Just a note about the copyright thing. If you look through my last 1000 or so shots on this database they contain exactly the same copyright notice applied in exatly the same way. I thought the rule was that copyright marks are OK as long as they were not visible on the thumnail?
One was a badangle, which on reflection was correct.
Looks like I may be back to 5 upload slots before long !

Garry - Had a quick look at these and have to go with the screeners conclusions. CSA A310 is grey and horrid. The AF A340 is ropey, especially with the photographers in the base of the photo. The Corseair A330 (if I recall correctly) at St.M is badly framed (although I see what you are trying to achieve).

I knew the CSA was borderline at best, I thought it was worth trying because of the unusual low level flight attitude........Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I suspected it would probably be baddark, but it was only given badpersonal (again copyright label).

Hey don't feel bad dude, I'm none for nine today, and it seems since the site has had it's regime change, they're finding more and more reasons to reject photos. Granted I agree with some of the comments above, but they're great shots! I'm beginning to lose my patience for the simple fact that I'm tired of my photos being "not good enough", and am thinking of going the way of many other former A.net photographers and going elsewhere. Everyone has their opinion and I frankly don't care who has something to say in rebuttal to this, but I honestly think it sucks and I've about had enough. I've given it a fair chance and I'm losing my patience fast. I understand it's supposed to make you a "better photographer", but I could be making money off of probably 85% of the "rejects" I've had over the last year. Not that I will mind you, I shoot for the love of it, but when you're constantly told that all the work and effort you've put into your photos is for sh*t...well that's crossed the line for me.
I am new to a.net and this has been my experience so far...
I have uploaded exactly 7 photos to this website...all have been rejected. This gets very discouraging, I have gone out and purchased new equipment, photo editing software, and spent hours learning the camera and software as well as spent countless hours at the airport.
It does appear that if you have a unique photo that they will lower the standard of quality.
I know that they have thousands of photos to screen.."but throw me a freaken bone people"

You're not the only one!
Some of us here do this as a hobby and love every minute of it.
It does get very upsetting to think that we go out and enjoy taking pics. I actully leave the airport thinking that maybe others would enjoy looking at my work on A.net. Then a few days later to have all that work rejected, sometimes does get to you.

Quoting Tommy Mogren (Reply 9): Quoting JeffM (Reply 8):
What is the purpose of that additional copyright anyway?
Like I've said enough times in the related thread...
every little step...
Please...in my opinion you might just be taking this a little too seriously. Why not just put your initials in the photo someplace? I have a few hundred with them in it. You will only see them when the photo is at 200% and they are rarely in the same place more then once. Be creative.

Its just extra steps you take to protect your property, isn't it?
No, actually the alarm won't set with the door and window unlocked. We don't have alarms on pictures.........

I think we're all forgetting there is the other site, www.myaviation.net, which has no rejections. Personally, I don't mind if a photo gets rejected here, because I learn from it. There has been 2 photos I have taken which I dispute, but maybe I don't see something where a screener does.
It's all fine and appreciated that people go out to the airport and spend however many hours there taking photos in whatever weather only to have your photos rejected, BUT, if it gets rejected, learn from your rejection. Don't just delete the email and go out and take more photos using the same technique and same post processing hoping THIS time, they will get accepted.
Photos DO get accepted, and I can testify to this. The reason is I can testify to this is because my first upload and rejection was quite disgraceful and am very glad it has been deleted off the rejection database. That was 6 months ago. 2 weeks ago, I had 16 photos from 18 accepted. Today, I had 3 rejections with 2 in second screening. Closely looked at the photos and saw where I went wrong. Not bragging, just pointing out that if you want to get your photos accepted here, expect rejections and hope for acceptances. It's not a personal attack.
Just my $0.02.
