Hi there

The above title sums up my post and could anyone tell me what exactly over-processing is and how could I edit the rejected photo to avoid this?

Thanks

It can be loads of things, too much noise reduction, overuse of the Shadow/Highlight tool, etc. It really depends on the individual case, there's no single answer. In the case of the images you just had rejected there were horizontal light lines running through the frame, I have no idea what could cause this but something in your workflow is making them appear. Your images also generally lack clarity like you're doing too much to them in editing. Maybe too much noise reduction and then applying too much sharpening to try make up for the lost detail (which never works well).

Can you post an original version of one of the shots you just had rejected so we can take a closer look?

Hi Paul many,many thanks for your tips and advice mate.

Yeah I think I use too much noise reduction when I edit my pictures

Can you post a version as it came out of the camera full size without any editing rather than a resized version? We need to see the starting point to figure out what's going on.

Hi Paul,

The dust can be seen in this equalised image. For the sake of ease it would be great if you used our dedicated Rejections thread for such questions rather than someone else's dedicated thread, it makes things much easier to keep track of!

Hi Paul
I understand the reason rejected: "dusk" not quite. Because if you normally look at the picture then looks absolutely NOBODY because Dusk. Only if you change the image you see as dusk otherwise NOT! Especially no one goes to the page and "copy" this picture so he can look at the picture that way. This is my opinion!

Paul, I could see the top dust spot quite clearly on the normal image and that was the reason for the dust rejection, I pointed out the lower one just to make you aware it was there. The lower one wouldn't have caused a rejection on it's own but unfortunately we can't accept images with visible dust spots, they're very easy to fix.

If you do need any further advice on locating and fixing dust spots then please create a new thread and we'll help as much as we can.

Paul
