Quoting Sjmurphy (Reply 148):

What kind of camera do you use? My guess is a point&shoot and it seems to limit the outcome pretty much. All pictures have serious quality issues, particularly with grain and over exposure.
1st is very grainy, blurry and unlevel.
2nd is overexposed with blown whites, very soft and needs a closer crop
3rd looks weird, colours, grainy, over exposed (you can hardly read legacy in the whites) and very soft

And the rejected one was correctly rejected I'm afraid. It's blurry, grainy, unlevel (or someone has hit that light post), contrast etc. It seems it was a cloudy day in this pic and your camera is not up to the task.

If you have a DSLR you need to read the manual, and read in on the internet on issues like shutter times, exposures and ISO settings. Also, check images in this database to see what is accepted and not, and it's also a good idea to look through the Post Screening thread where we discuss rejections, and you can see some photos that appear to be great quality but for one reason or other was rejected.

I'd pass. The light pole kills the shot. It would be different perhaps if it wasn't smack dab in the center of the shot.

Quality is also an issue.
The shot is blurry.

Looks like it could still use a bit of CW rotation, but quality is still an issue. What program are you using to edit?

Welcome to Airliners.net, I noticed you are new here. Unfortunately none of these shots are worthy. Take a look at the photo database once in a while. You'll get a better idea of what is required to get a shot in the database here. These examples you are providing us show that you don't "get" the standards for photo acceptance here. It took me a while to "get it" too as I'm sure was the case for countless others here. Sometimes the truth hurts.

I'd suggest you read the IGRR top-to-bottom and compare their examples to your shots. Shooting in good weather helps too.

What kind of equipment are you using?

Good luck.

First of all your images are too small to judge. What I can see though is that they are to far in the distance ie too much space around the aircraft and they seem to be a bit over exposed. If you crop closer and upload at 1024 pixels wide we'll give you proper feedback.

No offense was taken.

Your Dreamlifter shots for example. They're all way too small. The minimum size for photos here is 1000 pixels-wide. They're also unlevel. The subject is also uncentered. Your second batch, quality wise, shows promise. However generally photos accepted here are one of two size ratios: 3-by-4 or 3-by-2.

My point is there are many resources to help you, including the IGRR I posted above as well as the information on the upload page, https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/. Again, look at the photos in the database to get an idea of what is acceptable.

As with Sjmurphy, until you meet the basic rudimentary requirements there isn't much else I can offer you in terms of advice.

I think the motive would work very well, but the exposure (or lack thereof) hurts the shot. This may have been an interesting shot to do an HDR merge on. Maybe for next time?

Here are a couple I have in the queue that I'm unsure about. I'm in one of those phases where I haven't spotted in a long time and am aching to upload more shots.

All the images (in both posts) are way too blurry, and many have quality issues. They are also the wrong size. You must be between 3:2 and 4:3 aspect ratios (for an image at 1024 pixels across, like yours are, the height must be between 683 and 768 pixels.

Antix87, love the lot, only things I have is that the whites on Air India are borderline, but it is a very white livery, other than that it's a great shot. BA has some jaggies in the tail logo and the border between blue and white on the fuselage as well. L'avion gould possibly use very little USM, not sure about it thogh, it's a fine shot IMO. NWA, nothing to say from my side.

Quoting Jetplaner (Reply 174):

Jetliner, you really need to take a look at the images in the database to see what is required. I'm afraid that those are nowhere near the quality this site requests.
Keep taking pics and you will get better, but at this time they will be rejected.

Appreciate a comment on this one. I haven't uploaded previously because the sun was at an awful angle and the photo took a lot of "lightening". I also felt it was too low in the frame but after seeing some recent uploads figured maybe I am being too hard on myself.

Are you doing ANY post-processing on these shots? Theres's a bit more to it than just taking the photo.

In other words, no, they won't get accepted. Given the amount of severe compression on all three (assuming these are originals straight off the memory card), it is highly unlikely that they are salvageable.

Please look at other images in the galleries before asking about images like this. Your pictures, as FlyNavy said, are very compressed. In addition, the colors and contrast look completely fake.

What camera are you using? Do you have any certain settings on that should not be? Your camera should be doing absolutely ZERO processing on the images it takes (no in-camera sharpening, no special color settings or saturation compensation, etc). What the camera sees should be exactly what you start with on your computer when you go to edit.

Really? It's that tough to scroll up and read the replies to your posts?

All your shots have had questionable quality and post-processing leaves a lot to be desired. Your camera should be ok, in theory, but your software (the Corel Paint Shop) will never be good enough. You need something more inclusive like Photoshop.

As of right now, your photos just won't be good enough. Compare what you've done with the recently accepted shots in the database. Can you honestly say you feel your images are of the same quality??

I have a look at Photoshop will redone photo's from my originals again

Fine and dandy, but Photoshop won't cure your photos.

Part of the game we play here is knowing when to give up on a shot you royally screw up. I've taken many shots only find out later I screwed up a camera setting. You can polish a turd all day long, but in the end, it's still a turd. You have to know when to let go.

Your shots are not Airliners material (yet). Period.

I know, I'm such a meanie. But good luck nonetheless.

I don't think he said that. What he meant is that you obviously need to devote more time to the entire process. It seems to me that you're in a hurry (maybe desperate?) to get a photo accepted here. Don't make the same mistake a lot of first timers do. Without proper pre-screening, you'll end up with a bunch of rejected photos, a hurt morale and overall frustration. What Chris has stated here is true, and the sooner you accept it, the easier it will be for you to improve.

For what its worth, let me add to what everyone's already said. Understand your camera thoroughly, and understand what is required to get a photo accepted here. Then spend some time with learning the basics of Photoshop, and then have a go at editing your photos. In the meantime, if getting your photos onto a database is what matters to you, then on the side, you can always upload to myaviation.net.

I wouldnt upload either, unless you want rejections.

The quality is just not there, plus its grainy, unlevel, etc etc.

Also another way to have better quality is to reduce the size of the picture to as much as you can for this site, 1024x683.

I suck at my own editing, but i tried my hand at your photo:

Seriously Stephen, listen to what we are telling you, and not only us. You are doing the same thing over at "the other side" as well, and you don't seem to take their advice either. Check the photo's in the database, you can't seriously think that all those photos you have posted are anywhere near the quality of those? Learn to use your camera! Learn how to edit photos, and learn to filter out what's even worth to try to process. Read the rejection reasons and for Gods sake, read the IGRR by ThierryD.

We have told you before how to crop, yet you post a pic with plenty of unnecessary space around it.

Malaysian, your best effort so far and a gorgeous plane, but quality is not good enough.

Input on this Il-62 would be appreciated. It seems dark but it's real conditions. What do you think?

No, neither should be uploaded, and it's BECAUSE you used the same settings.

I edited the Cypria image, since Deaphen edited the other. Here is my attempt:
Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 683 File size: 653kb


Even with Photoshop, this image was very, very difficult to save. If I had had the original, it may have been better, but the point is, look at the differences between yours and mine.

Mine is cropped much closer, to show only the aircraft. I reduced a lot of the grain in the image, so it looks cleaner. I sharpened the image to make it crisper.

Now, even with ALL the things I did, it STILL WOULD NOT BE ACCEPTED. It still has some soft spots, there is still quite a bit of grain, and the general quality is not good.

Here is the advice we've all given you, put into ONE PARAGRAPH.

Stop posting imaged you have already taken. We've established beyond ANY doubt that they are not good enough. Go out to your airport, and start all over. Learn how to use your camera to its full potential, play around with settings, and do not use Digital Zoom (which it looks like you did on the Malaysia shot). Only shoot on sunny days until you learn how to compose and edit shots. When you have a shot that you think is of the same quality as those on this website, then come back and ask if it's any good. And remember, you have to be patient. Your first good shot might come once we're using Pre-Screening thread number 16, but believe me, once you get to that point, you'll be happy you waited because you won't be discouraged by an entire string of rejections. Again, stop posting images you've already taken in the past.

Sorry to be so harsh, but you seem to refuse to want to listen to us. If you come for advice, you must be ready to accept criticism as well.
