RE: Photo Acceptance - Pre Screening (zacsg132)

Thu Jul 30, 2009 9:19 pm

Hi Zac,

1. Dunno lol. Could possibly be a bit grainy on the bottom side of the fuselage and maybe a bit jagged along the back of the tail. And the grass in front of the front landing gear could be a motive rejection..
2. I think it's great - maybe a touch more sharpening at the nosewheel and nose
3. Contrast/sharpness? Is there any way to make the British Airways title a bit more bold? A tiny bit more sharpness too around the wingtip. Could be centered a little bit better - shifted a little more to the right as there's quite a bit of deadspace in front of the nose.
4. Not bad, but the rego on the nosewheel looks a bit blurry/soft.. haha
5. Got a feeling that you'll get picked up for jagged edges along the "blue" of the main Virgin Blue title. Any way of sharpening the front Embraer title up? But apart from that it's great.
6. Not sure - looks a little soft around the place apart from the underside.

Cheers,
Nicholas

Funny how anytime someone asks for Pre-screening....no matter how good the picture(s) is/are, someone always finds something wrong with it.

In my opinion, they are all worth a try for upload....if they reject something for a reason, correct it and try again. If they still don't like it, don't waste your time and move on.

Just a small suggestion....might be a good idea to leave a bit more margin on either side of the picture....sometimes a level rejection can be fixed easier if you have some room to rotate and crop. Just my opinion....(2600 pics and counting...)
I'd rather be flying.

Well they do put the pics up here first for a reason.. Sometimes you miss out on some of the most trivial things which can be easily spotted by someone else and they can point this out to you. For someone like me, my acceptance ratio is horrible and because I have so few photos to upload, it greatly affects my chances of getting my quota increased. I'd say they're minor tweaks more than anything but some things are worth the tiny bit extra work.

Another point I also want to mention is that it clogs up the queues if you have so many images which are plain horrible on there! At least you could get some consensus from others without having to waste both the screeners' time and those with good images time because the screening queues are so long.

True....for most newbies asking for help is very beneficial. I checked out Zac's pictures and they have very good quality, so even with a limited pictures in the database, he already seems to know what to look for in a good picture.

As far as my comment about people finding what is wrong with a picture, I'm sure if I had my photos critiqued before upload, I would always get someone telling me what is wrong with it. Instead I just upload. Most of the time I don't have any amazing pictures, and sometimes I even upload stuff taken under bad conditions....but I still get them in most of the time...and if I don't, I have dozens of pictures to put in instead. (Yes, I know everyone doesn't have the luxury of 30-40pic upload limit).....but I started at Zero as well, and that is how I built my collection up.

Also if you notice, some of the most popular photos are the ones that break some of the screening rules...so not uploading a nice picture just because the public opinion would reject it is not good enough reason....check out this picture and you'll have to agree that it could be rejected on many levels.

Yes, I concur. I just want to help him out a little more to make sure those images get in. As you did see, they were extremely minor tweaks which may or may not be noticed. I believe that it just enhances editing skills a little more and helps in the long run.

Fair enough. Yeah, it'd be nice having a big limit too.

No fuss mate, you asked for help you got it! Only reason people find things wrong is that they are looking at it from an Anet point of view.

All are fine though. Good work.
