Backing off on sharpening is a looooong way off "art gallery quality." And whatever is top right is, to my eye, just plain weird.

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...

Aha, we are showing off bridge superstructure shots! :) :) This one reminds me of how long I have been on RP.

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....

I agree with the others, but I would also suggest color over B/W. The shot just doesn't have the sort of tonal variation that makes for interesting B/W in my opinion.

On my 50D the switch is bottom center of the back. On my 70D it is part of the dial on top, left side. Are those both the wrong side? Inquiring minds want to know! You have more...
