    I have an earlier shot that was taken with aperture priority rather than shutter, should be sharper. I've been staring at this screen for so long now I can't tell.

    Though not quite as bad, this image is also soft (among other issues).

    Hi all,

    another one here, let's see if I'm learning from this feedback. Personally I think this will be rejected for soft (especially around the nose) and blurry. was shot with aperture priority so it must have used 1/125 shutter speed to compensate.

    Like I say, not one I intend on submitting, just looking to see if I am picking up on points.

    Thanks

    Yes, this is soft. Also suffering from poor contrast and compression.

    Always save at the highest possible quality setting, in this case presumably 100%

    Makes sense, only reason I have not in the past was having read some articles about lightroom editing that said the difference between 75% and 100% would be a negligible difference in quality, but with the bonus of having a smaller file.

    I'll ignore that going forward then.

    Any improvement to be seen here? I've re-exported from the original to preserve quality and eliminate compression. Also added some additional contrast and sharpening.

    Like you've suggested in the past, weather and light conditions were far from ideal, so I think you'll agree that if this is still below par then realistically it's the end of the line for this one.

    This would be rejected for soft and contrast. Probably best to move on.

    Hi Guys,

    I've got three here, but only looking to use one of them. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

    Please select one, otherwise a similar rejection would apply.

    I understand that, I have no intention on submitting all three of them. Was looking for opinion as to whether one was more suited than another. My preferred image is

    1. soft, centering, horizon, color, dark/contrast
    2. centering, dark/contrast

    Contrast is too harsh for both, and they are borderline similar as well.

    Thank you, sounds like the first to me is a lost cause. Have redone the second, hopefully the contrast is acceptable now, I've tried to improve the centering, but due to the original shot I don't have much wiggle room. Is it borderline or way off? I know you have a tool that can check when it is in the queue, can this be accessed without uploading the photo? Or should I just continue to aim to have the windowline in the centre of the frame?
