Pre-Screen F-15

Mon May 11, 2020 4:57 pm

I've come back to this photo trying to get it accepted - and I realize it's a stretch. The side/backlight is pretty strong, but I think it is worth trying to save. At least I can get some help from some of those more talented than I am!

This was rejected for Personal Message, Low Contrast, and Noise. Coming back to it with fresh eyes, I can see why.

I've re-uploaded with some tweaks to that end.

Is this salvagable?

Thanks for your time.

I am very sorry that it does look unsalvagable for me as the sunlight is what it is (Strong Backlit). Your latest version does look a little bit better that you've tried to make it brighter, but the noise on the body of the a.c becomes obvious, and the contrast becomes low in this case. Whole also looks soft. Sorry about that.

Thanks for your assessment! I tend to agree with you. I'm going to pull it from the queue and not waste your time with this one.
