The glint on those cars is awful, in my view; they destroy the esthetics of the shot.

1 and 2 look like rejection due to screener inattention and being uninformed. Maybe 4 also.

3, well, is that a real loco that was used at one time for real work, or is that something cobbled...

Sharp enough for my viewing pleasure.



While personally I don't care for the concept, the important thing is do you like the concept enough to go back and redo? Shoot for yourself, always. ...

This. Train sharp, background well blurry. An effect worth going for in the Willis Tower shot if you can't get it all sharp.

In focusing on the rejection reason people are overlooking other flaws. For one, oversharpened! Just look at that oversharpening artifact on top of the engine. For another, what is going on in the...

You need to spend time seeing more of the US! Looking at this shot, and many shots I have seen, or places I have seen, in the US, I would not single out India.

Of the people posting here before you, several said "touching" and one said "condolences." I don't think "touching" refers primarily to the RR action and didn't do so in the case of my post. I don't...

I'd like the shot more were the background hill given a touch of the shadow tool. There is some texture there that would work better for me than almost total darkness. Still, I don't see any...

It's not the equipment, Kent. I routinely get reasonable quality from my 70D (and 50D and 20D before) and zoom lens. You oversharpened them, badly.

I thought I did, I think I am. If you don't see what I am seeing then I guess I am not. Is there a full size option in flickr that I am missing?

Kent, those two shots don't look like your usual quality. Well oversharpened, I suspect. What am I missing?

Hey Dave, tell me about that bright blue bridge, please! It sort of looks like a bridge to nowhere, on both ends, but also it may be coming out of tunnels on both ends. Hard to tell.

As for RP,...

Not a fan. I think the shot is trying to do too much. On the one hand, it is a going away scenic in bad light. I think that is a no-go for RP.

But on the other hand, my complaint is different....
