I thought this image to be a little different but the screeners rejected it for quality.
Would someone care to point out to me where I've gone wrong?

On perhaps a lighter note, this one was rejected for "quality people grainy" - when I get it wrong .................. !

Quality - yes OK!
Grainy - well a bit!
But people - surely that's a plaster bust unless my eyes deceive me!
Ah well!

(IMHO)
1) Look at the gear: it is overexposed and soft. The left part of the photo is generally out-of-focus- a little bit.

2) People? I can't see anything here.
Hmm soft at the sides? I think

Keep trying  Smile

Too much saturation in both of these. The second is slightly soft or has a DOF problem happening. A lot of purple fringing that you might not be able to avoid (unless the lens was changed).

What camera are you using?

Di you use a flash for the Mustang shot? The foreground is over-exposed and a lot of detail has been lost as a result.

Canon EOS 20D with 17-85mm IS lens.

From the EXIF - no flash.
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/100
Av( Aperture Value ) 7.1
ISO Speed 400

I would guess that the effect you refer to results from the bright sunlight entering the front of the hanger and the darkness of the rear.
Not sure what the answer is as a reduction in aperature (f8+) and reduction in ISO would result in an unaccepably low shutter speed.
How do you believe I should have set the camera?

Exposure compensation of, say minus 1/3 or minus 1/2 a stop might have saved the highlights in the foreground.

If you had shot with a larger aperture and a shutter speed of, say 1/60th, you would have had a bit more depth of field. You can easily hand-hold a 17-85mm lens at 1/60th.

Thanks Glenn & Viv.
