Asking for suggestions again...

This was taken during a tie replacement project here. It's a spike driver that has just had the hopper loaded up.

This one was bagged for bad cropping that I can't quite figure out.

I can probably understand why you were asked to leave, but why did you?

I have a D70 and regularly create quality 30x40 prints with very little post processing, and your camera should do the same, since it has the same 6.1 MegaPixel resolution.

Ensure that your images...

B. Erdmann

I think that there are many things amiss with your photos:

1. Poor image quality. My guess is that your camera is not capable of the quality required for RP. Your photos are dark, grainy, and...

Comments and suggestions on this reject for bad cropping?

Absolutely not whining as I have had several photos accepted.

Thanks.
