Hi
i'd be grateful if someone could confirm just what is wrong with this one - I didn't get a rejection email for some reason, but looking on 'rejected photos' it says it was rejected for grain, quality and editing. There might possibly be a bit of grain in it although from memory I was pretty careful to get rid of it, considering the scope for grain on a grey aircraft. But I don't undersnand the quality and editing rejections at all - I just used my normal workflow and I'm not sure what was in the screeners mind.

All help gratefully received (and I hope the link works as it wasn't straightforward given the lack of rejection email!)
Thanks
John

Not sure what is wrong with the editing, but the rejection box for editing is next to the one for contrast, so it's possible contrast was meant to be selected rather than editing. Grainy, contrast, and quality (minor heat haze?) seem more reasonable.

Thanks Dana. I'm assuming your concern with the contrast is low contrast rather than too much? I always find it difficult to judge when the plane is all grey. but I thought I'd got it about right. If I can fix the contrast and grain, is it worth another go?
Thanks again for your help.

Looks a little harsh to me.

I don't see why not.

Thanks will give it a go.
Just had this one rejected for grain and oversharpened but I'm struggling to see which specific areas are affected.

I'd be grateful if someone could point me to the particular areas that are oversharp and/or grainy because none of it looks too bad to me and I did run the noise filter over the most likely areas for grain.
Thanks in advance.

It looks ok to me.

Thanks - in which case I'll try an appeal.

Hi again
The appeal on the Jet 2 was successful - thanks for help with that.
I've just had another one rejected for which there was no rejection email and I'm struggling to interpret what it says as rejection reasons on the rejected photos page - it says 'dark not seeing the blurry soft'!!!

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...1125_t1353171234.7625jgiaimr01.jpg

I'm not sure what I'm meant to take from that as rejection reasons - the only thing I can see that might be a problem is the titles which are perhaps a little soft (and I can see how a screener might feel they are blurry although they can't be as the rest of the aircraft isn't blurry).
Any thoughts anyone?
Thanks in advance
John

You can appeal that one too.

Thanks Dana - now in the appeal queue will see what happens.

A bit of pre-screening advice please - I'm concerned about levelling this one.
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...y/i1354381840.3801jgglsakquick.jpg

Note that I haven't done anything to it yet other than crop roughly and resize to make it manageable.
I don't think there is anything on it to use as a reference for levelling. I tried giving it sufficient CCW rotation to get the taxiway horizontal in the frame, but that made the perspective look all wrong. To my eyes, it looks OK as it is but I'd weclome any views.
Thanks in advance.

The only strong vertical I can see is the yellow (taxiway sign?) behind the nose gear. That tells me it needs just a touch of ccw, but I wouldn't give it so much that you would try to level the taxiway itself.

Thanks for the levelling guidance.
On a different note, I've had this one rejected for both grain and oversharpened:

I'm struggling to see any particular areas which need attention and I was very careful about the grain to start with. I'd be grateful if someone could point out the specific areas which need a bit more noise reduction and/or a bit less sharpening.
Thanks in advance.

I don't see noise as a big problem, but it does seem a little oversharpened in places.
