Depends on rejection reason. I suspect the fence is causing a motive rejection. It is more useful to announce the rejection-reason(s) in post-screening.

Kind regards, Martijn

How stupid of me, please find below the rejections reasons:

There is a problem with the contrasts in these photo(s). The whites in the
image are not pure white, or the blacks are not pure black.
There may be several reasons for this problem, and depending this, it may
or may not be possible to correct it. 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

http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/reasons.php#contrast

The transition between solid lines on these photos have a very jagged
appearance. This may be due to general oversharpening of the image, but
there may also be other reasons for this problem.
In some cases the jagged appearance can be corrected. 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

http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/reasons.php#oversharpened

Should I darken the photo a bit as mentioned already? I take it that the sharpening rejection lies in the letters on the fuselage but how can not sharpen that section selectively, the letters are just too thin to avoid jagged edges in that area.


Best regards,

Hi Roger,

I think your picture could be saved if you start up with a new edit from scratch.
The titles and the vertical stabilizer are quite jagged and the contrast is off.
The picture also looks quite grainy to me.

Okay thanks Stefan. I will have a look at it. The graininess is an issue I sometimes have difficulty with. The fact that I also use an older version of PS (version 2.0) also plays its part. Editing photos with the newer versions seems to be far better than the relic 2.0 version it seems.

I will have a look at it again and thanks again  Smile

Best regards,

He said, that the image might be a bit dark too, not that you should make it darker  Wink
A solution for the sharpening might be to sharpen in layers.

Hi AirKas, it's been a long time hearing from you. Nice to see your reply here. I will also take into account your tip.

Best regards,

I still use some old Photshop Elements version that came with a scanner for jpg files and I'm still satisfied with it (though I also have CS3 for RAW files that I take from time to time).

Maybe you should consider getting a noise reduction programm, eg Neat Image. Properly used the output files look much better.
