Talking An New Rejection Reason!

Reason(s) for Rejection: - Overprocessed: The photo appears to suffer from either excessive use of a grain removal tool, leading to a washed out oil-painted look, or overuse of the shadow/highlight tool in Photoshop, which can give the image a 'fake' appearance and create halos around darker objects.

Well, it is overprocessed, but could they have been any more long-winded in their explanation? Reading that is like a bad homework assignment...

I think that reason has been around for ahwile - just doesn't get used enough.

As for the long winded explanation - kudos. PEQ is so hard to figure out otherwise.
Maybe we can expect the same for rule of thirds explanations and unlevel rejections?

As for the image - let me say instead - it sure is cold and blue.
Looks a bit like it was printed on aluminum. Maybe a bit oversharpened? Not sure.

It is an HDR.

Yeah that rejection reason has been around for a while. Got that reason a few times over the past few months

An old rejection reason, used properly this time.

Not a fan, sorry.

What's up with that switch on the right, though? It looks like it's placed half-way between the normal and reversed positions?

Not a true HDR as I only used a single exposure.


The switch is in the middle because it is not locked in place and kids play with it.

Then is isn't HDR at all and definitely deserves the rejection it got.

And now for bonus points, give us a rundown on your definition of an HDR, because that was last weeks pissing contest.

What they all say:

Well since you all hate my picture, and "I" really like it and can't figure out why it got rejected because it is so absolutely awesome (and because 17 people on another site said they like it) so, "I will keep it for my own collection" (whatever the heck that means).

Don't feel like getting in a pissing match, not a fan of HDR images in general, not a fan of "faux dr" in particular.

Fair enough.

I like some HDRs, and was just messing around with this one.

I don't know what you did with it, but while I don't much care for many HDRs, this one is only slightly overdone. What I wonder about is what you did to the ballast and overall to give it that oversharpened-but-not-really sort of weird sizzle. Sorry but I can't come up with more descriptive or useful terms.

It is ok if you don't like HDRs, as they are not, or were not main stream in the film days.

You could produce the same effects, but it was much harder and less selective.

As to how you make it sizzle - there are a number of sliders and adjustments that can be done to produce any number of looks.

Additionally, had I actually bracketed some shots (I didn't have a tripod and the freehand versions look like crap) then that would have allowed some additional tweaking.

There are a lot more options with HDR.

My liking or disliking of HDRs is unrelated to having been around during the film days to take rotten shots that would never made RP even with vintage latitude.

Are you suggesting that there is more than one definition of HDR?

Yup.

The message you have entered is too short. Please lengthen your message to at least 10 characters.
