bad cropping
 
hi all
this shot was rejected for bad cropping.i can see that the cropping is well and the train is centered in the pic.
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=245785
any suggestions on this one?

First of all, it is too small. Second, you could cut into the tree on the left and the corner of the building on the right. The two columns on the corner of the building are too attention drawing.

If it's possible, enlarge the photo and crop tighter, focusing mainly on the train. Hope that helped.

first thanks for the replay.
i think that the tree in the left side give abreath space to the pic from the left side.
for the 2 colums in the right side i showed them in the pic so the screeners make sure that pic is leveled :D .but i can crop them.
about the enlargement of the pic i think that it may be rejected for poor image quality.

"Cut" away the bottom , hope it works .

i cropped the pic from right,left and bottom.but as Aaron said it looks too small so how can i enlarge it?

If the photo is not bigger in its original state, than it is now, there is nothing you can do.

Shoot from the inside of the curves, rather than across them (unless you use a big lens).

Cropping Suggestions on my phtoos
 
Rather than start a new thread on the cropping subject, I thought I'd update this one. There are two Amtrak photos that I took from Elizabeth New Jersey Transit's North Elizabeth station), New Jersey on the Northeast Corridor.

The first one is of an Acela train. I know it was also rejected for Bad Contrast, but I'm asking about the cropping. Is there too much space to the left of the lead unit?

The second is of the southbound Silver Star with an HHP-8 leading.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=249754

This was the third time these two photos were rejected for their cropping. I have recropped them a few ways (in, out) without success. Any advice on these two would be appreciated. Thanks!

Not trying to be mean or anything - just honest, but I think quality wise, as in the quality of the digital image or the quality of the scan, those pictures are seriously lacking. The exposer seems off (even if you REDUCED the contrast parts would be washed out and parts would still be contrasty) and they are really grainy -- cropping I think can be fixed by a rotate here, and a snip there but the poor grainy quality is a "mortal" RP.net problem.

As for cropping, the Acela has too much space on the left.
The HHP I like, but needs a CCW rotation of .5 to 1 and maybe a little off the left, but not past the first catenary post.

dodi4200 05-24-2006 10:04 AM

im agree with david that the 2 pics lose some details and also looks grainy specially the second one.
for the cropping preblem i think that you can crop from right and left for the 2 pics between 40-50% of the space.
