    Hi there

    I am still a little confused re the "Too much or too little contrast"

    eg https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=6184180

    Should I be just looking at the histogram? In this case it looks OK to me as I presume that we do not want to go too far at either end of the histogram.

    Any advice much appreciated.

    Cheers
    Mark

    Hi Mark,

    Thank you for using the forum for advice.
    It lacks highlights, and at the same time it has too strong shadows.

    In addition, there is a pretty visible dust spot below the fuselage.

      Thank you Simon - so I need to do more than just look at Histogram. I will work on the photo.

        Are either of these photos usable? A cloudy day and a dark aircraft. Needs more exposure but not sure of best way to achieve an image that will be accepted.
        Also, what category do I need to use other than Military?

        Thanks
        Mark

          You've uploaded thumbnail-sized images, but even so, the contrast doesn't look great and I doubt much can be done with them.

            Hi there

            I hope doing this correctly this time I have had a few contrast issues recently and I was wondering if one of the editing team would please take a look at the attached and if it is OK? If not any suggestions on how to improve much appreciated.

            TIA

              Yes, this would be rejected for contrast. The sky is very bright in the background, yet there is no direct light falling on the aircraft. This is not fixable.

              In the future, please attach your image directly to your post, like this:

                Thanks for the advice. I will see if I have one with better contrast in this series of photos or give it a miss this time

                  Hi there

                  Would you mind letting me know if this image is too dark or is the contrast correct. It looks OK on my histogram, but not always Ok on the JP histogram

                  Thanks

                    Less work if I don't have to click through several different pages.

                    Your image is a bit too dark, and unless you have been pre-approved, you won't be able to upload at 1920pix.
