Hello,

So I have sent this image which got rejected due to being grainy:

http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=p1350399687.9106img_6031.jpg

The first 2 rejections were mainly because it was soft, which I corrected by giving it some sharping(to the whole picture).
In my opinion I think it's exagerated because I don't see almost any grain. I would like to ask for some opinion(s) to see what can I do to improve the image  

Regards

There's a slight amount of noise in the shadows. Should be easy to fix. Noise often get introduced to an image when you sharpen it, so you shouldn't be totally surprised.

Hello,

Thanks for your help! I'm aware that images can get noisy but in this particular case I didn't think it would get rejected because of grain.
So all I have to do is to select the shadows and remove some noise?

Yes, that should take care of the noise, but it does also still look a little soft to me.

Dana, a quick question again about the noise removal:

I've used: Strenght 6, preserved 80% of the details, reduced 5% of color noise and sharpen details are at 25%. I'm note sure if I should be a bit more "harsh" in treating the photo...

To be honest, I don't see much difference between this one and the rejected; on the other hand, the rejected doesn't need much adjustment, so just be sure you don't overdo it.

Hello again.

Got this one rejected because it was high in frame and high contrast:
http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=p1350920165.4716img_4808.jpg
The contrast I agree, the centered reason...it's sort of confusing. The aircraft body is in the middle, I even lowered a bit because of the tail but still wasn't enough.

I also wanted to ask for some opinion about these 3:

Centering looks fine, though the contrast is still harsh, and looking again it might need a bit of cw rotation.

Corrected the B737 again:

About the A340, I'm not sure because I lined the horizon according to the airport lamps, it was the best reference in the picture.

Fixed noisy sky, I think this time it's ok.

Are you sure you gave it CW rotation? It looks like you gave it CCW rotation to me. It needs to be rotated more to the right, not left.

Oversharpened? Can't see that. It's not dark so much as the contrast is a little harsh (which makes certain areas look darker). Try reducing the contrast a little, and also brightening just slightly, and see how it looks.

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...ready/j1352563421.3308img_6101.jpg

First time I uploaded it was rejected only because it was soft(I only sharped the aircraft), at the second time I sharped the whole picture and the rejection reasons increased: blurry, dark, soft, etc...

Like I said above for both: it's not really the exposure that is the problem, it's the poor contrast. I think the first is more fixable, but you will be able to do that by adjusting the levels/contrast more than by just increasing the exposure.

Also would like to ask if you think this one has any chance or if it's possible to fix:

Don't think so, the quality looks quite poor.

Hello again,

A quick question about this picture: http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...2259largadanuno30marode2011320.jpg
I had no other chance than cutting the tail on this one, is it acceptable?

Looks pretty sloppy. It is ok to crop the tail, but generally only if it serves a purpose. Yours looks like it happened by accident.

I'll try another picture then.

I got this one rejected: http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...21120_b1352828649.5543img_5930.jpg
I didn't receive any e-mail confirming the rejection but I came here to the website and the reasons were: "needs CCW rotation level personal"

What does the personal mean?

Both rejected due to needing counter-clockwise rotation. The second one was firstly rejected because it only needed more contrast and that's what I did, there was no level rejection. Do you think it's worth appealing?

How could jetwash be affecting the aircraft?? Are you implying there's another aircraft taking off directly in front of the EasyJet we can't see? I highly doubt it. In any case, jet wash is rarely a cause for rejection, so it would be a good idea not to confuse it with heat haze.

Sorry, that's even more confusing..you're saying the jetwash is somehow traveling in front of the aircraft? In any case, not much point in debating something that has no relevance to the quality of the image.

I think that if this one doesn't work, it's no use. The exposure in the aircrafts behind is too strong, I tried to lower as much as I could but it would get too dark.

Gave it a bit more sharp.

Not sure about the horizon, also in the cropping I decided to include the antenna.

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...54225029.13811dejunhode2011017.jpg
Well, I think that this one would get rejected because of the interference of the propeller but since the aircraft in the middle shows the nose pretty well I wanted to ask if it's worth to leave it in the queue.

The fourth is jaw dropping. It might get rejected, as you said for the prop in front. Other than that, it looks fine to me.

#3

This one is probably the worst of the three; some haze and poor light, I'm not sure if you could fix this one.

I forgot to put this one a few days ago. Got rejected because of overexposed(I think it's a bit exagerated) and dirty(dust spot in the left up corner). That "dirt spot" is actually a bird, I forgot to mention that.

I decided to try and appeal the photo of the 737 (#3) in the previous post.

Exposure is better for the first two; third is a bit dark and needs ccw rotation.

Do you think it's a bit high in the frame? It got rejected because of that but I thought it was low in the frame.

#1 http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=r1356052935.7892img_4003.jpg
First it got rejected because it was soft(corrected for that only), now the most recent rejection is because it has a yellow cast and still soft.

Grainy, soft and dark. The only thing I may agree with is the grain, still I think it's not too bad.

1. Looks very over-exposed towards the nose and a bit oversharpened.
2. Not too far off, but could be a bit less brighter in the rear.
3. Kind of hard to tell, but the nose looks a bit blurry to me. The rest looks oversharpened to me.

Quoting riflex (Reply 129):
This one because of overexposure and over-sharpened which I asked for opinions a few posts back.
Quoting riflex (Reply 129):
Rejected for overexposure.

Think exposure should be passable, but can see a bit of oversharpening on the first (and the second for that matter).

Quoting riflex (Reply 129):
Corrected this one for the soft nose.

Not sure you'll be able to make it any better without losing quality, so maybe try this version, and if it's a no-go, just put it aside.

Hello,

Thank you for both answers. I'll skip the first two and post in the next reply.

Would like to ask for an opinion on those:

Hopefuly not too dark and not sure about the horizon.

50/50 about the light(if it's too backlit or not), blurry in any part?

Yes, it is fairly grainy in the sky, and in the shadows/belly of the aircraft. It isn't that bad, but it is there, and with this site's hyper-sensitive grain attitude, it is a bit grainy. It is also a tad soft, but really not that bad.

You can fix vignetting with software, but it often leaves pretty bad halos or banding. Better to stop down your lens a little more next time to avoid it.

It's a combination. Soft in the low-contrast (darker, in this case) areas but too sharp in the high contrast areas (the brighter parts, in this case). The jagged edges are most apparently on the edges of the winglets and tail, since those are the most high contrast elements.

It looks like it might be hazed as well.

The haze isn't as apparent as on the Star Alliance TAP, so it might be fixable, but getting those shadowy areas sharp is going to be hard as you might get some grain going on in those shadows if you sharpen those areas.

Got a few rejections that I want to ask if you guys agree:

#1 http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=b1360101651.1361img_8371.jpg
Rejected due to level(needs CW rotation it says) and overexposure. The overexposure reason is a bit exagerated I think but the level I may agree more, I don't have a clear object to level so I tried to guide myself by the roof of the houses.

#2 http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=d1360098791.1563img_4008.jpg
Rejected due to softness. I had to eliminate some noise that was in the shadows and sky so that might explain part of the soft parts. Is there any other place in the aircraft that I should take a look?

#3 http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=d1360102083.7003img_4049.jpg
