting, chances are that even the best Photoshop trickery can't fix that. There's also a couple other things going against it, but I won't reiterate what's already been said. Just remember that lighting is everything, and that cloudy shots will usually turn out darker.

I think you included way too much sky in this shot. It's so blown out that even the power lines and tower in the background are being overpowered. A longer tele would have brought the focus more to the WC power vs the overall scene lighting. Try not to include any sky when shooting on overcast days.

I was thinking of not uploading it at all just because of the lighting and the fact that its not sharp(exactly because of my lense).I'm thinking of getting a 200mm lense in the next month or 2 and go back and try again. This kind of shot can be taken every day down there.Although I was lucky to get the local in that day.
