I've not much clue about the site's standards these days but most are common subjects shot in pretty poor light. Additionally, the GAF 340 looks blurry to me.

I personally wouldn't try and upload any of them, but I think you'll have to wait for a screener to chime in to get some definitive clarity.

The first thing thai i want to mention is that the size you used for those photos are too big.
1 : Pretty blurry to me and slight underexposed. Poor quality i think.
2 : Undereposed to me. Also soft. Smaller size will be better.
3 : Underexposed. Soft. Slight blurry.
4 : Blurry, Quality slight underexposed.Especially the tail.
5 : Blurry ,Quality.Especially the wildows nose, and tail.
6 : Soft and slight blurry at this size. Slight underexposed.
7 : Blurry toward the front part and the windows.
8 : Undeexposed, Soft and slight blurry at this size. Poor quality at this size too.
9 : Marginal Quality .Slight underexposed.
10 : Windows look blurry to me.
In conclusion, the weather condition really does not really good for you. Besides, you used very large size on those photos, which make the quality looks pretty poor. Just my personal opinions.
Cheers,
Harry

Hi guys, I'd be happy to have your opinion on these shots:

I'm having difficulties in A.net so this time I added some 1024px shots.
Have a great day,

Hey Dara,

1) looks good
2) looks good
3) cheatlines of the Hawker are jaggy, but otherwise good. Nice framing!
4) heat haze

Sadly two of the three shots "Rossiya & Nordavia" got rejected. First one for "oversharpened, noise heat haze" and the second one for being "high in frame". What do you think guys? Should I appeal for any of them?

The RYR's look hazed, the other 2 are passable.

Hey Dara,

Sorry for the delay:

Sadly the Alsie Express got rejected for being high in frame but I believe it is centered. Do you think I should appeal guys?

Imo it is a bit high, and a recrop would at least partially remove the distracting wire. It’s borderline in my eyes.

So would a 16:9 ratio crop. But as is, centering looks fine to me.

I saw it got upheld on appeal, sorry for that. I still think it's passable and wasn't able to screen the appeal.

No problem Kas, going to make a 16:9 crop and upload it again. I'm having some problems with the cropping as until now I was thinking that the fuselage should be centered; I will consider the tail from now on.

Sadly today 3 of my shots got rejected, the 4th one is still in screening waiting for the 3rd screener. What do you think guys? Apart from the F-100 (IDG) that I do completely agree with the outcome I guess the other two could be passable. I'd be happy to have your opinion on them:

Hi Dara,
I'm sorry that three of them look blurry & soft to me, especially at this large size is obvious. Title, REG.

BTW, Blurry is almost unfixable. Try to pick some non-blurry image and use smaller size will be better i think. ;)

Hi Dara,

Unfortunately I have to agree that all 3 are blurry. I suggest dropping them and not bothering with a smaller edit, sorry.

Surely will do. I have to edit some new ones I guess or maybe pick other frames of those. Thanks for the comment btw.

Hey guys, how do you see the chances for these three shots?

I have to mention that EP-ICE was previously rejected for dark and yellow cast.
Have a great day,

Dara, just FYI. There is some truth in the rejections, so next time please do play with the color balance (Kelvin slider in the RAW editor) a bit, as well as checking noise in the sky.

YR-BGJ: passable
N644UA: check level on that again. IIRC the slope is more upwards (meaning it needs CW).
PH-BFI: softish, not sure if caused by slight blur of the original. Extra sharpening likely leads to jaggies? Passable
B-5967: passable, but dull colors (perhaps needs some extra saturation?
N1603: marginally passable, bit dull colors as well.

Hello Dara.

I find myself broadly agreeing with Kas's comments - when I opened your photos I thought the lighting/editing might be a factor.

I have taken the liberty of adding a couple of editing changes to a few of your images, and that does make a difference. I am ashamed to say it has been so long since I have posted on similar topics that I can't remember/work out how to repost those photos straight from my computer. When I opened the Delta 767 and China Southern Airbus, they both benefited significantly from increasing the midtones in the 'levels' histogram, and also then adding a little extra contrast. Those two adjustments slightly improve the colours, but those also can take a little extra saturation without them looking artificial.

Cheers.

Paul

Thanks guys,

I will work a bit on both the Delta and the China Southern and will post them here later. I was aware of the dull colors but by mistake, I was thinking to add a bit of yellowness (due to lack of experience) instead of adding saturation and midtone elevation.

It's always great to have your feedback and I really appreciate it :-).

Cheers,
Dara

I came up with these. I would be so glad to have your feedback again :-D.

CW rotation:

Another frame:

Added +10 contrast, +10 saturation, and elevated the midtones a little bit.
