Please Help?

Mon Feb 25, 2008 11:03 am

Hi everybody,
I've a problem with one of my photo I though it would be accepted on a.net, and i cannot understand some reasons for the rejection.
It was reproached for :
- image quality poor
- processed in an unacceptable manner (i think i know why, due to the "wavy sky in the corners)
- the main subject not correctly centered in the image (huh! for me the plane is centered ! )
- the aircraft is too far in the distance
- soft appearance

If someone could help me to improve or explain, I would appreciate.

thx

Quoting Ouioui (Thread starter):
- processed in an unacceptable manner (i think i know why, due to the "wavy sky in the corners)

The cockpit window is showing as blue/green. Would that be the case with a bright yellow/orange sky - or would the angle of the glass be enough?

Also lots of banding with the different colours going out radially, as you say.

Quoting Ouioui (Thread starter):
- the main subject not correctly centered in the image (huh! for me the plane is centered ! )

More distance to edge of photo at the nose than at the tail

Quoting Ouioui (Thread starter):
- the aircraft is too far in the distance

As above..... nose gap should be the same as tail gap, and smaller.

Quoting Ouioui (Thread starter):
- image quality poor

Probably the sun glare distorting the aircraft, and banding (above).

Hi Ouioui,

Let me start by saying that due to the sun glare/reflection 'burning' a substantial part of the fuselage, this picture will not be accepted here.
Having said that, in order for you to better understand the other rejection reasons, I think Andrew has pretty much given a good explanation. The aircraft is too far right and a bit high in the frame, and too distant (you can crop closer, there is no apparent reason for a wider crop). Also, you have increased way too much both contrast and saturation, resulting in the unnaturally looking colors and the 'banding' in the sky. And the aircraft looks soft.

Next time you're shooting against the sun, try to have a big part of the aircraft blocking the sun (tail), or try to shoot when there are some faint clouds, that will help to keep the glare under control. Of course, you can always use filters for that, too!

Hope it helps  Smile .
Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!
