The horizon is not sharp, but this is due to the turbulence betwen hot sea and cold air during the storm, and not a problem of the photo . Do you see something more ? Thanks
You might try neutralizing the white balance and attempt to re-submit.
Unfortunately, difficult lighting conditions due to storms or other factors are not considered by Stock reviewers. All photos are judged by the same criteria regardless of conditions, equipment, or other challenges.
Better luck next time!
Thanks Nancy. I was an old contributor to fotolia but stopped to upload for a (long) while.
Now, I try again with adobestock which seems to accept different topics,
but probably there is a selection filter which refuses this type of photo whatever are the shooting conditions.
Looking at the photo at 100 - 200%, it does seem quite noisy. I would clone out the birds as well because right now they just look like artifact spots above the horizon.
I use "prime" for denoising, but good idea for birds that look like artifacts
Nice photo. The water is underexposed. The sky is a little noisy. The birds need to be removed. There is one spot that has been corrected however can stilll be seen. and there is fringing (halo) everywhere.
Thank Ralph.The water was very dark, it was raining except behing the horizon . Too much fringing...
I see aliasing, like with an over sharpened picture. Your horizon looks razor sharp to me, and your remark lets me think that you pushed the boundaries too much.
With Prime, you mean DXO's denoising technology?
FYI: all pictures are reviewed by humans, but sure, the quality requirements are more stringent than at the time as the technology (both hardware and software) gets better.
Hi Alambo. You are right, I see this photo like a paint or a drawing and over pushed the cursor... And yes I use Prime DXO's denoising.
