Tried to edit the previous post, but it appears I am a bit too late. Sorry for the unnecessary clutter, but here's a couple more for prescreening. Thanks!

T-38 looks slightly oversharpened, but may be passable.

The Southwest looks fine to me.

Agree with the assessment of the T-38. Jaggies along the leading edge of the vertical stabilizer.
SW looks blurry(main titles) to me.I would try it at a smaller size (e.g. 1200 pixels).

Thanks Evan and Jehan, here are re-edits of both. The WN is not blurry straight out of camera, there was slight NR used so it may be that. I attempted to increase sharpening on the titles slightly, while the T-38 has reduced overall sharpening. Thanks!

So the KC-130 was rejected for overexposed. UT was also rejected for flat and overexposed. That’s a bit frustrating considering a head screener said they looked alright, and I personally don’t see those issues. Thoughts? Thanks!

KC-130 to me is definitely OE, UT does look like it could use more contrast for sure, I personally don't think it's over-exposed though.

Hi all, been a bit since I've uploaded. Threw a couple in the queue and they were both rejected. Kunming for underexposed and Alaska for underexposed/soft. I suppose I can sort of see how Kunming is a bit dark but I'm failing to see either for Alaska. Thoughts?

Hey all, this recently got rejected for soft and I'm not quite seeing where. To me, the only place that's not right on the verge of oversharpened is the tail. Any thoughts, or opinions on where its soft? Thanks!

Hi,
For me,the sharpness looks not bad for me though the nose and cockpit have slightly soft. Considering the amount of this a/c in current DB, I would say it's passble for me since there is only one in DB now.

Hi all, 115DU got in on appeal.


Here's the new Pixar special for pre-screening. It's a pretty routine shot but the blue on blue is throwing me off a little, so I just want to make sure it looks alright. Thanks!

Hi,

the 789 looks fine as it is.
I personally find the crop on the 772 too tight, I would recommend to give it a little breathing space on both sides. The whites on the nose are a bit bright IMO, so maybe bring the highlighst slightly down.

Hi Julien,

Thanks for the feedback! I totally agree on the crop, but unfortunately widening it much more throws off the centering, it’s pretty much maxed out on the bottom of the frame crop wise. Would that be a rejection or just preference? Thanks!

no in this case it would not be a rejection reason. Just a suggestion which would make the shot look better.

Here's the Eco-Demonstrator re-done. Unfortunately not much I could do regarding the crop, but at some point I'll upload a shot of the other side with a more conventional crop. :) Thanks!

Let me clarify, nothing wrong with the crop generally . I like it as well. My point was not about the crop itself just about the fact it is very tightly cut. I just prefer it a bit wider. I started in the non-digital era, and still prefer a look that looks like it could have come straight out of the cam. :-)

A bit looser crop would be nice for next time, but I'd add it as-is too.

Thanks all. I completely agree on the crop being looser, most of the rest of my uploads are like that. In this case, this annoying fence ruined my ability to widen the crop without the airplane being too low. I've been looking at taller ladders to get around this, and allow for more flexibility, so hopefully that will mitigate this irritant of a fence. :)

Hey all, three recent rejections I'm struggling with a bit. The Alaska turnoff shot was rejected for quality, noise, oversharpened. I can somewhat agree with that, I knew that was going to be borderline overall. The Alaska side on was rejected for blurry, oversharpened and quality. Not really seeing that one at all. The tanker was rejected for heat haze, quality, and overexposed. I can see the overexposed, but I'm not seeing any haze or quality issues. Let me know what y'all think. Thanks!

I screened those images. Unfortunately, to my eyes, all three images were of marginal quality..seemed like a lot of haze in the air that was affecting the clarity.

N918AK: At this size, see jaggies on the titles and cockpit windows, etc. The fuselage also looks a bit grainy. While some may think, by themselves the issues are minor, together it just did not seem to make for a good image...ergo the quality rejection as well. Not mentioned is also that the white fuselage shows a slight pink color cast (sorry I missed that on the first review).
N918AK (side): The window line and nose/cockpit looked blurry to me together with jaggies on the nose gear and gear doors. Again with the general haze, the quality was lacking.
KC-46: Again a amalgamation of small issues together just did not work for me.

I wrestled with these and am sorry to have declined them. Can't say that I nail them each time either. Based on feedback from others, feel free to appeal them.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

Jehan

Hi all,

On the back of 5 straight rejections, it somewhat feels like I've forgotten how to edit. This one was rejected for cyan cast (not mentioned the first time but I can somewhat see that being a problem.) Additional rejections include flat, overexposed, and oversharpened. I do not see the first two of those, and the only area of oversharpening I see is on the registration, which feels pretty harsh. Thoughts? Thanks!

I SO’d that for overexposure and code for the first attempt. Didn’t see/screen the other version(s). Code not a big deal as I added it, but if rejected it should be with a complete screening.

Thanks Kas, what are your thoughts on the second version I linked above? I’m assuming code would be “02” since that’s what’s on the nose/tail.

My thoughts:
1. Zero G B727. Fuselage is a little bright. It could benefit from some reduced brightness. Also some vignetting in the upper corners.
2. Omni B7575. Looks a bit flat and needing contrast. Perhaps a little brighter for the tail?
3. Xiamen B737: Needs more contrast. I also think it will look better with a tighter crop (engine on right side/tail on left side)

Zero-G looks a tad oversharpened especially along the wing's leading edge. Omni Air I think is fine. Xiamen Air I agree with Jehan.

Thanks Jehan and Evan,

Here's re-edits of those three. I did reduce sharpening on the Zero-G just slightly to get rid of the wing jaggies. I wasn't seeing the vignetting but I did attempt to correct that as well. I left the crop a little wider on the Xiamen to show a bit more of the jetwash, but I can see the flipside of that as well. :) Thanks!

Thanks Tim and Kas,

Here's a re-edit of Xiamen with color adjusted, and a couple others. I know the lighting on the tanker isn't fantastic, but since that's not an often-seen angle I'd like to give it a shot if it looks otherwise ok. :) Thanks!
