I personally think rather white balance and exposure which is a problem in all of them apart from the sharpening. And in the 2nd photo exposure could be a problem as well because of the sun being burnt out.

Hello,

It looks like that you used special effect filters to get this effect. It seems that Adobe do not like contributors to use special effect filters, as the buyer can alter the image to their needs and if there is an effect filter applied, they cannot change the image easily. So, it is best to keep more natural colours.

Here, at first glance your white balance is out of whack. Also, it just may be that in your 2nd sunset shot the sun is too burnt out so, the moderator may have been thinking about these things.

No filter was used, settings-F/18-1/500 IS0 200 for the silhouette shots,  i did have to bring my highlights and whites all the way down to get the sun light down from over taking the scene, what gets me is that other shots from that same shoot before and after those , were accepted with all the same settings

By using filters I mean in post processing - because the sky in the bridge shot is uneven in lighting as if you used the graduate filter:

Downtown+through+the+bridge_unevenlighting.jpg

and your colours are off in the sunset shots and the bridge shot - hence your white balance problem. As far as the halos are concerned, it means that you oversharpened your pictures - and I think they look rather oversharpened. It can be seen on the edge of the cliff as well.

Perhaps your settings for WB on your camera were set wrong.

I think your contrast is also rather high.

Look at the high contrast borders. You will see a strange halo. That's a major fault.

On the shots of the people in silhouette and the rocks the sun crated a shine on the right side , viewing at 1:1 you can see that even if you go to a 3:1 view but its not on the left side and my sharpen is very moderate ,you don't think that the halo effect from sharpen tool would be all through out the scene ,I wish they would point out there reasons ,thank you very much for your input really helpful
