hello everyone. i got this picture rejected for dark, level, size and centre. as i thought they could all be fixed, i decided to have another go at it.

rejected photo:

right my questions are:
1) is the editing good enough? i'm using cs2 but i'm not very good at it, and i don't really understand histograms and the like.
2) if not, what should i do to improve? is there a good foolproof way to brighten images?
3) does this picture stand the remotest chance of acceptance? i use a samsung S630, going to upgrade to a dslr after my exams. but in the meantime i thought i'd try to get some shots uploaded with the s630.

thank you in advance for your feedback and advice.

I'm by no means an expert, but I would think it would also be a 'Quality' rejection due to the noise in the image

Hi,

The image has so much noise in it that I doubt you'll be able to remove without compromising the quality to such an extent that it most probably will not make it in - sorry.



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

Hi

You should correct the centering. The aircraft should be higher in the frame.
The picture quality is not good, I agree. There´s a lot of grain on the pic. I believe it doesn´t stand a chance.
The darkness on the tail doesn´t help, also. You should try to have the aircraft correctly illuminated, even on a night shot.
I find the level rejection a bit picky. Play a couple of notches CW and CCW and see if the image looks better.

Hope it helps.  Smile

Cheers

Nice shot but like Andres said, just too grainy to make it here I think, especially for a common aircraft

also the baggage carts in the foreground are very distracting

What about the white balance/color ? Too much yellow for me in here.
