    I got this photo rejected for "JPG Compression Artifacts":​

    JetPhotos.com is the biggest database of aviation photographs with over 5 million screened photos online!


    Sadly, indeed there ARE compression artifacts on it. I can see them clearly in the blue sky, and sure you can too. But the thing is, this photo was edited on Photoshop directly from a RAW file, then saved as JPG with 12 Quality (max possible), and then uploaded to Jetphotos. I didnt' do any other re-saving or something that could degrade quality.

    So, what really should I do differently? Is there any other better way in my workflow to preserve the most amount of details then this (RAW -> JPG 12 quality -> Jetphotos) that I'm missing?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hard to avoid when there are strong color gradients in the sky like that. Best way to avoid them is convert to a 16-bit TIFF from the raw file, do your editing, then downsize to 1280/whatever, THEN convert to 8-bit JPEG as the final step before uploading.

    Today I got some pictures rejected, that I wanted some help with.


    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=9438100 : Horizon unlevel: Looking at the center of the picture, where the verticals should be checked, it looks exactly leveled; Bad Info: I really don't know where did I put something wrong, as it is an Airport Overview; Bad Motive: anything wrong with this motive, maybe the people's faces?

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=9438104 : Bad Composition / Aircraft not centered. How should I crop this picture more centered than that?

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=9438120 : Bad Info. I just let the Auto-Fill function do its work. Maybe hit the Airport Overview button?

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=9438129 : Dark. Ok, maybe I can brighten up a little, but: Bad Composition / Aircraft not centered. Again, I don't know how I should crop this picture any different than that.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Thank you Marty! I will fix what needs to be fixed, and accept what can’t.

    Thanks again. Have a good day.

    1) Unfortunately this photo cannot be fixed, and yes, it's because of the faces. Even though they are really small, they are clearly visible in the photo.
    2) Centering of the aircraft is typically at the center of the fuselage. For ATR72 that would be around the windows. The centering of your photo is merely too high for the fuselage to be in the center.
    3) I would put airport overview but please check other replies as well since I have never taken this kind of shot before.
    4) Similar to the second photo, the center of the photo is too high up the fuselage. For A330 I would center it a bit under the windows to where the middle (or widest part) of the fuselage is.

    I hope this helps.

    Best,
    Marty
