Rejection Question

Fri Mar 09, 2007 9:23 am

I got this one rejected for overexposed and quality. Now the exposure looks good on my screen, I don't see any loss of detail on the airplane or blown out areas.
I am on an LCD and got used to seeing things bright. I got a few dark rejections when I switched to an LCD so now I know that a bit brighter image should be good to go. Is it really way too bright this time?
I think it could use a touch of contrast boost though.
Thanks.

Ivan

It doesnt look overexposed to me but then again i am on a laptop right now. For me it is bright but not too bright, it might be due to my laptop tho.

It is. It's overexposed, oversharpened and oversaturated...It looks like you used the shadow-highlight tool of PS a bit too much. I would re-edit from the beginning...

Looks ok to me too.

Was there snow on the ground? Because from what I see, there are no real traces of Shadow/Highlight used, but more signs of reflection from snow.

Yes, lots of snow on the ground. I shot this in Manual mode and got readings from my Sekonic light meter which is quite accurate. No Shadow/Highlight tool was used during editing, no need for that...
Thanks for your replies guys so far.

Hey Ivan - long time no see.

I have the same reg captured coming into YMM. These aircraft I never seem to get the same colors - very dependent on lighting. Here it is:

Mine is a winter shot as well, the approach is over a field that is covered in snow that is never touched. I seem to have more contrast (less light on the underside), mine does seem a bit darker, but not overly so.

For my eyes if you boost the contrast it would be alright.

Hello Ivan,

it looks on my EIZO also overexposed. You can check the Histogramm in PS and you will the problem.
I agree with LIPH, the photo is a little bit oversharpened (look at the area around the left wheel for example).

Greetings Klaus
