Post-Screening F-18

Wed Apr 22, 2020 2:40 am

Good evening, Today I had this photo rejected after HQ1 for high in frame, low contrast, overexposed, and soft. I just wanted to post the image here for some feedback and recommendations on how to correct the image. Thank you all for your replies. ... 0cc2b36a1f

Not high in frame. Agree with low contrast, would bring the blacks and mids down. Don't think it's overexposed, leave the highlights where they are. The "203" on the nose is the only spot that looks soft, most everything else looks normal.

Do not see High in frame obviously from this case.Overexposed should be related to the ground side.Lowering highlight / exposure slightly would be helpful although it looks acceptable for me. Agree with Matthew that only nose looks bit of soft. Contrast looks fine for me as well.

Thank you for your inputs. I will adjust the highlights and do some selective sharpening on the nose and resubmit.
