Default Not my week (more bad cropping)

Good afternoon gentlemen.

Any thoughts on the following rejection? I have some wiggle room on all sides.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...30&key=2276643

I'm also not sure about the leveling...

As always, your help is much appreciated!

One way to go is to get rid of the edge detail, not only the branches right/bottom, but I decided to dump that toll booth or drive-through bank think at the top, see attached. Hope it works, I really like it!

I agree. Crop the top to just above the culvert below the toll/bank/drive thru thingie,some off the bottom so the falls comes out of the right corner of the frame and then the left side to size it.

Nice angle.

Thanks for the help, guys.

Apparently, the wire kills it.

Honestly, I still don't find the wires to be distracting even after having had them pointed out. Oh well...

VERY interesting perspective! I love the crop and composition. The way the falls lead you to the engine. Very good work.

I wonder if it's more that little bush/shrub thing in the middle of the loco rather than the wires. The bush could be removed

I also don't want to speculate on the potential cloudy reject but your 0 for 2 with that.

Rejected on appeal, case closed. Nitpickers gonna nitpick!

This is a looking-south shot, so it would be near impossible to do in sunlight.

I'd leave this version and go back when there's some life in the scene. the color and surroundings are quite drab. And I'd fix the perspective distortion too next time

I feel if you complete a better overall photo, it'll be accepted next time.

Good call. Spring isn't the best time for photo ops here, colorwise. One problem is that this particular waterfall doesn't always have this much current. In fact, it sometimes even runs dry in the summer months.

I shall return.
