The last two images you referenced were 16:9 and even more panoramic than 16:9. 16:9 is about the limit for aspect ratio for RP, and I would need a good reason me to use other than a 2:3 or 4:5...

It's the not-so-new normal. The limit was changed from 1200 to 1600 quite a while ago.

Bob,

I did notice that the image also extended past the limits of my LR histogram. I couldn't get rid of the black limit violation, but that may have come from the banner at the bottom. I did...

Bob,

Color/hue is the rejection that I receive the most often. Between the original film processing, storage, scanning white balance and PS/LR color balance, there are a lot of opportunities for...

While Mitch has listed all the nefarious ways to get views on Flickr, I think that he severely overvalues these as a way to get views. There's no TO24, so what's the point of heavily campaigning...

That album convinced me that he either had a memory like Marilu Henner, or way too much time on his hands. Several of his albums were passive-aggressive demonstrations of accepted photos that may not...

I agree = the aspect ratio is the killer here. An earlier frame with a 6:4 crop would be better.

Ya done good. :lol:

You did the research. I'm certainly no expert, but I make no statements in my captions that i didn't look up if I don't have firsthand knowledge. Even then, I usually verify.
