Photo Acceptance - Post Screening (Sharktt)

Tue May 26, 2009 5:46 pm

Hello everyone!

I would like to start by saying that I'm getting a little bit disappointed with some of the work done by some screener´s lately. Don't think I'm saying that EVERY screener is doing this (that's not what I'm saying, because there's some pretty darn good screeners around Airliners!!).

Today I got to my desk, and when I opened my e-mail, I saw two of my pictures rejected! OK until here, but the problem is the reason the screener gives my for reject it!! See for yourself:

Reason: Soft (???)
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20090526_r1242675026.5381f-gstc-2.jpg

Reason: Colour (again, ???)
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20090526_n1242675589.407n799al.jpg

This is another one, rejected a few days ago
Reason: Contrast Colour
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20090518_x1241985683.430100-9001.jpg

Please, give me your feedback!! I've been seeing some pretty ugly pictures here (and worse, they're reaching the TOP). Nice motive and all, but the quality of these are really not the best (or not quite what A.net as been offering to us). It's kind of shocking for me to see this, but oh well...

Best Regards from the Azores,
Paulo Santos

This is priceless.

The Beluga is a tough one though it could use a little more USM.

The 757 looks ok to me but the DC-8 seems a bit cold on the WB.
Hey that guy with the private jet can bail us out! Why? HE CAN AFFORD IT!

The Beluga looks a little soft on the vert stab, but be careful sharpening because the titles are on the verge of over-sharpening.

The '57 seems a little bit blue to me - the white isn't white. Marginal call on this one but the white not being white enough is the reason for the contrast call.

The last one is a touch cold as mentioned and a bit high on contrast.

I wouldn't be too discouraged, these are generally very good quality. Everyone gets rejections.
Improvise, adapt, overcome.

The Beluga....that is a tough call; I'd be annoyed too at that result. It all looks fine to me. Sometimes when I look at photos with the hint of glare reflecting off the side flightdeck windows as in this photo, I see the 'illusion' of softness. I don't know about the vertical tail, I think the dark vegetation against the sloping bright white tail, contrasts to make it look soft on your screens....

DC-8...The colour temperature may well be a little cold, but you have had other photos accepted here recently with those settings such as image 1520961. The nose and other parts I thought are verging on over-exposed

757....this photo does look muddy and has contrast/color issues. I don't know your camera, but when I use my Canon 400D on bright sunny days on white aircraft, my photos always turned out a bit 'weird' for lack of the technical reason! I always struggled to get them to look right in Photoshop too.

The only other thing I can think of in regards to your colour problem Paulo, is maybe the screener/s thought you had too much colour saturation in your photos.

There are others much more knowledgeable than me snooping around here, reading your thread that could add more I'm sure...Anyone

Thank you all for the replyies!!
I only wanted some feedback, since I saw nothing wrong with them!! And since I'm seeing some worst quality pictures beying accepted, I wanted to know what was going wrong

Best Regars,

Hi Paulo,
I had the same problem (probably still have it) a while ago.
Everything looked great on my screen but most of the shots came back with colour and soft rejects. I felt the same way, than realised I could not do anything but to pruduce photos the screeners will like and accept. Later on I also found out that my monitor's sharpness setting played a key role, it was set too high thus even soft images looked sharp enough.
Regards,
Gabor
Your photos are like your children, you will always find them perfect.

I see you've managed to get the DC-8 accepted Paulo....  thumbsup 

Did you appeal the first screening or did you re-edit you're picture and try again? I'm leaning towards the appeal road as it looks the same to me!

Anyway, well done.....oh, any word on the Beluga?

Cheers

Macairmetro, I did not upload the DC8 again, i appealed it!! The Beluga they reject it after appealing, but saying nothing (once again!!!). I've got another one waiting for screening :P
