View Full Version : Repairing Compression

02-17-2004, 05:31 AM
The following photo was rejected for having too much compression, did I oversharpen?


I think it is a nice shot. The blur above the fireman's side is part of the exhaust I believe. I still have the raw file, is it worth starting over with sharpening, etc. and resubmitting? This was a movement of coal to Brown out of Cincy instead of off the EK.

Thanks in advance for suggestions. :)

It appears as if you are trying to push the limitations of your digital camera in regards to size. If that image were closer to 800pixels wide, the loss of quality would be much less noticable.

If you sharpened it, it didn't help...but trying to make that image 1024 wide is probably the biggest problem. Resize down to about 800 or 850 pixels wide and it should look quite a bit better.

Thanks Chris,

Yes, I did have the Camera set on the highest size and quality setting. I may try to resize and play with the raw file a little bit and resubmit. Thank you for your advice.
