There is a bar set and it's called submit any drone photo no matter how crappily composed, edited, or disfigured from perspective distortion it is. 😂

The bar for aerial photo acceptance here is quite low. Tons of views from curiosity or campaigning, and only ounces of likes for the majority of them.

I believe this one will be a memory for you. Perhaps a vertical 5:4 crop would produce a slightly better result, but verticals are generally poorly received here even when accepted. If you do...

Multiple exposures with different focal points and blended together. I liked it because of the complexity and the result achieved.

Probably not.

Looks and feels like a last second grab image with more minuses than pluses overall.

Tehachapi just didn't have the wow factor as much to me. The scenery is great, but there wasn't as many composition options along that line as there was in Cajon to me. We ran into some waits...

While I have traveled all over the US many times, this was my first dedicated railfan trip out West. I knew the shots were there, but it was way too easy to gather a memory card full of keepers. We...

Spent 3 days on Cajon, which was my favorite location of the trip. As an Eastsider, it blew my mind just how accessible the entire pass is. Drive anywhere you like, including along the ROW.

Search Loudoun Heights Trail. There's at least 4 vantage points along it that are still open today. You gotta put in some foot effort though.

I agree with Kevins' input. There's definitely improvement in your photography. I think the most valid rejection is for number 3, as the composition could have been different to keep the silos out...

[photoid=712304]

His previous was better than the rejection too. That's why I asked him how many he he needed on here.

Hi color! How many almost exact shots do you need on here?

Asking for a friend. :)

Your almost exact other one is better btw.

Could have been a mis-click rejection? STP or something?

I think this makes the second time we've agreed on something! I loathe watermarks and signatures on any photo.
