Photo Accepted, Missing And Then Rejected.

Sun Feb 08, 2009 4:27 am

I have a photo accepted a few weeks ago.

We have accepted the following photo(s) into our database:
View all here:

- g1232098920.8926m3002_szb.jpg (Malaysia - Air Force Lockheed C-130H Hercules (L-382))

Unfortunately it was during the beginning of the watermark issue, and the photo, together with many others, went missing.

The issues has died down, so I reupload the photo, with a note to the screeners that it was a reupload of a previously accepted photo.

It was a surprise that the very same photo is rejected this time.

We have had to reject the following photos:
- z1233730835.0084m3002_szb.jpg (Malaysia - Air Force Lockheed C-130H Hercules (L-382))

These photo(s) have a "soft" appearance. This does not mean they are blurry or out of focus, but that they need an extra kick of sharpness. With the help of image editing software, this is usually fairly easy to do. If you want to read more about this problem, and about possible ways to correct it and hopefully attempt a re-upload, please go to

Any explanation here? I have no problem of having my photos rejected (almost half of my uploads are rejected anyway) but having a photo accepted and then rejected is a bit frustrating.

Note: the uploaded picture was M3002_SZB.jpg. The prefixes are generated by the system.
