Post-Screening photos - fsx98

Sun Aug 05, 2018 7:02 am

Hello everyone! In addition to the pre-screening photos thread that I have opened, I am also opening a post-screening thread in regards to whether one or more of the rejected photos could be fixed.

To start off, I have a Southwest Airlines B737-700 in Louisiana One livery photo rejected for quality, halos, and noise, all of which can be addressed or fixed; I also have a personal message in regards to the rejection but I did not receive a rejection email that would have the personal message on why it was rejected, as the airliners.net website is in the process of moving to the Google Cloud Platform (from the support email received from a.net) and I have yet to receive the rejection email. What is the personal message in regards to this rejection that I didn't receive?

Here is the link to the rejected photo below (#5104083):

The personal was: "Noisy sky, slight halo arounds the aircraft."

I'm seeing jaggies on the leading edges of wing & hor.stab. and also agree the quality is marginal. Noise isn't that apparent for me, but agree on slight halos. Personally, I use the "quality" rejection to indicate that the photo isn't salvagable, but not sure if others do the same.

Thanks for the personal message, Kas. In some cases when a photo is rejected for quality, I would try to completely redo the photo that was rejected and then reupload the photo with edits; in few cases, some of the photos rejected for quality got accepted for some reason.

For this Southwest photo (#5104083), I'm pretty sure that I have poorly tried to remove the halos from the picture so I'll probably try to re-edit the photo completely and reupload; I will post this photo in my pre-screening thread for any opinions and if it isn't passable, I will throw in the towel for this photo that could not be fixed.

I now have two photos that were recently rejected for different reasons:

N791AN (Dark, OS, and Underexposed):
https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/air ... a693b2d8ca
N426AA (Blurry, Compressed, and Underexposed):
https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/air ... a2fb73be3a

Any advice on whether either photo would be fixable is appreciated!

N791AN: doesn't look dark/underexposed to me, but the titles are oversharped.
N426AA: doesn't look underexposed either, but the right part is blurry.

N791AN: will sharpen less but will double check on exposure settings;
N426AA: will crop out the blurry areas but again, will double check for exposure settings

Hi everyone! Just a quick update that the N791AN photo was accepted into the a.net database; now I have another AA 772 photo (N794AN) rejected (OS and soft at the same time); can anyone give me pointers on which areas are oversharpened and which areas are soft?

Here is the link to the photo below:

Front looks soft to me, tail borderline, and the titles are slightly oversharpened, but borderline. It is also fairly noisy, so I would suggest a pass of NR.

Thanks for the pointers Preston! I have applied your suggested fixes and re-uploaded the photo to the queue.

I have two photos uploaded for priority screening because both of these registrations are new to the database; both are rejected for blurry; will downsizing the photo help the two?

N549M: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/ai ... 23f81de9d0
N128KH: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/ai ... 086fa91df9

Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

You could try downsizing, but imo I don't think that will mask the blur enough. The second probably has a better chance than the first.

I have four other shots of N549AE that are rejected for blurriness; will downsizing one or more of the below shots help mask the blurriness?

49M:
The photo of the left side of the aircraft, with the tower in the background is the best one from that series (2nd of the 4 links). Blurryness isn't that bad, so should be passable in a smaller size.

Sorry I had to reject it, but I think you made an editing boo-boo.

Photo you linked on forum: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/ai ... 98f79e4da0
Rejected photo: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/ai ... 58bd03600a

Compare the tail and sky above the treeline. Definitely something off there, likely due to editing brushes. In general the sky is also worse than the forum file. Did you make a fresh edit?

In each and every rejection, I always start off with a fresh edit; I was much concerned about the halos in the sky after equalizing this photo.

Frankly, the windows and the American flag on the tail look quite blurry to me (soft at best).

Should I try re-uploading the photo by re-editing with another pass of sharpening?

Hi everyone! It's been a while since posting my last post-screened photos and I have a DL B738 photo recently rejected solely for UE; may be a simple rejection to fix, but was wondering if this photo could be simply salvaged w/ an increase in exposure or should I bin this one completely?

I have an Alaska A319 that was first rejected for blurry, low contrast, and UE; re-uploaded it with a downsized photo to mask blurriness and increased contrast/exposure settings and rejected again for all of the above except low contrast; is this worth an appeal or should I bin this one?

I'd bin it. It looks blurry at 1024px, that is pretty well as low as you can go. I think the exposure looks ok, but there is no getting around blurriness.

Thanks to both; I have another Alaska A319 up for priority screening with the new livery, but was rejected for OS, w/ a PM of:

"Very oversharpened. Previous photo was not soft, but also sharp on the aircraft aoutlines."

Was wondering if the aircraft outlines are oversharpened? May apply the eraser tool on a new layer after a pass of unsharp mask on PS.

The outlines looked too sharp, usually in those cases you will see a thin white line around the aircraft outline (where the aircraft meets the sky).

Hi everyone; just had this Virgin Australia B773 rejected for dark, soft, and common; it may be unlikely, but I was just wondering if this photo could be improved further?

Too much clutter detracts from the picture. It would do a lot better if there wasn't so much stuff around, I'd toss it.

The angle of light is bad with the nose and part of the belly being dark compared to the rest of the fuselage. Softness doesn't appear to be much of an issue to me. That it is a common air-frame means more stringent screening criteria. I would save this for the personal album.
