What is the meaning behind this name?
I’m sure we can all cherry-pick outliers to prove a point.
UAL 777 looks fine to me. My United shots seem to have the same color cast. Those three other rejections look fine quality wise to me, but they do seem a bit high in the frame for the current screening standards (I’ve had a couple of rejections for the same). As a result I’ve started making an effor...Jump to post
Quality photography is all about good light. Open up a magazine, turn on the TV, or walk through an airport. You’ll see some great photos (or video) all shot in great light. We have all seen spectacular shots in poor weather; But, is that what we are talking about? I don’t know how shooting somethin...Jump to post
the times of the 30D or the D70 my D100 and D70s were both 3000x2000 size images. And the images had quite a lot of noise. You couldn’t push/pull 6 stops like you can a modern DSLR (or the like). You couldn’t crop something heavily either. We also walked barefoot to the airport. And sometimes we go...Jump to post
Photos with bad lighting, bad weather, poor angle/composition, distracting objects, etc. have been accepted whereas photos with perfect lighting, good angle/composition, clean backgrounds/surroundings have been rejected due to minor and often debatable editing issues (sharpness, contrast, color, et...Jump to post

The easiest thing to do is to start with the basics. I would take your rig and take some pictures of static subjects at different focal lengths and go from there. I would also check things like your focus point(s) and what your AF is set to. If you have another lens and or body you can swap things a...Jump to post
A few random comments. My previously rejected wide-angle shots have since been added, and I have had a couple others added since then. I will link them below. I am of the opinion that the current screening team is not familiar with wide-angle photography, the same as various people who have commente...Jump to post
Common doesn’t mean that an image won’t be accepted, it just means that the subject is well-documented and that only the highest quality shots will make it.
To me the UPS seems blurry around the reg number - possibly from the exhaust but it is noticeable.
Two more wide-angle rejections for "Vignetting."

So yeah, wide-angle images, at least those with a blue sky, are no longer welcome at airliners.net
I don't think the Priority Guidelines are followed at times, for instance shots of a Delta A350 at PDX added today, yet there is nothing in the guidelines that says such a frame would be considered newsworthy (the plane was doing a Troop Charter).
It is what it is.
Here are 3 of 4 SA A332's at MZJ. The 4th is parked in a different grouping. I took this image two days ago.

Of course, just not sure on how to link it. Let me try this:

Just a heads-up, I had a wide-angle image rejected for “inverse vignetting” and “distortion.” Anyone who has ever used a wide-angle lens on a perfect blue sky will know that a uniform sky color is impossible, given a wide enough field of view. The appeal was rejected within minutes (“Screener reject...Jump to post
The 757 is not in production anymore. The tooling has been destroyed.
And he apparently thinks people will just buy that they are legitimate when they clearly are not. Dude, you stalk people and create Instagram accounts just to harass people that work @ PDX, and you want to call me out. Seriously, do you want to go there? You should ask your friends to get this thre...Jump to post
I was not aware that Sports Charters were eligible for Priority Screening, thank you for sharing that. With regards to the B-52, all I see is a small sticker, as you mentioned mil jets change all the time, I did not think such a change was eligible (still don't). But, all is not lost. I see your use...Jump to post
I inquired about this in private, but was told that the screeners rely on information from the uploader; so I am creating this thread. At what point is an aircraft a priority upload? Certainly not a USAF B-52 arriving at a USAF base that does heavy maintenance. Are we at the point where, if an airli...Jump to post
Given the difference in price, and the huge jump is resolution (and file size) I would buy a D750 over a D850. Spend the rest on good glass. XQD cards are also expensive and difficult to find for sale, in a pinch. The 5D mk IV is D750 performance at D850 pricesJump to post
I would take the camera/lens combo and mount it on a tripod (if you have one) and shoot a 3D object, like a chain link fence coming towards you or going away, with the VR off and check the results. You can also use a flat surface like a brick wall, but I think adding some depth will show you if any ...Jump to post
Classic. Attack the messenger and ignore the real issue.
If the photos were screened correctly, and more importantly, consistently, this would be a non issue. Thus, my original question.
Also, important to keep in mind, the content creators are volunteers too.
Kas - Thank you for taking the time to reply. It does not go unnoticed that you (and Jehan) are the only active screeners in the forums. It is a sad state that the screeners who are entrusted with maintaining the standards are unable, or unwilling, to follow the guidelines needed to have an image ac...Jump to post
What Kas is trying to say is that there are a few losers who constantly vote my photos, to make me look bad. It is ridiculous that so many standard shots of mine make PC. If there was a way to make my shots ineligible I would be all for it. Hopefully Paul can work with the Devs to see who is doing t...Jump to post
I think you can see the actual results. Some photogs (and screeners) upload actual garbage that gets accepted. The average shooter, lets use me as an example; I would never have such images accepted (I would also never even upload such shots, but that is a different story). I personally see rejectio...Jump to post
Just to clarify, the aircraft involved wasn't a Cessna Citation 560, but a Cessna Citation Excel (N91GY - 2003 build).
Glad everyone made it out safely.

No mystery. Soft and Oversharp often go hand in hand. The rejected image also looks blurry and the contrast is way off; take a look at the main landing gear, its just a black blob, no shadow detail at all. Easiest thing to do is look at previously accepted images of the subject in question and go fr...Jump to post
