    Here is another frame that I think was a little bit sharper to begin with, how is it now? I am aware neither of these are perfectly sharp. Thanks.

    Just want to confirm the horizon is good with this one, since it was taken with a wide angle. Also the nose seems a bit soft, what do you think?
    Horizon ok, but image is soft.

    Added some contrast in case it is fixable, but I can see that it may still be too little. Also, the water bomber was rejected for having vignette, which I do not understand at all. I have attached the equalized view and the only possible reason I can see is a large part of the top right corner, and some of the left side is darker. This is obviously just a part of the smoky sky that is darker, as the tail and building to the right are not darker, only the sky is. Would you say that I should appeal? Thank you.
    1. still borderline at best
    2. as I said, would have been ok for me, but couldn't guarantee a successful appeal

    Another two I'm requesting pre-screening for:

    The Falcon, though it may look like it was taken on an overcast day, it was actually a blue sky day. There is just smoke in the distance, and the sun had a cirrus cloud over it. Is this still going to have contrast problems or is this ok? For the water bomber, softness and horizon. Thanks.
    1. contrast
    2. ok for me

    Would the foreground wing be enough to make the photo not suitable for the database, or is it just borderline? Also would the photo being hot have any impact on this? Thanks.
    Would come down to the discretion of whoever screened it (so yes, borderline).

    I went back for another round with this one just to see if I could get something better. There is no fence, but I am still worried about sharpness as the wind was pushing me around quite a bit. Also curious regarding contrast, as there was a large amount of wildfire smoke the day this photo was taken. I know this is the same stuff I have been asking for all these times, but could I get an opinion on horizon again? When I line up with the hangar, the aircraft looks very tilted, so I tried to find a middle ground. Thanks for all your help.
    Quality ok for me, though foreground wing a bit distracting.

    Went snooping around the airport today with some spare time, unfortunately the weather was overcast so not very many useable photos. The first photo was in a spot of sunshine, so just wanted to make sure that this has enough contrast even though sky is overcast. Second photo, I didn't really think there was a chance with and only attempted an edit because the airframe is new to the database. All in all, curious on contrast, softness, and horizon mainly for these two. Thank you!
    1. a bit soft, but ok for me
    2. bad contrast. not fixable.

    Alright, I had some trouble with his horizon for some reason, but I believe that I have found a level that is acceptable. I have also noticed that many of my photos recently have had softness as a major issue, which I don't recall getting as much in the past. I will try to look into this. Here is even more sharpening, though I am worried there could be issues with graininess/oversharpened. Finally, not sure that this is the place to ask, but would this be considered a night shot being taken with the sun so low? Thanks for your help.
    This image is very noisy/extremely compressed. There is no chance it would be accepted.

    Don't one crop being significantly better than the other; both would be borderline (at screener's discretion). Newer version still a bit soft and probably needing a touch of CW rotation.
