Hi guys,

i want to start a general thread form myself, so that I don't need to open another thread for every problem.

I had some rejections last night. Bus as I these were my first night shots, I was more or less expecting it.
I am already happy that the colours were allright!


But I do have some questions where I need your help:

This one was rejected for:
contrast level (needs CE rotation) personal
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...53249929.7298img_4043_crop_air.jpg

Contrast: Yes, okay. Soft: Well yes, can someone tell me where it is soft?
But why does it need a CW rotation? I adjusted the levels looking at the lamp posts and it seems allright for me.

This one was rejected for levels as well (and also for soft and contrast).
I can understand it in this case, but where do I need to orientate myself in this case in order to have a correct level?
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...3250028.8448img_4072_d_cropair.jpg

I am looking forward to your responses in order to improve my night shots.
I am still learning.

Many thanks!

regards

Jay

Quoting JKPhotos (Thread starter):

I can see a little CW (not CE?) to level the verticals, and definitely some more contrast.

Quoting JKPhotos (Thread starter):

Not really any reference points for level, so I don't think there is much to base it on, though I admit it would look better with CCW rotation.

Both images would benefit from being submitted at a smaller size as well.

Hi,

many thanks for your response. CE was a tiping mistake, sorry for that, I meant CW of course.

I took care of your advice and adjusted my pictures.

Here is the new version of the Lufthansa:
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...4051735.173img_4043_a1cropanet.jpg

and here the new version of the Niki:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...847.9487img_4072_cropair_final.jpg

and yes I agree that the level looks better now.

Are they allright now? Is the contrast okay?

Jay

To be honest, the light on the LH was never that great to begin with, so it will be borderline no matter what you do with it. The Niki looks ok now.

Contrast should be ok, but if possible give it a bit of ccw rotation and place it slightly higher in the frame.

It was not mentioned in the first rejection, but anyway I do see the point. Also I think it has only slightly a blue cast.

How do you see it?
What would bei the best way to remove the blue cast?

I am thankful for some help.

Yes, the aircraft in the photo looks a bit blue to me, I would edit the whitebalance in the raw file. If you only have a jpeg, try editing the color balance.

I think at least the green cast is almost gone now.

I will delete yesterday's version shortly. I just left it in the upload queue to have a comparison.

Hi,

just got this picture rejected:
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...5578919.0629img_0369-anetfinal.jpg

Reason: low in frame.

Do you really consider this as being low in frame?

I wanted to ask this question for quite a time now: for me the tail is part of the aircraft, too. So in this case it would be centered as it is. Only if you just look at the fuselage it could be considered low in frame.
Otherwise there is roughly the same space above and under the aircraft.

So should I focus the centering (crop) more on the fuselage?


Thanks

I reduced the saturation, because I felt the colours looked too strong before. Possibly this was a mistake and is the reason why it looks washed out?


And I did brighten it to some extent to avoid a dark rejection.

I took some deicing shots yesterday.

Problem was, it was snowing at that time.

I'm afraid that because of the falling snow visible in the sky it could be considered as grainy?!

Another question:

Would this be a motive rejection? (Because of the deicing truck)
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...532747.7137img_4428a2cropfinal.jpg

I saw other pictures on the site with deicing-trucks, so I guess in some cases they might be accaptable even if they block certain areas of the aircraft.

Still I am not sure on this one, although I definitely like the picture.

Worth a try? Or not.

Looking forward for your opinions on this one.

Generally better if the vehicle is not blocking anything important (gear, engine), but the motive may be sufficiently interesting here to make an exception. I would be ok with it, but couldn't promise everyone else would be.

Hi guys,

I was in AMS the last few days and had the opportunity for some photos.

I have some questions on these two

1.) KLM MD-11: Level? I adjusted the level according to the horizon. For me it looks okay, but I am not so sure if a screener would share this opinion.

Hi Dana,

thank you very much for your kind feedback.

I actually found it hard to level the pictures, because there seem to be a lot of unlevelled lamp posts in Schiphol which can be quite confusing.

Quoting dlowwa (Reply 34):

Yes. Yes, but only because of the tails in the background.

I therefore included it in the "tail" category.
So my last question:
Am I right to do so? (as it is not a full tail close-up)


Thanks!

Hi,

I tried myself at some window-shots during my last flight.

As trying to get a decent quality out of window shots is pretty new to me I am not so sure if they meet the required quality-standards:

What about the sharpening on this one? Any other things to improve?
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...eady/q1361827443.8514img_4780a.jpg

I am not so sure on the framing of this one. Schiphol Airport with several runways is visible but unfortunately the view was not very clear on that day.
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...1361817196.6149img_4776_crop_a.jpg

Sky is blotchy in both, and the first also seems to be suffering from some oversharpening/quality issues. Borderline motive on the second, but I suppose enough of the airport is visible to make it worthwhile.

Made this shot yesterday.
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...64163680.0422img_5207cropfinal.jpg

It is levelled according to the horizon, but I am afraid that this might be a case where there is a difference in what is really level and what feels to be level, as the horizon is hardly visible due to the night-time.

So should I give it some CCW?

Thanks,

It is of course red / yellow, but given the time it was taken it is natural.

Would this be a colour problem (rejection) or is it still passable for anet standards the way it is?

Thanks for your advice.

I would indeed suggest brightening it, along with adding a little contrast. The sky also looks fairly compressed, so you might want to check that.

Better? Still any issues which could lead to a rejection?

to compare here is the old one:

Thank you very much.

Here is the picture I was referring to (EK):

Color looks fine, though it is soft.

This is my new edit:

Did you add sharpening as well? Looks as though you did. That coupled with the increased exposure/contrast has added noise and degraded the quality a bit.

Thanks, I will add a bit of sharpening and then it should be fine.
But this makes me worry of another shot I took on that day as I did the same workflow on both.
Is this one a bit soft, too?

I started from the scratch so I did not really add sharpening, but I think the problem is that on my first edit I only sharpenend the wing, whereas on the second one I only disselected the sky and sharpened everything else, this was probably a mistake and led to the degraded quality.

I will work on it, at least I seem to be on the right track.

Forget the question on the QR, it was just added to the db, so I guess it was allright. Can't change my post anylonger.  

On my window-shot I actually realized that in fact the problem seems to be on the wing..I'll try to sharpen it less.

Did a re-edit of both questionable shots.

Unfortunately in case of the EK I wasn't aware that it was due to screening and so it was rejected although I knew this was going to happen thanks to Dana's post.


Anyway here ist the reworked EK Sky Cargo (added some sharpening):

rejected version:

here is my newest edit of the window-shot BCN landing

original version:

Are they okay right now?

Thanks.

Please try to avoid this in the future. If I find that people are ignoring advice (or simply forgetting it), I generally stop giving it, as it's a waste of time for me, the person who has to screen the image, and the people behind you in the queue who had to wait a little bit longer because you left your image in.

Hi Dana,

I will absolutely avoid it, like I said before it wasn't on purpose. I did not pull it off immediately as I wanted to keep the comment for the moment I do the new upload. Next time I will check the position in the queue first and / or simply save the comment somewhere else.
It was a stupid mistake, sorry for that. I do neither want to create additional work for the team nor am I keen on rejections.

I would appreciate if you could still give me some feedback on my newest edits, thanks.
