Rejection For Bad Quality

Below photo has just been rejected for bad quality. Can anyone help me out here and give tips to possibly correct this photo? I personally don't see why this photo should have been rejected for bad quality. There might be little bit of heat haze but it's not that much.

Thanks,

Yep too much heathaze. Can't be saved I'm afraid.

Cheers

Thanks

Shame about the heat haze there. Still a nice shot.

Thanks for the opinions/advice/input. I hate the heat haze problem. Where I live (CUR) we have a lot of heat haze in the afternoon. Is there a way to take pictures with less heathaze effecting the photo? Otherwise it's impossible to take photos here.

The only way to minimize it is getting closer to the subject, reducing the amount of atmosphere between you and the subject.

Hey Bubbles, how are you doing? Nice hearing from you again. As usual thank you very much for your tip. So I was right that there actually is no cure for heat haze other than shooting at times when heat haze is minimal or taking photos during landing or close to the aircraft.

Thanks my friend.

Sorry Roger, heat haze is a photographer's enemy. It's impossible to recover such a shot when nature is fighting against you. When heat haze hits, probably best to switch from taking the shot to viewing and enjoying the incredible winged beasts with your own eyes.... be sure to wear sunscreen and a hat at the same time  Smile

Respected users.... If my replies are useful, then by all means...

Heey Glenn, thanks for the tips. I now know about the famous heathaze issues. There appears to be no cure for it! No wonder it's a photographer's worse enemy and we have a lot of heat haze where I live, unfortunately...

But like you said, it shouldn't stop the spotting... Big grin

I still recommend shooting aircraft in the air... and hopefully your airport is one of those that improves in winter.

I know of a certain Australian airport on the west coast that seems to have heat haze all year round. When I think of heat haze, I think of the synonym: Perth.

Sorry Monty :P

Try the early morning and late afternoon hours when heat haze is minimum.

Heey TACA320, how are you doing? It's been a long time but yes, I am enjoying my camera so far. I only have a few disappointing rejections here at airliners.net but it's a learning process. As discussed I also have to deal with heat haze which is very irritating! Also the number of aircraft movements here in CUR is still on the low side. Even so I missed the Cargolux 744F which was here last week! I was so mad I didn't know about them arriving here on that day as I was free on that day too! Every time I go to the airport there's nothing nice that arrives other than the usual traffic and when I don't go to the airport, all the good stuff arrives....  Sad

Better luck the next time!
