Thanks for the response Markus,
My M.O with the images was as follows (using Photoshop 7):
1. Adjust levels to bring the image back in line with how I remember the conditions or what I find more pleasing to the eye. The images straight from the camera always look a bit muted.
2. Rotational adjustments to get the picture level
3. Crop the image using a 6.666X5 ratio
4. Re-size the image to 1024x768
5. Sharpen up the image using a photoshop plugin called 'Ultra Sharp'
6. Sharpen further if necessary using USM
7. Save as a JPEG file using min compression.
I'll have another go at re-working them tonight I think. Out of interest, can you or anyone else give me your interpretation of what BadScan means in the context of these three images? Please be assured I'm not throwing a hissy fit over these rejections, it would just be really useful to have some pointers which highlight what it is about the image that qualifies it for BadScan.
Hmmm... Developing this further, it strikes me it would be really useful if there was a page which provided specific examples of all the image related rejections. I would of course be more than happy to submit any of my rejected images as I think I've had images rejected for just about every reason going!
