Hi all,

Thought I'd start a new thread as the other's a long way down the list and probably wouldn't get a look in!

I uploaded a revised version of my Etihad 346 (first one rejected for over-exposure) and again it's been done for the same thing. This time I really can't see it.

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...05971.1119a6-ehf_man_060309_kn.jpg

The over-exposure is simply sun-flash down the fuselage (there are many pictures here with this), however it seems to stick out more on the gold finish. Everything else is exposed correctly. I have another image of this aircraft from the same sequence without the flash, however I'm getting really confused with this current one.

To top it off, the 'other' site accepted it without hesitation - now I know their rules aren't QUITE as strict but surely they'd spot and reject a definitive over-exposure, no?

Cheers,

Karl

You shoot RAW? If so, I would suggest using some highlight recovery to roll off the top end. just take some of the edge off of it.

I usually shoot RAW but was feeling very idle that day...

JPEG only for this one I'm afraid! I'll edit and upload the other shot, which isn't as side-on but has no blown-out highlights.

Cheers,

Karl

Hi Karl

I did not screen it but can only agree, the rejection kills the shot for me. Frankly you should have waited a little while until the reflection was gone...

Sometimes a reflection can add to a shot but I find that is rarely the case with sideshots like these.

Oh dear it really is spoiled, and also yellowish. I'm not sure what can be done here. The EH livery itself doesn't help.

How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

Quoting TimdeGroot (Reply 3):
Frankly you should have waited a little while until the reflection was gone...

I did wait, however my lens decided to do some hunting and the next two shots came out blurry. The frame before was good - no reflection but not exactly side-on. I was originally going to ulpoad that one but decided to risk the side-on as I thought the sun-flash was pretty discreet.

I hate sun-flash to be honest and always avoid it, however I couldn't help but feel it kinda looked OK on that gold fuselage. There are lots of images on here with similar sun-flash, so how come they weren't 'killed'? Also, I appreciate some hate sun-flash (me included) but I'm still convinced that, although a fair amount of flash is evident, my shot isn't under-exposed. Again, I know the 'other' site's standards are slightly (and only slightly) lower, but can you really see them accepting an obviously over-exposed shot?

I'm clearly not going to win the battle here but I have seen very similar shots to mine in the database - and I'm not talking about acceptances when screening was more relaxed. I don't like the flash either to be honest but I still can't see the over-exposure I'm afraid. But end-of-story I suppose - it's been rejected and that's it. No problem.

Karl
