Attention All Screeners-Your Hair Again

In the first instance, this thread's intention is to clarify and not to point the finger at anyone.

Please refer to Remi's image #187129

Throught the forum when discussing criteria for posting and why images can be and are rejected, the following theme comes to mind

-scan quality

Is it my eyes or could we all request that Remi either clean his lens, mirror or glass on his scanner. It is so obvious and imbarrassing.

I refer to the latter because I was showing off this site to my work collegues who were very impressed. While we were viewing images I explained (and defended) the way A.net subjects the submitted images from photogs maticulusly (sp) for quality.

All good until I showed them #187129. Needless to say the session at my screen ended there.

Is there any explanation to how this got through.

PS: If Remi has a secret of how to get these types of images posted, the majority out here would like to hear it.

Apologies to Remi for using his image for the basis of this thread.

Thanks,
AS

Let see what you bring to the party!

Sorry for not being specific. I thought it would be obvious.

Top left hand corner of the flight deck door. There is a line (not straight) from that point. It extends west then north-west then north and ends somewhere in the sky abobe the plane. I have checked again and it is still there when I view it. I also checked that there was no foreign material on my screen too.

From the responses so far, it seems that your screens do not evidence the 'line'.

And to clarify, I think the shot is great. I wish I could those kind of images myself. It is the quality (of the screening or the scanning) which I was questioning.

Thanks, AS

Yes I see that now. Probably scanned from a slide or negative....looks like a scratch.

A little dust and scratch removal wouldn't hurt it, but is that reason enough to have a simillar pic rejected?

btw, I just posted the pic to make it easier to see what pic was discussed. If there is any reason why it shouldn't be shown (?) just delete this post.

I'm not sure I understand why people partake in the "why does he get pics uploaded when I can't" discussions. They serve no positive purpose.

IMO it's a nice shot and the mark is almost unnoticeable.

I totally agree with this. If someone is unhappy about a pic being uploaded, either talk to the photographer or the 'Main Man' himself.

The upload will have been 'screened' by Johan and that's a good enough reason to me for it to be added.

I know I've uploaded a few photos that I notice a scratch or some dust that I missed during editing but I don't think that it's bad enough to detract from the photo. The line on Remi's photo is not very noticeable and overall it is a very good quality scan.

Alphasierra, I agree with a couple of the others, let's see some photos from you.

This is not the reason I started this thread. From the outset A.net stipulates quality. I believe it is a quality shot, but from the posts and the rejection reasons given in the past I would not submit that image.

Should I really be saying that I should submit my images which fall into the same catagory, eg:scrathes. At least I will be giving them a chance.

I have thought about it, but then I read more posts (especially those which give advice re: scanning, and about 'touching up' ) and think I will be wasting the screeners time.

It's unfortunate that some readers catgorise this as a "why does he get pics uploaded when I can't" , again I re-iterate that wasn't the reason for the thread.

If I am to follow the line of thinking from your responses, then I am more than happy that the image was passed by Johan, he is giving us a measure of A.net standards.

Sorry to all that didnt warrrant a response and thanks to all that did.

I apologize for only using the "remove dust and scratches" function of PhotoShop a couple of weeks now, thus you will find many older photos of mine with dust, hair etc. Looking at those today, I feel ashamed...
When time allows, I'll rescan some of those.

I think that we all devlop our style and working practices as we take more photographs. When I started out, it never occurred to me to spend time removing dust and scratches either. However, as I scanned more pictures, I became more particular about the results I was getting, and now I wouldn't dream of uploading pics with visible dust and scratches on them.

In the case of the pic referred to on this thread, I would have removed the hair (for it is pretty certainly a small hair that got onto the original when scanned) in the editing stage. However, it's not my shot, and in this case it's not so bad that it really spoils the pic.

I'd quite like to see pics rejected when they have significant dust/hairs and/or scratches on them though. Sometimes there are pics where there is a big dark hair in the middle of the sky - which detracts so much from the quality of it, but which would have been so simple for the photographer to remove.
