Softy Rejection

Fri Jan 26, 2007 1:25 am

Rejected for being soft ...... - any comments? Quite frustrating to get it rejected for soft after waiting nearly 10 days  Smile

It is a little, but looks like it might be more of a blur problem. Looks low in contrast too.

Hello Robin

I also think the photo looks a little soft. It might be improved if you give a bit more sharpening. I just tried and it seems getting better.

And I would prefer a tighter crop on the left.

Robin.

No doubt that Hongyin's edit is noticeably sharper. I think you can take heart from that and I would encourage you to consider reuploading with a new edit, as it is quite a striking shot - those reflections and the prop are great.

All the best.

My version would look something like this:

You might have a winner, good luck.

Guys!

Thx vm for all the feedback .... , will give it this extra kick of sharpness and reupload. Sometimes after a long day the eye can play tricks on you as I remeber it was late at night when I worked on that.

Re the "more" crop on the left - I think it looks a bit unbalanced after ....
