Re: Have quality standards changed on here recently?

I found two good examples here of what everyone is disgruntled over I think. Why would you even upload or accept such a backlit version of this shot? Can the helicopter not fly up-sun of the subject? 6653259 6654289 I like to think of it this way: A backlit, side on, shot from the ground, photo of ...

Re: Inconsistent screening

By any generally accepted standards this is an average at best photo. The front of the aircraft is nearly cut off in the frame. But this is acceptable...? Ok Anet prefers tight crops. Is there a published guide somewhere about other foundational photography concepts that we can ignore when shooting...

Hi Terry,

Re: Prescreening Advice

GLEX: Probably acceptable as is, however the crop look weird imo. Personally I would crop it right up to the engine on the left side of the image. IT also could do with a slight hit of ccw roation.

VH-VPF: Definitely high in frame. otherwise it looks ok.

Hello,

The photo needs CW rotation, more contrast, a slight bump in exposure, as well as using less noise reduction, the entire image looks very pastey as there is too much noise reduction.
Might be fixable.

All 3 lack contrast and are soft. Might be ok at 1200px wide.
Also very compressed, but that could be something to do with the place you uploaded the photos.

Technically allowed yes, but it will usually draw a rejection as its not super pleasing to look at. It depends on the screener and the rarity of a photo.


Latest Edit: Overall the crop is better but still blurry for me.
