  • (marfi80) - editing advice

    Hello everyone,

    I got one picture rejected because of Over Processed / Bad postprocessing and because of JPG compression artefacts (see link and picture below).

    I'd like to learn more about those JPG compression artefacts. As I'm rather new here, any advice is much appreciated - I got some pictures accepted, others rejected for different reasons, but those compression artefacts are rather new to me. In particular it would be great to know where in this picture JPG compression artefacts are visible so I can try my best to avoid them in the future.

    Thanks much in advance,
    marfi80

    Don't see compression as an issue, but there are editing halos visible on the treeline as you seem to have darkened the sky unnaturally.

        Hello everyone,

        I have some beginner question about pictures taken at rather bad light conditions.
        The picture below might serve as an example. I tried my very best (I feel more would be overprocessing), but it was still rejected due to Dark/Underexposed, which I can completely understand.

        Question: Is there any good editing approach to make pictures like this acceptable?
        Or is the better approach simply to stay in bed and wait for better light conditions the next day?

          Best is of course to select a day with good light for photography. Anyway, this rejection is rather harsh IMHO.

            Bro! The main problem of yours is that you are shooting in jpeg this you are getting jpeg compression artifacts. Shooting in RAW gives you with much more information to edit your shot. You really should shoot in RAW .

              Hi everyone,

              one question about vignetting: Is there any way how to practically avoid this?
              I am a little puzzled about one rejection for that reason (see below). My feeling is that it's just a cloud pattern, which might have led to a rejection due to vignetting. Or do I miss something I could have really avoided during taking/editing the picture?

              Thanks for any hint.

              Best,
              marfi80

                There's a bit of darkening in the corners, but yeah, mostly just clouds in this case I think.

                  Hello there,

                  can somebody please so kind to pre-screen the picture below?
                  It's the only shot I got from this aircraft and I wonder whether it has any chance for acceptance, in particular because of contrast and/or soft. If there's no chance, I'll just keep it for my personal record.

                  Thanks in advance and best,

                    Yes, unfortunately the tail is quite soft, almost blurry. No chance for this version at least, to be accepted.
