  • Prescreening request / editing advice - Kuba Kawczynski

    Hi, today I got my two winter photos rejected for poor contrast. Since I have no experience with photos in snowy scenery (and I think this affects the histogram and hence the perception of contrast), I wanted to ask about these two pictures (they have much more contrast than the two rejected ones) - is the contrast in these two sufficient or if not, is there anything I can do to them to get them accepted?
    Thanks,
    Kuba

    It's not the snow that's causing the problems, it's the overcast/very cloudy sky. Your results would have been no better if there hadn't been any snow on the ground. Not much you can do about that, I'm afraid.

      Hello, I have another question about a photo with snow - my concerns are about contrast (I think it might be a bit too low, but on the other hand the engines seem a bit dark) and if the photo is not too dark (but then when I add exposure to it, the shadows go up as well). I think the situation is a bit better than with the previous pictures as the light was better.
      Thanks!

        Yes, contrast is poor in this one as well. Harsh shadows + dull (overcast) light is not the best combination.
