  • Rejection - Editing help

    Hello Everyone,

    i need some help fixing this image.

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewreject_b.php?id=7416982

    - Bad Framing
    - Color

    i do understand the colour seems to be off, its my second rejection on this photo and Iím stumped on how to bring it to the right colours.

    i thought the framing is OK, looks to be centred. Or am I missing something.

    Thanks

    Hi, I’m not a screener or anything but the photo does look to have a greenish/blueish tint on it which could be fixed using the tint and/or temperature sliders in Lightroom. And the crop, the aircraft is too low in frame so moving the aircraft up a bit to where the fuselage is in the middle will do it.

      Looks like shot through terminal glass. White balance adjustment will be needed to remove cyan/magenta hue. Aircraft is slightly low in the frame.

        Thanks for the feedback everyone.

        I did remove the cast in photoshop elements but looks as it didn’t do that great of a job.

        I’ll try to re-edit and submit for pre screen.

          How is the colour looking now?

          I rather get the colour fixed first before I edit.

            One suggestion I might make - your white balance temperature might be too high which is giving the yellowish cast to the picture - try dropping it some to make the picture a little colder. I typically have my white balance between 5200-5500K but that is with my camera and lens setup. You're going to need to experiment.

                Still a bit yellow/green.

                You need to do it manually/by eye; I doubt any preset will be able to get it right.

                  Sigh, should I add a bit more magenta? I feel I’m lost on this one.

                    Does your editing software just let you set WB by selecting a white/grey area of the image?

                        Is the issue still present even after doing that?

                          Wel it does correct it and that was my first rejection.

                          Looks as it didn’t do the job. I’m hoping if someone can show by correcting the colour and seeing what I should be aiming for.

                            I opened in RawTherapee and scrolled around the midtones of the fuselage (the greyish areas), the G and B channels were showing consistently higher than R. I did the picking point WB on a spot in the same area and the following is the result. Warmer and more magenta. So it did a different take from the Adobe programs, which is not surprising since just clicking in a few different spots would produce slightly different results even within the same software.

                            I do not know if this is the ideal white balance for this image. It seems that more saturation would be beneficial as well. All I can say with certainty is that it's complicated.

                              Lol

                              Thanks for the efforts, it does look a bit better.

                              Shooting from a tint glass I didn’t expect it to be this complicated.

                              I have many shots accepted shooting behind the glass but like you said, this one is a bit tricky lol
