That's a neat picture. As best I can tell, RP doesn't really like blur shots anymore unless there is something very, very unique about the shot.

We visited Portsmouth and took a harbor tour in July--I wish an aircraft carrier had been there then. I like the shot and thanks for sharing it.

Thanks for your comments, Kevin. I think you make good points about the composure, but this one was by far the best of the series I took. It's cropped a bit tight for my taste as well (and it...

You know, Jim, that's funny because I didn't notice the train when I took the shot and actually didn't notice it until later in the processing. Now, it frustrates me that I've missed the shot I...

Ah, I hoped for a different answer, but y'all told me what I had started to figure out in my slow way--the poles are what I saw as primarily being the problem. I probably can shoot it next time we go...

Help with Composition (and anything else)

The first two pics (Trolley & Trolley 2.0) were rejected for composition; I changed the composition to move the trolley more to the left in the second picture (2.0) but received the same rejection....
