Why Is This Photo's Quality Too Low?

I tried to submit the following photo onto Airliners.net last month, but it somehow got rejected. The reason was "low quality", but I am wondering why the quality was determined to be low.

One speculation I had was that there appears to be window glare in front of the winglet. However, I believe that the glare was actually on the winglet itself, as a reflection from the leading edge of the horizontal part of the wing, due to sunlight. Would that still be considered a flaw in quality?

I would greatly appreciate any opinion, regarding why the quality was considered to be inadequate. Thanks. The photo should appear below.

The shot is slightly oversharpened and I see a lot of jpeg compression. Try to save all your shots on the highest quality setting.

Long live the A330!

The first time I tried to submit this photo, I got the message that it was too big -- over 2000 pixels on one dimension. Therefore I made a copy and shrunk the image down to 50% (of its original size) and resubmitted it. I still have the original photo. If I shrink it down just to 75% or so, do you think that would be enough to make the photo successful?

I was also wanting to know if the initial rejection had anything to do with the apparent glare (described in the initial thread I posted for this topic) visible in the photo.

As you can see, photo somehow didn't get displayed in the initial thread (even though I followed the instructions to enter the full link and surround it with the "[IMG]" and "[/IMG]" tags). Willo (another A.net member) somehow go it to appear in the second thread. Thanks Willo.

I would greatly appreciate a reply. Thanks.

I really don't know why airliners didn't accepted this picture because it is a very nice one. You could e-mail airliners to know the reason of its rejection.


De-icing RULZ!!!

I used "Paint" (One of the accessories that comes with Windows XP).

There is one thing that you NEED to do.
Wait for good light and when the good light has arrived.....
Take your camera, a pen and notebook.....
to near a runway near you....
and........
photograph a safe side on view of an airplane flying by....
Jot down the reg......
Shoot it at 50 asa.....
Don't sharpen it because that would give you the DREADED grain.......
Then.....
after 4 to 7 days, your photo, which will now look like approximately 1,045,089 a.net photos, will be accepted.....

That is all that needs to be done.

I guessed it! MS Paint by default compresses quality by 70%. If you use other photo editing softwares like Photoshop, Elements, PSP etc...you can manually specify the compression. In that case you acheive both reduction in picture size as well as retaining the picture quality.

If you do not have any software to edit, I would be glad to help ya out if you send me the original.

Cheers!
