I wonder why the screener considered this to be a "common" image.
Because there are already 106 images of this a/c in the DB
, common refers to the number of pics in the DB
, not the nature of the picture.
The aircraft depicted in your photos was very common in the Airliners.net database, with many photos of this aircraft already present on the website.
In this case the standards for acceptance are higher than for aircraft of which we have fewer or no photographs on the database, and only photos of exceptional quality will be accepted.
Please understand that this is not a judgement on your abilities, as your picture may be of a technical quality which may be very decent. However, due to the common nature of the aircraft photographed, the highest standard is applied to avoid substantial duplication.
When uploading you should always check our database for the amount of photos we have of the particular aircraft you are uploading. If a particular aircraft or registration is common in our database, you may increase the likelihood your photos of it will be accepted by photographing it from an unusual angle, under exceptional lighting conditions, or with interesting scenery in the background.
Regarding your reedit, did you use s/h tool? I'm asking becuase the shadows look a bit on the bright side...but overall I'd say it's not dark. The sharpening is indeed tricky under such lightning, but to me it feels that in some areas it could use still some more selective sharpening (shadows).
This is a tough one but certainly one worth the effort! Good luck!
