Its my first time posting on this forum.

This photo is about an attempt to show how polluted is the air in Santiago Chile. The photo could have been much better on some technical aspects, I know --it might not even be accepted-- but it does the job showing the smog layer over the city.

I would love to read your comments, before attempting to upload it.

Thankyou so much.

It won't pass because of artefacts like this: They are not correctable. These artefacts happen with small sensor cameras like in phones with the in camera postprocessing.  (edit) If you get an acceptance don't go back and delete except if you have a very good reason for doing so. But I doubt that the picture gets accepted.

Thank you.

Hi @Ruben CL ,

I'm not sure about producing contrast photographing pollution. That tend to be more inclined to fogy grey. What I think you need more of is exposure, and probably white balance. Looking at the tree at the right corner, you have some harsh shadows there. I am not sure, but possibly your depth of field could be better also. However, if it is accepted I suggest you let it remain. Sometimes resubmission of what was accepted gets rejected.

I agree with @Abambo . Either you or the camera has done a lot of noise reduction, or you took it on a smartphone. The noise reduction has made the photo look like a painting when you zoom close up, as in Abambo's example. Detail is lacking here.

Thank you @ricky336 for reviewing the photo. It was actually taken with a camera, but a semi profesional camera not a profesional one so the small sensor could be causing the problem.

 

Nevertheless, and it might not be relevant, I thought it could still be interesting to upload it since the photo pretends to capture the smog layer, therefore other areas of the image with technical issues could be ignored if used for environmental, educacional purposes. The smog is the main subject.. But I do believe that all of your comments (comments from @Ralph Lear , @jacquelingphoto2017 , @Abambo & yours) are correct regarding the other general details and I greatly appreciate them all.

 

Again, thank you so much.
