    Do you think either of these would be acceptable? I fear the A320 may be a little on the soft side?
    1. soft, contrast
    2. dark, contrast

    The latter.

    Sorry for the mass request. Will keep it reasonable going forward.

    My question on camera settings was about the contrast. I do struggle with the backlit rejection on this MAX shot because the sun is probably at 1-2 o'clock from the cockpit. At the same time, I can see how that sun position would also create a backlit condition.

    The contrast rejection is the one I'm curious about. Is it tied to one of my camera settings and how much light I've let through the glass or is it moreso tied to the conditions of the day/environment?

    I shot this at 1/125, f/8, ISO 100. Is it just the way the sun is coming onto the aircraft? Or is it more my camera settings you think?

    Can I ask for a screen on the following?
    Yes, but please read here (#3) and in the future keep your requests to a maximum 5 per 24-hour period.

    1. soft, heat haze, overprocessed, compression, dirty
    2. borderline soft
    3. soft/blurry, heat haze, noise
    4-5. soft, dark, overprocessed, compression, dirty

    Likely only 2. is salvageable.

    Can I ask for a screen on the following?

    1. Asiana A350 - I know this was posted before for a pre-screen and it was back when I was fighting the compression issues. Just curious if it's better now?
    2. Atlas B767F
    3. United B757
    4. United B737
    5. KLM A333 - Trying a different shot that has more of a clear sky in the background. Thoughts?

    Sorry if the mass-pre-screen request is overkill. Very eager to try and hone in my shots for my next outing this weekend.

    I increased the sensitivity of dust visualization and it looks like I may have missed a couple spots. Also increase the contrast slider to try and bring out the blue in the sky a bit more. Does this get me closer to acceptable?

    dlowwa that helps - I'll go work on that some more and refine my lightroom skills on it.

    In the meantime, do you think these 3 would be acceptable for upload? (I'm a bit concerned with the clouds)

    Contrast is very washed out, due to the haze between you and the aircraft. It's possible adjusting the curves might lead to an acceptable result, but as it is now, it would certainly be a rejection.

    When you say the contrast is poor, does that mean that there is not enough of it? Is it a matter of the greens of the trees need to be "greener" and the airplane itself needs to be "brighter" (more whites, blues)? Any suggestions on how to improve it enough so that it is worth uploading?

    1. contrast still quite poor
    2. yes backlit. not worth spending any more time/effort on.

    I know this next one (Alaska 737) is not a pre-screen, but wanted to get some thoughts. It got rejected for too much/too little contrast and for being backlit. The sun is shining from the nose-side of the plane so I didn't think it would be backlit, but I'm guessing that the shadow cast on the APU/tail area is what makes this a backlist candidate? Also, this shot has no post-processing except for sharpening/noise reduction. In your opinion, is there too much or too little contrast? Lastly, is it worth fixing or is the backlit rejection unfixable here?
