After reading the thread on the new queue limits I thought I should apologize for the amount of work I give the screeners. I am someone who uploads a lot of photos, with nearly 1,600 accepted going back to when photo IDs had only 4 digits. However I have a rather low acceptance rate and this is at least partly due to my age and infirmity. My hands are somewhat unsteady, causing camera shake which high shutter speeds may not entirely eliminate. Also my vision is not acute so that sometimes I cannot detect some imperfections such as BADSOFT when processing photos. Also I have a habit of not holding the camera level and not noticing it when taking a picture. This means that I very frequently have to rotate the photo counter-clockwise and occasionally don't get it right.
I will try to do better, but don't count on much of an improvement  Smile

Don't feel so bad John, I also feel for the screeners. I have uploaded about 40 pictures, with not one being accepted thus far. I will say though, that my pictures are only improving.

Even us young'ins have problems detecting BADSOFT. I get it on about 1/3 of my photo's, yet I cannot see it some of the time. I have decided to upgrade my photography equipment to hopefully eliminate the problem.

That said, 1600 photos accepted is quite an accomplishment! That number of pictures comes with a lot of hardwork & dedication.

I do not see the need for you to apologise - the new screening limit system will protect the screeners, at least to an extent.

We are all trying to improve in the difficult art of aircraft photography. The main criteria should be (a) enjoyment and (b) creativity.

My compliments and admiration to you for persevering in the face of the difficulties you mentioned.

Keep going!

Hey John!

Dont be discouraged! 1600 photos is a mamoth number of photos and a great achievement. Old or new , they still have their place on a.net. Awaiting your future uploads! Big grin
