    Default too much or too little?

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=6122531

    If I though this photo needed contrast correction, I probably would fix it before submitting.

    It was taken in RAW so correction is possible, but I don't know if it's too much or too little.
    I there a tool that I can use to determine the right contrast?

    The histogram shows missing dark tones. Which processing software are you using ?
    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

    Hi,
    I'm using the Nikon Capture NX-D. Here is the same photo, after correcting the dark tones. I like it less than the one I submittedClick image for larger version.

    Both would be acceptable for me, but the second version does look better.

    Thanks!
    I'll wait until my queue is released, and resubmit.
    I have a limit of 5 (?) photos in the queue.

    You should have 10, unless they updated the policy? It's been a while since I uploaded that many in one shot haha

    The second photo does look better, but I personally feel it's a bit soft and underexposed. At least that's what I'll get from the screeners when I submit.
