Post-screening: Contrast/Soft

Mon Nov 23, 2015 8:18 pm

Hello,

This photo got rejected for needing more contrast:

Why is this? It looks to me(?)


And this photo got rejected for being soft:

The photo looks good me(?)


I'm looking forward to your feedback/tips.


Cheers,

A388

Hi Roger,

It looks a bit 'milky'. Try adding 10-15 more contrast in Photoshop and see the result (the figures aren't an exact science). Just be careful the grass doesn't get too dark.

Does look a bit soft on the cockpit, passenger windows and main titles. They should all be able to withstand a bit more sharpening.

Rather than using the contrast adjustment, you can adjust the left side levels slider. Many images suffer from low contrast due to the levels not being adjusted properly.

The F100 shot also needs counterclockwise rotation
