    Hello everyone,

    one question about a picture rejected for "Horizon unlevel", including a comment from the screener "Need cw rotation".
    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=9352117

    I appreciate the comment about the cw rotation, but I wonder if there's any object in this picture to which I can align the horizon, in particular with cw rotation.

    There are no vertical objects in the picture (except the pink object bottom right, which is not really vertical because it's a wingtip from an aircraft on the gate).
    Horizontally I could align the picure to the edge of taxiway and grass, but this would require ccw rotation... thanks for any hint.

    I don't really see anything that tells me the horizon is unlevel, so it would have been ok for me.

    this picture was rejected for "Part of aircraft cut off". Obviously this is true as I cropped it that way:

    Is there any hint how to improve the crop here (except using the entire airplane)? Or is this just a crop-is-subjective-maybe-youre-lucky-maybe-not-situation?

    Generally, cutting the aircraft in half is frowned upon. Either crop tighter, or wider.

    the picture below was rejected due to "Cropping / Photo edges / Size Ratio".

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8555014

    I'd be very happy about some opinion, what exactly caused the rejection. Size ratio is 1280x720, so 16:9. Cropping/Centering looks (at least to me) OK, edges as well... not sure whether I missed something.

    Thanks for any help.

    There is some question as to whether the image was re-sized correctly. Easy enough to check if you have the original file. You can send it to me privately, and I will check. If it's all good, I will add it to the DB.

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8535617

    I can deal with the soft and noise with some re-editing and scaling down to maybe 1600 or 1280 px.

    However, I'm not quite sure what caused the Composition and especially the Backlit rejections. Maybe someone can give some advice, how to improve the composition and share a second opinion about the backlit. If this is indisputable backlit, I won't work on it anymore, but I felt the fuselage (which has backlit) would not be relevant for this picture composition as it's a front shot of the aircraft.

    Thanks for your advice and best,

    Composition because there's a lot of empty space at the bottom of the frame. Technically backlit, yes, but not really a reason for rejection at this angle, imho.

    It would also be great, if you fixed many dust spots that I can see.

    I have one question about the possible cause for what looks like a weird artefact or so in the "check for dust tool" with one of my pictures.
    Below the outcome from JP's "check for dust tool" and the original picture, which I meanwhile removed from the cue (due to this artefact and also too much halos).

    What looks weird to me is the sudden change in color in the right part of the upper part of the picture in the "check for dust tool". Does anyone have an idea, what might cause this?
    And would this cause a rejection (provided rest of the picture was OK)?

    Thanks and best,

    To avoid such a halos try not to touch the following things when editing: Highlights (keep it at 0), Clarity (at 0 as well)

    Could be several things, like selective noise reduction of the sky and later sharpening of the whole photo, or (automatic) correction of colour or contrast. It does not look that bad to me, to me it looks acceptable.

    I changed some parameters on the processing / editing. This is the result with the same pictures and I kindly ask for some pre-screening for those. Thanks a million!

    Slightly soft and low in the frame, but otherwise should be ok.

    Yes, halos and weak contrast are both due to whatever processing you're doing. If you change that, your problems should hopefully be resolved.

    I kindly ask for some editing advice:

    Over the last few weeks I got a couple of pictures of the same type rejected either due to Over Processed / Bad postprocessing or Contrast or both.
    Basically most of them are taken in front of a blue sky with good light conditions. Three recent examples are linked below.

    I didn't change my editing and as such I'm not really sure how to approach this. For the pictures below I can see some slight halos in terms of overprocessing. But I feel I got multiple pictures with such slight halos accepted in the past (maybe I was lucky then?). Also in terms of contrast the pictures have good light, no overcast, histogram (to me at least) looks good. But maybe I'm also completely misjudging the pictures...

    So as you see I feel that I'm doing something systematically wrong with the editing of such pictures, but not quite sure how to approach this. So I'm happy about any practical advise what I can improve here.

    Thanks and best,
    marfi80
