Default How Much Have Standards Changed?

I thought it was kind of curious that I had this shot rejected for bad cropping (which seems to be my specialty lately) .


After I compared it to an image from a couple of years ago that was in the database.


Please don't get the wrong idea-that I am complaining that the original is in and mine isn't. I just thought it was a good illustration of the tightening of standards over time.

I don't think it's the cropping as much as it is the placement - nothing is chopped off or to tight, rather the engine is simply right in the middle of the photo. I don't think this is an example of better standards in this case.

If you have the room you may want to resubmitt with more sky.

It seems like it could use just a little more on the right, but that might just be me.

Standards are most definitely getting higher on this site, there's absolutely no way I could have gotten this shot in recently!

I too think it's a placement issue. The foreground has those weeds and parts are in shadow...
