I recently went on a trip to Hwange.
For this shot I used my Canon 100-400mm F/4.5 - f/5.6 IS L Lens. I was also using a Kenko TC 1.4 (but not all the time).
I submit some of my photos to a photo agency, but have been rejected on quite a few from this series due to rasterised images - this being one of them?
On viewing on 100% I can see noise in the background, but I don't actually know what rasterised means - is it the same as noise / pixelation?
I would really appreciate some help in where I went wrong - either in camera or post editing.
I was quite pleased with this image, but obviously something isn't right. On 100% I can see noise, but as I didn't use high ISO, I don't understand where the noise has come from?'
I used a Canon 7D, with the above lens, shot as follows:
Manual White Balance - Daylight
I used photo elements 8 to adjust lighting & cropped it.
I am only an amateur enthusiastic photographer and understand (I think) the basics of aperture and shutter speed.
Any help or advice would be appreciated- Thanks in advance.
