Alright I need some suggestions on how to improve this picture

It got rejected because of bad cropping which I disagree with however I think I will take some space off from the left of the unit. Any other suggestions?

I suggest taking a bit off on the left side, about an inch or so.

Crop some of the wasted space off of the left side and you'll be in good shape to re-upload.

Thanks for those, I just wanted to be sure that there was not anything else that needed to be done. I fixed it and resubmitted it and was accepted, here it is.

Here is a picture that I thought was rather cool with the head lights but it also got rejected. Could someone tell me if there is anything that I could do to the photo.

I see that you cropped the image properly, but on a different note, I don't care for the heavy orange tint from the lights. Does your camera have a white balance setting ? If so, have you ever played around with it. Most digital cameras have a setting that will compensate for the artificial lighting and produce a better (in my opinion) image. If you like the orange tint and purposely created the image this way, then never mind.

You know what Rob,

I never realized that there was that feature on my camera until just now when I read your post. Next time I go out to take my night pictures at Oshawa I am going to play with some settings there to see what it looks like thanks!

Hey Rob here is another Photo at night, this time using the artificial light filter, or whatever it is called.

Looks great. I'd say that there's a HUGE difference ! 8)

I would have to agree with you there Rob. I love the way that unit looks with setting the White Balance properly. I look forward to taking many more night shots now!
