I Know... Yet Another Question On Badquality

My enthousiasm for uploading pics comes in waves. As I am often using a digital camera (a decent 5MPixel one, but still nothing special), I fully realise that it is quite difficult to get the required quality for uploads, but with some practice, I've succeeded in a few successful uploads... Usually when I have a couple of good-looking pictures, the enthousiasm gets stronger than the sense for realism, I upload some and most get rejected. My own fault... The enthousiasm level drops again, I get more realistic, concentrate on only the best pic, and try again if it's worth it.

This pic:

was first rejected (and I agreed with it because it was a tad too dark. Then I reworked it but it was rejected due to lack of sharpness). Although I realise this is by no means a very special picture or motive, I reworked it again, just to learn. Now I get bad quality...

Once again, this pic is one like there are so many already, but I would appreciate all help to tell me what is so bad about it. Have I concentrated too much on the plane and is the sky/grass on the foreground too low-quality? Is there something I don't see? Thanks...

Nice picture, but it seems to me that it is way too overexposed. When you shoot with the sun at your back at planes with a very reflective paint (AA, or euro-white c/s), you need to underexpose a few shots. I don't think you will be able to save this one. Sorry!


I guess that's what happens in the end, you start thinking about the beginning.

well it was first rejected for being too dark if you noticed that...

so will just have to find a happy medium

I think you overcompensated when brightening it. Make it a little less brighter , add some contrast and then add a little USM.

Good luck!
