  • 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.

          Hello,
          I would like to ask for opinion on these shots - is the contrast and sharpness ok on all of them?
          Also, I got the taxiing LH A319 rejected some time ago for too little contrast (as I look at it now I absolutely agree with the rejection) but I corrected that and I'd like to know what you think about it now. Also, I'm not sure if the horizon is level on this one because there is little point of reference in the background.
          Thanks

            1) contrast
            2) contrast, soft
            3) OK
            4) soft, borderline underexposed

              1. soft/blurry, contrast, vignetting, dirty
              2. soft, contrast
              3. window reflection/glare
              4. contrast
