You can always appeal the decision and cite the other accepted shot. I think you make a fair point since in a night time image such as this, the emphasis is on the city at night more than more than the visible part of the aircraft.
over-corrected vignetting can lead to reverse vignetting. as far as the photographers being driven away, I think that ship has mostly sailed. While not a widely used term, reverse vignetting is where the corners are lighter (vs darker). This is typically the result of over applying correction for v...Jump to post
Hello Firemun, CW rotation means the horizontal and vertical reference points in the image are askew and need clockwise rotation. Usually aligning a distant horizontal reference such as a horizon, background runway edge, or a building roof line corrects the issue. Alternatively, vertical references ...Jump to post
Hello Paul, At the outset, sincere apologies for this incident. After an internal review, it has been confirmed that the message was intended for internal sharing, but was inadvertently shared with you. As you may expect, screeners do share feedback on images and photographers internally, and with t...Jump to post
The Exif data shows f/11 and 1/200th of a second. You should consider a larger aperture (f/5.6 etc) and use a faster shutter speed to avoid camera shake/motion blur. Lighting is OK for the time of day. I am familiar with the angle of light from this location (parking garage?) at CVG. Perhaps some sl...Jump to post
Jehan, I really appreciate you chiming in with your view. However, I just have to disagree with the shot being blurry. Looking at the original TIF file (had to share it as a JPEG since Imgur apparently doesn't let you upload whatever size you want anymore), I see no evidence of that. I even made th...Jump to post
Moose, Even to be consistent is unrealistic, IMO unless we adopt robo-screening. As humans there will be variability...that's what defines us as humans. So let me rephrase: If you know of aviation photography site where the screening process has better consistency compared to a.net, do please share....Jump to post
Somehow how I sense the expectation that the screening process needs to be perfect, each time, all the time. That is not realistic. As humans, we see, and perceive images differently as exemplified by the comments on this very post. Candidly speaking, if you know of a site similar to this where the ...Jump to post
Hi Evan, I did the initial screening of your UPS MD-11 and unfortunately could not see accepting it as uploaded. The nose area, including the main title is oversharpened. Based on the overall appearance, it looks characteristic of too much sharpening applied to compensate for blur. While a soft imag...Jump to post
Sorry about that Karl. I screened that image yesterday and meant to add a banner, but never did. I just added it, and the banner should appear soon.
In the future, an email to the screeners can easily take care of it since it may be longer before a screener checks in on the forum.
Even if you disagree with the "Backlit" descriptor in the comment from the screener, all of the reasons listed are valid. I agree that it is does not fit the description of being backlit. But for me, all of the other reasons indicate a No-Go for me. To answer your question above, No it is ...Jump to post
I agree with Karl. The flock of birds looks random and not a strong enough motive for me. The image also looks over-sharpened to me; jaggies are visible on the titles, leading and trailing edges of the wings, leading edge of the tail, and nose gear and port side engine.
On 2 side notes, should I label the Trans-Canada as a classic airliner? Also, would it be best to label the PC-12 as "Planesense" or "Untitled"? I have gotten Planesense aircraft accepted with both labels. Thanks! My apologies for not answering the above questions... Yes, mark t...Jump to post
Hi there Brady, My thoughts: 6041941: Will get rejected for Motive due to the cover; aircraft with covers are only accepted if it is the first submission. There is already an image of the aircraft (also covered) from 2014. 6041949: Has a red/yellow color cast. I'd recommend correcting it. 6041947: L...Jump to post
Brady, Do you mean resubmit a better version to a.net, or the other site? If the former, it is not necessary, unless you really want to. Just use the reupload function. If the latter, I can’t speak for the acceptance criteria of the other site. For me at a.net, it’s well within acceptable standards....Jump to post
Hi Rainer, I was one of those that looked at your Appeal. I cannot explain the second rejection for color, quality and heat haze. Since I did not see any of those flaws, I sent it for a second opinion to another Head Screener with the comment that the only issue that I saw was that it was oversharpe...Jump to post

Re the A320, since it was marked as low contrast, I would fix that and reupload as opposed to appealing. In the future, please list all reasons for rejection otherwise it is hard to make recommendations on weather to appeal or edit and resubmit.
For the silhouette, you can check Creative Screening.

The issue of the dark band of sky with the use of wide angled lenses is under presently under review and discussion by the Head Screening team. Royal, regardless of the dark band at the top of the frame, your image was also rejected for having a soft nose area. Additionally, while not called out, th...Jump to post
Hello Josh, When screening, we look at a thumbnail version of the images as well as the full sized image. Centering issues are seen rather well on the thumbnails. Looking at the thumbnails in your thread, the RAM B737 appears to be low in frame. The DL 757 looks technically OK to me. But at first gl...Jump to post
The aircraft looks a bit High in the Frame. However, for me it is acceptable. When you're uploading it, I would add a comment to the screeners that you have centered the based on top of the aircraft and the bottom of the sun just so they are aware of your motive for the slight HIF. Looks good and ac...Jump to post
Karl[/quote] The second example clearly need CCW rotation. There is noise in the image. so many issues but still accepted.

Silhouette shots such as these are accepted subject to meeting the other guidelines such as distance, sharpening noise, centering, etc. Non-centered aircraft may be accepted if there is sufficient motive. e.g. to accommodate an aerial/celestial, or land feature. Here's a non centered shot of mine wi...Jump to post
I use the same lenses and color balance has never been an issue. Seems odd that a lens would cause that shift as typically it is based on the WB setting in the camera. Have you tried the 70-200 on a different body? If it happens on a different body, then it points to a lens optics issue which may re...Jump to post
I am concerned about the ratio, already sitting at 50%. Does it affect future uploads?
