I've a question about taking photo's and how to save them.
I've been to Schiphol, took some photo's and thought that I finaly could upload to A.net. First uploaded them to my computer and liked the result. In my opinium HQ shots.
But the screeners were thinking different. No pic was added to the database. The photo's were to low in quality. And I have to agree with them. My pics can't compare with other photo's from other grapher's.
Just look at these pics. Such a good quality:

Your problem looks like resolution and size. Try putting the cameras settings on to highest quality picture, and the biggest picture size (which should be around 1800x1500..), and minimize the amount of compression when you save your photos.
At the moment, the file size of those photos are low, and they are not high enough to be on A.net.

Hi Stefan. Your shots look typical of early Schiphol shots of many people (including me).
#1: you notice it looks hazy. That's because at Schiphol humidity is often quite high and can ruin your shot. Composition is excellent IMO (though a.net does not like that angle a lot) but it looks a bit fuzzy. A good 1A or 1B (skylight) filter might have prevented that. You might be able to do something in PSP or Photoshop to make it stronger.
#2: somewhat similar. Looks like your depth of field is not quite good enough (fuselage is in focus, the winglet is slightly blurred).
#3: same story, maybe somewhat overexposed too.
#4: camera somewhat tilted, and again the Schiphol haze making the sky look grey on a clear blue day.
#5: see #1

First thanks for the reply's.
Well, I will start at the beginning:
The camera I'am using is an Sony DSC-F505V with a Carl Zeis lens. so we couldn't blame the lens.
About the action shots. I think Gerry is right. First day photographing, try to get TOO beautiful shots. I noticed in the newest additions to the database that there were a lot of "standard" shots. (taxing planes ect.) I think I should start like that.
About my name: A bit funny, but I used Photo.net as a tempory webspace to show you the shots. So Jan Jansen = Stefan Wittenberg
The file size I used that time was 1280x960. So next time I will using 2240x1680 and than crop to 1024x...
The only bad thing is that I could make less pictures at one day (64MB memory stick)
JWenting, thanks for you photo by photo command.
But what should I do the next time when I visit AMS? (behalve the picture size)
