RE: Consistency Improves - Dell Monitors For Screeners

Yeah, if it is possible to change the order I recommend <acronym title="Maersk Air (Denmark)">DM</acronym> to do that. The 22" Dell screen has a very bad <acronym title="Air Tahiti Nui (France)">TN</acronym>-panel and is very hard to calibrate to acceptable results. I've installed several 20" H-IPS-...

RE: How To Improve The Quality?

Cool photo, but I think it looks oversharpened/jagged and possibly heat haze all over the plane! I would never expect this to be accepted, but if Clickhappy would HQ it, go for it.

This has been up several times in the past but the info about DARK is still quite bad. DARK should only be selected before sunrise or after sunset (when the sun is no longer shining).

Don't appeal, re-upload without selecting any special category.

There is a lot of grain all over the picture and it is soft. Especially the forward section of the fuselage is soft. Overall the picture suffers from very bad quality, there is not just a little thing you can fix, that is why you got the quality rejection.
