Hi,

My below photo got rejected for being "too red" or over saturated. Can someone advice me on this rejection as I don't see problem in the photo. I have seen similar photos in the database which is why I decided to upload this photo.

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

I corrected the colour of this photo. Hope you could see some differences.

By the way, I saw a dust spot in sky, above wingtip, near top edge.

Hmmm thanks for the correction Bubbles. Even though I see a difference, it is very minor. My question is actually how to work with the colors when editing a photo. In what can be "too red" for one person, may not be so for someone else. I personally don't see an issue in the rejected photo. Determining the right the coloring is difficult and if you have any pointers on how to work with colors I am glad to hear them. Maybe I am overlooking something.

He, he, try having a colour-vision problem.  Smile

I can see no difference at all between the two. Nothing. Looks perfectly white balanced, with no casts on either of them.

I have some degree of colour blindness and can find shades difficult to distinguish in some situations. Correcting colour cast issues can therefore be a problem. To be more correct, they are NOT a problem, because I can't see them, its everyone else with the problem  Wink

Contrast can be an issue too at times. It's a shades problem, dark browns and very dark blues look pure black to me. I just see the world differently.....

Just adds to the fun!

Best regards,

Jim



Erm, is this thing on?

Yes, it is a little too red. If you look at the tones that should be close to neutral, such as the white paint of the aircraft and also the color of the concrete, you do see a slight red cast.

This is easily corrected in a program like Photoshop by adjusting the color balance until it looks right. And even if you are color blind, you can do it by using the numbers. Using the Info pallette go over the neutral areas. The values for all three color channels (RGB) should be pretty close to each other. If one is unusually high (like maybe red), then you know the color balance is off and needs correcting.
