Default What Do You Do When The Rejection Reason is Accurate But You Still Like The Shot?

The screener rejected this for obstructing objects... and yes, there are obstructing objects. There is a bit of a roulette with the obstructing objects rejection, and I lost.

Unfortunately, I recently appealed a shot and failed on it (and was wrong - in hindsight) so I don't think I should appeal for a while (personal rule - don't appeal again after a failed appeal for a month).

But - still, thoughts - compassion, posts to tell me I'm great and wonderful and the screeners are wrong and terrible?

You are certainly not great or wonderful and I am oh so glad you live on the other coast, but this should be a simple appeal or resubmit in two weeks with a minor alteration.

Gee Charles, don't you have some Chinese beetles handy with you. Just put some on the tree, report to the village that the tree is infested, and the tree will be cut down in no time. Obstruction gone.

Lightbulb Lets Play "Find the Fish."

I think the way to attack this issue is to realistically ask - what is the subject of this picture?

The tower?

The train?

The shed?

The taxi stand?

The parking meters?

The parking lot?

The vegetation?

It is just a jumble of things.


PS - Not a train.

Blow it up to a 16x20, frame it, and hang it on your wall. I hate to say this (I really do), but I'm with HG on this one. I don't think it's a great shot for RP.

It is a train, though.

Flickr!

It's a nice shot, shows the scene well, but not a 'typical rp.net' kind of shot.

Regards,
Michael

Its simple. Clone over the next car. They all look boringly similar anyway.

I beg your pardon, professor. This is a bus on rails.
