Default Thoughts on some Monorail photos

Gday guys,

Just wanted to get some thoughts on whether to give these two a go or not before actually uploading them again. I tried quite a while back (can't remember the exact rejection reason given), but left them in the pile afterwards for some work later.

and

I took them while on a short holiday on the Gold Coast at Seaworld. I thought they were quite nice, giving a real bright, holiday feel.

Whether they're RP photos or not doesn't really worry me too much, I still like them all the same!

Thanks in advance!

Count me a fan!

I like 'em both, especially the first. The second want to make me dive in, though cutting off the train is something that I am not a fan of. Still, plenty of accepted examples on RP.

Thanks Mitch! Yeah, I wasn't too impressed when I realised i'd cut off the end of the Monorail in the second one, but by the time it came around again (being winter, they were on a reduced timetable, only running hourly by memory) the sun wasn't in the right position anymore, so had to make do with this one! But I certainly agree, it definitely makes me want to go for a swim!

Normally I agree with my old pals Mitch and Charles but both shots don't do it for me. The one with the mushroom is the better of the two.

Seems like the screeners weren't fans either!

Bad cropping on the pool view (not overly surprised with that):

and Oversharpened on the mushroom shot:

Will have to see what I can do about the oversharpened reject and reup when i've adjusted it a bit. Personally I can't really see it being oversharpened, but hey!

I don't see it either, but hey - I have a hard time telling when a photo is .00000001 percent unlevel too.
