    I have a little question about a photo of mine that got rejected.


    In addition to the too intrusive watermark (my mistake, I ask if I can modify it on the photos in the queue to avoid rejections due to the same mistake), it was rejected for Bad Color (Over / Under Saturation, Hue). In this case is it too saturated or too little saturated? Because in post editing I did not touch the saturation settings and therefore it is the "original" one of the photo.

    For the second photo I totally agree that it's Dark / Underexposed, Undersharpened (Soft) and Too much or too little contrast. On the fact that part of aircraft are cut off, how can I cut it better? My intention was precisely to film the first officer saluting out the window as I have seen in some other photos uploaded. Obviously I attach the non-cropped photo. Thanks so much in advance for the advice

      White balance is too warm. Very strong yellow cast on the image. Tail is also somewhat blurry, and though this wasn't mentioned on the original rejection, it may be an issue if re-submitted.

      Don't think this is fixable. Not only is the light very poor, but there is no way to crop it acceptably without getting part of the fence in the frame.

        Ok, thank you!

        I imagined it, since the fence is too invasive. To improve in the future I would like to understand why the crop I did is not correct. My intention was to emphasize the first officer's greeting (as I indicated in the notes). Should I include the next one in the photo only the front? Would it be an acceptable crop in that case?

          You'd probably want to get it more directly side-on.

            Ok, thanks for the advice.


            Can I have your opinion on this photo? Thank you!

              Likely to be rejected for overprocessed.

                  Not really. Editing halos still visible.

                    Now better? In post editing I added a minimum of contrast and a minimum of sharpness, nothing else.

                    I also ask for an opinion on this rejection, ok for overprocessed, but on the little contrast and undersharpen what do you think?

                      Sharpening is ok for me, but contrast is borderline weak, and again editing halos visible.

                        This is the unprocessed photo (I just opened the shadows a bit). In my opinion it is a little poor in sharpness and contrast, what do you think? It doesn't turn out to be overprocessed right?

                        What mainly causes halos in the post-processing phase? What do you advise me to avoid them in the future? Thanks so much

                          Strong editing halos are visible.

                          'Opening' the shadows can definitely cause them, so..

                            This is completely unprocessed, I haven't touched anything. For me it remains a bit poor in sharpness and perhaps contrast, what do you think? Now there should be no more halo.

                              Indeed, there are no longer and editing halos visible.

                                Great, but what do you think of the other parameters?
