WOW omg rp what have you done!? i can only upload one photo now because i tried to upload a perfectly good one sitting there! Man I thought you wanted train enthusiasts to upload the BEST photos on there. All i was trying to do was become part of this because i have already made videos of trains on youtube.. but i cant take photos and put them on rp? I asked this Nikon D3000 for a christmas gift from my parents so i could use it to take photos and put them on rp.. but NO! i cant you know why? because you wont accept my photos that look just as good as the others on the website.


OMG rp! Im just a new photographer trying to become part of this because i love trains. YOU JUST LOVE TO CUT DOWN UPLOAD LIMITS DO YOU!?

First off, don't type like a 15-year-old girl texts. Second, let's see the reject.

RP did not force your parents to buy your camera gear for you. Not to be harsh but, keep posting your rejections here and most folk will help you become a better photographer and you will learn your equipment better as you progress. Just remember that EVERYONE's photos including the screeners AND the owners of RP (Admins) must have their photos screened the same way as everyone elses.

Your right! You did not say that but, the way you acted in your post made it sound that way.

1. Stop complaining.

2. Nobody cares how much your parents spent on your camera.

3. It's entirely possible to take shoddy photos with good equipment.

4. We were all n00bs once, and I can assure you that nobody hates you for it.

5. Post your stuff and get some feedback. The forum is willing to help you, but if you're more eager to whine than you are to learn, nothing worthwhile will come out of this for anyone.

Dude;

Your photo that you tried to get on does not look as good as ANY photo on this site. Sorry, but you need to take a chill pill. If you seriously want help to become a better shooter, this is the place for you. If you want to throw a temper tantrum, go get a babysitter.

Personally, I don't think you type like a 15 year old. More like a ten year old.

Take a deep breath... and here's some advice...

1) Nothing written here is an absolute rule, but they will all help if you follow them. Follow them first, before you start to break them.

2) Capture the entire train in the frame, or have something else within the frame cut the train off.

3) Shoot on sunny days, not overcast days.

4) Shoot with the sun at your back, so that your shadow is pointing at the train.

5) Follow the rule of 1/3rds. You don't want the subject of your photograph in the center of your shot. This makes all the rest of your shot meaningless. Think about the entire frame and what the eye is going to see.

6) Make sure the train is in focus. Use a shutter speed that is fast enough to stop it. Make sure that the lens has focused on it.

The image here is not doing any of these things. Hope this helps.

I simply don't feel like typing a long message, as simply I don't find it worth it. So, I'll go with a simple, yet effective reply.

The photo sucked. It's blurry, overexposed, and bluntly, suffers from poor image quality.

I'm 15 and am acting 10x more mature than you. You should work on that.

The light is drab and boring... not well suited for a shot like this.

Even if those issues were resolved, it'd still be a fairly boring image. There's no "sense of place," nothing of real visual interest... it seem pointless.

Luckily for you, we all started out taking pointless and poorly executed photos. You'll get better, but it'll take a good amount of patience.

Here are some images of the same subject that have pleasant light and are thoughtfully composed. Eventually you should be able to capture images that are just as interesting as these:

I'm 15. I'm acting more mature than you. Perhaps you should consider requesting for help in a mature way.

Ok the hard part, don't be in a hurry. You will get better and look at your shots as not good or great but something to start with. Your shot that got the boot haves a lot that needs work or reshot. Why don't you tell us what's not right, that's a start and seeing what you can do better next time.
