What are badborders, there are no borders around this picture at al. This is the full frame as shot.

I swear I have reuploaded and cropped the same picture like 3-4 times before getting accepted. Try cropping in a few pixels on each side just to be safe.

Nice shot!

But in my point of view the photo need a 0,3-0,5 CW in photoshop when I look to the light tower above the fuselage.
Also remove the 2 dust points, 1 is just above the fuselage to the right of the light tower, the second is in top of the photo in the darker clouds and right above the first dust point.

Maybe the screener are refer to these two things because the "badborders" I can,t see.

Could it be the tiny band of lightness just above the copyright bar? Very subtle, but I think that's what it may be.

Thin white bar along the bottom (and probably all around too). We screen against a dark background so its much more obvious to us if there's a border like that, in comparison to viewing the image in an empty white browser window or in Photoshop.

How do you do your processing? I've found Photoshop sometimes does this when you copy an image and then paste it into a new file (where PS picks the dimensions for the canvas based on what you're copying). Crop a few pixels either side and top and bottom - use crop though - and I think you'll find the border goes away. Check the image against a dark background before uploading it again.

I guess, it is a thin white border, as suggested by Andy. I had this, when I used Photoshop LE for post processing. I happened when I resized a picture using the crop tool.

Yes, exactly as Andy says. Open it up in PS, or on dark-blue background and there is a very obvious pale (1-pixel?) border all the way around.

Thanks all. The weird thing is, when I view the uploaded image on a black background the outer 1px are a tint lighter. When I view my original file which I've uploaded it doesn't have that. Verry strange. I'll just crop of a px and reup again when I have PS installed again.
Just deleted all my partitions on all my disks and reinstalling everything. Now moving files back from backup harddrives. 400Gb copy takes forever :P.
