Hi,

I recently had this shot rejected.

http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...060510_jallhrtower05042006dusk.jpg

I've tried a few times but keep ending up with to much grain and bad contrast. I've looked at other shots in the database and found a few (recent uploads) which suffer with grain and looked washed out, but they have been accepted.

Any help on improving my picture?
Thanks
Marc

Did you check your histogram? Its dark...but I think its fixable with proper workflow. I made a quick adjustment on the curves and its looks good.

Hi Vas,

Many thanks,

As for the looking at other pics, I was just trying to get an idea on what the acceptable levels for grain in low light were.

Too dark, too far away, it's soft, and it's not level.

Marc,

As harsh and straight to the point jeff is or can be, he's right.

Besides that, looks ok to me!  biggrin 

Kindof reminds me of the old saying "Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the theater?"

Honestly, I don't think this shot can get in. It's dark and soft and the clutter in the background does not help.

Hope you find this "constructive".

I'm afraid I agree. If it were mine I would bin it. You'll get a better shot next time.

I'll accept the points here.

Can't do much about the clutter though being at one of the worlds busiest airports.
