Hello all,

I would like to ask for your comments on rejections below as for these three I do not understand rejection reason(s) and/or don’t know how to fix the problem.

#1 - http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...90805_t1248851699.2409img_7039.jpg
Rejection reason: quality personal grainy soft common - A comment from the screener regarding this upload: "t1248851699.2409img_7039.jpg poor sky quality"
I can understand “common” reason but do not see any digital noise or softness and do not know how to improve sky quality.

#2 - http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...90806_r1248938218.5496img_1937.jpg
Rejection reason: dark
Is the problem here that lower part of fuselage is shaded?

#3 - http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...90807_m1249027602.1713img_2205.jpg
Rejection reason: centered
I’m always trying to place center of fuselage to center of frame so I don’t understand what is wrong with this one.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

1 - Looks to me it was an early morning shot before 'nice lighting' which can leave the sky very grainy. Not a great deal can be done with it I don't think. I generally give up when trying to edit this type of shot, But if someone has a fix.......

2 - The lower of the fusealge does seem dark, Maybe have a little play with the highlights, but be carefull not to get too much grain.

3 - It needs to be little higher in the frame, the center point of the aircraft is too low

Keep your Ladders close, but your camera closer

#1: it looks like you sharpened the sky as well as the airplane. Try to select and to sharpen the airplen only. Then the sky looks better.

#2: Looks like a noon shot when the sun comes from directly above the airplane. Always gives you a dark lower fuselage. Using the highlights can cause a lot of grain, so use it very carefully... It is a tricky one

#3: as said, a little too low in the frame.

exclude the sky when sharpening #1 and maybe apply noise reduction to it as well. Also crop it closer to the nose, you have way too much dead space in the front. I don't really see it as soft and as for "common" - it needs to be of an exceptional quality as it is a very common airplane.
#2 is dark indeed, you can adjust the contrast...
Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 693 File size: 126kb

#3 - again, too much dead space in front of the plane and maybe crop tighter as well.
