My goal was to have one photo accepted for the first 20 pics sent. Not for the fact of having one pic published in the best a/c pics database, but for having a pro quality on my pics (my photographers skills were really poor ). I examined accepted pics and read every photography thread with regards to quality, post processing and photography techniques; so I became a better photographer (that's what this forum is supposed to be!)
Yesterday I had #19 rejection. This time for "level"
I don't want to show the whole pic because I don't want to hear things like "the pitot seems to be out of focus" or "the tip of the wingtip is slightly oversharpened". Such things are heard often in this forum and i've had enough.
I know being a screener is not easy. If you have to choose one pic from 20 with similar good quality, you choose the one that catchs your eye; or simply one of them. I've seen here, as most of you, not-so-good , fake , pale and boring pics. I've seen striking shots also. But just show me a perfect shot and I'll show you where's the fault.
I've reached the conclusion that having a pic acepted is a matter of luck.
I don't care about #20 attempt because I've achieved my aims, no matter if I don't have even an acceptance and no matter what a screener would say.
In all sincericity, Thanks to all. I've learned a lot here with you
