Greetings,

Have suddenly run into a slew of contrast rejections that are leaving me a bit perplexed. Haven't done much uploading over the past few years, posting the odd one here and there. Wondering if the hazy conditions are the cause and if so, bumping up the contrast a bit more should be done? Latest rejection:

Appreciate any insight as I'm lookng to add a bit more to the site this year.
Thanks in advance,
Jeffrey

Well, after having about 1800 photos accepted over a few years, I finally stopped submitting completely, since they were rejecting 80% of mine, most for absolutely no reason. I think the problem is that there are few hard guidelines for screeners, and certainly no coordination. But the bottom line is that by rejecting almost 30 out of 40 submissions from me within a month, they took away all of my incentive, and probably many others as well. Perhaps they feel that they have enough photos. I don't know.

It sure needs a good boost in contrast. I'm not a big fan of American's bare metal, it does weird things in different light conditions.

Yeah, needs a big kick in the contrast. Compare:

Quoting Dlowwa (Reply 3):

Dana's contrast edit makes it look better but background blown out looks abit distracting.

Check also the 'yellow' colours.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the feedback...normally, I've kept the contrast boost to a minimum (+5 generally) but that probably shows my lack of experience in photoshop/editing. I'm so used to shooting Kodachrome 64 slides that when I do anything digitally, sometimes what looks good to me can look better (or worse) to others.

Here's a first edit of the rejected photo. To save starting another thread for pre-screening, let me know what you think here:

Big version: Width: 1200 Height: 800 File size: 975kb


Thanks
Jeffrey

ps-check the yellows? Airplane parts or the overall background appearance?

The contrast looks fine now - as for the color polished aircraft tend to take on the hue of whatever is surrounding it, so if it is desert, with overcast skys, it will be yellow.
