    Over or Underexposure?




      I just had my first couple of images rejected for over/underexposure issues. Somehow I cant see a serious problem with the attached picture. Thanks in advance for your feedback.

          It's to small to really have a good look at it, but I would guess the buildings in the bottom (particularly the left side) might be under a bit. It does seem quite dark. But, again, this is a tiny little thumbnail, so it's hard to tell.

            OK, well here is the full size image. They did not specify whether it is over or under exposed.

              I don't see any exposure problems there.

              Maybe they hit the wrong button and it's supposed to be something else. The only issues I can think of are intellectual property violations with the architecture (some high-rises have rules against selling images of their buildings).

                Well, perhaps one could argue the photo is a bit flat, so maybe bring some brightness into it. To me, overall it looks a little underexposed, so you could increase the exposure just a little bit, make the picture a bit brighter and try submitting again.

                  Personally what I would do is isolate the buildings from the sky, brighten and up the contrast on the buildings a little. Too much and it'll look weird. Then inverse the selection and reduce the exposure on the sky just enough to bring back a little more texture in the clouds. Happens to me a lot, the sky is too bright and I lose contrast / detail in the darker areas.


                  Love the photo though.
