Yes it would be double as we require photos to be at least 90° different, which is not the case. If your shot in the db was more side-on we could talk about it, but as it is not. Sorry.

Advice would be appreciated, hope the sharpening works better now.

Rejected for soft:

I'm puzzzled about the soft rejection. If any thing, I think the image is too contrasty. You're edited version looks oversharpened to me.

Thanks Jehan.
I reduced the contrast and the sharpness a bit, does it work better now?

Is this one oversharpened too?

Do you only look for halos and jaggies, or is it an "eye" for the correct amount?

Rene

Rene,

Unfortunately both still look oversharpened to me... a bit of a "Crispy" appearance.

Regarrds,

Jehan

Thanks Jehan,

I made som changes based on your feedback and the image got accepted (the EasyJet). Thank you for taking your time.

This one is an older image from 2012, I am a bit unsure about the quality:

Hello Rene,

The Sterling 737 is showing some noise in the dark areas (e.g under the wing, etc). Also, I think it can be placed a little higher in the frame. The 737 from this angle is tricky due to the tail. Perhaps some other opinions will help, but this "feels" a little low in the frame. Try placing it a little bit higher in the frame and see how it looks. Otherwise, it is fine for me.

Thanks for the quick and clear answer.

I will adjust the position and add some noise reduction.
Thanks.

Hi Rene,

The latest version is much better for me.

A couple of shots again.

I am a little worried about the lighting on the upper part of the wing and the tail. Is it acceptable?

The same questions goes for the heli:

Cessna taildragger: Light is fine, but blurry around the tail

Heli: Also blurry around the tail

Agree with Tim about the blurry tail on the tail dragger. Chopper looks passable to me.

Feedback appreciated - It was a harsh light today. Is exposure and contrast right?

Hi,
Both exposure and contrast look ok for me although contrast could be increased slightly, but you would be better to check "Dirty" since I can see some dirty spots in the sky area. Also looks tad soft for me at this size as well.

Harry

Thanks Harry.
You are right, the dirty spots are identified and dealt with. Sharpness and contrast are increased a bit and the photo is in the que now.

Regards,
Rene

There seems to be a difference between my monitor and my tablet - The exposure on quite a few of my rejected photos looks okay on the monitor, but appear a fair bit darker on the tablet.
That could indicate I need to adjust my monitor?

How do these 2 photos appear to you (primarily exposure and contrast):

The AT7 looks overexposed and flat on my screen. The CR9 looks a bit odd but it's likely the angle you've taken it at vs. the angle of the sun. Doesn't work for me as looks punchy in some areas but flat in others. It's also very bright in parts.

That might the words I was looking for, thanks.

The CR9 will never be good, the light was to harsh. What about this edit of the ATR, better?:

Definitely better but still looks a touch flat to me. I'd give it a slight contrast boost and a shot of saturation.
