Rejection Motive.

Mon Mar 30, 2015 10:22 pm

I have this motive rejection. I would like why this picture is motive rejection. I show a scene of maintenance before flight. Siceresly I don´t understand.

It probably has to do with the ladder attached to the cockpit. That said I don't see anything wrong with the image, I like it a lot.

Also, did you submit this as a bigger than 1200 pixel image? In my experience they don't like that at all - probably has to do with bandwidth costs. A.net upsizes images for display on the fly, maybe to keep costs down. I just got a rejection that I will be posting here shortly. Rejection reason was "over sharpened" and it was a 1600 pixel image. Been getting a lot of those lately because I'm not submitting anything that is not over the top sharp in the original raw image. Your image is very sharp too.

My website, I would post it without hesitation.

Best,

JASPC

Thanks JASPC.

I have only rejection motive. I has a first rejection of this picture motive, but it was "Unbalanced crop", and I have reedited with crop balanced. Now again I have rejection motive but I don´t know what is the reason this time.
Ladder attached to cockpit or ground crew working around aicraft is not rejection motive, usually, with screener here nothing is sure in all (with all respect to screener work).

I think it's ladder and hose (blocking left gear). But photo seems good to me. I'd appeal and ask for explanations.

This type of shot is definitely acceptable.

The ladder should not be an issue - it's a parked a/c undergoing some sort of work, the ladder is there presumably to provide access for the work being performed. If there are no problems with men at work on a/c (and the pictures I've linked demonstrates there isn't) then, within reason, there should be no problem with objects cluttering the frame, provided they're have a purpose (again, demonstrated by the shots above).

The F-22 doesn't look too grainy, but it is certainly soft and dark (though not by very much). The light is not helping. Just increase exposure a tiny bit, add a kick of contrast and sharpening and should look much tidier. And don't forget an extra helping of NR after the exposure/contrast adjustments.

The Learjet on the other hand doesn't look soft, but certainly grainy (belly and shadow areas) and dark again because of the lighting.

Thanks Angad. I will follow your advise. Really is difficult for me understand dark rejection in both pictures. No all pictures can be perfect sky blue backkground . Sure I can see pictures much darker in db and similar light conditiona (pictures of me too). But I guess and understahd every picture is one new different world.

Only I hope no get overexposed rejection when I add a bit light.

I have this rejection. Only level rejection and presonal "CCW rotation require"

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...08_f1433176301.5586150530-3675.jpg

I used to reference background horizon and vertical lines of background fence. I think level is correct. Vertical lines leveled is always first reference.

I would like opinion before I reedit with CCV rotation I think is unnecessary and incorrect. ¿Can the screeners say me the reference he used?

On the picture of the C130 needs some CCW rotation. If you look at the flag pole near the blue tent, it is not horizontal. Use the flag pole as a reference point to make the picture level. It only needs a slight adjustment to make this level. Always try and use if you can a reference point towards the middle of the image such as building and use the edge to level off the image.

Thanks to advise Steve. But used flag pole is no acceptable. This is flexible and wind make it unlevel . I dude screener used this reference to reject this picture when there is multiples vertical lines in the fence background all correct leveled and no flexible. And vertical lines of tent are leveled also. I suspect screener used some horizontal line to reference Ignoring the first rule of vertical lines. But this is only my opinion.

Hola,

check the screen shot I made and look at the lower horizontal line. There is more space on the right side between the line and the horizon.

That way it does look indeed to need some slight CCW (0,4°), as the horizon is not even. Click on the image to enlarge it (otherwise it is hardly visible I know)

http://i18.servimg.com/u/f18/18/48/69/52/unbena11.jpg

Normally a horizon that is clearly visible and doesnt suffer any distortion (like in your case) should beat any vertical upon levelling. At least that's how I learned it from a former headscreener.

Thanks Julien i apreciate you work and picture to help me but...

Level horizon with guide no always work to some screener. more if the right side is obstruct and is not clearly visible. Horizon also is irregular.

My last level rejection I appealed and headscreener say me "Verticals must be leveled in the center of image". I think this is the case. All vertical lines are correct in fence and blue tent.

Another sample of my confused what is the level correct.

First rejection. Level rejection need CW rotation.

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...03_k1432837624.3457150528-0069.jpg

Second rejection. Level rejection need CCW rotation.

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...10_f1433368607.4288150528-0069.jpg

Well somepeople can say me what is the correct level. What reference I can use here. I am really confused.

I know we are in summer. Season to massive rejections. But I dont understand some criteries.

You went to far with the rotation. Try to take out half of the CW rotation you give to the second version. Its also looks a little overexposed.

Whats the difference between screening in winter and summer? I can just think about heat haze being more frequent...

Again level rejection "CW rotation need". I appealed. Again rejection CW. And soft rejection added. No problem in soft rejection. Is easy to repair it.

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...617_h1433975117.405150528-0069.jpg

I'm really desperate with this picture. I tried to level with all vertical references and possible horizon. It seems nothing works here.
I would appreciate any advice on which is the correct reference to the correct level. Specially from some screener or headscreener.

Does look like it needs CW.

Your second shot was close to perfect on leveling, just needs a little more help. With a shot like this, the leveling (and judging the correct level) is always difficult, both as a screener and a photographer. Don't get disheartened.

Well Angad thanks. But what reference (line) you think is correct? That is the help I need.
Do I understand that I have to insist and I continue trying to receive rejections to be lucky to find screener a to match in agreeing to my reference? I see here that different screener have different opinion and it is inconsitency (with all respect). Specially with this rule is clearly; horizon leveled first reference and in default; centered vertical lines. The last is no posible here. I don´t understand because horizon leveled no work here to screeners or headscreeners.

There doesn't seem to be a reliable reference. Maybe the building in the background?

Leveling is usually done "by feel" during editing and certainly judged by what "looks right" during screening.

Bustin,

I think the reference point is the green gate in the background. I also think you appealed the wrong shot.

To me, the first rejection is correct. This can be verified by putting horizontal and vertical guides on the gate. (as I am sure you have done).

However, you fixed those problems in the second shot. The top of the gate now looks 100% level, as does the side of the thick gatepost; it’s not "out" by even a single pixel as far as I can see.

I think the rejection was wrong and this is the shot you should have appealed.

The third image has the same flaw as the first one, so I’m not surprised it failed.

Hi.

I have this overexposed rejection with personal "Backlit". I don´t know what is overexposed here and, of course, how is backlit. I can see pictures accepted without problems in database with clear and horrible backlit.

I have pictures accepted same day, same light conditions and similar "backlit". This look how another "subjetive" rejection.
https://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...me=j1435251579.1488150530-0047.jpg

I have say I has a first rejection of this picture by dark-soft. I added exposisition and now only overexposed. I show the two rejection to match.

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...24_y1434557391.5228150530-0047.jpg

I am thinking to appeal but before I would like some opinion. Look very hard rejection.

I prefer the brighter version. While it's not technically overexposed, we all know how the overexposed rejections works on a.net, it's often used to mean "too bright overall" or "whites are a bit hot"

Also, while the light is absolutely borderline (I wouldn't even bother shooting in such light) there is no question on backlit. The only question is whether this is acceptable, and judging by many examples, I think it should be.

Countless photos accepted in database with same lighting conditions or worse. Here see photos accept the same day with the same lighting conditions.

*sig....Appealed and rejected.

Reply of headscreener "screen correct".

Unfortunately I think this rejection there is some inconsistency suffering screener process here. But so I have to accept it again.
But as someone wrote on this forum time ago, "It's hard to reach a constantly moving target" and critera change from screeners other every day.
I understand that the work of screeners is subjetive and difficult to achieve standards. So as always I mention, there is not criticism of the screeners here. But sometimes, it's very frustrating to understand some rejections. Especially when it comes to the headscreeners. I wish there were more unified criteria in the process of screener.

Thanks to all to yours advise.

As was said elsewhere, dark could mean backlit or in this case "top lit" as the light is high from the top, making the top very bright and the sides less bright hence the dark. Proof again that side-lit shots rule here.
