Sometimes you miss out on some of the most trivial things which can be easily spotted by someone else and they can point this out to you
True....for most newbies asking for help is very beneficial. I checked out Zac's pictures and they have very good quality, so even with a limited pictures in the database, he already seems to know what to look for in a good picture.
As far as my comment about people finding what is wrong with a picture, I'm sure if I had my photos critiqued before upload, I would always get someone telling me what is wrong with it. Instead I just upload. Most of the time I don't have any amazing pictures, and sometimes I even upload stuff taken under bad conditions....but I still get them in most of the time...and if I don't, I have dozens of pictures to put in instead. (Yes, I know everyone doesn't have the luxury of 30-40pic upload limit).....but I started at Zero as well, and that is how I built my collection up.
Also if you notice, some of the most popular photos are the ones that break some of the screening rules...so not uploading a nice picture just because the public opinion would reject it is not good enough reason....check out this picture and you'll have to agree that it could be rejected on many levels.
I'd rather be flying.
