hey Guys,

I had a note on this rejection pointing out the reflection on the aircraft.

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20080902_vh-ppj.jpg

As I didn't think it was an issue, can I assume that the shot won't make it?

Thanks in advance,

Martin

In and of itself, I don't think a highlight is a big problem, indeed, it can even add to a shot. Were there any other rejection reasons?

Rejection solely on the basis of the reflection seems a bit harsh.

Looks like a possible clipping issue to me. I'd be willing to bet that the reflection is less severe on the original and that it has been amplified during levels adjustment or similar.

If so, tone back the levels adjustment to reduce the severity. You can hold down ALT while adjusting the levels sliders to view the clipping areas.

If not and the original looks like that, you may be out of luck.

Highlight recovery on RAW always helps, but something like that will always be "too bright." It's a case where you try to minimize the reflection.

This type of reflection, which I refer to as 'sunflash' or 'sunstreak' and absolutely detest, will always be too bright no matter what, so I don't see why this was rejected. There is no rejection reason stating anything about 'sunflash'. I personally hate any amount anywhere but I've seen plenty of shots here featuring this personal nuisance which are no worse and have highlights no less bright.

Hi Martin

I rejected this photo. I think the reflection on fuselage, especially on rear fuselage, is too harsh. The highlight area are too wide and too much detail lost there.

Thanks for owning up. I personally think its a harsh rejection myself but anyway, clearly its not going to make it. I uploaded the shot only because its a rare case to see this type flying in Australia as they are constantly riddled with unserviceabilities. Anyway, another for the scrap heap.

Thanks all for replying.
