Post-screening

Thu Mar 24, 2016 12:23 pm

Hi all,

I recently have a few shots that got rejected, and I feel that some are questionable:

These 3 were all rejected for "blurry" and "soft":

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20160320_s1457795639.5872dsc_7181-3.jpg

I can't really see where are the blurry parts; I've taken a look at the originals and I could've swore they weren't blurry.

Any thoughts?

JetStar feels overall softish for me.
Quantas - can't see any flaws in it at all
Air Asia - tail seems very soft and at the same time rest feels at the edge of OS.

All three feels bit darkish in midtones and shadows for me.

Thanks Alex. I'll try to appeal the Qantas.

Hot off the rejection line for "colour":

Shouldn't the sunset lighting be a little reddish, especially in the later stages? At least that's what the conditions were when I shot this picture.

I see your point, but I still think that the yellow cast caused the rejection.

My bad, should have mentioned that it came with a PM stating "reddish cast". I was half-expecting a yellow cast rejection as well, but the reddish rejection really surprised me...

I recently appealed "color cast" rejection (Reply #61) with explanation about light conditions. Color cast reason was removed (needles to mention that bunch of others was added).

Your appeal was processed - images closer to sunset should have some colour cast so it was accepted.

Jetstar looks soft but not blurry, and maybe a bit dark.
Qantas looks maybe a bit soft.
Air Asia does look blurry.

Jetstar soft and dark. I've had brighter images rejected for being dark.
Qantas: Level. CW rotation needed. Look at that sign for 303 and the verticals on the building in the background.
Air Asia: slight blur... probably will be okay at 1024.

Congrats on the Singapore picture. Looks like it is in the top 5.

Jetstar: Does look soft and blurryish. The blurryish shows most at the front half of the plane & titles
Qantas: Softish windowline/titles
AirAsia: Agree on blurry

Thanks all! Upon taking a closer look at the JQ 787 original, I realized the front was a little heat hazed. I still can't really see the blur on the Airasia, but I guess I'll drop it due to the consensus here.

More rejections, this one for motive only with no PM:

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20160329_c1458482626.7729dsc_9546-3.jpg

Not too sure where's the motive issue?

Rejected for "grainy", taken on the same day as the SQ A350 above:

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20160329_a1458469983.6883dsc_9396-3.jpg

I don't see much grain...

   The only thing I can think of is lensflare (between nose and main gear there are some spots, plus the length of the 'normal' flares), but other than that I don't know. You can always appeal if you want to know. Perhaps it was a wrongly ticked box. It's a little sharp though.

Grain not so much. But it does have a 'blurry and oversharpened to compensate' feel to it.

Are you talking about those red and white streaks of light from the beacon and gear light? If that's so, I never really had a problem with them around a month ago:

I guess I'll wait for more input; hopefully the screener who rejected this shot can provide some insight.

I would call the CX photo overexposed. The nose gear light is just so bright with such large lens flare over the nose of the aircraft, that it is really distracting.

KLM not grainy.
Cathay: Agree with Vik verbatim on that. Cool shot, but that nose light really drowns it out.

I guess I'll drop the CX shot. A pity, my first time trying out f/1.8 night photography instead of the usual panning at the spot.

A little off topic here, but are these similar shots acceptable? I took these as the pilots were in the process of turning off the gear lights, thus the lights were dimmer.
