This 100%, could not have said it any better. There will certainly be frustrations in the process, but there are certainly a lot of learning opportunities. Going through RP is one of the biggest ways I was able to improve my photography skills when I first started out.
================================================

I agree with this to a point.
1) one can make the argument that an image can always be improved, there is no doubt some of mine were BETTER off afterward, however, many modified were a difference without a distinction.


Here is a night shot at Michigan City, I have others, this one was shot with a longer focal length than I usually do and I posted the way I liked it, a little darker. I made no attempt to resubmit. This is an often shot area but 11th street will shortly torn up. Photo was well received other places.

Bob,

I like your scene, but it is significantly darker than the accepted image. I did a quick edit of levels and cut down the orange saturation for this. I suspect that this may be closer to what the screeners want, but I'm probably a poor reference for insights into what they see or don't see.
