Here is the scene that I was thinking of. Thought you adapted one of the final lines.

Agreed on the blown-out highlights. I was addressing the lighting only - the execution could be better.

While the sun is high, I don't find it objectionable in this example. Had it been taken from track level, yes, but the elevation takes advantage of the sun angle, and most surfaces facing the camera...

I think that you totally miss the point here. First, the screening process, in theory, should weed out the "bottom" shots, leaving the rest in a daily photo contest, as it has been characterized...

Deaf ears aren't likely to get better. Between the four of us, we have generated over 19,250,000 views for this site. That should count for something.

Mike,

While you have may have a valid point that some captions may be too verbose for some viewers, I think that you undervalue a caption. The prettiest photo in the world is world is worthless...

I dug into a wayback machine and found an old post of mine responding to a new-to-RP frustrated contributor. Here are some excerpts:

Your rejected photo is flat and the sky is grey, implying that it is a cloudy day. Do you use a photo editor? Miningcamper's edit gives it a better appearance, mainly through the addition of...

I fully agree with you. These guys disappear from the site for months, and then think that they have to do a VGER (Star Trek reference) data dump to get caught up. I would be much more inclined to...

It's not a lose-lose if your goal is to improve the photo. If you like it as-is, that's fine. I would ask if you had been standing there with the D750 that you use now, would the shadows be that...

I like it, but I think a little bit of shadow adjustment would help. Don't forget, Kodachrome was high-contrast. A nose with some paint detail stands a better chance of acceptance than a black one.

I've submitted quite a few where I have attempted to minimize the shadows. Sometimes they are accepted. If not, I don't appeal.
