I am new to aviation photography and I am trying to get my first photo accepted after five rejections.

Reject reasons are as follows:

Photo 1 : Reject reason: quality soft

Photo 2: Reject reason: quality blurry personal (I cannot make heads or tails what personal means)

I used Photoshop CS2 to edit these photos.

I need a helping hand with these photos.

Joe,

I love your first photo. The colours are strong with a lovely blue sky. The tail of the aircraft is a little soft and I fear the original may have been slightly bury as well so you've had to sharpen it heavily?

The second photo is very soft / blurry. Not much you can do with that.

Yes I found the personal message from the screener. Thanks.

I still believe these photos deserve better.

I submitted these photos one in the 1600 resolution and the other in the 1300 resoultion. From the previous threads I have read I am aware these resolutions expose more the defects - however I did this to avoid the jaggies I was getting during resizing to 1024.

In fact these have no resizing but cropping and sharpening only.

I am new to photoshop CS2. I edited the photos and the above are the results I got.

Joe the first is soft in parts, such as the tail and the wing tip of the right wing. Its a touch backlit, or at least the sun is shining towards the face of the aircraft, but I don't see that as a major problem here.

Second image is out of focus

As regards the second image will this edited sharpened image make it through. Is there anything that can be improved?

First the first photo - I'd recommend you try having your image at 1024x if your a newbie.

The second photo seems to be out of focus. You can't really do much with a photo once it's unfocused.
