Dark Or Not Dark, That Is The Question.

Sun Nov 11, 2007 5:17 pm

It seems as thoug this is a little bit of a difficult thing some times(deciding if something is dark that is). And I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction.

I had this shot regected for category. I had selected dark, but that does not seem to be what it is.

I have re uploaded it this time without dark selected, but I am unsure if that is what should happen

Not dark.

Check the meaning of the dark category linked from the upload page - that should give you the answer.

I used to make the same mistake.

Dark is not determined by the "feel" of the picture (eg. dark clouds, in a shadow, etc.), but more a function of the Sun.

If the picture was taken after sunset or before sunrise...it is considered dark. Everything else is not Dark.

hope this helps.

The photo has a red colour cast... If you use Photoshop, press Autocolor and it looks a lot lighter too.

Hi

For such shot, 'DARK' should not be selected.

By the way, the overall quality of this image isn't good. It looks to me blurry, oversharpened, and also of a bit JPEG compression. Slight CCW rotation may be needed.
