I need some opinions on this photo's "soft" appearance. Thanks in advance.

Chad,

Titles and forward windows look soft to me. Could use a little extra USM.

What's the black dot near the tail?

I am assuming its a bird... are those not allowed anymore? It doesn't have the dust spot aesthetics so I left it.  Smile

It look more like the softness from compression and it is quite a small file size for a 1200px shot

If it cannot be fixed, I’ll just chalk this one up as a golden opportunity gone down the drain. Mother Nature did its part to make this hideous livery look halfway decent at least.  Smile

I once uploaded a helicopter photo from an airshow where there were four "dots" - aircraft, flying in formation in a fair distance. It got rejected for "dirty". Appeal with the explanation that the "dots" were aircraft didn't help. After I cloned them out, it got accepted.

Since then, I get rid of all "suspicious" dots...

Cheers,
Andrei

Stands a chance. The contrast is just slightly high. And I don't like that black dot near the tailfin, either.

Very weird, That was the same as the original photo. In my re-edit, I removed the "bird". I didn't change the name of the file however and maybe the file got crossed somehow with the original uploaded file?

Your reply speaks millions though.  Smile

Here it is again, with the name of the file changed. To contrasty?

Now now gentlemen. Can we all get along   

Matt brings up a good point in his last post:

Quoting WakeTurbulence (Reply 12):
but also to point out that standards seem to be pretty far off sometimes, as seen in this thread.

I think the screeners (as a whole) are doing a great job.

Now, can I get some more input on my 763? Royal, you mentioned that it wasnt for you due to the "harsh midday light". It was midday, but the light isnt bad at all to me.

PHOTO SCREENER

He doesn't bring up a good point, and it was weak sauce that my post was deleted.

If you have a problem with a photo, alert the screeners.

Chad, I am sure your buddy Matt knows you emailed some on the screening team about that RJ photo being oversharp. If you want to play that way, no problem, but in the future don't ask for my help in private, like you did today.

I find it offensive you want help in private yet you mock our work in public.

Email someone else next time.

He is the one that pointed it out to me in the very beginning (Sunday) I then emailed you to alert you, simple as that. Yes I knew about this photo because of him and told him that I emailed you to let you know.

Matt could have posted the original photo, which I wouldnt have condoned (and that isnt like him anyhow). In my opinion it was meant as a joke, nothing more nothing less.

Where did I mock your work?

I asked for your opinion concerning my AA 777 photo. I didnt get opinion, I got something even better, thank you.  Smile

To me the first one looks absolutely fine, the second has jaggies over the Delta titles.
