    I want to ask advice on this pic, it was shot thru a fence, I think the crop eliminates the fence completely but would like a second opinion. (fence is on the right edge of the pic)
    Should be fine.

    But on the "Add Photo" page it says I can upload images up to 1920px wide. Can I actually submit 1920px wide photos or should I stick with 1600?
    If the system allows you to upload 1920, go for it. Just be aware acceptance rates for 1920 images are much lower, so don't be surprised if you start getting more rejections.

      Hi, I have a question about the "Photo date" for uploaded pics.

      For these 3 pictures:
      https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9787148
      https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9787784
      https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9791959

      I actually shot them on Jul 5th and I guess I did not export with the EXIF data and somehow they got tagged to Jun 21st.

      Is there any way I can fix this? (like reuploading with EXIF?)

      Thanks!

        Hi,

        I'm back with a few more questions!

        1.
        Regarding this reject: https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8299566
        I'm a bit lost as of what I should do with this picture. I think it looks rather good. Is it possible to be considered a passable "night shot" photo? Since it is shot near sunset and I did not select that when uploading. If so, should I appeal for it?

        Also, I adjusted the brightness of the pic as well. Does this look better?

        Secondly, I recently shot at many new locations and have some questions regarding the crop of the following pics:

        These are at an angle where I have to crop one of the wings but can save the entire other wing. Would this be a reasonable crop? ( I didn't capture the entire left wing in the original pic, does this mean that the picture is basically useless?)

        Also, if the answer to the above question is that I have to crop both wings, does this count? It looks horrifying to me.


        Thanks again for your time.

          Thanks again for your time.
          On number one, regarding the rejected one, if you equalize it you will notice halos around the engines and wings. Nothing serious, though. I'd say the re-edit looks good. You can put on screener's comments that you are selecting night shot category if you wish.

          On number two and three, they look good, just check for highlights on histogram, to avoid overexposed areas

          Number four, if would fall as cutoff for the winglet. Try leaving the entire winglet and part of the left wing fairing. You can post it here

            The LH A359 shows slightly signs of shadows/highlights extra use, too. Careful with those tools

              Thanks for the reply!

              Yeah I learnt my lesson with those tools. I only use the shadow + black/white sliders now since the slightest highlight adjustment creates halos.

              I reduced contrast a bit as well to alleviate the halos. Does this look good?

                Borderline for (low) contrast.

                  Hi, can I get some help on the following 5 pics?

                  1&2: sunset shots of the etihad dreamliner, I am not sure about my processing since the yellow color on yellow plane looks weird to me once I bump up the contrast. If these look bad please let me know how I can fix them.

                  3,4,5:

                  I'm not sure if they are good photos to upload. These are taken when the sun is completely gone and no direct sunlight. Would these qualify as night shots? If so, could you pre-screen them?

                    1-2: Great ones, check as usual for dust spots

                    3-Soft towards nose

                    4-5Looks good. Is that FLL? Check for horizon references just in case since they are unleveled with the terminal building

                      Got it, thank you! These are taken at MDW.

                        Hi, I have a question regarding this reject:

                        https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8343253

                        I think by looking at the equalized version there's no doubt that it doesn't look good. But I did not add any vignetting or shadows during post-processing, especially if you look at the shape of the "vignette" and the light on the wings. I have no idea why but I guess this is what the light actually looked like during that time. And I don't think it is noticeable on the original picture.

                        Any chance I can fix this? Or should I just crop in? I really liked this picture

                        Thanks!

                          It's vignetting from your lens. Relatively open aperture and long focal length often combine to produce such results.
