  • Sander in West-Africa | screening requests

    hi!
    Taking pictures through windows is cahllenging, especially when they are coloured. Pictures below were taken around 4pm with warm colors in a tropical environment.
    Below is an example that I corrected but it was rejected three times for "Bad Color, over/under saturation, Hue". Any advice on what i shoudl correct to make it accepted in the JP data base?
    thanks a lot!!

      Fiddle with the colour balance and then in photoshop bring up levels tab and then click the left dropper which is your white balance. Click on a white part of the aircraft and that should help you.

          Is this now acceptable?

            Dark/contrast, and some compression/oversharpening issues.

              Based in Accra, Ghana, but travelling around Africa, I am taking pictures whenever I can. Not easy, with often difficult light conditions (high humidity, dust) and nasty officials ("are you a journalist?" and "where's your permit?")

              I want to submit the pictures below and your advice is appreciated!

                I've merged your threads, but in the future please post new questions/requests here, or they will simply be deleted

                We understand that some situations may make it more difficult to allow images to be taken so we try to balance rarity vs. quality, but we can only be lenient up to a certain point. That said, I wouldn't let the rejections bother you - I, personally at least, would appreciate seeing you continue to (attempt) uploads from where you do - as long as you keep my previous point in mind.

                1. borderline contrast/vignetting
                2. blurry, soft, contrast
                3. dark, borderline motive/crop. better without people/person in foreground

                  Thanks for the encouragement! Meanwhile, I found a better picture for the airport in Douala, a beautiful 70s construction and still fucntional. The picture was taken just 10-15 minutes before sunset and am struggling with contrast. Let me know if this is good or whether i need to increase or decrease contrast. thanks again

                    This would be fine for me, given the rarity/quality balance I mentioned earlier.

                      Would any of these two do, especially with regard to sharpness? 5N-CAB is not yet in the JP data base. Thanks again!

                        Unfortunately a bit too soft/blurry.

                              I cam across some pictures from the Terminal in Abuja, Nigeria. Would any of these two stand a chance?
