Afternoon all,

After having passed the first screening this image was rejected Dark?

Is it worth an appeal or shall I just forget it?

Regards

Simon

I really like this and it may well be worth the appeal.....? It shows Gunnersbury Park by the way, just off the M4. Wembley Stadium of course in the b/g.

I agree with dark and would add quality as well. Unfortunately there was no sunlight on the wing and ground just above the engine.

I agree. Bad luck.  banghead 
I love the picture, but I think it´s too dark for the standards of the site.

Cheers!

Hello Simon.

I have just had a quick play with your shot and there is no doubt that you can lighten things up very significantly in such a way that I believe the shot is improved - either by lightening the midtones in 'levels' or using the curve. Now whether this would then lead to an acceptance is a different matter  wink .

I think you would then need to reassess the overall quality issues, but I would say that the screener may have been thinking that the shot (as it is) is looking unnecessarily dark - i.e. it could be improved further in editing without compromising the contrast.

All the best.

Paul

This one was also rejected for DARK.

It was shot at dusk and uploaded as such. I don't think lightening it up improves it. What do you think?

I played around with it in photoshop and it's a tough balance. Brightening the plane means blowing out the background and losing some of the depth in the clouds, also giving the impression that the subject is backlit slightly. This is the best I could come up with. Maybe still a little dark?

Thanks for that, Prat, your edit does look better, I'll try to copy it.

Is this better, well, more acceptable?

Thanks,
