-=REJECTED=- ..Boourns! +My P.O.View

Sat Sep 21, 2002 5:11 pm

Hello and Good day guys.
I normally avoid posting topics related to rejected photos such as this particular one. But lately I have been experiencing a lot of rejects; most which I honestly believe were acceptable.

I don't understand why I have to struggle THIS MUCH just to get a few pictures up here. I find it sad and a disgraceful waste of time to continuously go through this tedious process of uploading my photos in vain.
If I recall, some of you screeners recommended a large amount of time to scan and post process photos before uploading. But what if this large amount of time and skill used is all for nothing?

I must say that I am starting to get a little fed up with all this hardship I am going through. Its like I’m a Koulak being oppressed by Stallin and his collectivisim + purges. Except that uploading to a.net won't cause possible death without trial.

Anyways here are a few of my rejected pictures which I would like to share with you so I can read what your inputs are. The rejection reasons vary from quality, badcommon, baddouble, badblury, and badsmall.

1) https://airliners.net/procphotos/rejphoto.main?filename=JuneG80230.jpg

15) http://www.pbase.com/image/5008874
16) http://www.pbase.com/image/5008875

3 or 4 of the rejects in this pile may be quite agreeable but the rest I ask myself why I bothered to waste my time working on these in the first place.
For the amount of time I spent on these photos, I coulda done my Math and Chem homework! Gah!

To be honest: I am feeling a little frustrated about all this. Partly because I have been uploading photos to this site since the beginning of 1999, and I am STILL STRUGGLING to maintain a satisfactory acceptance rate. There are people who scan prints that have much higher acceptance rates than myself. Then there are the digital guys. At any given week; like a hundred picts are added per photographer yet contributing to the ever growing list of photos in this database. Like some sort of a Revolutionary Big Leap.
If I was desperate, I would buy myself a phat D60, S2, F707 etc..
Convert all these to CDN currency and I could buy myself a decent used car to drive to school. Then again my airport of YYC doesn’t get enough diversity of airline traffic to make a digicam suitable for myself. At times I don’t even use half a roll of film when I am out there spotting because of the 3400 hectares of blandness.

Another reason why I am frustrated is because its September. I assume that most of you regulars on the photo forums are aware that I am a student.
My life hangs in the balance of academic performance, skill and my individual well being.
With no spares and a full semester of Senior Gr12 Level Course Subjects PLUS: Senior Grade 9 level Piano, Work, AND Flight Training, How in the name of Humanity can I waste so much time just to get 1 or 2 measly pictures added/Rejected?
So far I have felt fortunate enough to allocate some time to at least have a few picts uploaded. I do get 1 or 2 photos added from time to time. So what? Uploading for nearly 4 years and the best I can do is get low single digit success?!
This website is truly an Aviation Politburo..

In the future, I may consider being increasingly reluctant to upload additional photos of airliners that I took.

Oddly, the good thing is that the pictures I take at my unpopular airport of YYC seem to be a favorite for hundreds of fellow local spotters and plane fans. I have also been somewhat recognized by a few airlines serving this city. Because of this, I have in a way reached new heights; I’ve gained things that I couldn’t gain before such as advanced information on special arrivals 1 week in advance. Such aspects is the fuel that helps me fight the troubles of rejection and it also continously tempts me to upload more and more picts of the material at my home airport. Its not because I want 100% acceptance rates as that is just about impossible as Everybody gets rejections from time to time. I only want Fair Game so I can continue to share my work with others and at the same time to keep the Calgary/Alberta section of this airliners.net database updated regularly with a display of interesting stuff aside from the regular AirCandas,and WestJets.

So If you’ve held your breath long enough to read all this, or at least read what I have typed:
You have a Lung Capacity of a big blue whale.. Or I would like to say thanks for putting in some of your time to address this issue I am facing with.

Bo

Hi Bo!
To pick out a few.

Plane is quite distant away but this might be ok in this case but the upper boundary between plane and sky plane looks very strange to me.

Bo - too many to go through in detail, but let me pick up on JuneG80109.jpg. There are already 60+ shots of this in the database, including a few by you! So what does this shot contribute. For a start it would need to be very high quality indeed, but if you study this shot, the shadows are looking very grainy ... look at the wheels. You don't get a good black where its required, just a muddy sort of dark grey, so this is a less than optimum scan.

But it does make me wonder - what are you seeing on your monitor? Has the calibration drifted (it can)?

Also, are you being selective enough? Myself, I would say maybe only around 5% of what I take actually makes its way to A.net - yes my acceptance rate is pretty high ... but I've gone through a very thorough screening process before I upload. My personal rejection rate is well over 50% from a given shoot. Of the remainder, the shots are matched against A.net, and only added if I think they make a contribution to the database as a whole.

Personally I find this much more rewarding than taking the scatter-gun approach (upload everything and let the screeners sort it) - I'm not saying you do this Bo, but I do notice a large variation in the quality of your pics ranging from excellent to so-so down to, I'm afraid, poor. Please don't take that as me saying you are a poor photographer ... you're not. We all shoot crap - the trick is to recognise the crap and keep it to yourself!

Cheers,

Colin

Dear Bo,

I had a look at your pictures, and you have already 18 pages on a.net!

So I agree with what is written above, you have already enough experience to know what is acceptable and what not. So I think you should have to know that a picture like this (https://airliners.net/procphotos/rejphoto.main?filename=JuneG80230.jpg) is far below the standard. So why upload it?

Look, in the beginning, I also uploaded crap (not that I don't have crap anymore now, a lot of my shots are still crap), but after some uploading experiences, you know what is acceptable and what not. You also have experience, I see that because you have already a lot of shots on this site. So why don't you just upload the shots of which you know that they can be acceptable? Since I do this, my percentage of acception is above 50-60%!

Regards,
Frederic

ok Bo:

For a start, the quality of scans on all of them isn't great, but I think some are still of acceptable quality... BUT, youve uploaded them at stupid sizes. You should be looking at 1024 for just about all of them, or if its really necassary, less.

There are some nice photos, and some nice compositions. I particularly like the 2 AF1's with the AC 737, the air transat A330 over the fence and the 2 heli's with the guy holding his ears.

Oh well!

I agree with Dan when I opened them they are largeish size.why? if you are having trouble with uploads put them at 1024 or 1000.

Again I agree with others..you know the standards here dont just upload every shot then complain.

I know where you are coming from but we learn from our mistakes...maybe this is a good mistake for you to learn from

That's you're problem. I've lurked and contributed to this site since the beginning, and I remember some KILLER shots from you about a year or so back. Sunsets, dramatic angles, etc. Nearly everything you've shown us above is standard angles in mediocre summer light (high sun). It looks like you're just uploading anything and everything now.

Don't let the flood of "nice shot!" emails deceive you. Getting email like doesn't mean you can start slacking off and think that you've made it to the top. You have to keep pushing. And most importantly:

SHOOT FOR YOURSELF! If a rare aircraft comes in at 1pm in the middle of July, chances are it's going to be a bland shot - don't think that you just HAVE to get it on a.net. Take your best shot, and if it really is a poorly lit image, leave it out. Sure there may be a handful of people you know that would be interested in seeing it at your airport, but the truth is that most everybody else in this world couldn't give a flying f*ck if you got a picture of it or not. A viewer like me from the US would just see it as a bland / poorly lit shot from Bo, wondering why the hell you aren't uploading dramatic shots anymore. I'm not trying to be harsh...I'm just being realistic (you asked for honest opinions).

Good luck dude...

How many LARGE pictures that are accepted onto the site do you look at each day? Not yours, other peoples? How many?

The biggest mistake many people make, in my opinion, is that they process their own pics, reach a level that they're personally satisfied with, and then upload. Very little comparison of the standards of a photographers personal work to the other stuff that gets accepted here takes place.

Everyone who's uploading here should compare their output to the stuff that is getting accepted. And I don't mean compare it to so mega-rare airliner from years ago that in all probability has been accepted simply because its rare. Everyone should be comparing what they produce with the COMMON subjects that make it onto the database. Everyone who contributes regularly should be looking at large pictures that appear on the site every day, just to see if they're producing results that are in the same ball park.

We screeners view hundreds of large pictures every week. I'm not saying I'm the best by any stretch of the imagination, but when assessing my own output I have a good idea what will make it and what won't simply because I've seen so much other stuff recently. There's pictures I've had on this site for a year or more that there is no way on earth I'd upload today, simply because I know that what I got away with a year ago I would not get away with now. Standards move on.

Bo,

I'll be honest with you. Most of your recent stuff is border-line - you are a difficult photographer to screen. They're not easy to accept, and not easy to reject. Its often very easy to see that your pictures aren't quite there, whilst at the same time its difficult to pin down exactly what's wrong with them. Whilst you may read this as bad news, it isn't. It means that you've only got to raise your game just a little bit to be in the "majority-accepted" bracket. I'm not going to start offering suggestions here, because I don't know what film and scanner you're using, but you're not far off. The only pic of yours I did screen recently was the Air Canada A319 in special colours, and to be quite honest it had been HQ'd once and I questioned it - Colin is right on the money on that one in that the greys and blacks lack the density of a good scan, especially as the subject is common. Of the rest of the pictures you've provided links to, I'd have taken the Westjet. The rest... well, a little tweak here and there will probably fix many of them.

Guys,

Thanks for your words. Now I understand there is alot of of steamy criticism floating around here directed at me but that is ok. As long as these criticisms are meaningful, they're worthy of reading.

For the Il-96 photo that Peter and Frederic (Sabena690) mentioned.
Okay, I guess it may not not have been under the acceptable conditions. But I wanted to upload it anyways because I thought particular factors in this photo could have made it an exception. Reasons why? First of all its a Russian airliner, you dont see this kind of plane in these parts of the world. Calgary has been extremely fortuneate to get such traffic for just that period of time.
I'm assuming most of you guys know what the G8 summit is?
That leads to another reason, It was a VIP plane carrying the Russian president Putin. Not to mention I shot this in the morning so the weather was clear, and downtown skyline and the Rockies were haze free and crisp considering the fact that I dont spot in the mornings due to tumbleweed traffic.

Peter: Because its a Government owned VIP plane, all that awkward stuff on the top fuselage are sophisicated communications equipment modifyed on that particular 96. Its just like Airforce One.

Overexposed shots: To be honest with you they do infact look perfectly fine to me. The doors as what Peter had mentioned are clearly visible.
As for the noise and grain under that AirCanada special plane. I honestly don't see any once so ever.
The reason being is because there is a complicated issue with my monitor. Its settings are at the fullest level of brightness and contrast. Although my pictures look fine on my monitor, on others it doesnt. Its usually too bright leading to excessive noise in the darker parts of the airplane. I used the Calibration tool from this site, but that did no help. At the end the conclusion was that my monitor was just simply too dark. Even though my settings as I reiterate are at its highest level of Brightness and Contrast settings, it was not enough to fit what the calibration was requiring. I tried to fix this brightness issue by drastically darkening the rejected photo. Now on my monitor because the photos are much dark they seem to look like crap and definetly not worthy of acceptance, but I uploaded it anyways to see what happens. Acceptance within a day. I'm speechless! 0n my monitor as I look at this photo, its dark and ugly. But I guess to many others, its brightness is properly fixed hiding the noise and such.
A few weeks back, an a.net screener came for a visit to my city and stayed at my place. I showed him my monitor and addressed the whole brightness/grain issue.

Now the selective part. Colin: I do pre screen my own photos before I upload.
The ones I upload are the ones which I think are the best out of the bunch.
Unfortunetly it seems that screeners filter out what I consider the best ones and that results with very low acceptance/rejection ratio.
Over the summer since school ended in late June I shot over 600 photos of airliners. Out of that I photoshopped ALL of them and chose the best 100 or so that I would like to upload. 1/6=16.7%
These include the many shots of AF1, and all the other VIP planes and rarities that I have seen for the first time in my life. It also adds to the regular stuff I have shot over the summer as well. I had hoped to acheive this goal by the time school began but I have managed only 10% of these uploaded.
Overall I believe my aim of 16.7% was selective enough to upload Colin.

As for size like what Dan and Ben mentioned: I like uploading at 1200x resolution because you get the bigger picture showing more details and definition. Its almost like sending a picture to a buisness company who wants to buy it as normally they ask for large resolutions. I am just trying to follow that. I also have a 19inch monitor at 1280x1024 resolution making it another reason why I prefer 1200x*** uploads.

Lately I have been thinking about downsizing so I can get faster upload times. I have now decided on shrinking back a bit. Perhaps upload at 1100x*** res from now on to make it more easier for you guys. Okay, one rejection was added earlier today.

Mr. Martin:Maintaining a high quality standard for my photo uploads is quite difficult to achieve.
Mainly because I still shoot prints and only prints.
I scan with an 'would be' outdated S20 scanner which can only give so much.
Unfortunetly, it seems that Prints are the lowest level of quality, with slides being the norm and digital being the elite.
A year back I remember uploading those awesome shots Scooter. Your word use of sunset and dramatic angles instantly puts 2 of my pictures in my head that fits that description. Those pictures too were rejected about 5-6 times before finally being added a few months later. I just put those aside for a while to come back later and fortunetly it worked out good.
Guys, I still enjoy shooting planes, and will keep it up despite my busy schedule.
Still there is magic left in me in which that I could pull off more of those sunset/unique angle shots. Just wait and see, winters around the corner.

Bo,

As I said before, I don't think you're that far away from a fairly high success rate. It sounds to me, based on what you've said, like your monitor is knackered - all monitors should be capable of displaying the airliners.net calibration properly if they're working properly. There's a monitor in the office where I work that has the same problem, and a lot of what appears on airliners.net looks horrible as a result. I think you're probably ramping up the brightness too much to compensate for your monitor problem, and a direct side effect of this will be that noise that appears on some of your images in the areas that should be solid dark.

I'm not sure you'll like this suggestion, but I think you need to get a new monitor.

BO, try to increase the quality of the images, just a bit to low for a.net.

I also got some photos rejected lately that are totally acceptible, I just compare with other photogrpahers, and say mine aren't any worse.

Dmitry,
Don't you figure that if your photo rejects are totally acceptable, that they'd be added to the database? On your other post about your rejections, there was heaps of advise given to you that you just don't seem to listen to, well here is my bit of advice, don't think that just because you have some awesome gear, that you will be able to shoot incredible shots, you need experience my friend. But remember, every time you go out to the airport, you gain experience, and I'd say listening to the people on here who have been shooting for years and years, is only going to add to your photography skills.

Dmitry,
No offence meant. Your own shots are always as good as some other person's shots. No self-respecting person would say 'Damn My shots are not as good as xxxx', everybody has an illusion that their shots are spectacular. Since other people have commented on your shots, perhaps just heeding their advice would good?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

well here is my bit of advice, don't think that just because you have some awesome gear, that you will be able to shoot incredible shots, you need experience my friend

As what Jeremy has said, you dont need superb equipment to get great shots. I'm using the cheapest bottom-most end Nikon and a cheap lens, but I still get relatively acceptable shots. Your equipment is way better than what I have (and had), so may I humbly suggest you have a look at your own shots, compare it with other good names, and please objectively see where you could have improved. The suggestions given by experienced members here are invaluable to improvement.

Thanks

Hey Jermey and Tsentsan.

I don't know where you are getting the idea that I don't listen to anyone, if I didn't listen to the pros here, I probably wouldn't have a single shot on the db to this day. I listened to a lot of different people, and thats why I bought the gear I have.

And, I do understand that I gain experience every time I go to the airport. ON that other thread I had, well I just wanted an opinion from some guys, I appealed only those photos I thought were the best out of all the rejects.

So thanks for the advise there, and I am always ready for critisicm. BTW, I started out with the 70-300 f4/5.6 and I did get about half and half results, but that was when I totally new to this (I still am), but I think I can do better now, but still in the learning mode.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Also, I am taking photography classes at the local university, so I am starting to understand my camera.

Thanks for the words of advise, always glad to receive it, no matter from who its coming.

Bo,

As a screener and a friend, I'm not quite sure why you're STILL uploading shots at 1200x1000 or whatever. 1024 Bo, 1024... keep that one engraved on your forehead. I've told you how many times now??? And yes, in general, shots taken through a fence where fence is clearly visible on the heli shots with your 28mm, do NOT bode well, punkt.

Actually I enjoy your shots quite abit  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Its not everyday I get to see stuff from Anchorage yah... Just remember to aviation photography is about getting the planes for yourself. Do not always think "airliners.net wont like this", thats not the point of the hobby issit?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Jeremy -
:D I just hope I'm not being too rude.

Apoligies for this late reply as I was clogged with Homework and Work.

Sometimes my monitor can act like a wreck. Recently I have tinkered with the display settings to give more proper look of the brightness/contrast so my pictures wont look so dark on my display.

As for the resolution, I have decided to stop uploading at 1200X.. I am going to think about 1024x but for now I have decided to give it a shot by uploading my future uploads at 1100x. I will try this for the next 10-20 pictures and see how it goes. If things aren't to my likings then I will downsize to the popular 1024x.

Thanks for the compliments Jeremy. Unfortunetly, I wish YYC was like YYZ because its pratically dead here now! But wait, ZIp is here so that might get me going again.  Smile
Some time ago I read about you getting a Minolta Dimage 2, how is that scanner treating ya? I have an HP S20 scanner and usually it is pretty good. Sometimes it produces colored dash lines in my scans making them look like crap so I have to scan again to rid of it. Also keep a lookout for a particular Air Canada A320... Word has it that its going to be painted in a way to represent out national pride.

Dimitry: I started my photography sometime in 1997. The SLR camera I used then, I still use now. It is a Older Nikon Model. (1980) EM series as what it says. The lens I use are 28mm f2.8, and my 60-300mm F3.8-5.6. My scanner of course the S20 as said in last paragraph. I also use a nice nifty 3' step ladder to get the best views. Of coruse security at times wil drive up to me and start blah blah blahs and blah blah blahs..
I think your ANC action materials are superb, especially all those 747F shots like that one particular CX and a UPS. oo lala, I want to see 747s at this airport.
Sadly 4 engine planes are non existent here at YYC.

What do you mean 4 holers are non-existent here Bo? For shame, we still see some A340's in almost daily. And I have occasionally seen a UPS DC-8 come in. Not to mention we still get the RAF L1011 pretty regularly plus the VC-10 a lot as well.

But I would hope to see some pics of the Zip a/c up soon, now I have seen all 4 colors here in Calgary, although the Pink and Orange are the most common two. And also you gotta grab that new A320 with the Canadian flag, that will be sweet.

Don't get discouraged man, just keep clicking. And start flying again! School be damned!

Damn, my shot of the green zip is slightly blurry. Some asshole trucker at Air Canada Cargo nearly ran over my car, then was screaming at me and honking while i was trying to get the shot. Guess I have to wait until next week to see how the shots on the other roll turned out...

Bo about security. I haven't been hasseled on the hill at all lately with my ladder. Maybe it's just yoou being right up against the fence in your bright hawaiian shirt.... Smile

Loving the new camera though...what's this autofocus stuff?

Hehe Jan, at times these guys speak with Exclamation marks at the end of each of their sentences.

Mark and Aaron.  Smile Maybe I am just going through a spell of back luck!
I have not seen any 4 holers in a while. Well Cargolux doesnt really count. Blah I shoulda been there that one day it came in daylight.
For the UPS Dc8, I too have also seen it once in July, I know that sometimes they use those in par with their 757s and A300s, Im surprised sometimes they use the 727-100s with the nice QF style third engine. A hump engine.
I shot that using Kodachrome 25 slide film. Unfortunetly It is probably lost somewhere in New York as I am waiting like forever. I sent it once in August and then got it back undeveloped, I sent it again in the beginning of this month and so far nothin.

Anyways, yeah for my flying I am hoping that starting October I can allocate my spotting time to do some flying time.
Unfortunetly, I have only seen the pink zip. Yeah yeah yeah, its me I should of seen all 4 colors by now. I will keep a lookout for the special A320.

hehe Mark, damm trucker people. No respect for the spotters eh. Big grin
Lets see some of your shots with ur new SLR.
Did you guys see or hear about 4 Miami Air's coming in town during the last week?

I haven't been out in nice weather with it yet. It's always been cold and cloudy. One day I plan to head out after football, so get there at 7pm or something like that. Saturday I've got a horrible shift from 1-10 and sunday will probably be 8-5.

I've gotta get around to scanning them soon.
