Yeah, if by "reprocessed it to make it a little brighter" you mean I bumped up the brightness by one in PS and resubmitted it. You guys were right. It was so dark. That little bit, and suddenly it...

Thanks for the thoughts, guys. I really do appreciate it. This first attachment was just a screenshot with the rejection reason.

I would say something about how ridiculous that statement is, especially when your job is to screen photographs (somewhat) objectively,...

Seriously? Murky dead space (a.k.a. "mud")? Alright, reject it for that. Underexposed? Alright, reject it for that. Cloudy day, though? You guys are telling me you'd look at this picture...

When sunny is cloudy

I'm not looking for advice, just thought you'd all get a kick out this. I've got 1,500+ photos on the site and have been posting since 2005. I've never expected the process to be perfect. But...

I've thought about this before, too, and I think your suspicions are right Ron. The change has already happened. With all of the complaining that goes on about the screening process at times (I've...

Half dead or not, it seems that would be the common denominator if you have tried other shots with the locomotives at different places on the bridge. I'm not saying it's a valid reason for...

You're too busy using your laptop and overflying your airport by 150 miles? :p
