I still think it's a good looking shot even though it's cooked.

I did that once, all I got were the shits, not a single giggle.

I'd love to upload a series of images in a day vrs otherwise spreading them out over a two week period one by one by one as the appeals get processed. I just assume everything I upload will get rejected so I go one at a time.

As for your issues with RP - you don't set a good example by providing bad examples. The rejections were seemingly obvious (unlevel, over processed and /or composition) and credible. The rejections were for the most part valid.

Maybe you should talk to Travis about how he arranged to upload his set of 100 a few years ago?

I agree.

Never place that much importance on whether a shot is accepted to RP.net or not. It's no different from judging a pageant on Toddlers & Tiaras.

Quite possibly the truest and greatest thing ever said on this forum.

You know how I determine the quality of my photos? The ones that bring the most green in are obviously better.

The final one of this set was accepted with this crop.

Not that I hate it, but it is not what I saw originally.

I like this one more, but I know they hate all that shade on the left side.

This version is not bad either:

I prefer the "not bad" to the other two. The accepted, waay too much blah foreground, the tight one, that shade is not flattering and you have power line supports growing out of the cab. The in-between shot conveys a nice sense of place without crushing everything together.

It is true that the "not bad" shot appears to reduce the impact of the shade by being exposed a bit more, or shadows adjusted, and maybe also the particular containers visible at that moment are a bit lighter shade than those appearing in the tight shot.
