      Images are all soft/blurry and noisy

        Thank you! Are these improved? And what is your opinion on the last two?

        The last one got rejected like this:
        Rejection Reason(s): - Over Processed / Bad postprocessing
        - Bad Color (Over/Under Saturation, Hue)
        after that I removed some of the saturation but I really don't know about the processing part. Prior to that it got rejected due to a halo around the top which I got rid of.

          All images soft/dark/noisy. Slight halos around the wing of the last one.

              Not significantly.

                I'm putting the first image aside for good, it's probably too blurry. And what are the rules regarding portrait shots?

                I would also like these four images to be pre-screened. I tried to make them sharp enough but I'm really not sure where the line between soft and oversharpened lies.

                Thank you so much!

                  Would this be closer to acceptable?

                    Not really, unfortunately.

                      I think you missed one of my replies/posts above. I don't want to waste your time by posting 20 versions of that Hawk. Do you think that it is not fixable?

                      Thanks

                        Yup, seems like it. I generally only have time to check the most recent post, so if you make multiple posts before I (or someone else) reply, good chance I will miss something.

                        1. contrast, borderline soft
                        2. borderline dark, but ok for me
                        3. vignetting
                        4. soft, vignetting
                        5. borderline dark/contrast/noisy

                        If you are working from a raw file, should be easy to remove halos. If you only have a jpeg, it will be near impossible.

                          2. Are the shadows/blacks too dark or is the whole image too dark? I might want to improve it.

                          3. Is this better?

                          4. Should be fixed?

                          5. Are the shadows/blacks too dark or is the whole image too dark? I remember reading on this forum that most contrast rejections are due to low contrast but is this the case here? The image seems quite high contrast to me.

                          So are the halos the only issue in the Hawk photo? I'm shooting .CR3 and using Adobe Lightroom but I'm really not sure how to get rid of them. They only appear when I make the edits that are necessary for the image to be otherwise okay. I would know how to remove them in Photoshop but that is image manipulation isn't it because the small part of sky around the wing would be fake.

                          I really appreciate your help, thanks!

                            1. overexposed, borderline contrast
                            3. overprocessed
                            4. soft, vignetting
                            5. harsh contrast

                              3. It's now in the middle between "vignette" and "overprocessed".

                              4. I tried to avoid the mistake I made with number three during vignette removal. It is visibly sharper now but is this enough?

                                1. still borderline. not going to comment on this one again.
                                3. minor vignetting visible, but would be ok for me.
                                4. ok for me.
