    Dana - a question - I am guessing from raw/dng to 16-bit TIFF right?
    Yes, RAW -> 16-bit TIFF -> editing -> downsizing (usually 1600pix for me) -> convert to 8-bit -> save as jpeg -> upload.

    As I said, a bit cumbersome, so only done on certain images. Otherwise, much simpler RAW -> 8-bit jpeg -> editing -> downsize -> upload.

    It's the 16-bit vs. 8-bit that makes the difference.

    https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10676481 -> subtle shift in brightness in the sky, so started with a 16-bit TIFF

    https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10652851 -> uniform color/brightness in sky, so straight to jpeg

      • Hello,

        thank you all for explanation and discussion. Unfortunately, rejected photos were shot direct to jpg, so I guess nothing I can do with them. I have made one more edit of ATR attached below, but I expect it is not better as rejected one.

          There is some blotchiness/compression visible, yes.

          • Hi,

            I have received this reject for Noise/grain:

            https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=10472541

            In what areas of photo is noise visible? Will selective noise reduction help in this case?

              Borderline for me, but enough for a rejection for the two screeners who screened it. Not much chance of a successful appeal.

                I think that it is ok, as intentions of this question were to find noise areas, reprocess and queue again.

                However, I think problem was related to sky area, so I have applied some more noise reduction filter there. Can you prescreen new edit attached below?

                Thank you.

                  Sorry, I think I meant to post that reply in a different thread..though I think it mostly applies here. Wouldn't have been a rejection for me, but I can kind of see why it might have been for someone else. Newer version slightly soft, but also ok for me.
