Post-Screening (combatshadow)

Sat Dec 14, 2013 4:42 am

My first submission of this photo received a rejection for soft.
This was the first submission:

So I added a bit of sharpening and resubmitted. This time, I got an even harsher rejection which I disagree with all the way around. I'd like some opinions please.

The 2nd rejection was for "heat haze" "quality" and "overexposed". I disagree on all three counts.

Thanks for the feedback!

I think you did your best. Because i can't see any problem on this photo. And heat haze on the background, not on the plane.

Not sure about overexposed, but there is heat haze on the wings, especially on the starboard wing.

Agree with heat haze. Overexposed isn't necessarily accurate, but the photo is a bit washed out. A slight decrease in brightness and a shot of contrast could help.

Thanks guys. I can see what you're calling heat haze on the wings, but in the original, full size photo, that's nothing but the transition to shadow on the lower camber. Even if it was heat haze, I really would consider that borderline. Why would there be heat haze on the wings, but not on the landing gear?

Got another one I'd like some opinions or assistance on.

This one got, what I thought, was a harsh rejection that was mostly not warranted.

It was rejected for: grainy, soft, oversharpened, (and category, cause I must have forgot to mark special livery).

I think I can see the grain in the sky, but everything else? Or maybe I need to take a day or two and look at it again.

I think that last one will benefit from light touch of noize reduction (dark part of the belly and the sky), it also a bit jagged at engine throat and I can see some white border around nose gear door. Nothing seems soft for me.

Thank you Kulverstukas, very helpful, especially the jaggies on the engine. I couldn't see that at first. Helps to have other eyes view your work.

The WN is slightly oversharpened. The screener should have left a personal message indicating what category was unchecked - I will email the screener to remind him.

Soft seems to be irrelevant, unless the screener meant that the image is soft and it was oversharpened in attempt to fix the softness - again would be better to leave a personal message to that effect.

Thank you Pete.

One more I'd like to ask about. This one was rejected for "Soft and/or out of focus, over-sharpened to compensate". That was my personal message, oversharpened was the reject.

The original image was pretty sharp, especially not bad for a moving aircraft, but it was a bit grainy, so I did try to reduce that.

Otherwise though, I can't see how this is oversharpened. Feedback?

I'd agree with the rejection. Quality looks to have suffered, maybe due to NR. Smaller size might be advisable.

For what it's worth, I'd probably say the same for the WN, though not quite as bad.
