777-9 has taken the runway for the first time. Airliners.net has rejected my uploads so, here you go:

I guess the opinions are as varied as they get. Nothing wrong with that, it just highlights the challenges in getting an image accepted here. With regards to my own shots, I do agree the 767 was slightly HIF (which is why I did not appeal). However, given that it was a new frame, and the amount of s...Jump to post
Lately I've been the recipient of some harsh centering rejections, its just the standard of lack of consistency argument that's always existed: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/9/8/7/5480789.jpg?v=v45545ba19a5 https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/9/2/6/5565629.jpg?v=v4d0b020b...Jump to post
The flip-side to the argument that the hangar is leaning (it isn't) and the photo is level (it isn't) is that all the other shots from that location, correctly leveled using the building as a guide, are now "unlevel."
You don't get to have it both ways.
As someone who has had several level rejections lately I am trying to understand how the current screening team decides if an image is level or not. I came across this image: 5539531 The runway is clearly "level," but obviously the background is not. Given that the image is from a screener...Jump to post
Obvious error on the part of the screener(s).
I would address the other rejection reasons and reupload.

The good news is that the holes were recently damaged, and subsequently closed. There was a lot of outrage and the airport admin office reopened the holes. Everyone owes Bruce Drum (former KMIA director now runs worldairlinenews.com) for getting the holes set-up way back when. Thanks Bruce :airplane...Jump to post
I've just received the following rejection for unlevel (needs CCW) with the same result when I appealed to the HS: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/9/4/3/5538349.jpg?v=v4e2dff7e525 I've used the water tank as a reference, and it looks level to me. Any idea how much rotation to make thi...Jump to post
No chance a 1510 will fit under a seat. When they say "carry-on" they mean in the overhead (unless you're on a CRJ). If you want to ensure overhead space I'd either look for an upgrade or explain your situation to the gate agent(s) and let them know checking it isn't an option. Ask if you ...Jump to post
If it’s that important buy early bird - it will check you in at +36 hours.Jump to post
Good point - it’s something I learned 20+ years ago and have stuck with it.
I think most people would rather have a slightly underexposed shot to work with, vs overexposed. With the ISO capability of OP’s camera noise won’t be an issue.
But again, to each their own.
If you shoot center-weight on a white plane, with a dark background, the background will be underexposed.
My use of -1/3 of a stop has nothing to do with my cameras metering, if you reread what I typed above I shoot in manual 100% of the time.
But, whatever works for you, great.
Easy - don't overexpose. It is easier to lift the shadows vs restoring clipped highlights. In film we called it push vs pull. Once you shoot for a while you can meter pretty quickly from general knowledge - there are also stand alone handheld meters you can use. There are also some phone apps but th...Jump to post
I'd learn how to do it manually and take control of the metering and the "film speed" (aka ISO). Always try to expose for the highlights because once they're gone they're gone*
*not as true as it used to be if you shoot in RAW formats, but the goal still applies.
Sounds like the camera thinks you've attached an external flash and is limiting the shutter to the flash synch speed (which is 1/250s on a D500). But, if you are in manual you should be able to override it. When you say "manual" do you mean manual focus or manual settings (shutter speed an...Jump to post
I emailed the site manager several days ago asking him to look into this (not the first time I asked). He choose not to respond. It should be pretty easy to see which user account(s) are voting for what photos. I see another one of my photos has made PC again. It is a shame that someone is selfish e...Jump to post
Unfortunately June is about the worst month to visit South Florida - lots of rain, very high humidity, and a sun that is directly overhead most of the day. You can see a few older planes at Opa Locka (although there are some massive building projects taking place there and most of the old Russian pl...Jump to post
dutchspooter1 - what exactly is "poor" about my Skyvan shot? As mentioned above, I posted it on Reddit. Judging by the amount of likes and comments, it is a popular photo. Surprising, for sure. But, it also didn't receive 750 photo views in a couple of hours (like the photo I questioned to...Jump to post
Thank you for everyone who has taken the time to read and/or reply to this thread. Karl, you are spot-on with your thoughts; thank you for sharing them.

In the prior thread I estimated it was over-served by 50 to 70 aircraft just as it is now under-served by 50 to 70 aircraft. Growth is fast in India, so another 8 to 14 additional aircraft are needed every month. So while over 50 additional aircraft will serve the market by end of summer (mostly Sp...Jump to post
Kas - Thank you for replying with an "official" position. Honestly - as a community nobody needs to be banned, or have their images removed. But, the front page traffic should be organic - promoting a shot that wouldn't make it on merit just denies the next photog that opportunity. It woul...Jump to post
Mark - I believe it is much more than "promoting" photos on sites like Reddit (which I believe has cracked down on this by the mods of certain forums). Personally I've plugged my own shots on Reddit and gotten 200/300 views in a day or so. I view photos on a.net everyday; I usually start a...Jump to post
If you can post an example of me uploading a photo and getting more than a couple hundred views in an hour, aside from something that’s being promoted as new, then please do. I do have a lot of pictures that make the front page - that’s a result of the barrier to making the front page is less than 2...Jump to post
An observation and a question. Last night two images of a new Scoot 787 (9V-OJI) were added, very close to each other. At the time of this post these images have views of 104 and 110. 5487731,5487749 Earlier this morning a third image was added (about 3 hours ago). That image now has over 700 "...Jump to post
Has there been a change in Priority Screening guidelines? The first image of ZS-ZCB (Comair 737 Max) was taken on the 9th and accepted on the 10th. Another image, also taken on the 9th, was accepted overnight (the 13th). My understanding is that there is a 24-hour window for new images to be accepte...Jump to post
What's up Justin? We had some crappy Dell 21" cheap_LCD from DM, they weren't very useful for screening. My personal experience with a wide-range of monitors is that the cheap ones show jaggies a lot easier, and color dithering. I use a BenQ 2700 I bought a couple of years ago. It's not the bri...Jump to post
The quality of the images being accepted are nowhere near what they were ten years ago, good or bad that's just how it is. While not nearly as bad as other places, I see a lot of images where I can't even believe the person was at the airport, much less taking pictures. Then I see comments like &quo...Jump to post
