You're doing an excellent job at age 13.

It sounds like you're starting to recognize the lighting style the screeners want. My advise to cut down on the rejections is to not submit when you know...

CSX Fan, you are right about the noise at the bottom. I did lighten that portion of the image and it did degrade the image quality.

Wanted everyone to see my reject

I like this photo a lot but it was rejected for bad cropping. Thought I would post here and get some feed back. Does anyone like my cropping?

For what it's worth, it doesn't look to dark to me. I'd probably agree with the obstruction comment though. Maybe wait for it to emerge on the other side.

I would suggest cropping out some of the water. You could remove the bottom 25% of each photo and not lose any valuable image space. The second one would look nice as a panoramic. That may not get...

Thanks for all of the input. I'm not going to re-crop. I like it the way it is, and wouldn't be happy with a lesser version accepted to the site.
This rejection just suprised me. I thought it...

Geoff,

I like that second picture a lot, but as mentioned, it doesn't fit the criteria of this site. Here (http://matnic17.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=71656) is a favorite photo of...

I've had shots rejected for being too dark as well. Personally I prefer a little darker image and I like your exposure. If you were to hold a print of your image next to the real scene your colors...

After some work in photoshop I re-submitted.
This photo was rejected for "cloudy shot of common power". That's a rejection I can live with.

I would consider cropping out some of the sky. The photo will be a little cleaner without all of the cables above.

I sent you an email with my attempt at cropping your photo.

Re: Poor Lighting/Too Dark

I made my first submission today and all four pictures were rejected for poor lighting (too dark).

I honestly don't think this one is too dark.
