    Default Histogram query

    Do any of the histograms below show sufficient overexposure to warrant rejection? Thank you very much.

    I'm not a screener but I'd say two and three are your best shots at an acceptable exposure. However, it does depend on the photo. If it looks uncomfortably bright, center it on a different bulge that will allow you to reduce the exposure a bit. Seeing the actual photos would also help a judgement in the future.

    Hi Michael Thank you for your input. Are you saying the second from left is better exposed than the first from left?

    The one on the far right and the one in the middle look the best. I don't notice anything really contributing to an overexposure rejection in the histogram though.

    Just to make it clear: we do screen photos, not histograms. The histogram is only used for a further check. The histogram alone may show clipped highlights or shadows, yet the photo looks OK, or vice versa.

    None of those show anything that would immediately make me think there might be an issue with overexposure, but as Geri said, images are screened, not histograms, so without seeing the image in question, there is not much point in speculating.

    Thank you for your response. I understand you screen photos. I posted the histograms because histograms are referred to in an overexposure rejection so I thought they were essential and decisive in this case.

    Thank you very much Sir for taking the time to advise me on this.
