If the pictures would be worth a try to upload.

they would probably be rejected for "subject too far away"?

I'd upload them. The second one may have a little too much space on the right. Try cropping some of that out. Take care. Nick

No-you'd get creamed for lighting... isn't the lighting better at a different time?

These three shots are from the north side of Miramar Hill in San Diego. Access is very difficult, and this is the most environmentally-friendly and legal spot for pictures. It's always going to be "backlit", but that doesn't mean that there can't be light otherwise.
I assume that you're north of the train. It might make for a unique photograph if you stood on that rock face near the train...

I was a bit south of the star, but along this street

If you can somehow move the sun north of the Tropic of Cancer, then more power to you.

Mr. Herndon, there is some sort of light in the photographs, don't you agree? If that's the angle you're pursuing, I think I've classified it.

I'd love to stand on the rock face. But a lot of this isn't very accessible; this is an area of industrial parks and the MCAS Miramar.

I'll get to cropping those photos tomorrow.

Yes there is light, but the photos are either back-lit or have the effects of high sun. Both of which are reasons for rejections on here. And the angle is too far away

And upload them anyway? Even though people on here have told you that with the back-lit issue, and the angle, they probably will be rejected. When they get rejected, don't come crying in the forums.

I won't. Had it been unanimous I wouldn't bother, but we had a dissenter or two.

I have no need to come here with them at that point. Please do not try to predict what I do; this is why I ask opinion beforehand...

Why, yes I do agree Mr. Weber. It's called backlighting, which only really works good in two scenarios, this not being one of them. If you really think that any one of these shots would be accepted to RP, I think you're very much mistaken which was the point of my previous post.

Okay, thank you. And thank you for handling this much more civil than I did.

Huh? Could you translate that for me.

You won't upload, but if what would have been unanimous you wouldn't bother? Are we your "pre-screeners" now?

But you are asking opinions beforehand, you were told said opinions and you don't like them. So seeing as you came on here for us to "pre-screen" your photos please read the following.

We have processed your submissions and rejected them for the following reasons: Backlit, high sun, bad angle.

If you don't agree, well you get what you pay for.

Don't forget foreground clutter. Some of those shrubs were obstructing. But enough beating a dead horse...


Don't worry, man, just go find a sweet spot that gets you some good light and you'll be golden...

From what I see it looks like you can get a good shot early in the morning..... best in summer but maybe now too depending how early you take it.
