    Hello everyone! I need some help about contrast rejections. I couldn't understand the way how it works so I'm asking here. I have 3 photos rejected because of contrast problems. Can you help me to how to set "true" contrast. Thanks!

    No direct light/overcast skies and a bright background will always be very difficult to get accepted. You can try playing around with the levels with new edits, but honestly the easiest thing to have a better chance at acceptance would be to try again with different images with better light conditions. Of these three, only the second one looks fixable, imho.

    Got it but what I mean to say is how can you understand the problem? I can't cause I don't know the problem. I read the guideline but that doesn't make sense to me. What's the criteria? Please don't get me wrong, I'm just trying to learn your upload standarts. Secondly, you said second one can be fixable. What's the solution for that? Thanks again and sorry for taking your time!

    Hi. I'm not a screener but I can give you some advice on how to get good contrast. I don't know what time of the day you shot your photos or which direction you were looking but the easiest way would be to shoot with the sun behind you which would allow you to get good contrast. As the screener has pointed out, the likely issue with your photos is that you shot them in poor light conditions, likely on an overcast day with no direct light, which makes it difficult to get good contrast.

    The second image does indeed look fixable. You can do that in the program you use to edit your photos by increasing the contrast with the contrast slider. You don't need to increase by much. Just enough to get a bit more shadow under the aircraft's fuselage and the wings while the rest remains relatively bright.

    Hope my input helps. All the best.

    The criterium in this case is the aircraft should not look washed out against the sky as they do in your images. Better weather conditions should yield better results.

    I agree with the above comments from previous posters. When I first started with aviation photography (5+ years ago) contrast was something which I found rather difficult. As previous posters have stated, photographing in better weather conditions with the sun behind you will greatly improve the quality and lighting of the photographs. In my opinion the first and secoand photographs are looking to be the better attempts, however, will still need "fixing". If you are using photoshop there is a good addin from Google called "Nik Collection" (free) which contains some very good tools to improve the image. Also if you are not already, take your photographs in RAW mode insted of JPEG as RAW retains more image data than JPEG.

    Hope I have helped

    Backlit, soft, lacking contrast (dull aircraft, pitch black shadows lacking details, washed out background)

    Both would be rejected for soft, and possible contrast.

    Borderline for (low) contrast.

    - Virgin's tail looks abit blur and soft
    - Is there like a flare or some kind of window glare on the A320? im not sure if that's acceptable

    this is based on my own opinions though, im not sure if its credible enough.

    1. Virgin looks a little dark and is soft/blurry around the flightdeck and the tail fin

    2. The A 320 aircraft looks a little soft and perhaps a little over processed, the glare is causing problems to the edge of the logo

    Thanks for the replies, unfortunately I don't have another shot of the 787 but for 320, I do.
    Can you also check this, thanks. If there is a problem, please also inform if it's fixable.

    hello,
    Shadow shows the picture is actually backlit so no, I'm afraid it's not fixable

    Regards
    Alex
