    I am in the process of re-working my workflow and the shadow/highlight feature of CS will not be in the revised version.

    How you process your photo by using his workflow is beyond his control.

    Common sense is also something to consider when editing. At the end of the day its down to you as to what levels of editing you choose to work at. We are not held responsible for promoting bad editing. If you use the tools correctly in Photoshop you shouldn’t get an over use rejection.

    It's allowed to a certain extent. The shadow/highlight feature is one of those functions, which works wonders, but can easily kill a photo if overused.

    What I notice in your photo is, the weird shade of the fuselage. It's not 100% white. I get this effect if I apply too much shadow/highlight in PS.

    Instead of the shadow/highlight, I'd strongly suggest you try to tweak the curves. You can get the same result but you have more control over the photo.

    Well, you can use that function, but if you create visible halos with it, then you have over-processed the pic.
    I personaly prefer using curves, as they achieve the same, while not creating halos.

    Perhaps I did use shadow/highlight actually which could have caused this but then therefore if this type of editing is not allowed why is it promoted? Or is it only allowed to a certain extent?

    Cheers Dom

    You might have used the shadow/highlight tool ?

    I didn't screen the photo, but there is white halos around the top of the lightpoles and on the top of the building to the left. There is also a dark shadow/halo running along side the top of the fuselage. And that is why it got the - Over Processed / Bad postprocessing rejection. So I guess its not that stupid after all!

    Have you considered that the halos are the reason for the reject. You can clearly spot the difference between the uploaded pic and the original, when you look at the head of the lamp post. Original fine, upload has some light halos.
    There is also a viisble halo around parts of the plane.

    Taken from the new upload guidelines....

    Overprocessed
    This rejection may apply to photos which simply look overprocessed. This can be for example an improper use of noise removal programs up to the result of getting a plastic like look or smufgy edges. Also, halos caused by wrong sharpening settings or other wrong post processing settings, will result in a rejection.
    Personally the photo doesn't look too bad to me

    Anyway hope that helps

    Hi Dominic,

    i'm not sure, but maybe the grass gave you the rejection. It looks
    pretty weird at some points. Did you clone anything out? Or maybe
    a bit too much NeatImage?
