Hi:
Today, I have this picture reject with soft.

Big version: Width: 1200 Height: 812 File size: 203kb

I would like some opinion, becuse I am sure this picture is correct and I think the picture meet the standards.
I have appealed. But, nothing.
Regards

Bustin

The tail looks a little soft on my screen and i'd also say it's a little low in the frame and could do with a slight increase in contrast.

Rejection is correct. In fact, it may be too blurry to be saved (the U.S. Coast Guard titles on the back fuselage look a little jagged), but if anything try at 1024 pixels wide.

Proper rejection, blurry/soft and jagged in places.

Could be a bit higher in the frame too

One will always find reasons for rejection, so in the end standards will be set so high to take all the fun off what once was a really nice hobby...

for my opinion, this pic is quite O.K., maybe not really 'premium class' but even O.K.

Olééééé...........
Low frame!!, Jagged!!, Blurry!!, Contrast!!........To the screener only is soft!!

And....I has thought the screeners are tough.

I must to be the worst photographer of airliners.net.

Now, I go to destroy my Nikon and buy a fishing-rod.

Thanks to all the opinion

Well, the standards of anet as many will tell you are quite obvious. If yu don't want advice or opinions on your photos, why ask?

To avoid offense to delicate sensibilities, I'll change my advice:

"Nice shot, I'd appeal and then re-upload if necessary"

Here is my take on the screening process:

When I uploaded my first shot ever, I thought I had an amazing shot, that sure as heck would make it in the db. It was rejected (with only "soft" as the reason) and I was devastated. I was close to throwing in the towel and never come back.

A few weeks later, the weather got better and I went out again to shoot again, but the rejections came coming. So I started asking questions and with the help of the great people here, I finally got my first one accepted. Now, I have 5 pics in the db and I start seeing the rejection reasons more and more (by no means completely... I am still surprised by some). Looking back at my first upload attempt, I am just shaking my head at how naive I was. Soft was surely not the only thing wrong with that image.

What I am trying to say is: It takes a while to get used to the standards required here, but the more you are willing to listen and learn, the more you will understand. It doesn't come overnight... but eventually you are astonished at how much you pick up.

Sorry "Alevik". I can see you are some annoying with my reply, and really, I never want this.
Of course, I respect and accept you and other opinions. With you help and other people here in airliners.net I have learnt very much and I am a best photographer. I want be grateful with you and other people that lost free time to help and advice to other photographer.

I know the high standards of arliners.net. and I am agree. Really, I have 850 accepted pictures. Only I was some frustrated with this picture....But, if I offend you or other people,.... sincereslly, Excuse me!!!

Surely, my poor english is some guilty.

Again sorry and thanks

Ever seen a comment like "Yeah, that's O.K. as it is"? As I haven't, I wonder if sometimes the question is understood as "Tell me what's wrong with this pic, if you don't find anything, just have a closer look..."
As I talked to many people, I know that there are a lot of them really finding the way of rejection annoying and give it up. We are all human beings and so that's a matter of fact one has to work with - especially if he wants those people to do something for fun - and for free!

Just guess how many great pictures are outside there we, as users, will never get to see...
