Rejected for Blurry, OS, Overexposed

Again, not seeing any blur in the original file. I even had someone suggest that this image was underexposed before I added it to the queue.

Seems like there’s been a ton of blurry rejections recently. :?

I'd wait for Kas, but me personally, I don't see blur or OS. I do agree with it being overexposed though, turn it down a couple notches.

It's a bit too sharp and the whites of the fuselage look overexposed. Not seeing an unpassable amount of blur though.

Thanks guys. I’ll go ahead and make changes. I’ll note the blur in a comment.

The Alaska B738 got rejected yet again for Blurry.

Still having a very hard time seeing any, if it's even there, in the full size photo.

FWIW this is the EXIF data of the image above:

Nikon D3300
70-300mm f/4.0-5.6
6000 x 4000 * 5.90 MB JPEG

ISO 200 105mm f/8.0 1/1000 sec

It's on the sharp side, but not really blurry.

The American ERJ that originally got rejected for OE got rejected again. I'm really dumbfounded with this one. :ouch:
https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/ai ... be1a58af6c

-Blurry
-Heat haze
-Underexposed
-PM "Nose"

How come the reasons completely changed from the initial rejection? Also, how is heat haze an issue when it was 40 degrees Fahrenheit the day I took this? Issue with resizing?

It's not too bad. Let me know when you appeal, so I can try to catch it.

Heat haze can occur at any time and is coupled with the difference between the air and surface temperature. So a cold day (temperature-wise) is not necessarily a gaurantee for no heathaze.

Heat haze, also called heat shimmer, refers to the inferior mirage experienced when viewing objects through a layer of heated air; for example, viewing objects across hot asphalt or through the exhaust gases produced by jet engines. When appearing on roads due to the hot asphalt, it is often referred to as a highway mirage.

Convection causes the temperature of the air to vary, and the variation between the hot air at the surface of the road and the denser cool air above it creates a gradient in the refractive index of the air. This produces a blurred shimmering effect, which affects the ability to resolve objects, the effect being increased when the image is magnified through a telescope or telephoto lens.
A hot-road mirage, "fake water" on the road, the most common example of an inferior mirage

Light from the sky at a shallow angle to the road is refracted by the index gradient, making it appear as if the sky is reflected by the road's surface. The mind interprets this as a pool of water on the road, since water also reflects the sky. The illusion fades as one gets closer.

On tarmac roads it may look as if water, or even oil, has been spilled. These kinds of inferior mirages are often called "desert mirages" or "highway mirages". Both sand and tarmac can become very hot when exposed to the sun, easily being more than 10 °C hotter than the air one meter above, enough to create conditions suitable for the formation of the mirage.

Hi Kas. I just appealed the image and sent you a PM letting you know.

Thank you for providing that explanation. Interesting to read. Although I just find it strange how I still don't see any haze in the full size file and no other images taken on that day had any either (many of which were accepted without issue).

Hello guys. Just had this priority upload rejected for blurry and quality.
https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/ai ... 19eb7e4f45

Is this even salvageable or should I bin it?

The upper part of the fuselage and tail are blurry; best to either downsize it (my personal preference, depending on size of rejected photo) or bin the photo.

Doesn't look super blurry, but the sky and fuselage are overexposed. Light definitely not doing you any favors, not sure if can be salvaged.

Thank you Victor and Kas for your feedback. I'll probably just throw it out then. No big deal.

Nothing related to screening but since 2018 is coming to a close, I'm likely going to making a new thread for 2019 since this one is getting a bit cluttered. So I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed to this thread as it's been slightly over a year since I started it up. I'm shocked at how far I've come since then, even though I think there is always room for improvement. I never thought I would have over 200 uploads and over 75k views on here within a year, and it's largely thanks in part to the feedback and advice you all have kindly given me.

Happy New Year's and cheers to 2019! :santahat:
