Re: Photographer's choice

I think Karl was talking about trolling. Guys that vote arbitrary shots as a PC to make people look “bad” or guys that do whatever that suddenly these 4 mentioned shots block the front page likely to make anet look bad.
And yes that is sad.

Re: Photographer's choice

If the system is apparently not working perfectly fine with a large number of photographers being able to vo...

Was it screened before? I cannot find it on the log. Otherwise I can say it looks a bit flat (means it needs more contrast) and could use a bit more sharpening towards the back. Both are fixable.

The LH is not really blurry. The quality is not the best, but I don't see why it shouldn't make it if you go a bit smaller (1.400max) with some better sharpening on the back part.

The AA is a bit soft indeed and could do with a pass of sharpening allover.

Hey,

the Xiamen is still quite soft, especially towards the back (reg & titles). It needs quite a boost in sharpening.

The KC-46 looks okay to me & definitely better with the lifted shadows, though the overexposed background is a bit problematic, so be prepared for that.

Well other than being flat and hazy it's very toplit for a very common plane. I would let this one go.

Because it would need quite a boost in contrast which then accentuates the shadows. Try to shoot in better light / circumstances.

Hi,
well softness means the shot requires more sharpening on post processing. How you do that is depending on the programm you are using.
I was suspect the shot was also rejected for overexposed as highlights are blown out. So I would reduce exposure / tonw down highlights as well.
