  • [OCFLT_OMGcat][Pre-Screening Advice]Rainy / Cloudy Day Editing

    Good afternoon guys,

    As I`m editing my past photos, I`d like some suggestions on these 5 since they are taken on rainy or cloudy days - I understand the light condition is generally poor but still wonder if I could have a stand. The lightness curve looks fine to me - both ends are above the axis but concerning dark / underexposed. Also, will grainy be a problem? In case of that, I`ve cropped them to 1280px yet I`m still not sure. Thanks for all suggestions!

    Kind regards

    Hi,

    for me the QR has a contrast problem, the DA is also very borderline for the same (probably you have another shot with a darker background?).
    LH, TK and AZ are acceptable for me, also the (g)rain in the last image should not be an big issue.

    Please keep in mind that especially for pictures taken in overcast conditions the decisions could be different with the final result.

    Stay safe!

    Best Regards from Germany,

      Hi Julian,

      Thanks for the advice and I do kinda feel the same way...Sadly it`s been going into the cloudy season in my home city and I feel like I will be away from good weathers for a while...

      Also do you think using Adobe RGB could be a problem versus sRGB?

      Thanks,

      Kind regards

        QR and DA are fixable probably as i sad. Watch out for a bit darker background and lighten up the whites a bit, that could be enough to make it acceptable.
        Bad weather will not lead automatically to a rejection so what can you loose?

        And yeah, better use sRGB so the colors will displayed correctly in the browsers.
