Howdy Folks,

Finally recieved my 100-400L back today and went out to test it tonight.. This shot, its the lastest chopper to be added to the UK police fleet, and was hovering above their hanger taking photographs..

The sun was dipping behind the hills so if i was to upload id put it as "dusk/dawn" but is the following photo likley to be rejected for NOA_Dark?


Thanks in advance,

It sure is a nice and sharp photo but I think the contrast is a bit off...maybe make the helicopter a bit more brighter and it would be better.

Good luck

Hi Lew,

That's a nice shot, but maybe not enough of it is highlighted. The rear of the helicopter seems to be black with little detail and I think it might be this that has prompted the 'baddark' rejection.

On a side note - is that the South Yorks chopper?



Obviously missing something....

The back is dark but I like the overall effect. I'm no screener though and I can see why it could be rejected for being dark. But I still like it.
