Post Screening - Soft/Quality (INNflight)

Hi Flo..

Hope you are doing good. Neat shot, but the foreground causes the motiv rejection.

As for soft, the entire nose area is soft. Grain is also noticeable around the nose area.

Might be easier to see without the watermark.

Hope this helps.

RE: Photo Acceptance - Pre Screening (Pilotkev1)

First one has some potential.. Contrast is too low (flat) and it is OE. Work on that from the original (if you can) and it should be ok. Oh.. also needs some clockwise rotation.

Second one needs to be binned as it is too blurry and now oversharp to correct it being blurry.
