  • Again the problem of: Too much or too little contrast

    This photo is rejected bedcause of: Too much or too little contrast

    When I look at the histogram, they look fine to me.

    This reason of rejection depends of which screener the photos is screening, so it seems.

    What is your opinion?

    The photo:

    It needs a little more contrast.. It simply looks flat.

    I had a little look at the photo in PS and, you first you can adjust the darks a little bit, but normally much more important to get the contrast right is to adjust the curves.

    To get the contrast right I normally wouldn`t look at the histogram, that is something you should view with the entire picture..

    Hope this helps!

      You simply need to take more time post processing Paul,
      A lot of your stuff is extremely soft , or extremely contrasty. Best way around this is to calibrate your monitor properly and use Jid's workflow for info on using the curves side of things.

        What screen do you use Paul ? I agree with Will, if you see this pic well contrasted you really need to check your screen.

          As i said in your appeal 'add more contrast'. Not sure why you needed to post a thread about it, but whatever lol.
