    Once again, thank you. I'll try stay away from that, definitely don't want to get in any trouble here.

    I've also re-edited another picture of N931WN, would appreciate a pre-screen on this. I've made sure to not touch highlights shadows, vibrance, or clarity, as well as checking the image with the "check for dust" tool, hopefully no overproccesing editing halos
    Soft, noisy, and some compression visible.

      I've noticed on some of my pictures that I seem to have editing halos, without even editing (much). I've attached a .jpg where I noticed this that I took right from a raw file from Lightroom and have not edited much, only a crop, contrast, and white/black and I believe it has a few halos, specifically around the tail (I checked with the check for dust tool) and I wanted to ask if there was anything I could do to prevent this? I do understand this specific image is very soft/blurry, noisy, and has an incredible amount of chromatic aberration, however I don't really see a reason why I should have halos. For context I'm using a Canon, so I don't have the Nikon D-Lighting setting I've heard causes halos and apart from the light edit I mentioned, no other changes have been made. In all likeliness I'm probably missing something and would greatly appreciate any help here

        Is that a heavy crop? Could simply be how compression is affecting glare coming off that part of the aircraft. Otherwise it could be any number of settings that you may not realise since they are set as default: shadow/highlight, clarity, vibrance, etc.

          It was a fairly heavy crop, however I went back to this raw file and exported it without the crop, and there still seems to be some editing halos present. (1st attachment)

          I decided to clear out my Lightroom catalog and reset all the preferences and import just that raw file and see if it was present even without anything, it still seems that there are some editing halos. (2nd attachment).

          I've gone through and doubled checked that all sliders are at zero and are off, as well as making sure all check boxes are off, the 2nd attatchment should essentially just be a .jpg straight from the raw file with no edits. I've not noticed this on all images, but there doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason why some pictures have halos, and some do not.

          Edit : I realized now that the images I attached below were sized badly, I do apologize for that, but the halos should still be visible, especially around the tail.

            In that case, I think my initial assessment is the most likely explanation - a combination of natural glare and compression.

              Are crops like this acceptable? I've tried to emphasis the clouds here, not sure if it's acceptable under rule 3.1 in the Upload Guidelines.

                Nothing special/unique about the clouds here. Would be rejected for Too Far.

                  Again, would appreciate a prescreen on these two. Personally I think the last is too dark, however I can't really push the whites up without blowing out the sky so I may just have to bin it although I may be wrong about that, so looking for advice

                    First is a touch soft but otherwise would be ok for me. Second would be rejected for dark/contrast and is indeed not fixable.

                      Thank you. Can I please get a prescreen on these? I just caught a break in the clouds on an overcast day, so I hope contrast is fine Click image for larger version

                        Would be ok for me.

                          Can I please get a prescreen on these photos. Also wanted to ask, what is the best format for me to add photos here to this post, should I leave my images as attachements or should I add them onto the post like I have below?

                            1. not uploadable
                            2. soft
                            3. soft, borderline overprocessed
                            4. soft, dark
                            5. soft

                            Format is fine, just make sure they are actually uploadable, and that you have permission for 1920pix uploads. Even if you have received such permission, I would strongly advise you to avoid uploading at 1920pix since acceptance rates are much lower for that resolution.

                              Huge facepalm moment, I did both a 1920pix and 1280pix edit and got the folders confused so I have accidentally uploaded the wrong size. I have a few more that I will upload in 24 hours to stay within the rules ... hopefully at the right size

                              Thank you for your help
