RE: Pre-Screening Thread No. 5

Mon Oct 20, 2008 4:50 pm

I have this picture rejected with centered reason. I know I have a little tail high, but the nose is centered and some screeners prefer this way to center the frame. The problem is that if I surely low the tail to another screener will say me this looks low.

Big version: Width: 1355 Height: 915 File size: 269kb


I would like some help to correct and re-uploaded the picture or if is worth appeal.

Regards

Bustin

Quoting Bustin (Reply 1):

I'd prefer it a little lower as well, not too much. I think it's better to aim for the top of the fuselage and not the nose.

Quoting AA173HVY (Reply 2):

1: Not too bad, but a bit soft. Would possibly like a closer crop since now it looks like you just lost the wing tips

2: Distance, way too much empty space around the aircraft, and also soft/blurry and dark

3: I quite like this one, but excess space in front of the nose, and downsize to 1024 pixels wide, that will cover other issues

4: Distance, over exposed, chromatic aberration, quality

I think since it's one of only 4 known to be in existence, It should go up!!
It does need a bit of CW rotation though.

AA173HVY,

Post-capture processing will normally help, however I'm afraid all these have serious quality issues which I doubt can be corrected.

Once again guys, feedback on these edits I did for a friend (were at the bottom of last pre-screen thread and will therefore now not be scrutinised) - different to my normnal workflow so I was worried about any softness.

By this do you mean crop tighter? The plane's left WT was not in the pic, so I cropped the other one out to center it a bit more.

Please ignore the frame and the fact that the 'core' pic is only 960px wide - both would be corrected if I would upload it here.

Dale,

1600's OK but best to use 1024x683 as this will hide any tiny quality issues.

Nice shot, although I'd tone down the brightness (highlights look a bit washy) and give it a kick of contrast.

US Airways

No chance - there is a ground vehicle obstructing the nose-gear and it seems to be the wrong size.

Northwest

Nice shot but bad crop (not centered properly), wrong upload size and appears to need slight CCW rotation.

Wing shot

Just doesn't do it for me I'm afraid. Boring; not much to look at and there's a curious streak top-right, about 3cm from the edge of the frame. Also wrong size.

Midwest

Possible but I'd crop closer in on the nose right-hand side. Also looks slightly soft on my monitor.

I just took this one. I can't get the plane vertical centered since the crop (1024*683) touches the edge of the picture. Does the former Fokker factory with the Fokker planes still justify the shown crop ?

Are these ones good enough to upload?? If yes, which one does make the most chance?? The first picture was also provided in pre-screening thread 4, but in this one, the levels are enhanced.

I'd accept the crop, but then again, I'm no screener. Front edge of vertical stabiliser and winglets look jaggy though.

Hi to all:
Again, I have other picture rejected with centered reason. I know I have a little tail high, but some screeners prefer this way to center the frame (some frame hight). The problem is that if I surely low the tail to another screener will say me the frame looks low.

Big version: Width: 1250 Height: 833 File size: 404kb


I appealed the first picture post up in this thread (B-737 Europe Airpost) and the picture was accepted. Now, I think is the same problem.

I would like some opinion. I think this is more a different screeners criteria that a really incorrect picture.

Regards

Made a couple of changes to bring this one into the accepted dimensions, rather than a 'panoramic' shot of the entire aircraft and wingspan, and sorted out the sharpness to reduce the 'jaggies' on the company name

Opinions please

Uploaded this one for the 3rd time, was rejected for over-sharpening the first and softness the second time, I think I've struck the right balance this time though. If it gets in it will be my first shot, after that I'll have an idea of what level of sharpness the screeners are after.

Was that photoshoped to look like that or is the lighting natural/artificial sources?

Could be creative enough to merit, however the crop is weird (why crop the nose?) and would probably prevent it from an upload.

My view is that the aircraft in the background is soft and too dull.
Motive: I think that may be a problem. you have two aircraft in the frame and really niether of them are showing anything close to a.net standards and quality.

I like the picture and really don't see the harm in leaving it in the queue. Why would a person be worried about leaving pictures in the queue?

Anyway, I would say pull it, but don't go solo on my advise; i have no photos here yet.

I love this shot, it's cropped quite heavily but the wider view just doesn't have the same impact.

Your second picture, I can't see any issues with except the left wing is croped too much and is cut off. Other than that, it's the only thing i can think of that would give you a rejection.

Your first photo, if it wasn't for that stupid fense, the picture would be great. I think the fense is what's going to get it rejected. Because other than the fense, the picture is great.

Other than those two issues with your pictures, I would say their ready.

Thanks for the comments, I may have a go at removing the fence when I have more time.

Here's a wider crop of the second shot, there's a spot just below the left wing that I'll need to edit out and I'm not sure if it needs a slight rotation or not:

Well next to all the rejections I have a question concerning my last two uploads. I didn't receive a rejection nor did they show up in the database. Both cases would have caused an email that should have arrived as usual. Non of my settings changed and so my email adress didn't. I choosed to upload them to a.net and myaviation.net. So I can show you the links to my pics which were published on the sister site of a.net.

Quoting Nobbsie (Reply 46):

Here's a wider crop of the second shot, there's a spot just below the left wing that I'll need to edit out and I'm not sure if it needs a slight rotation or not:

Why are you not going closer to the right wing? The left wing is closely cropped, yet there is a good inch from the tip to the end of the photo on the right. Totally off balance.
