Rich-

I'm only 14, and I just started this hobby last year, and I'll admit it, every picture I took was rejected and yes, that was frustrating. But now, I've been at this for about 8 months, and I'm even suprised how far I've come. I thought my photos that I took were great at the time I took them when I first started out, but now I look back, and I see how much better I am now. Many of the things I have leaned from the photos in the database, and the constructive critizism in the forums have really brought me a long way. So give it time, and be willing to learn from your, as well as other's mistakes, and you will do better. Good luck.

Hey, I'm 13 also. I used to complain all the time about my rejected photos, not posting on here, but complaning to my friends on AIM (and even Chris Starnes on his personal IM!). I would submit everything I took! I thought for a while it was my CAMERAS problem, not mine! So, I spent $200 on a new camera setup, and, suprisingly , still got photos rejected. I finally took some time and looked around at photography books and here. I learned about what is a good angle and a bad angle on here, what is proper lighting and what is terrible lighting. Instead of just shooting, I acually would think about how the shot would come out. Now I have 137 photos on here, and all but 45-ish were taken since June! You can complain all you want about how you got a rejection for an out of focus picture, but most likely it will get you in more trouble then help.

Keep at it, dont give up because some of your first pictures arn't on par with Ansel Adams.
