View Full Version : Help With High Sun

07-12-2006, 08:42 PM
I was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions on how to get photo's accepted that are taken on sunny days. I live in the east and we have a lot of sunny days and when i send in a photo I get the sun to high message. I would hope there is a way to solve the issue through processing or maybe by taking the photo from higher up. Just looking for some help I have also attached a example.

For a high sun shot, yours doesn't look too bad at first glance. It looks like you punched up the saturation quite a bit, but you were really heavy with the sharpening. You can see a border around everything.

A high angle will improve a mid day shot, but it still may not make it acceptable. The real solution is simply to shoot after 3PM or before 11AM in the summer. Use the time in between to scout out new locations. That still leaves you four or five hours of shooting in the morning and four or five in the afternoon!
