I find that it is sometimes difficult to know exactly what you are referring to in your thread, because of the one line posts - so, in this last post, I don't know which photo you are referring to when you talk about the 'curvy lines'. So if you can be more specific that would really help.
As regards the post previous to the one about the heat, I would agree that you should pull the photos you have linked from the queue, because none of those are going to make it through screening I am afraid.
Cheers - Paul

Read up on photography and search the database to compare what's in there to what you're submitting. If you can't see a difference, there's your first problem......

Without sugar coating it, I would take Karl's advice to heart:JakTrax wrote:I'm going to pull no punches by saying that you need to considerably improve your technique because those images are awful.

In all honesty, I get the feeling that you don't really have any idea of what you are doing. I too would take Karl's advice if you want to see any sort of progress on your end.

I know how tempting it can be to want to get your photos accepted here right away. But for this to happen you need to have some confidence about how you are taking your photos generally - which is all about getting familiarity with your camera and the basics of photography and then, these days, learning how to edit your photos once out of the camera to get them looking their best. You then need to be clear in your own mind what type of images are going to get through the screening process here, and what isn’t. So far what you have shown us won’t get through screening. Standards are high here, so there’s no shame in taking some time to get up to the required standard.
Take a look at the website generally; though I am not suggesting I am the best model, have a look at my photos via the link under my post here. If you look through a few pages of these this will give you an idea about acceptable motives, if you are able to get to an airport (I tend not to do anything too fancy). You’ll see the kind of crops that are acceptable - including crops of wings - which are fine so long as the photo is balanced.
I hope this helps.
