  • Photo Rejections

    Hoping I can get some advice and clarification as to the reasons why all of a recent batch of uploaded photos have been rejected.

    I have been contributing photos here for more than ten years and recently I have been having a lot of rejections and as far as I can tell I am not doing anything differently. Maybe its my Interpretation of the upload guidelines, but before I simply stop uploading anymore, like many of my friends and previous long term contributors have done I wanted to get some clarification.

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8436441 : please can you tell me where the Cmos is in this photo as I have looked at it three times in photoshop and at least twice using the upload tools and I still can't see it. I accept its possible that I am simply just missing it.

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8435088 : Is this too much or too little contrast, always find this rejection reason a minefield, I would assume its too little, but just wanted to clarify. Personally I have always felt that there should be a separate rejection category for each (not so much for me but for new contributors),

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8438950 : assuming this one is a little high in the frame, but due to the angle if I leave more space at the top the aircraft looks low in the frame. Again happy to accept I am probably wrong with this one.

    Lastly the below two

    In both cases these were rejected for under-exposed, however if I increase the exposer the top of the aircraft will be overexposed, is this an exposure issue with the mid tones or is it simply because the underside of the aircraft is dark.


    The other rejection I would have asked about, but now looking at it again on a full screen I now 100% agree with.


    Please keep in mind the main reason I am asking is because I don't want to waste either my time or the screeners time.

    In the top left corner is at least one smaller or bigger dustspot as far as I can tell

        Actually all reasons for rejects are accurate, but I completely do not agree with the rejection of Malaysia A350, try to appeal for that one

          Very poor contrast due to the overcast conditions. Not fixable.

          Just a bit too high in the frame.

          More of an issue with the contrast being too harsh than being underexposed; increasing the exposure to lift the shadows will likely result in some parts of image then becoming overexposed. If you want to try to improve them, boost the shadows without increasing the overall exposure, or at least on the areas with highlights that are nearly clipped.

            Hi Dlowwa

            Thank you for taking the time to come back to me, I appreciate the feedback on the above rejections and the time taken as I know you are all very busy.

            I have decided for now to take a break from uploading because just lately I have been finding I am not enjoying the hobby as much and I think a part of that is because I have been getting a lot of rejections lately. I appreciate that you and the other screeners need to maintain a level of quality on this site and I think time away will be beneficial to me anyways.
            I may start to upload again in the future.

            I have learned a lot from both other contributors and the screeners here and my photography and editing skills have benefitted from this, so thank you for this.
