Why would they convert the beacon light to LED? LEDs are essentially maintenance free, and may last the whole useful life of the aircraft? best regards Thomas I thought LEDs were pretty much maintenance-free too, but the large number of cars I have seen with failed LED light clusters has made me re...Jump to post
Apologies if this is in the wrong area of the site. I'm interested in views on the level of security for flights recently. On my last two flights I have experienced what I think are major lapses on security, but others may view these as minor. The first was when travelling with my wife to Madeira fr...Jump to post
OK - here is the next (final?) version with highlights at 0. Do you think this is now suitable for submission?
I think halos are my biggest blind spot so your help is much appreciated.
Thanks to all once again. HIF is obviously easy and I've had another look at the halos with fresh eyes this morning!. The basic, un-edited image simply had the exposure increased by about 20%, with no definition increase and a 40ish% sharpness increase. Noise was reduced and contrast increased very ...Jump to post
Edited with 'photos' on MacBookPro and 'Pixlr'. Initially sharpened to around +95% then reduced to around +70% after your first thoughts. I initially took a dropper colour sample of the blue sky on 'Pixlr' and replaced the whole sky to guarantee elimination of the halos, but your view was that it lo...Jump to post
Kaphias - many thanks for the advice - hope it works.
I was hoping for pre-screening on a photo not yet in the A.net system, and therefore I simply tried to copy and paste my image into my message. Is this not possible on A.net? Do images that are seeking pre-screening somehow need to be in the A.net system before the viewing can take place? Sorry to b...Jump to post
I would much appreciate some pre-screening thoughts on the attached photo, please.
I will try going that small but it will destroy a lot of quality and therefore inevitably introduce different rejection criteria. I still maintain that, if I look at two photos that fill 80% of my screen, the quality should be obviously comparable.
Thanks again for the thoughts.
Agreed, but, assuming the average upload size is around 1700px, then my similar-sized ones should appear very similar when viewed at a similar frame size on my screen. My point was that they don't seem to and that claims of blurriness and/or softness in my shots don't seem right from my viewings. I ...Jump to post
OK - the reverse also holds true - the aim for comparison purposes is to get similar-sized photo frames on my screen. If I am not to zoom in on an A.net shot, then I can zoom out of my shots to make them as small as the A.net shots appear, which increases my shots' apparent sharpness and clarity to ...Jump to post
Many thanks, but not all A.net shots look bad - some are in stunning quality even when zoomed. Wouldn't all photos, no matter what their source, be treated the same by my screen? As a further test, I compared the two photos I have had accepted by looking at them on A.net, and they appear considerabl...Jump to post
JKPhotos - yes, agreed - A.net shots need to be enlarged/zoomed to fill my screen, but I did the same enlargement with those and my submitted shots for direct comparison. The enlarged A.net shots looked far worse (in general) than my enlarged 1920p or 1850p shots, for example, when both are equally ...Jump to post
I have been a member for seven years, but have only recently started to upload photos more frequently for consideration. I have had two accepted out of about 33. I am using a MacBookPro and its built-in editor, plus the 'GIMP' editor for scaling. I have been scaling to between 1700 and 1920p wide, d...Jump to post

I'm having a series of rejections for what I consider strange reasons of late. Would anyone be kind enough to give their thoughts on these shots, please?
Again - I appreciate the response. My problem is that I very rarely need to reduce the size of my photos with such a high standard of recipient quality and am therefore somewhat ignorant of the issues that go with it. I don't use 'Photoshop' as such, but have yesterday tried "GIMP' which is app...Jump to post
May I ask for your thoughts on this post-screened shot, please.
Hello - I consider myself fairly adept at on-line forums and photography posts, but I cannot for the life of me work out how to attach successfully a photo here for review by users! I would appreciate any assistance, please. I have tried attaching via the "attachments" tab, and I see a gre...Jump to post
My apologies if this is the wrong thread for this query, but does anyone know if Fleet Road (SW end of main runway) is open to pedestrians/cyclists during the airshow? It's shown simply as 'closed' on the local council web site.

[photoid]https://flic.kr/p/KtVtEp/photoid] Forgive my ignorance, but how common is it for aircraft to fly with a winglet missing?
