    A touch soft, but would be ok for me.

      Thank you. Could I get your opinion on this image? the angle is unusual, but I'm not sure if that alone would be enough for it to be accepted.

        The reason this angle is unusual (i.e. not too many images like this on the DB) is because 1) it is aesthetically not very pleasing for most, and 2) even if you think it an attractive angle, it is difficult to get it with good light. As such, while this image wouldn't be rejected for being unappealing aesthetically (my personal view), it would almost certainly be rejected for contrast.

          Thanks for the advice and yes, it's pretty much what I was expecting. And just because I like a shot that doesn't guarantee the screeners will - and that's fine with me.

          Can I get an opinion this Embraer, and on another A380?

            1) OK
            2) borderline dark

              I've had numerous attempts at photographing this B206, all have been rejected - not helped by getting the shots at midday (and the aircraft being silver!). I had another attempt today, later in the afternoon with the sun at a lower angle. I intend to submit one image only, would any of these meet the requirements?

                We generally don't pre-screen similar images, so please pick the one you'd like to go with for more specific feedback.

                    Remove the dust spots, brighten it a bit, and place it slightly higher in the frame.

                      Thanks for the advice.

                      Can I get some advice on these 'dusk' shots taken at high ISO? would either of the two shots below qualify on quality grounds, or would the added noise of high ISO make them immediate rejections?

                      Is there an overall policy regarding high ISO images on JP?

                      I deliberately kept the post-processing - particularly sharpening and NR - to the least I could.

                        Noise is not an issue on either, but both are too dark, especially the second.

                          Thank you, I've adjusted exposure on both. How do they look now?

                            Still much too dark.

                              Thank for the ongoing advice on these. I've upped the exposure on both, how do they look now?

                                First borderline for contrast, second certainly a contrast rejection. Will not comment on these any more.
