Hi guys

I´ve been full of quality rejections lately.  weeping  I really need a hand on what I´m doing wrong, or if there are any unsaveable issues. I post here a couple of them, so as to get started:

Aerolineas 737-500

Austral MD-81

LAN Argentina A320

Could you help me sort out the quality problems? Any comments appreciated.  yes 
Thank you very much!  Smile

Cheers!
Lanas.-

I'm seeing traces of a point and shoot camera.

Nothing can be done to improve these I have to say.

You´re right.  worried  It´s my humble equipment, but where do you see those 'traces' or problems?
Thanks for your help!  bigthumbsup 

Cheers!

PHOTO SCREENER

Hi Gaston,

I am currently travelling, so using my laptop (not too reliable screen for this purpose). I think on all three images there is a combination of factors that sum up to the quality rejection (since I also have had quite a lot lately, I am getting an expert for that  Wink ). The factors are: Grain, bad light (direction), contrast and sharpness. On its own probably none of these kills the shots, but they all seem to suffer from all of these things to a more or less extent. Sorry to be rather wage (maybe a screener can be more specific?)...



Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!

Gaston,

What Andres said above pretty much covers it. Basically, it's a a bunch of little things that add up to an overall quality problem. Looking at the first shot, some areas are soft, some are oversharpened while others are muddy. If these are lightly edited and what closely resembles what comes out of your camera not sure there is much that can be done. If the quality straight out of cam is much better, perhaps getting help with your PP could provide for better results.

Another tip would be to try your best to not cutoff the rear horiz. stabs, like you did on the 1st two photos. While they alone might not cause a rejection, I feel they add to the overall quality problem (IMO, bad crop).

Mike

Thank you Andres and Mike for your feedback. I really appreciate it.  goodvibes 
I have to train my eye better for these quality rejections. I still can´t figure them out right.  eyepopping

What do you mean by 'muddy'? Grainy?

They are not slightly edited, but I don´t think the quality of the original is the greatest you can see. It´s OK. I mean, I´ve had some nice pics accepted, but I guess I depend a lot from the lighting, weather and other factors, since I don´t have total control of the usual variables (aperture, speed, ISO, etc).

I revise my worflow occasionally and make some changes with some tips I learn here. Is that what you mean for PP?

I agree. I always try to do that, but on the MD I didn´t have much chance.

I guess I´ll start over again. I´ll try to show you other quality rejections so you can help me out.
Thank you very much for your help!  cheerful 

Cheers!  Smile

Muddy as in colors/edges run together, like the ramp on the first pic. (ie too soft)

Yes, PP would mean post-processing, aka workflow.

No, but you still have to improve the quality. First, shoot in good light. Your pictures are taken in quite gray weather. Try to get good sunlight, that often means better quality. Be careful with the sharpening, they look jagged in some places. And aviod to get fence on the picture.

Nice tips, Jacob.  Smile
I don´t have a lot of flexibility with my camera, so I´m pretty stuck into good weather and good lighting conditions. It´s just that the last times I could spot the weather was not the greatest.
Thanks for your comments.  Wink

Cheers!
