Yeah, I think I mentioned before the tail/reg. looked like it needed a little sharpening. For me, it was the reg. that showed it, but also around the APU exhaust (tail cone). I don't think those would be affected by the jet wash.
Apply some selective sharpening, but be careful where and how much you apply, as I can already start to see jaggies forming on the leading edge of the horizontal stabilizer in you edit.
I would generally think that no feedback means the flaws aren't obvious enough for people to immediately jump on them. I know that the feedback I'm mostly likely to give is for those photos that have glaring deficiencies that are easy to spot. Those that are less obvious I'm more likely to pass on, lest my advice be counter-productive (i.e. suggesting more sharpening when only a touch in certain areas is needed can lead to oversharpening), or not helpful.
As for your HA 763, the same kind of thinking applies I believe. I -marginally- agree with the screener's decision - the quality of the photo is not horrendous, but it's just lacking something... the plane isn't quite 'clean' enough and doesn't quite pop from the screen. I passed the first time I read your post because I didn't think there was anything definite or helpful that I could add, and I still don't think I'm being of much help. Where I really see it (or don't in this case) is along the fuselage - the windows are kind of fuzzy, and the undercarriage too - just not quite what I would expect to see on a.net.
I don't know if that's what the screeners were looking at too, but that's what I can see.
If you want, I don't mind seeing if I can come up with an edit I like better if you want to send me the original file. You still have my email, no?

Dana, no worries but, even saying it looks ok to you is welcome feedback. I'm never going to hold it against you or anyone if something you say looks good gets rejected.
Mark and Sean, I'll have a look at those areas and see if I can make a improvement.
Just one other thing, I'm trying to be really active on here because I want to improve and anything, anything at all you can say both good or bad is very welcome. Rejections don't bother me and I know that the vast majority of pictures I take will be thrown out. And, even if they're not a.net quality they're still good pictures to me and are welcome additions to my collection.
So, don't feel like I'm unwilling to accept criticism, I need it and crave it if I'm going to improve and it's not going to hurt my feelings. Of course hearing that you think one is good is welcome.
Anyways, back to looking at todays top of 24 hours and then back into Photoshop
