Hi everybody.

I had this rejection today:


I know it needs some clockwise rotation but... it was also rejected by "Contrast". I don't know how to fix that so If anyone could give me a hand explaining me how to do it, It'd be very useful to me. Thanks a lot in advance.

The contrast is harsh.

There is too much contrast in this picture. Tone it down a bit.

Hi Fernando,

I don't know if you're using PS, but I trust in any other program you'll have some king of contrast adjustment tool. The picture is too contrasty, meaning that during post-processing you applied too much contrast. It's not a huge amount, but it makes look the image with too much difference between high and low tones. That extra amount of (unnecessary) contrast also makes the picture look like it is just about to get oversharpened (red-white along the fuselage). And regarding the leveling, from this perspective the plane cannot go 'up', look at the fence in the background, it's leaning down when it should be either level or very slightly leaning up.

Hope it helps  Smile .

Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!

When I was reading the title of this thread (the meaning of contrast), I thought the original poster was after more clarification (too much contrast or not enough contrast).

While in most cases it is obvious, for newbies it might be difficult to distinguish between "not enough contrast" and "too much contrast", certainly if someone is working on a non-calibrated monitor...

Hence my question: can the rejection reason "contrast" be split up in two: "not enough" and " too much" (in a couple of cases when I had this kind of rejection, the screener added a "personal" to make it clear, which certainly helps!!)?

Best regards,

Well, thanks everybody for their answers. It's great when people take the time to explain what is wrong with one picture. Now I'm much clear about this and I think I know what to do with the pic. I'm pretty sure that I still have a lot to learn and if you take the time to explain... much better.

Yes Andrés, I'm using PS and sometimes and don't use tools carefully.

Thanks again.
