Pre-Screen KPDX

Tue Jun 25, 2019 4:48 pm

Hello all.

While it's already been screened, I'll start with the following image that was rejected.



- Blurry
- Category
- CW Rotation
- Oversharpened

Some insight about the settings I used:

450mm focal length
ISO 125

I can't seem to get a proper reference to rotate it clockwise, otherwise it feels even more uneven to me. Lastly, I'm looking at resizing the photo down to 1200 px, but I feel it makes the details look even more blurry. Is this photo a lost cause? :)

Hi Dylan,

I screened this photo. Took the liberty to check it in Photoshop just now; it needs about 1.0 CW rotation. At 1200px, it still looks a bit marginal. Perhaps sharpening it less may make it look a bit better, but it could also show the blurryness more. I can't check that, since I can't unsharpened your edit.

Thank you very much for your response. I've resized the photo, gone a little easier on the sharpening, and rotated it.


It was shot at a fairly large difference (from the parking garage) so I guess the details can only be so good.

Sharpening is passable for me. Still needs CW rotation...the building appear to be leaning to the left.Some noise visible in the sky as well.
