Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

I have recently been trying to offer help and advice to Hongyin Huo, who recently became a fellow A.net photographer, based in Toronto. He has recently received a badquality rejection for this photo.

There is no doubt that Hongyin's photography and editing skills have been really developing in a short space of time. He would value some further advice and guidance on this particular photo as we are both somewhat unclear as to the specific reason(s) why this photo was rejected on quality grounds (as opposed to, say, motive).

I know he would value any advice colleagues can offer.

Thanks very much on Hongyin's behalf.

The quality of the photo looks good to me. What is being shown is a bit of an eyebugger. Is it possible to crop closer to the end of the tail from the left while showing more of the ramp? A whole lot of sky with nothing in it! Regardless it's a nice shot. A screener could possibly comment on as to why it was rejected for badquality.

That is a cracking clear shot mate, one I would be proud of. The only thing I can see mate is a faint, well what appears to be, three dust spots in front of the Air Canada tail, about half way up and about an inch in front of it. But even in Equalize mode they are hard to see.

Hope that helps

Take care

On my monitor, I see jaggies on the trailing edge of the Air Canada tail. Very faint, but there. More pronounced on my LCD. That would about do it for "badquality".

Very cool pic, though.

Hi Paul

I agree with Phil, reduce the jaggies and if possible make the tail more central
that should do it.

I'd like to know for my own reference what the "quality" issue is too. If it's the spots then it should be "baddirty". This shot looks fine to me and I would have submitted it so that's why I'm asking.

I had a few badquality rejections recently and wondered what the parameters were for this particular category (mine WERE badquality by the way!)

That's my issue too. Hongyin asked me for my advice as to why the badquality rejection was given and I was unsure.

I can see some jaggies - primarily on the back Alitalia, but not anything that should be 'fatal', in my opinion. For me, Phil, the Air Canada tail is not a significant issue on my monitor. If that was the only issue I would expect a badjagged rejection, and so I am assuming that badquality was used because the screener felt there was more than one problematic issue.

I suppose I was wondering if badquality gets used as a 'general' rejection criterion when a number of issues come together. But I have read the definition, and it does imply that the image quality itself is the factor, and the quality of this image looks fine to me. You could argue about jaggies, composition etc, but to me that is something different.

JAT74L, I think the bad quality rejection comes from the dirt spots, the jaggies, and the center/cropping issue, all rolled into one bad quality rejection. That's something that I hate the most becasue you could probably fix all of these issues, but if you have no experience then it becomes overwhelming and you don't know where to start.
