Bah, whatever...3 rejections I got this morning. Can you guess why? I'll reveal of course after a few guesses. Then we'll see if there is anything I can do to fix them up. I really only agree with one, thats the point. Anyway, here they are.

1) Contrast? looks a little flat.

2) This looks alright to me..there is a large specular highlight from the sun, but not so severe it's hurt the image - in my opinion. OTher than that, Fence?

3) I don't know. It looks alright to my eyes.



It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.

All I can say is: Good pics! The AA MD-80 might be a little oversharpened I guess, but you might want to get better opinions than mine.

Well, so far, one person has guess one rejection correctly. (The one I don't agree with since I have several from the same area in the db) Keep going!  Smile

If you don't agree, why not appeal?

Let me try:
1) Nice pic of a house with a fence. The aircraft covers too much of them.
2) Same house, same fence, but can't read the ads on the fence.
3) Missing the fence ....

Ok, here we go. Few correct guesses.

First one, was for motiv. I have several shots from TUL taken from the same area. I also have a few more in the current batch that are in screening from the same area, which worries me as my ratio has dropped 20%. I don't know if I should pull them or keep them in and hope it doesn't drop another 10-15%

Second one, was for contrast. Yeah, the silver paint of the Frontier text is quite illuminated, but its natural. I have a departure shot of the same aircraft and the text is the same. I don't know if I should pull it as well or leave it in.

Third one, compression. A few of you guessed it right. It wasn't that large of a crop and was saved at the highest quality jpg that PS allows as are all my shots. So I don't know if it can be saved or not. I think thats one of the only angles where an MD80 looks good. Big grin

Royal, I have not been very successful in the past with appeals. I think I have had only one overturned in about the 10 or so I have tried, so I doubt I will appeal, just looking for some feedback.

Thanks for playing,
Danny

I am failing to see how that is not centered. Looks good to me.

If you are looking for feed back why do it in a passive aggressive way? We all get rejections, I myself have had several lately.

If you are confused for a motiv rejection, you say you have several shots already accepted from that location, why not appeal and note that, so the headscreener(s) can give you some feedback. At least that way you will know about uploading such shots in the future. As it stands right now all you are doing is spinning your wheels.

I don't know if I should pull them or keep them in and hope...

PS - The first two shots look like NOA_color to me, but I am not on my primary machine at the moment.

That is true for the third one as well as the second one, in my opinion.

Advice taken so we'll see. I just dislike when rules are changed midstream. What's ok in the past isn't ok today.

Well, your appeal success ratio just went up, didn't it.

Thanks, but no since I was 1 for 2.  Wink

The contrast explanation is just so vague though.

"There is a problem with the contrasts in these photo(s). The whites in the
image are not pure white, or the blacks are not pure black.
There may be several reasons for this problem, and depending this, it may
or may not be possible to correct it. If you want to read more about this
problem, and about possible ways to correct it and hopefully attempt a
re-upload, please go to
http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/reasons.php#contrast
"

Of course the whites aren't white, it was evening, low-sun light. Whatever though.

well, if you were 1 out of 10 before (10%), and you went 1 out of 2 this time (50%), that would make you 2 for 11 (18%).

So yeah, your numbers did go up.

Anyways, I would not have appealed the contrast shot, the color is off, tweak the white balance. Or don't.
