Hi Matthew,

well, as stated in the rejection mail the picture is too soft. Just apply some more sharpening on the helicopter and you should be fine.

Good luck!

Are you sure? I can see this one being rejected for centre, too. It's too low in the frame.

Yes, to include the whole skyscraper in the background; a valid reason imo.

I see your point, but this ugly thing doesn't do anything for me, and it ain't aviation related. But I'll say it's something that can be talked about... I think the better solution would've been to zoom out and include the rotor blades.

Your camera setting appear fine - everyone has to sharpen their images in Photoshop (or similar) in order to get them accepted here. Just apply more USM.

Very very nice shot Matt!

I think centering is not your problem, but it seems like it needs a slight amount of clockwise rotation.

Anyway, really hope you get the photo accepted, it's cool!

Exactly what I thought. I haven't checked properly but I do however think that it may be just an illusion, as the verticals I have scrutinised look straight.

A very nice shot ! needs only a bit more sharpen with CS2 / CS3 and it's fine !

Just make atention to avoid a oversharpen or jaggies over the grey lines of the c/s.

G'day Matthew --

I'll tread lightly because I assume most of us are protective of our art and I don't know the circumstances of your shooting location.

The most obvious problem to my eyes is the rotor assembly confused with the skyscrapers. I'd have preferred to see a simpler (i.e., water only) background. Less is more. Climb up on your mate's shoulders?  Wink

Regards,
Dave

Your taking pictures up the wrong end of the coast! Robina and lower is much better  Wink
