Hello, I took this picture a night when colours in the sky were crazy wonderful. The position of the plane, the hole in the clouds, the clouds forming a skull on the right are 100% real and not modified. I increased contrast but not so much (colours already were dense) and I played with exposure to make a light beam more apparent from the plane to the cloud hole.
This picture was rejected for artifact problem. What is the problem according to you ? How can I deal with it ?
Thanks a lot in advance,
I speculate: I suppose that there is a kind of automatic image analyses. I too have images that are judged to be great by humans but fall through by a classic automated accept/reject scenario.
I think it's a cool photo. View it at 100%, especially in the shadows of the clouds. How is the noise level? If it's moderate in your opinion go ahead and resubmit it for a secondary review. If you get warned for image spam on the resubmit, let them know I advised you to resubmit.
As for the speculation about bot reviews...nope, all humans all the time
Well, if review is done by humans, then I do not understand some of my rejects. But thanks for the clarification.
You should to investigate the inspector who rejected the photo of the year
I see too much noise on the "Photoshop splash screen" photo. (by Amr Elshamy)
