Blurry&Soft rejection?

Sun Nov 19, 2017 4:41 am

Hi all,
Recently I have been receiving rejections including both Blurry and Soft on some pics. But subject to the acceptance guide, when a photo is classified as "soft," it does not mean it is blurry, as direct quota says in the guideline "this does not mean they are blurry or out of focus." So i'm kinda confused with the reasons correspond to the rejects. (as i personally have no any offense to anyone)
Hope someone can clarify that:)

Hi, Jike
If it's possible maybe you can post some photos here to us in order to see the situation.
From my understanding, if " Blurry " and " Soft " appear at the same time which means that the screener(s) might consider that some parts of the aircraft seems very soft compared to other parts. And this effect will make screener(s) or people feel Blurry. Well, i encounted this situation many times before and some screeners might tell you which parts is soft by leaving a PM to you but some might not. However, if the screener(s) only gives you " Soft " reason which means that the whole aircraft looks soft and it deserves more sharpness. If screener(s) only gives you " Blurry " which means most of parts or the whole picture looks blurry and it's serious. In addition, if you get " Oversharpened" and " Soft " at the same time it has the same meaning of getting " Soft " and " Blurry" i think.
Those are only my personal perspectives. You can wait for screener(s) to give you more explanations !

Best wishes,
I am a Guangzhou Spotter. My photos are here : ... =viewCount :D

If I use blurry AND soft, it means that the photo is soft due to being blurry. Blurry then is to indicate that the softness is likely unfixable.
