/"This image appears to be over-filtered/over-processed which has affected the image quality. This may include Photoshop filters & effects (over-sharpening, excessive adjustments to levels, curves, contrast, hues, gaussian blurs, saturation, added textures, noise reduction...) or other manipulations. We feel the image would have more value to designers with minimal or no post processing effects so that the designers could add their own post-processing effects. Some images can benefit from minor touch-ups to grab the viewer?s attention and there is no definitive line to what editing makes or breaks a great image but the end result should be a single image that can still be molded into a design. Inspectors judge images based on quality, composition and usability."


What to do with this picture. A little work I put into it ...

We can't see properly without link to a full size (watermarked) image as per the guide here.


A crop isn't the same.


As I said in your previous thread about the lightbulbs: To be accepted here these things need to look as if they were real no matter how impossible that would be.


There's something about the chasms or rifts that have been caused by the "impact" that doesn't look quite right to me from the crop you have provided. Some of the lighting from the "strike" looks wrong, as if it's coming from outside the crater. Also, this is difficult to tell without the whole image, but I have the impression that the strike looks slightly like an overlay on the wrong angled plane. Tilted towards the viewer slightly.


Just my impression. I hope it helps.

Thanks for the information. I think that it is not for the reasons you gave. Only a "Photoshop filters & effects (over-sharpening, excessive adjustments to levels, curves, contrast, hues, gaussian blurs, saturation, added textures, noise reduction ...)." Problem is that basically none of those not I used.

You usually get the "overfiltered / overprocessed" rejection if they reject work of this type. It's a generalised rejection. If you read it, it says that "this MAY include" PhotoShop filters etc.


I may be wrong of course, but I'd assume that it's the added artwork that has got the rejection here.

As Dave said above, we really need to see the file at 100% to be able to fully help you understand the rejection.  If you didn't read the link he provided above, here it is again: Critique Request Forum Guide

Don't post the full size image here. Post a link to the image hosted elsewhere. I still think the same as I did before. It's not quite convincing in it's present form, and the work you've done to add the crater etc. is the reason for the "over processed" rejection.

It looks fake / cut out and why isn't there any fire?

No, it's a real photo. When were you last in Zurich? ;)

over filtered = looks like fake ?

Thanks, but it's just an explosion. Directions of explosion or little errors in layers are not important, I think. The reasons for rejection suggest the use to more some filters in PS.

Composites like this have to be extremely well-executed to get into the collection. This one isn't. It should look real, but it doesn't.


The 'filters' rejection is just a boilerplate one. This won't get through because it just does not work.

Here's what the rejection note says:

"This image appears to be over-filtered over-processed which has affected the image quality. This may include Photoshop filters & effects (over-sharpening, excessive adjustments to levels, curves, contrast, hues, gaussian blurs, saturation, added textures, noise reduction...) or other manipulations..."

Here's what it often means:

Your post production efforts have not worked well enough in this case. The editing either does not suit the subject or has not been executed with sufficient skill. The editing basically does not look convincing enough.


Don't get too hung up on the semantics of the rejection note, the meaning is fairly clear.

The full size version that you posted here:

http://puchan.republika.pl/impact3b-prot.jpg

Has quite a few areas that are less than convincing or fake looking:

screen130414-232843

I appreciate that a lot of time may have gone into it but it falls a long way short of looking right to me at anything other than a thumbnail size. If it's a subject matter you feel has commercial potential then I'd try and rework it and make it look more realistic. And it's no bad thing to practise your Photoshop skills if you want to create more conceptual images in future, but I don't think you're there with this version.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm going to improve it according to your instructions in fine-tuning the details. Kelvin, a part of picture You show did not fit to me to and probably outweighed the total evaluation. Now I'll have to set fire to every building in Zurich. I think it would be faster in the real world ....
