Your Help Please - I Think I've Lost The Knack

Thu Sep 18, 2003 11:17 pm

I'm not one to complain about rejections, I can usually see the screeners point when I get the email back. However, of late i've achieve a 0% acceptance rate, and whilst a few weeks ago I used to be able to get atleast a few photos of mine accepted, I think finally i can't keep up with the ever high standards here.

Here is one where I don't know where I'm going wrong, my camera is not the best compared to many on here, a few years old, just a digital one mainly for use on my uni course, yet it still produces some nice shots.

I use photoshop for editing, although half the time its hit and miss as I still haven't worked out all the tools.

Anyway could anyone help me out, I really want a new camera, to the point of frustration but I just can't afford it yet.

It looks a bit too soft and grainy too me, but then, it could be my monitor. Try sharpening it a little  Smile

Three things I see...

Overexposed (blown highlights)
Soft in many areas giving overall impression of being soft

Not sure it can be saved :-(

Life's dangerous. Get a f**king helmet!
