Post Screening Only Kulverstukas

Thu Nov 27, 2014 8:44 am

First question is for rejection with "soft parts, better at smaller quality soft overexposed"

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141126_p1416578897.405img_5683-1.jpg

Which parts are soft, as for me it looks close to OS and I use selective sharpening to mend it and not make jaggies visible everywhere? Also what to do with exposition - sky is already too dark and close to grainy, so I need to work on plane only.

Second is for three photo from same day with very nice winter light which all are rejected with "need more contrast"

1. contrast low oversharpened
https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141127_w1416577777.522img_2399-5.jpg

2.poor lighting conditions/more contrast needed, needs CCW rotation blurry soft contrast level
https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141126_s1416578313.4258img_2403-1.jpg

3. poor lighting conditions/more contrast needed grainy soft contrast
https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141126_t1416578107.7614img_2344-2.jpg

First one was already boosted in contrast for about 30, so if it still doesn't look good I'll drop it. Second one can be edited with more contrast, I think, not ruined by it but I wonder about blurry. I checked verticals also and they are vertical, so what about level? Third is already at the edge of too much contrast to my taste, but I wonder about grainy and soft, which parts are soft an where it grainy?

Hi,

1. YAK-42: I agree, to me it looks more close to oversharpend than soft, there are already some jaggies visible.
But quality looks not to be ideal for such a really large size.

2. Yakutia 757: In your other thread someone showed you the direction to go
https://www.airliners.net/uf/view.fil...5653&filename=1416184343iSyujv.jpg
Your edit still looks more like the front part.
-> whites are not white enough for a.net's taste.
I think it is a nice shot and would not drop it. The titles and the engines look marginally oversharpened.

3. Gulf: I think it is the same for the whites as above. The upper part of the tail looks instead blurry to me, although that is rather strange.

4. TU: I don't think light is that poor, it is a rather nice scene. Still it could be a bit brighter.

I did exactly what was advised - boosted contrast (even more, +30) but trouble is that nose part was already in the shadow when tail caught some sun rays...

1. Reject reason: high in frame, needs ccw rotation, blurry tail quality blurry dark centered level

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141129_d1416838686.7104img_3873-1.jpg

Does HIF mean that tail must be used in calculation? What about level - I was thinking that radar tower at the right is beacon and used it for leveling photo vertically. Is tail blurry? I can see some softness which is natural for wide shot. Is this photo mendable?

2. Reject reason: contrast low, too red and would be better smaller, no more than 1200 soft contrast colour

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141129_m1416775155.6829img_6228.jpg

Is it really too red? For me it seems more yellow and it's - I think - quite natural for low sun.

Re. No. 1, while the radar tower in the RH side of the image is vertical, I think in reality it should not be due to lens distortion. If you look at the vertical parts of the main landing gear however, it shows room for CCW rotation. I try to use verticals in the center of the image rather than the edges since the latter can be misaligned due to lens distortion especially on a wide angle shot like this. Regardless of the verticals, the image does look like it could use CCW rotation.
As for HIF, I get tripped up by this as well. I don't necessarily agree that it is HIF, but A.net judges it to include part of the tail. I think the guideline is if you place a 9 box grid on the image the aircraft must be reasonably balanced across the grid.
Can't comment on the blurriness of the tail since I am on a laptop and the monitor is not the best. But, it does not look blurry on this monitor.

Hope this helps!

As for the UTair, I certainly agree that the yellow lighting should be quite normal, but I believe it could do with more contrast and the titles could be sharpened slightly more.

Quoting jelpee (Reply 4):
but A.net judges it to include part of the tail

Why not? The tail is part of the aircraft, too. I know that some photographers center just by fuselage and ignore the tail, this may be okay for an A340-600 or a MD-80 but for a short aircraft like the A319/318 or a large tail like the A380 this looks unbalanced.

Take the VIM shot, if you draw a line at the highest point of the aircraft (tail) and another line at the lowest, there is just 1cm above the aircraft, and almost 7cm under the aircraft. So yes I agree with high in frame.

But unfortunately the upper part of the tail is blurry, so not worth working on I'd say.
Nice shot, otherwise!

The colour on the UT Air is debatable. For my taste it looks a bit too yellow (e.g. the tail).

Rejected with PM "Backlit" and Dark only reason.

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141203_e1417102252.2811img_3773-1.jpg

Worth any reworking or backlit images are prohibited at all? This question arises as I get rejection on this photo also:

https://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/6832/6154164.247/0_a49ee_88301740_orig

(but this one also have Quality Grainy Soft Overexposed Dark Contrast combo with PM: "image lacks contrast, poor lighting conditions/backlit" on the top   ) which was accepted at other three main spotting sites without questions.

PS: I also have this one definitely backlit image in DB:

Nobody here? OK, then I have another question.

This batch was rejected again:

1. (Another one from sequence) Reject reason: oversharpened dark
https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141204_z1417201960.1991img_2397-1.jpg

Is it really OS and what level of brightness is desired?

2. Reject reason: blurry soft oversharpened

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141204_l1417202291.0452img_2403-3.jpg

Soft and OS I can see, but is it really blurry (which I translate from Anet English as movement blur or OOF)?

3. Reject reason: Still noisy. Also dark grainy

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141205_i1417201534.7402img_2344-3.jpg

Where it noisy? It's painted in kind of "metallic" blue paint. Also what is the difference between noisy and grainy and again, what level of brightness is desired?

1. Reject reason: soft dark https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141208_o1417511521.8589img_3866-1.jpg

Is it really soft? Which parts? I'm afraid that it is close to OS. I also wonder why it's dark - body is white enough for me and sky is overcast in this direction. This plane taken about this direction 7 min earlier:

Well, I think the area between the outward engine and the winglet on both wings is oversharpened. Some other edges of the wings and the outline of the gear have jaggies as well.

Quality, grainy and soft I can edit by reducing photo to 1300px, but what about dark?

Is this any better?

You can try to lighten the underside of the Sukhoi by adjusting the mid tones in colour curves. I use photo shop elements, there is a button called enhance. From there I go to adjust colour and then to adjust colour curves. There you will find a button marked increase midtones, this should lighten the underside of the aircraft.

Need help from fellow photographers on this two pairs which was rejected first for soft and second times for OS.

1. . . .

First one was also blurry so I changed it to other from sequence. Which parts of second are visible OS?

2. . . .

For this two just soft - oversharpened. Which parts of second need attention?

PS: Please don't insist on downsizing, I feel that both can make it at this size. Or explain the reasons if I fll wrong.

The Yak-40 doesn't look too bad, I would try an appeal.

The Helo looks a bit too "smooth" as if there is excessive NR applied. If it's oversharpened, then it's marginal.

Appealed. No way: "Would probably be acceptable smaller, too big at 1500It is blurred and oversharp in attempt to correct. Might just be acceptable at 1024, far too big at 1500". You know it's not blurry. So I was right, no sense in appeal for images large than 1024...

One of the things that has changed over the years is that there are far more personals in screening and with appeals it is rare to not get one at all, yet some people are still not happy !

You have taken a photograph of a moving helicopter with a longish lens at a slow shutter speed and yet you submit it at 1500 wide (which is large) and are surprised that it is blurred. It is actually very difficult for them to not have some blur when you do that as movement of the subject is beyond your control. If the quality was good enough, it would have been accepted and many are accepted at above 1024, yes, even 1600 when the quality is good enough so you talk nonsense about not appealing if the image is above 1024. It is however important to know when to submit them at that size ! Another point is that appealing should not be the first course of action with every rejection - recheck the image first.

I think the personal was very much to the point, (after all I wrote it ) but I will remember and perhaps not bother in the future.

Mick, thanks for detailed and discreet answer. I don't overuse appeal function, last of all I have used it if I have soft or OS rejection - even if I don't agree, I prefer to reedit. This time Angad, whom I respect and who have a lot of photos in DB, and who also like big photo, said that he doesn't see them OS - both - and I decided to try, just in case. I was almost sure they will be rejected. May be my appeal ratio - less than 1 on every 40 uploads, or on every 20 accepted shots - can excuse me.

I know for sure also that both that shots are not blurry. Again, English is not my native language, so I assume that blurry means moved while exposed or out of focus. If I'm not right, please correct me (BTW, first shoot of copter is blurry, I uploaded it by mistake). I have access to originals which are more than 3000px wide, so I can see that both are not blurry in this means and both are in focus. Yes, some small letters are beyond resolution of the camera/lens but a lot of details are visible at 3000px. I agree, downsize to 1024 (even to 1200) will make this detail invisible, so picture will looks more simple and will be more easy to edit. But it's not an option for me, please understand.

I can agree however, that long distance, tele lens, slow shutter makes its difficult to make good shoot. But not impossible. And proof is that I have enough 1500px photos from this place in DB. Based on that, how can I understand this PM from screener: "You are too inconsistent for uploading at large sizes."?

I assume, that screening (I mean not function which prevent low quality photos to be accepted but reasons given for rejection) and screeners PM are here to help photographers to increase their skills, to show them directions in which to improve their photos. Again, between them are eliminable/recoverable (like soft, OS, dust spot, level, contrast, overexposed, dark etc.) and unrecoverable. Blurry is second (along with obstructing objects, wrong framing or double). So it's very disappointing to get photo rejected for dust spot, remove this spot and then get it rejected again for blurry!

So, may be I'm stupid or stubborn as a bear with balalika ram, but I want my photos to get accepted at large size and I want to use screeners comment (and forum help) to move in this direction. Am I wrong?

Thanks for listening.

Marry Christmas, dear spotters, photographers and screeners!

Got this two rejected today and need help on reediting:

1. Soft and OS.

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141224_r1418836205.7726img_8738-1.jpg

An-124 is soft, because of DOF. Kamov seems OK to me, not OS, but may be I'm wrong. I think there is no option to make Antonov sharper, but is it's softness too annoying to make this shot not worth submitting?

2. Soft.

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141224_u1418835986.0352img_9048-1.jpg

Which parts? Nose and vertical stabilizer, as well as gears and engine inlets seems OK for me. Farthest parts of wings?

And both was commented: "please stop uploading at high res, you have great stuff but the quality rarely supports these high res images, MAX 1200PX PLS "

Sorry, dear Screeners. My last 6 photos in DB are 1500 or 1600 and I think that at least T-50 is good enough for highres. So I will keep uploading if it is not breaking any rule.

You might annoy the screeners if you keep on uploading at 1500 or 1600PX. Try uploading as they say at 1200PX and see what happens. Most of mine I upload at 1200PX, the others from the eighties I upload at 1100PX. The screeners know what is best for every ones photos

They will be rejected with advice to reduce to 1024?   Really, I know that at 1200 it is more simple to pass, but some photos I want at highres only. T-50 can make it, I think.

So thank you far advice, but I really need answer on my questions.

It seems to me that you only want to hear what you want to hear and you will keep taking advice until someone agrees with you. I suggest that you should be ready for a long wait.

I have helped a lot of people and you remind me of one who could not get images accepted because he increased the saturation so high that they were rejected. When I started to help him he said he liked them like that but I pointed out that he would not get them accepted that way. He reduced the saturation and now has a high acceptance rate.

You have had the advice on this forum and from many Screeners to submit them at 1200 - I have not seen anyone say 1024, but you do not want to listen to that sound advice. Submit yours at 1200 and I am sure that you will soon have a high acceptance rate too !

I have more images on the site than anyone else and I don't think any are above 1200, some are at 1024 - does that not say something in itself ?

Merry Christmas

I doesn't run for high acceptance ratio/lot of my photo at Anet. There is two other big airplane photo sites and I have high ratio and a lot of photo at them (not least because one of them doesn't accept more than 1200px   ). But I want my Anet photo be highres and I has succeeded in it till now (at least with half of them).

Quoting dendrobatid (Reply 31):

I don't have a lot of photo at my personal archive at all, I can shoot at very small amount of places, I can't spend a lot of time shooting (work, distance, climate, access etc.) but I don't mind to work in PS a lot (I used working as prepress designer some long times ago). So I think there is some difference and it's not bad for Anet (if not take in account some additional workload at screeners, but I flatter myself that I upload interesting photos lately, not just common traffic).

So back to my questions, I will be very grateful for everybody who can spend some time explain me what can be improved in my photos (as for example for T-50 may be like "wingtips are soft, tails are OS, tarmac is grainy, underbody too dark, needs some CW etc.") as I tried to do for other photographers in this forum. And I do listen for argumented advice on downsizing and sometimes accept them or sometimes just drop such shoots at all.

Thanks in advance.

Rejected for soft in shadows (3d also for dark). I think that there is may be some overbust in shadows pushing? Also underbody looks bit noisy, so sharpen it brings grainy rejection?

1. Soft https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141229_d1419364759.8284img_5850-1.jpg

2. Soft https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141229_z1419364682.3745img_5868-1.jpg

3. Soft dark https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141229_t1419364472.3146img_5783-1.jpg

4. Soft with PM soft/blurry in shadows, most likely from too much denoising https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20141229_x1419364901.3993img_5839alex8conflictedcopy2014-07-06174451.jpg

Need some side view here. Rejected for level (PM: "counter clockwise rotation needed") and lost appeal with "screener right".

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/APPEAL_20141230_h1419501317.0519img_9228-5.jpg

I checked level by roof of hangar (under left wing) and also checked with accepted one, with same Ruslan parking at same place:

As this arguments seems makes no impression on screeners, how I'll find reference to level the image?

Different focal lengths cause different kinds of distortion/compression. If these were two shots at identical focal lengths and identical framing, you would have had better luck.

I think just give it 0.1 deg of CCW and try again. It does "feel" a bit off even if it is technically level.

But they are! Still... OK, let's us not trying to mount dead horse.

Another question, did you think it's worth resubmitting if I have #2 from Reply #28 in queue? It's same T-50 same day (taxiing to TO instead of taxiing after landing but it seems not much difference concerning double rule). Can't decide which one is better for DB.

1. Rejected with: heat haze affecting quality, needs CCW rotation

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20150102_l1419770393.0004img_8102-2.jpg

CCW I can see, but what heat haze screener mean? The only one I can see (exhaust) doesn't affect copter. It's also quite cold and no direct sun.

2. Too much empty space motiv

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20150105_x1420060894.4146img_7419.jpg

Is this worth appealing with explanation about composition?

Although a very nice photo, in my opinion, the condensation trails are not strong enough to justify crop to a.net. I wouldn't appeal.

This one now rejected for composition:

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20150105_a1420112559.7495img_9228-7.jpg

Reject reason: LIF and soft to me. Entire upper fuselage is soft. Why place it at that level? Could still include the An-124 even if T-50 is centered.

Does it worth to reedit again (soft) as is, or change composition (I can crop tighter left and top to make T-50 be really centered)?

BTW, accepted at 1500px  Wink

Sorry, but I don't get it. It was rejected for "composition" and you argue that it should have been better rejected for being soft and Low in Frame?!

I don't want to be offensive, I just want to understand it, why do you upload the shot if you think it should be rejected?
If i think a shot of mine is soft, I'll sharpen it more...before it gets screened.

Speaking of the composition...as the wings of the AN-124 are already partly cut, you could just crop out the right engine as well.

I don't see heat haze but quality looks a bit iffy. Might want to tone down NR a bit. Of course, safest option is to downsize to 1400px or 1200px but...

Yes, if that was the only reason.

Soft is correct. Composition is fine. I would have actually included the whole the An-124 (incl tailfin) to make it seem even more physically imposing in comparison to the T-50.

Alas, framing doesn't allow this.

Sorry man, this was a misunderstanding. I thought this was your comment. Now I get it, forget what I said before... 

I got that a bit wrong!

#3 seems to do it for me; the two combined aircraft are in the center of the frame and there's equal empty space in front and behind the jet fighter.

Last one looks best. Might have to downsize significantly when you upload, though, because now it's a pretty hefty crop.

Original is still more than 4100px wide. What do you think about needs for CCW?
