    Ok, thanks. Can I get a pre-screen on the following two next?
    1. compression, oversharpened
    2. backlit

    It would not.

    Almost certainly.



    As I mentioned above, more pixels, and less cropping.



    Overprocessed due to editing halos, which have nothing to do with sharpening/NR. More likely related to some brightness/shadows/contrast settings.



    Would be rejected for soft, contrast, compression, and dirty.
    Unfortunately, I think I'm out of luck with these. I have a Rebel XTI that has 10MP and from what I understand, it's on the low end of cameras. Sounds like upgrading the lens to be within the focal length limitations would be a more versatile, valuable upgrade than spending more time editing/processing or buying a new camera body.

I've attached the original Asiana photo here and you can see the level of cropping I've had to do to try and get it within the JP requirements.

    Almost certainly.

    3. I only manipulated the sharpening and noise reduction sliders in order to deal with the softness. I found that the "Asiana Airlines" logo (as an example) would come out nice and clear, but then I couldn't get "Kumho Asiana Group" or "HL8361" to come out clear. Is the overprocessed nature of the photo coming from these settings you think?

    I'm thinking that mostly due to #1, I'm not going to be able to salvage these without major photoshopping. I am adding one other shot (KAL attached) to see if it would be acceptable to you for JP upload:

    1. Is the limitation that I experience with being at the upper limit of my zoom lens for a distanced shot like this cause for the compression and the softness? (I'm sure that my technique is impacting it as well.... since I went on continuous shooting mode, took ~30 photos of each aircraft and still could only pick out 1-2 that I thought would be acceptable for JP)
    2. Is there any way to correct the compression on shots like this?

    edit: dlowwa or Julian S. Could I request either of you pre-screen a few photos for me?

    Ah, that's too bad. Before I go ahead and give up on these, can I ask you to take a look at one more? This one comparatively seemed much brighter and looked like you could make out the outline of the aircraft much better. Not sure if it would still be unacceptable though.
    Would be rejected for dark, contrast, soft, and noise.

    Aesthetics, mostly. Same reason soft/blurry images are not desirable, nor poorly cropped ones. In some cases you can't see the aircraft/liveries as clearly with poor contrast, but mostly because better light is nicer, and clouds are never permanent so we typically don't need to wait long to get a photo in decent light.

    Can you guys take a look and provide some feedback/pre-screen the following photos?

    1. Wondering if the cloudiness makes these impossible for upload?
    2. The 787 image that has the tree branches in it - is this acceptable for upload?
    3. I've played a little with exposure/contrast sliders just because of the way the images came out from the weather conditions - is it overprocessed or is it acceptable?
