Pre Screening, Epten

Sun Mar 31, 2013 11:34 am

I got this rejected couple of months ago for soft and quality. I tried re-editing. How does it look now? Any chance?

I can see you have tried to sharpen it, but unfortunately it looks like the quality simply isn't there for this one.

How about this one? Rejected about a year ago for oversharpen and quality, tried re-editing:

There's a fair amount of compression, and it looks quite soft, almost blurry towards the tail.

Another attempt, this time from my visit of Vienna. Any good? Is there a reddish cast as I suspect?

Did you edit the sky? It all appears to be the exact same shade of blue. If so, that's a big no-no for A.net.

*gulp* yes, the sky was edited.

I deleted the photo from the queue.

OK, here it is with a genuine sky. Is it soft? Any other issues?

Airplane looks passable, but there are several large and small dust spots in the sky. Also looks blotchy or compressed.

Now that we have the edited sky out of the way, I have to ask, what's the point of that? The genuine sky looks perfectly fine....

The "point" is I was too lazy to remove dust spots.  

How's this for motive?

I think so in some spots - the horizontal stabilizer, the forward part of the vertical stabilizer, the props, maybe the window frames and dots on the tail. The main wheels also have a bit of a halo around them which is probably from a bit too much sharpening.

1. Looks a bit OS/marginal quality, maybe a couple dust spots toward the left (could be part of the clouds, tough to tell), and I'm not crazy about the clipped stab - feels unnecessary here.

2. Looks OS in parts (titles, wing), and there appears to be half a dust spot poking out of the nose.

Is it somewhat backlit? The tail looks rather dark...

I'm not sure about heat haze. It does look oversharpened along the wings to me.

Hi,

This photo was rejected with reject reason: info. I searched for other pictures of the same aircraft and I can't find what am I missing?

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20130924_g1379015725.8885mig-29m2.jpg

Here's the info I provided:

Russia - Air Force
Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29M-2
Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29

Reg:
Code:
Cn: 7011

Belgrade - Batajnica (BJY / LYBT)
Serbia, September 2, 2012

Thanks for your help.

No idea why it was rejected. You could try adding "(9-67)" after "Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29M-2" or perhaps the screener was expecting a reg number.

Just to be sure - this is ex-747 Black, originally intended for Syria and now used for MiG demos at air shows, correct?

Because in Sept 2012, she did indeed lack a reg (and there are pictures in the a.net DB reflecting this) but she was (apparently) shot at MAKS wearing "747 Blue"

Unless the info in this photograph is wrong, in which case, I really don't know what is correct at all!

Personally I don't like it. I'd wait for a screener to comment for a clear answer, though.

Any luck with that MiG-29M2?

Crop feels a bit loose to me. I would crop in to the bat symbol on the left, and crop tighter on the right.

Not low in frame at all. Looks to be pretty nicely centered to me.

Maybe blurry? Looks oversharpened and marginal, especially on the tail.

Quoting epten (Reply 29):

First looks a bit dark. Sharpening is a bit variable.

Ditto for the second, minus the darkness. There are some blotches in the sky on both too - not sure if it's compression or editing artifacts.

Anybody? My upload queue is full, so if this flag thing isn't permitted I'd upload another photo, with more "conservative" motive.

Thanks in advance!

Motive looks fine to me, it's a great shot. There's quite a bit of noise / compression though. That will likely result in rejection.

My turn to moan!

This one got rejected for GRAINY and EDITING

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20131025_g1381933938.1457z3-ua-001.jpg

I can sort of understand grainy, since there a tiny amount of grain in the sky. But editing?

Screener comment is ""odd editing in sky".

What editing? What does that mean in the context of this particular photo?

Thank you for your replies.
