A photographer can look for another location with something else than just grey sky as background, maybe taxi shots.

    So, yeah, I would welcome more rejections for photos of dull looking aircraft with light grey background.
    I remember that I wrote the same in an other thread some months ago

    It happened to me personally and that's very disappointing.
    Therefore I don't think such photos should be rejected out of hand. Just my two cents...
    This already happened to me that I booked a week for spotting at NYC but the weather was just terrible. Instead of going out for spotting I kept my equipment in the bag and drove somewhere else for sightseeing. There are always other possibilities
    I just hate to edit pictures which were made under bad conditions and don't like to see them on JP too.

    Add a new kind of rejection reason for pics made during bad weather or without sunlight during the day and the queue will drop. Personally I am not a fan of dark aircrafts with a grey background. Just my two cents...

    Yeah we don't want to take that road which would get us the famous "no sun on aircraft" ridiculous rejection reason that is used in some other places. we actually added the following sentence on the upload guideline.
    "Please note that photos taken in bad weather conditions are likely to be rejected for contrast reasons, unless the weather aspect adds something to the photo. Just like on this photo where the bad weather isn't adding anything to the photo"

    But thanks for the suggestion, really not a big fan of those grey weather shot either

    regards

    Currently around 13 till 16 days in queue is very long time. I mean I never had a quality rejection as far as I can remember.

    But I would also happy to see the queue more down maybe to have it at max around 7 days. If these „quality“ rejections causing the problems I would also happy to see maybe a kind of prescreening or something like that.
    But I sadly have no idea how to do that on a way where no one gets wrong rejections etc.

    Or maybe a picture that is 1200×800 px the size needs to be at least 500kb (just an example) ?
    Cheers Bjorn
    Bjorn,
    I don't think this is a correct indication.
    Cheers,
    Erez.

    Hi Alex,

    Maybe one idea which maybe could help. Is it possible to do a sort of quality check while loading the uploaded picture ? A check done by the website when the image is loaded but not added to the queue ?

    Or maybe a picture that is 1200×800 px the size needs to be at least 500kb (just an example) ?

    Cheers Bjorn

    QUALITY Rejections

    Hi,
    As you have noticed, the queue has grown again. Sure lots of screeners are on vacations, me included but there's one thing you need to know.

    Lately, we have never seen such a high level of quality votes. Recently we would really rarely use that rejection reason because there was no reason to do so but today.... I would say that 1 out of 15/20 pics gets an instant quality rejection. With a queue at 18000+ that makes a ton of low quality shot.
    We fully understand that it's never easy to start a new hobby or start uploading, editing and so on but... if you read our upload guideline and learn some just basic photography and editing quality rejection should NEVER happen.

    So yeah we're sorry if you got your whole queue deleted or got quality rejections but please realize that filling the queue with very low quality shots is really not helping the site or the community so we would like to ask something.

    If you just started uploading to JP, DON'T UPLOAD if you didn't read the upload guideline. After reading it, use the forum, ask for advices and only upload a few pics. Just by doing that you would help us and the community a lot and you would very quickly improve your photography and editing skills.

    thanks in advance and happy spotting !

    Alex
