Post Screening - A Lot Of Things

Mon Apr 06, 2015 4:45 pm

So, I've been in a rut with rejections, about twenty in a row now and can't get a break with any of these photos. I've fixed what they said was wrong and bam four more rejection reasons.

Anyhow, I got this one rejected for Quality, Blurry, Motive and Oversharp. This is also my first attempt at a Portrait photo like this.

This one was rejected for Quality, Oversharp and Blurry. I do not see where it is blurry.

Thanks for the help

I'm at work right now so can;t really judge quality and sharpness, but the portrait crop really doesn't work because the door/airstair is open, and it has been cropped off. If the door were closed it would probably work.

The H-stab cutoff also doesn't work for me, and the slight angle bothers me. Might have looked better balanced from directly in front.

It doesn't look blurry to me, but quality isn't great.

Also doesn't look blurry. Does look soft toward the nose - maybe DOF?

Thanks, Yeah I had my aperture at f8.0 so that may have been the issue.

I agree with vikkyvik about the angle for the first image. Its off-balance and that disturbs my "eye".

Both shots look soft/blurry and heavily sharpened to compensate. Did you have focusing issues that day? (assuming they're from the same day as the light/background seems similar)

Cheers

I don't believe I had any issues. I was using my Sigma 150-500 and had the OS on 1 and camera on the stationary focus.

No it wan't taken on the same day but around the same time.

How far away were you from the aircraft?

I was less than 100ft from the plane.

Ah. DOF could certainly be your issue. For a Canon 1.6x crop camera at F8 and a subject at 100 ft, your DOF ranges from infinite at 50mm to 3.65 ft at 500mm.

Nikon 1.5x crop and any full-frame will have lesser DOF for the same field of view.
