These pics (linked below) are rejected several times. What do you think?
Is the quality to low, the subject not interesting enough, a lost case, ...Can they be improved?
If so I drop the pics and move on.

Shawn pointed something out to you about the chromatic aberation (purple fringe) that appears in your photo. I must admit that first photo has an extreme case. I checked the database for some other photos of yours to see if it was there as well. It is, but not as bad. Has the camera been dropped? Now I am not sure if it is true, but I read somewhere that it can be caused by some alignment problems aggrevated by a sudden jolt.
I do see the grain as well. Are you shooting those in HQ mode vs. SHQ? I only rarely see the fringing on my C-700, and only under very contrasty situations. I can see it in Sony, Nikon, Canon and other digital cameras as well, but not to that extent. On some of those cameras it is more of a green fringe.
May be worth a trip to the dealer to get it checked out.

1) Nice caption!! About the picture, please have a look at the 'Iran Air' titles, and see how blue-purple they are. It's a typical Olympus problem! I also have a C2100, and I am experiencing exactly the same.
2) I would say a bit oversharpened, maybe some less contrast would look good, and especially the lamp post (or what is it) is in the way.
3) Oversharpened, and some more contrast would be nice.
4) Very grainy.
A question for you Daniel: which program do you use to edit your pictures? Because those are the same problems (especially the IB) that I had when I was using Microsoft Photo Editor.
I strongly recommend photoshop or something equal.
