I just had the largest number of photos rejected at one time than I've had since I've been uploading to a.net. This is also the first batch of photos I scanned since I've purchased a new monitor (17" LCD). I was wondering if a few of you out there could post some comments on a few of them if possible. There are a few that I noticed things wrong with, but others that I'm clueless on.

The photos can be seen at

All of these were rejected for "low quality". There are more, but I can't find them right now. Guess I may have to dig my old monitor out of the closet later and check out the photos on there.

All of these photos passed the screeners.

Thanks for any comments.

I only had a quick look at your photos, but my brief comments are (in the order of your photos on that webpage):

1. too far away (i.e. plane too small)
2. too far away and not sharp
3. too far away
4. too far away and dark patch on the right
5. weather was not good, and you should crop away some of the airbridge
6. not sharp enough, and there's a fence in the foreground.
7. not sharp enough (have you tried sharpen/unsharp mask/sharpen edges etc in Photoshop?)
8 this one's got quite a lot of grain hte sky

I don't have time to look at the rest, but I hope you've got an idea of what's wrong (at least what I think!)

Don't worry, I got 26 rejected two days ago!

Hi Jason,
your pics are not sharp enough and in some of them the a/c is a) too far away, b) not centered. They also have too much jpg-compression. Your night shots have some reflections. You should also lower the contrast a little bit.

23 of 26? Sounds like me.  Smile

#1: I don't really see why it was rejected, the quality looks good to me.

#2: A bit in the distance, also a little blurry.

#3: A bit unsharp, but otherwhise a good pic.

#4: See #3.

That's all I have time to look through. Good luck in the future.  Big thumbs up

Thanks for the comments so far. As far as the jpeg compression, that wasn't a factor in the uploads. I reduced the size of the photos I posted as I figured most people wouldn't want to download 600kb photos. I don't think the a/c being too far away was an issue since I had some other ones rejected for that and I've had many others accepted at similar distance but who knows.....

Guess I'll try some of these again.

Thanks again,
