Too Dark?

Sat Dec 30, 2006 4:44 am

I've had a couple of pics rejected because they were too dark. The pics below are quite dark, but a cloudy day in December in Sweden hardly offers favorable lighting conditions. And on this day the conditions were terrible! I could make the pics brighter in photoshop, but is it necessary?

Hope to hear your opinions!

Hi Robert,

I think 1, 2 and 5 are probably not for, way too dark and with parts already overexpossed. 3 and 4 look to me salvageable with some careful levels/curves adjustment. Btw, both have some areas almost oversharpenned (canard foreplane) and some almost too soft (fuselage and tail fin), so you might want to keep an eye on those.
Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!

Hi Acontador! Thanks for your reply!

Yeah, 1, 2 and 5 are dark, and they probably wont make it. The blurry tailfin is because of the hot air from the APU exhaust, can't make it look any sharper.  Smile
