The "field" remark means that when uploading photos of Boeing and Airbus aircraft (among others) you should avoid sending any "Builder" data, as it only applies for license-built aircraft.

So, when you enter the registration and airport on the photo upload page, and click on Auto Complete, you find a list of possible matches for N809AW. Among them, you find these two entries:

From those, note how the second entry has an additional "Builder: Airbus". That is the one you should not select.

And to add to Miguel's explanation; if there is no other option and you see that the builder field is filled in when it shouldn't have been, please simply delete the entry of that field.

As for the photos, I'd let the first 2 go and agree that the third one looks a bit cyan. Otherwise passable.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I'll give the AA A320 another go and remove the cyan. Miguel and Kas, I'll delete any Builder entry I see.

3 new ones that I just entered into my queue. Was wondering if they are passable or not.

Having a hard time trying to get the level right. It seems as though despite the building being upright, the ground is not and vise-versa.

Have a question I'd like to ask...

Due to issues with my Adobe account I am completely locked out of Lightroom CC and can't use it. So for the time being, I am only using PS to edit. Getting used to the workflow and it seems to be working out but I am having one issue while editing. It seems like if I try to lift the shadows even at the slightest, lots of halos will form around the aircraft. Lifting the shadows in Lightroom obviously never led to this but it is happening in PS. Is there a way to mitigate that or should I use a different setting?

How are you lifting shadows? Shadow/Highlight command? Are you using CameraRAW?

The AA A320 I showed last week was rejected once again, now for Oversharpened and Underexposed.
https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/air ... 9921bf5fda

Made zero changes to the exposure and it went from Overexposed to Underexposed (?). Sharpening is also on par with other photos of mine that have been accepted.

Strongly considering an appeal but other opinions would be nice as well.

Hi Evan,
AA A320 : I'll tend to agree with "Unerexposed" since i think it could be brighter. Sharpness seems not bad to me. BTW, it has colour issue for me. It looks kind of cyan/blue (Could be fixed easily).
UA Star : Slight OS to me. Light isn't very good.
Spirit : Needs CW Rotation, sharpness and brightness look not bad to me although i'll tend to reduce brightness slightly (Not much).

So the image still looks cyan? :scratchchin: I added +3 red in PS to cancel out the cyan, but if I went above that I saw that the filter would become too obvious in specific areas such as under the fuselage and tail. If it's still cyan I will still go ahead and add more red.

As far as exposure, if it was rejected the first time for OE and then UE the second time when I made no changes to the exposure. So I imagined it was right in the middle but the screeners couldn't seem to figure that out.

Is it the STAR ALLIANCE titles across the fuselage giving that indication? Because those seemed hard to get rid of jaggies.

HarryLi wrote:

Totally agree. I just noticed that it looks off and was careless with seeing that. :hissyfit: I'll probably reduce the exposure by another .05-.10

I would let the Star Alliance 737 go. Quality seems poor with quite poor light as well.
Spirit: reduce highlights by -20, reduce the yellow channel by -20/25 (if shot in RAW). Level seems OK.
AA 320: brightness looks ok. color does looks cyan, but when trying to adjust in PS the differences are so marginal that I'm inclined to say that the color is passable.

I will have removed it from my queue and will hopefully find a better image of it. Unfortunately, the lighting is something I have to deal with since the primary landing runway here that has way better lighting isn't being used due to a construction project.

I had the same thought too back when I adjusted the filter. I will try an appeal then.

Re-edited the Spirit and added it back to the queue. How about now?
https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/air ... dc3024125a
I adjusted the highlights to -20 and barely gave the image CW since I noticed some of the light poles and the taxiway light in the first one looked off. I also reduced the yellow saturation by a little bit.

Well... the AA A320 was rejected on appeal. :roll: "Blurry, Quality, and Underexposed"

Here is the link once again.
https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/air ... 9921bf5fda

Not sure what could be done other than maybe the exposure. There was no indication of blurry in the original and I am not sure how quality could be poor when I was using my best lens at it's lowest length.

As far as motive, I think all but 4 will be rejected on those grounds. IMO the others are fine, C-5 tail is borderline OS in spots, and I am awful at judging wing views, so I'd wait for Kas. I'm doing the same haha

I removed the ones where motive is an issue and replaced them with other photos that I thought were less crowded. (A lot of these images were very tricky to take as I constantly had people unexpectedly get in the way of the shot :roll: ). Any feedback would be appreciated. :)

F-16: may be a little soft, but looks pretty good
T-1: minor OS, looks to need CCW but I'm a poor judge of rotation in these situations, so let the photoshop ruler decide for you
WOW 321: looks to have blur or softness in spots, nose gear makes me think blur
F9 321: looks low in frame, imo color is fine

Fri Jul 27, 2018 7:55 pm

Thanks guys for the feedback. The T-1 I'm having a hard time judging when it looks level. The version I posted above has about half of the hangar and the ground look uneven yet the right side of the hangar and the pole to the right are leveled. I might make another version adding CCW and compare.

I'm iffy overall on the WW A321. I zoomed in on the original and noticed some parts that looked very suspect but I thought resizing would cover some of that up. I could add selective sharpening to some areas and give it a shot but I'm not gonna hold my breath.

Agree that the F9 A321 is a bit low in frame after looking at it again several times. Should've picked that up right off the bat.

If Dark implies that the image is backlit, then how can that be valid? It certainly isn't backlit... I even waited until it wasn't to take that image.

I don't think they're implying backlit, it does have a bit of a dark feel, but imo it is passable. I'd suggest either slightly bump the exposure/shadows, or appeal. As for new versions, the T-1 is still borderline OS but to me is acceptable, the WW looks slightly blurry in spots and minor OS to compensate, the F9 is good to go imo. Pardon the rhyme.

Lighting is tough I will agree. Where do you see the sky being blotchy? I think it may be cloud cover since I did add NR to the sky after sharpening.

The blotchiness looked to be in the upper left, it is either a blown out cloud or artifact of NR.

Well I reopened the final version of the MU 77W and yes I can definitely see the blotchiness after equalizing the image. Most likely developed from the lighting. Was wondering if that could be fixed? Since there were a few images I took this past winter with the same problem and I could never fix it.

Blotchiness is usually caused by noise reduction. Can sometimes be fixed with some careful editing, but sometimes you're just SOL. For the MU, would even be better if the cart lower right could be avoided.

Turns out I added way too much noise reduction to the sky which likely caused the issue. I didn't add any this time (the background didn't need NR that much to be honest). Didn't see any after blotchiness editing and reuploaded.

IMO I would bin the MU, sorry. UA looks a tad soft at the nose but may be passable, AA 321 seems low and needing CW but I feel like the rotation is my eyes tricking me. I would let the trusty old ruler tool decide that one. MU inflight looks to be in harsh light, top is almost blown out and the shadows are quite dark, looks borderline OS in spots to me. Something weird happened to the reg, it looks all blurry and jumbled?

Oops, the AA A321 was't the final version. The one above I found out was a new reg and tried to priority add it but was rejected for Soft. I adjusted the rotation and gave it 10% more sharpening.

https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/air ... 5397f28ccf

As for the MU inflight, I really think it looks 'off', which is why I linked it in a reply. :D I may have lost an abnormal amount of quality when resizing it... ended up having to add way more sharpening than usual. It could be why the reg and other parts of the aircraft look funny.

Added sharpening after the original rejection for Soft, but now it's all of a sudden OS? I am also not seeing any blur in the original.

I took this shot through a window and they aren't exactly the greatest here. Maybe that's what is causing issues?

Also another rejection. Rejected twice now for Underexposed:

I'm not sure how I can make it any brighter? The lighting is already a bit on the harsh side. Anyone have any imput?

I agree about your concerns brightening it further as I have had similar issues. Are you able to play with the highlights and / or lighten up the shadows so it appears lighter without actually changing the exposure itself?

Chris, thanks for the feedback and I took your advice for the F-16. I lifted the shadows a little, reduced the highlights, and added back brightness to offset.

Old version vs latest version:
Old: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/air ... deaa8d08ef
New: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/air ... 53048309bb

Also, this United B738 was rejected for Low in Frame and Cyan cast:
Old: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/air ... d4de3c6418
New: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/air ... fdc4d50bd1

I don't know if I added enough red (+4), anyone with feedback regarding that?

The new F-16 edit looks better and is OK for me
United is also better.

What happened with the cloud towards the top right by the way? If you flip through both images quickly, the top part disappears in the old edit :)
