Re your first line, if you don't think it is good to remove objects in order to meet site standards, then there is only alternative: Don't post it. As Simon mentioned above, perhaps there are other sites that allow those. Windturbines are my private obsession, on my old shots there are no such things, hence I don't like to see them in my new shots, so I always try to find a position for the shot where they are either not visible are alternatively positioned in such a way that a can easily edit them out. I have never heard any complaints from people who missed them...

A photo of a ship with just it in it, tends to be boring.

You are drawing the wrong conclusion. Photoshop/photo adjusting is sometimes needed to make photos comply with the site standards. That has nothing to do with considering yourself a photographer or not. The shot with the bird is interesting, but not meeting site standards. It is as simple as that. And I am sure the photographer took more shots when he saw the bird in his viewer when taking the shot. And for your information, I routinely remove windmills from my shots because I grew up photographing ships in Rotterdam without those in the background. In your definition I can now fortunately think of me as a photographer.

I don't think that removing something from a photo just to meet site's standard is good. The rules should be done around the photos. Not only mine, but there were a lot of interesting photos which were deleted because it didn't fulfill the standards. Why do you remove the windmills? they are part of the landscape. those are not photographs, but some digital edited images. Not photographs.

I didn't want show how skillfull i am with the photoshop. I didn't want to remove the bird. Your comment assures me that if some one knows to work in photoshop thinks of him as a photographer.

Same story about this one.

this photo was rejected due to, thay say, obstruction. For 3 wires it was deleted. I saw a lot of photos taken in northern europe harbors that are really obstructed compared with this photo. The rejection, i see, is based on the location. Do you consider this ship being obstructed by that bird? I received the answer that the tug isn't the problem.

Mike Griffiths you are right. the composition of the photo is rather ignored for checking the photos with the highest number of comments and taken by some photographers. Hence i took a photo where a lighthouse appeared in that photo and didn't get much views. I'm talking abt a old lighthouse.

To be impressive. To be caught from an angle that can blow you away. Anything caught in that shot besides the ship is good for that photo. Also each photo has to tell a story, and that story can improve if anything else can be caught in that shot.
