Dear Paul Sir,

I got an Aero Logic shot rejected twice because it was over processed. In the 2nd edit, I had reduced the contrast, brightness and the exposure.

Here is the link to the 1st edit shot. http://images.focusonflight.net/2013/08 ... 289113.jpg

Please can you let me know where I'am going wrong interms of over editing.

Thanks and Regards,
Sreenivas.S

Hi Sreenivas,

The exposure is actually absolutely fine, the overprocessing is the fact there are light and dark halos visible around the aircraft. What steps are you taking when you edit? It's probably something in your workflow making them appear so it should be fairly easy to avoid once identified. :)

Hi Paul,

First of all, thanks for letting me know to post here regarding rejects.

I have this shot of SpiceJet rejected for Color. I would like to know what aspect of color looks wrong in this shot.

Thanks in advance for helping me.

Hi Sriram,

Basically there's a strong blue cast and this is causing the image to look quite dull. If you look at the right side of the histogram you can see a little gap indicating the image can be brightened more, you can also see how much more the blue channel is shifted to the right than green and red:

Image

Brightening isn't the answer though, correcting the colour is. This has had one small adjustment to lessen the blue cast (as you can see on the top 'Temperature' slider), and that one small adjustment has not only made the colour look more neutral but it's also meant the image is now actually slightly overexposed as the blue channel is brought down and red and green brought up:

Image

Accurate colour is a huge part of accurate exposure when shooting digital, and sometimes colour correction will correct under or overexposure without needing to make any other adjustments. In this case try working from the original, correcting the colour and not pushing the contrast quite so much, the results should be much more balanced than your original upload. :)

Paul

Hi Mario,

The dust spots are here, they're not hugely obvious but are just visible unequalised on my screen:

Image

There's also quite a strong blue cast which is actually more significant than the dust (which on it's own probably wouldn't cause a rejection). The right side here is more how the colour should look after correcting:

Image

On the 777, it just needs more general contrast. You can see gaps at the end of the histogram here...

Image

...Which close up after a small adjustment and the image looks a bit more bold:

Image


A tutorial on the histogram can be found here:

And a guide of how to use it to identify potential exposure problems can be found here:

Hello

I have a problem with a dust spot on one of my picture - i tried to fix the problem twice - but still not accepted. (Paul knows the problem, he asked me to upload here the "original" so the dust spot is still on the picture and i didn't tried to correct it in this picture)
it would be great if anybody can help me, how I can fix the dust-spot problem without make the picture worse than it is at the moment:

Image

thanks for your help

Hi Raphael, thanks for posting this here.

Here's an equalised version of the image you've posted here in the forums with the dust spot circled. This spot isn't really visible under normal circumstances so may not actually cause a rejection on it's own:

Image

Here are two versions of the image you uploaded where it seems you've tried to fix the spot, the only problem is in both there are clear traces of where a tool has been used to try get rid of it:

Image

Image

A badly fixed dust spot can be more of a problem than the dust spot was in the first place so it's important there be no trace if you remove them. Here's how it should look after fixing, with no evidence of anything being removed:

Image

When fixing dust sots what software and tool are you using? They're usually pretty easy to get rid of if using an appropriate tool. :)
