Alright ya'll, it's been a while and I've got a few. Any advice is appreciated - I've been out of the game for about a year and am a bit rusty. *(posted in last thread, which was just closed)*

#1. Rejected for grainy & soft. Can she be saved with some sharpening, or is the grain also an issue?
https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20090102_N14938wjmossAMA.jpg


#2. Rejected for quality & soft. Again, will some sharpening fix this or should I can it?

#3. Motive & Overexposed. I went way out on the limb with this one - I s'pose there's nothing to do for it, eh?

Hello! I just had my first photo rejected as well. I'm not upset, a little bummed, of course I'd like it to be accepted, but was also looking forward to it being rejected to see how the process works and what they would say about it. However, I would like to see how they rejected it using these reasons: "image quality" and "focus" Now it was shot with a Nikon D300, iso 200, with 70-300VR. And it looks pretty in focus to me. Used unsharp mask at 100% and all!

I'm not sure what the focus issue is on that picture. How many times did you run some sharpening on the image. If just once, I'd bet your going to need some more.

And, yet I've got a question for you. How are you shooting over the fence down there on the north end of the airport? You using a ladder or a tall truck/SUV. I know its Sarasota, and I know where your at, just don't know how your pulling that off.

I've been up there a few times in the last week, but haven't really got many quality shots.

I think your image suffers some heat haze.
Don't think you can solve this.

Diamondflyer: my dad is a pilot and we know the guys who run/own Dolphin and so we go out on the ramp and hang around there and I shoot from the ramp!

Daniel: I dont see much of the heat haze! I see the exhaust but not where the haze is making it "OOF" on the fuselage or anything...I have a few different shots of the same plane on its run so I'll see if I can do something with those.

Thanks!

O, ok. I thought that was a funny angle to get where they rotate from the north spotting area. Nice shot, but I also noticed that you cut off the winglet on the left side of the picture. Lots of times, I believe that is a no-no

Hmm, I was worried about cutting off the left wing ever so slightly. I've seen lots of pictures that are framed a little tighter and cut off more than I did...

With common added as the escape clause! I can't see anything wrong with this, the blues look blue, the reds look red, etc. I know I'm using a different screen - but come on. I checked on another screen as well   I'm damned hopeless at this!

I'm thinking of appealing this one.

there´s a slight colourcast (something greenish/yellowish) for me.

PS: Did a quick rebalance in PS, might be slightly reddish/hottish now, but the difference to the original is quite obvious...

Hi,

Rejected for Oversharped and Contrast:

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...0090102_IMG_7268-OODLE-anet222.jpg

I can see the oversharped areas but not the contrast reason anymore.
If i boost contrast some more the image would look 'enhanced'

Opinions?

Hi, I posted this on the part 2 thread but got no answers.
Can anybody help me please?

This one has been rejected over color. I know it has a strong blue cast (and also needs sharpening, and maybe other things that you may suggest) but I can't find the right color balance for this one. The sample here is raw, I only cropped it. When I uploaded I had modified some of the color but as I said, couldn't reach the right balance.

Thanks in advance!

No, I'm not a bit surprised; thus the reason behind me saying "I went way out on the limb with this one". See, I'm all about trying new motives, seeing what's going to work and what isn't. There are plenty of examples of the focus of a photo being on more than one thing - not only the aircraft.

Things get boring when we take the same side shots of the same aircraft over, and over, and over. No harm in spicing it up a bit, even if it means a rejection. At least you can say you tried.

That's how I see it.

I think I understand the idea behind the photo, but I'd like to add that the compostion is not the thing here. You could've used some extra lighting - such as flash to brightem the car and the aircraft. Another thing - the photo would look better if it was entirely taken in front of the a/c with the car there also.

Hi everybody,

can anybody explain the "double" rule to me exactly? I have a cockpit shot accepted in the database and now I uploaded a picture of the same aircraft cockpit and it got rejected for double. The picture in the database shows the FO seat empty with the yoke and 3 screens, taken from the far back left of the cockpit.
Now, the other picture was taken sitting ON the FO seat, looking to the left and showing 5 of the 6 screens. The angle is a little higher than the eyesight, so you are looking down on the autopilot panel, the screens and both FMCs. It is the same flight, same registration, but I always thought 2 different angles like that would be allowed. Of course not 6 or 7. But I thought 2 would be possible.

Any opinions here?

I have 2 other pictures of the same airplane, same day, same location in the database, but again 2 different angles. Here it was ok.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help.

Were they taken on the same day? The way that I understand it (and this is a limited understanding), is that any shot depicting the same aircraft in the same sequence on the same day by the same photographer will be regarded as double.

So they either need to be greatly different, which I'd assume cockpit shots aren't, or need to be of a special aircraft, in order to get by the double.

Yes, same day, same flight. Both cockpit shots, but completly different angles from the cockpit. So the question is: how different need the angle to be in the cockpit that the shot gets accepted? If you see both pictures, you wouldn't know it is the same aircraft as you cannot see the registration. And the angle is really different.

Quoting Whappeh (Reply 21):

So that means, 2 shots of the cockpit at the same day will never get accepted even if it is a very different angle?

Here are the 2 shots:

and (NOT EDITED), I only have the unedited version on my laptop, the edited one is at home. So do not judge about the quality, it is just about the angle and the double issue

I think it is that the C of Condor got cut off partly. Make the crop wider that you can see the full 'C'. Just my guess here.

Need your opinion on this one. Rejected for "soft". Seems in focus and sharp enough to me, USM applied 2x. Adding more USM would enhance it too much IMO.

Rejected for color (again). I upped the contrast a little and changed the color balance to slightly cooler, not enough I guess... they gave me a reupload warning. I still don't see the color cast it was originally rejected for.

By 'raw' do you mean JPEG straight from the camera, or actually processed from a RAW file? There's a huge colour cast, and the overall quality doesn't look that great. If it came from a RAW file you -might- be able to save it. Otherwise, I don't think there's a chance.

Quoting Codeshare (Reply 17):

It's actually not that bad, but I would have to agree with the rejection reasons. You can see the over-sharpening in the wheels, for example. It needs a bit of kick (higher) of contrast. There is a yellow/green colour cast. As for the quality, you can see it in the background, but that may just be an artifact of the over-sharpening.

Quoting Neophyte (Reply 20):

I'd guess your cropping choice wasn't too good. crop it a bit closer (i.e. cut out the engines all together, and crop above the signage in the foreground.

Quoting Midnightair (Reply 23):
Need your opinion on this one. Rejected for "soft".

The shot you posted doesn't look too soft, but if you've had to apply a lot of USM, then maybe it was soft to start with, and you can sometimes tell that by the amount of sharpening applied.

I've been working on this F-16 picture for awhile, it was rejected initially for Dark and I posted that one back in Post Screening Thread 2. After a few days with no input, I lighted it up and put in back in the queue. So now I'm back here again with a new set of reject reasons: Contrast and Quality.

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...ections/big/20090111_DSC_0575d.jpg

I can understand the Contrast, I may have been a bit heavy handed with that, but the Quality rejection baffles me. The Email had no specifics as to why. What is it that they see that I'm not seeing? And the big question, can it be saved or is it best to move on?

Thanks in advance,
Nick

I have two pictures rejected.
The first one i have rejected for two times.First time it was because of softness (nose softness).

The second time now because of oversharpen,heat haze.

Rejected for contrast, too far away and not level (rotate CCW).

Are the whites not really white, and the blacks not black? Or is it something else?

Regarding "too far away," should I crop foreground? How much? What about cropping the top?

Regarding "level," I understand what the screener sees where the grass meets the trees, but that is a hill sloping down to the right. I straightened the shot by getting the trees vertical. I believe the shot is straight. How do I address that?

This is my first submission to this site, so I probably have a lot to learn.

Thanks,
Ed

SZG is no flat terrain so it's hard to get shots level, but I think mine are level. Just look at the building on the right side in the first pic:

Quoting Air4cfun (Reply 31):
I've been working on this F-16 picture for awhile

I'd hazard a guess that the quality rejection was because of the heat haze, something that's not really able to be fixed in processing (you can see it around the missiles and their pylons).

Quoting Nikog (Reply 32):
Hi,
I have two pictures rejected.

As with Air4dcfun's shot, your two shots suffer pretty badly from heat haze. You can see it pretty easily in the cheat lines on the first one (they should perfectly straight, not kind of wavy, and along the wing, winglet, and engines of the second shot, where you can again easily see the 'wavy' effect that heat haze causes). Unfortunately, as stated above there is not much you can do to in processing to remove it. You could try down-sizing to 1024pix to try to hide it, but it probably won't work. In fact, I just tried that, down-sizing from 1200 to 1024, and I could still pretty easily see the haze effect, so sorry, don't think there is anything you can do at this point.

Quoting EdBrown (Reply 33):
This is my first submission to this site, so I probably have a lot to learn.

Most of us did when we started to submit, so if you're patient and willing to work at it, you should be able to start getting shots in.

As for the shot you had rejected, yup, needs CCW rotation (regardless of whether the hill was sloping down to the right... the screeners can't guess that, so it needs to 'appear' level).
The contrast is pretty harsh, so maybe trying toning it down a little. And it would certainly benefit from a better crop. I'd try a 2x3 ratio rather than the 3x4 ratio you have, and then crop out everything on the sides that isn't the plane. Then I'd downsize it to something like 1024 to hide any other quality issue that the tighter cropping might bring up.

Good luck!

All the buses and air stairs I'd imagine.

By 'raw' do you mean JPEG straight from the camera, or actually processed from a RAW file? There's a huge colour cast, and the overall quality doesn't look that great. If it came from a RAW file you -might- be able to save it. Otherwise, I don't think there's a chance.

I meant JPEG straight from the camera. The camera I had that day didn't have raw mode (it wasn't even mine), but since it got rejected only for colour I thought it might had a chance if I found the right color balance, which I hadn't been able to do. I of course corrected (or tried to) the very strong blue cast, but it was still no good... so the question was basically aimed to knowing what would the right color balance for that picture be, and left totally unedited except for cropping in that example. I'd still like to hear something about the color balance, concerning the other aspects I understand is not a very good quality picture, the camera wasn't very good, nor am I as a photographer (learning everyday).

Thank you very much for your input!.

Hey guys,

here is a photo from A6-EDA. It was 29th of July, 2008 the delivery day. After take off on runway 05 in XFW, the A380 made a fly by over the Elbe river.

Any chance to get it accept in the database?



Cheers

Timo

The scene is too cluttered, and the planes are blocked by buses, etc.

Looks overexposed on the nose and under the wings looks flat (lack of contrast) unless it's my monitor. The grey looks hazy anyway. There seems to be a blue/green colour cast as well.

A little bit washed-out feeling (insufficient contrast), some parts are overexposed, and sky is a little grainy. By the way, there is another thread for pre-screening photos. It's better to post prescreen requests into that thread.

Hello

A few days ago I had this picture rejected for motive, obviously without a message from the screener, which would have been helpful to know what crop would be considered acceptable.
There many strange crops being accepted lately, so my question is why isn't this one valid? Is the picture that bad that it doesn't deserve to be on a.net??

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...ons/big/20090108_ECHRPfinalred.jpg

btw, this picture with this crop has been screener choice on other well-known aviation sites, so I really do not understand the reasoning behind this rejection.

Regards

With the amount of wierd crops that have been accepted lately (examples available upon request  Wink ) it's hard to understand that your picture has been rejected.  Sad

Very strange indeed. Did you add a comment to the photo explaining the motive/picture? I mean on THIS site, comment on the other site is not the story here.

Hi, thanks for the reply

No, i don´t add any comment to screeners on THIS site.
OK lets forget the OTHER site. It´s really necesary to explain to an expertise screener the reason for the closeup?

Can i improve my photo or they just don´t want it in the DB?

Best Regards

Well, but isn't that a form of pointing out that there is nothing wrong with the crop? Unless everyone else in the avitation-photography world is wrong, it enhances and justifies the complaint, especially when so many "strange" (for lack of a better word) crops being accepted, usually by well-known photographers.
