Default Can these be saved?

Had two rejected for poor lighting (dark). I have the RAW file for both but are they good enough for here?

I'd try giving them some shadows, especially on the second one. I'd be worried about blowing out the sky if you increased the brightness on the second one.

I would think you could fix those, but they might slap a "cloudy" on it... you never know

Chase - Not sure I follow you on giving them shadows. Are you referring to the shadow/highlight feature in Photoshop? Like you, I'm concerned about blowing out the sky.

Troy - I'd hope they'd overlook the cloudy day since this isn't something that can be redone based on the weather.

Thanks guys for the replies.

That's where layer masks come in.
