At this point more than just professional photo help too. I submitted this photo and was rejected for Dark and Overshaperned. I went to the original RAW and reprocessed and resubmitted; photo was rejected for Info. I appealed and a head screener was very helpful in pointing out where my error was. I made a copy of the file and renamed so I could re-upload with the Info corrections. I now received a rejection for Grainy and OverSharpened (pretty much back to square one.)

Any possbility of saving; else I'm going to just chuck it.

Michael, it looks like it was shot wide open and you have some DOF softness issues as well as some softness probably from the lens as a result of it being wide open.

Michael lovely shot and well done.
Exactly how I would shoot it and I am quite sure it will make a great print for on your wall at home.
Sadly not according A.net standards.
Next time shoot at least 2 frames, one as you did with a wide aperture and one with a small(ler) aperture incase you want to upload(and have it accepted) here at A.net.



The truth lives in one’s mind, it doesn’t really exist

Hi Michael,

Lovely shot! I like this kind of motiv, I recently had a similar one accepted, but I cropped it a bit closer, because DOF can be a problem, if the aperture is not small enough  Smile

Here's my accepted one:

May you can try a closer crop as well?

When shooting shots like this with a large front-to-back range, it is best to use the smallest aperture possible, to maximise the depth of field. Shoot with aperture priority and use a tripod if necessary.

Good point; I just looked at the RAW settings for this photo and I was shooting with shutter priority. Good advice all around. I appreciate it. Back to the drawing board.  Smile

I agree, but I hate to carry it around...  Smile

I took my shot (100-400 @ 390mm) with IS on, with following settings: Av=8.0, Tv=1/400

Best regards,

Walter

Quoting Michlis (Thread starter):

I personally love the motive on this shot and hopefully you can improve upon it so it can be added here. If anything, surely don't chuck it - save it for your personal collection!

Thanks. It was "an end of show" shot after people were mostly gone and just before security threw me out.  Smile I might mess with it this weekend and try and crop it, but after three times at bat, I really don't want to be a pain in the rear and take up more time from the screeners. It will certainly become an 8x10 or perhaps an 11x14 for my office wall though...shots like this always gets people buzzing at the office.

I cropped this photo to 11x14...it still would probably not meet the standards here, but I did have a gloss print run off ...it came out pretty good.

It does!  bigthumbsup
