It's NOT composition, saturation, cropping, angle, lighting, etc...

It's more camera quality, spec's, megapixels, things of that nature.

I think that's what you are asking, anyway.

The technical quality means the actually quality of the image, not, for example esthetic quality, etc. For example, you might get technical quality will also mean grain, compression, exposure all combined. You will normally get poor image quality if.....



1.) You shoot at a high ISO speed, resulting in grain, or noise.

2.) You shoot JPEG, or save it as a JPEG after cropping heavily. I hope you know why.

3.)You resize it dramatically from its original size (i.e from 1600x1200 to 150x190).

4.)You sharpen it too much.


Hope this helped. I would attach some examples but I don't think they would help...

Okay thanks... Here is the picture as per request.



I was just curious, I shoot here from time to time. With 1202 @ 1.42L its not as fun to drive down the highway 20-40 miles to get a different angle/etc. Hoping that H20 engine comes quick haha :P

Sometimes tech quality refers to things like the dirt at the 2 o'clock position above the 2nd locomotive. Clone it out and check for others.

Is this a scanned picture?

It almost seems underexposed.....I am not seeing the poor image quality, except for the dirt mentioned by Northern Limits. I also see some small deposits of noise in the rail. But, that is all I see.

Good luck with it, maybe make an appeal? Perhaps the screener made a mistake, clicked on the worng box or something..


Also, perhaps I am not on the same page as rthe rest of you, but, what is this 'H20' engine in mention?
