Hi All


I received an over filtered rejection for this image

What is meant by over filtered. I had a look in the guidelines and it appears to be to do with colours being wildly different from how they should be - what have i missed?


Thanks in advance Jo

The shadow looks unreal with those jagged edges, and there is a 'glow' around the edges of the numerals and markers on the syringe. The image appears to have been oversharpened.


'Over filtered' means that the image has been overdone in post-processing (or sometimes by in-camera processing).


Perhaps you could post the original, raw file?

Yeah, agree with vandervelden here... halos around the numbers, the shadows also look a bit noisy btw... maybe also a tiny bit of excess contrast?

Not sure if that needle cap should be in there or not... it blends into the background a bit too much i think

It looks too contrasty to me and the shadows stop abruptly and not naturally. What bothers me most though is the air bubbles in the substance to be injected. Who is to be killed?

In your case:

over filtered=over sharpened

"Overfiltered" is a generic term meaning you did too much processing to the image.  When an image is processed in photoshop, what is taking place is that digital "filters" are being applied.  Thus, overfiltering means that you did too much with one or more of the adjustments you applied.  This image looks way oversharpened to me.  Sharpening is an adjustment you should be very wary of and very careful with.  Personally, it is an adjustment that is rarely necessary if the photo is taken properly. 

From a purely compositional point of view, leaving in the cap over the needle does nothing good for this image.  Indeed, it simply makes the background look dirty and confusing.  I'd clone it out and leave the syringe on a white background without the cap.
