Re: Rejection reason: Photog

Hello Dysko, Its possible the screener accidently ticked the wrong box. He might have meant to tick motive for too much empty space in the frame, but thats just my guess. You could appeal and then you would get clarification. The "photog" reason for a rejection is rarely used. Hope this he...

Re: High in Frame rejecting help

You should consider the vertical tail when centering the aircraft in the frame. Both examples are very nice photos but much too high in the frame. Try re-cropping both to lower the aircraft in the frame.
Hope this helps

Re: Permanent "oversharpened" rejections

Hi Rainer,
In the case of the first one, the Condor 757, the leading edges of the wings and stab and winglets are showing jaggies, not huge, but an indication of OS. Also, the titles are showing slight jaggies. There is often a fine line between OS and soft. I hope this helps you to see this

Actually, it looks blurry and soft. It might help if you were not using that slow a shutter speed. Even at 1/400 and with that 3 blade prop you would get nice blur on the prop. Hope this helps

If a screener sees a dust spot anywhere on the image, very likely it will be rejected. Certain circumstances such as rarity or unique situations may be enough to gain acceptance, and probably the decision would be left with the head screeners.
