Need help for the future
I submitted sum photo's Today, and have since had 5 rejections. all were either Too cloudy or bad cropping or both. I will add the photo's below to show you all what they were.

I don't want to know how too fix the photo's, as I don't have that sort of Technology now like I use to have. All I want to know is how to stop it from happening again. I know you can't stop cloudy skies etc, but I have no idea what cropping is nor how to stop it.


The top 4 images were the latest to get rejected. The one at the bottom is of special interest to me, as its show myself, Grandfather & Brother.

The thumnails are way too small to tell what is actually wrong with the images. Link us directly to your rejections.

Added a direct Link to my Rejection page.

You didn't add a link to a "rejection page", which I suspect we would not be able to see anyway. You added a link to one of the five rejections.

Cropping is not something you "stop", cropping is something you "do". If you are not doing adjustments in software - and if you don't have any technology at all, don't bother with RP - then you need to frame the shot properly when taking the picture. (Cropping is the term for changing the framing in software.)

To learn proper framing in general terms, to build your knowledge base, look at lots and lots of RP shots and read some books on photography.

Take a look at my Railpictures beginners guide in my signature, too. Other then that, good advice, J. :)

It looks like the linked image also needs some CCW rotation to it.
