Do any these stand a chance of getting in? Which ones should i delete
from the queue? Any advice would be greatly appreciated? After 40+ rejections, I think i need some help? I am using a Canon 300d & 75-300mm III
Thanks in advance! Pat

I think your sunset shots were somewhat low on light and you played with the levels too much thus giving them a hazy-milky look. Your shots number 2 and 3 need a little CCW rotation. Shots 4 and 5 look pretty good, however it is the same plane, same angle which could give you a baddouble rejection.
I am no expert, just my
Keep shooting and don't give up.
As before Photoshop workflow, could Photoshop also generate some grains later on whilst processing the photo? Just out of my curiosity, one more question - will this tool somewhat impact the photo quality?

Usually no, it only brings out the grain that is already present.
Doesn't too much USM create grainyness though, or is that also just bringing out existing noise?
It's bringing out the existing grain. What USM does is sharpen the closest pixels around it, so if you got a grain spot, the USM will sharpen the pixels around it and make it stand out more. That's why it's suggested that you try and avoid sharpening unnecessary parts of the photo...such as the sky.
