Hi all,

I just received a rejection that the colour is off at this picture:

Can anybody tell me what's wrong? Thanks in advance.

Color looks not so bad I think, but as screener mentioned that the body of the a.c has a little bit magenta / reddish color. Reducing it slightly would be good.
BTW, you can actually just creat only on Thread for yourself and post all your problems there rather than making many like this ; ) Would be more convenient for all of us.

Regards,

That's only what the H.S. said after appeal (which has unfortunately become almost a standard procedure after any initial rejection), however the 'regular' screener rejected it for high in frame and underexposed. No mentioning of any colour flaws whatsoever (I had already reduced the reddish cast compared to my previous upload).
Don't get me wrong, I like the principle of screening (an extra pair of eyes) since a photographer might sometimes miss certain flaws and it COULD give valuable feedback in order to improve photography (or rather photo editing) skills. With these subjective/arbitrary rejections, however, it feels more like a roulette game. I've had dozens of photos accepted from this day/location, all edited in exactly the same way, so I doubt that none of those have the same reddish cast, are underexposed or high in frame.
I have just uploaded a new version: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/ai ... 65c8d91ae5 Wondering if it will be rejected again for reddish cast or if it will be cyan cast this time. I guess I will find out in about 10 days :).

you are not Andrew Hunt!! nor you have any pairs of legs in the foreground.
Anyway, the second version looks better on my calibrated monitor.

This photo has a clear blue colour cast on aircraft. Still went through in top 10

And aircraft blurry too. In aviation sites, aircraft's Wb, sharpness, focus all matter doesn't it? Night images under yellow light have been rejected for bad Wb. In this case it was ignored.

Surprise, surprise, the new version is now rejected for high in frame and "quality" (whatever that might be). Can anybody point out the difference in centering of this particular shot compared to these similar accepted shots: https://www.airliners.net/search?aircra ... splay=card
Thanks in advance for your help.

Fortunately the HS agrees, now accepted on appeal.
