Hi everyone,

I've uploaded these 3 at the moment, but after uploading, the sky texture has changed from smooth to "blotchy". Will they be OK?

Thanks in advance,

The sky does look a bit grainy, but not so much as to warrant a rejection I think. If you're so inclined, a very light pass of a noise-reducing filter can help. Did you not sharpen selectively?

Also, there's a dust spot just above the nose (and a few more faint ones, I think) on the first shot. And the second photo has some (window?) marks in the lower righthand corner. Easily fixable.

Wow! Very nice pics! Congrats!
The blue sky in the first two and the dark areas in the third are a bit too grainy. There´s also the dust spot correctly noticed by Gabriel, and I´m wondering, also, if the first pic might be a little soft.

Good luck with them.  bigthumbsup

Yeah, there's noise in all three. And I think the first one might receive a quality rejection... I think if you try to sharpen it anymore, it'll get too many jaggies.

I really like the last two... Fantastic shots!

Quoting Scottieprecord (Reply 3):
And I think the first one might receive a quality rejection...

Exactly what I was thinking. As much as I love the pictures, I think the first one may get the chop.

I'm concerned about the second one too. The quality is a little below par there too. The last, should be fine once as pass of Noise reduction is applied.

Sorry to say that, they are great pics regardless.

No 1 and 3 might get the centered rejection also. They are a bit low in the frame for the rules of the site.
