    Ok for me. Borderline distracting foreground for the second; will be at screener's discretion.

    Pre screening for these two. My mainly concerned for the CRJ but thought I'd throw in the Embraer as well. Thanks!
    1. soft
    2. soft, noisy, borderline overexposed

    Thanks for the feedback and Happy New Year! Just one question, though. When screening photos, do screeners just use what they can see on the photo itself to determine if it is passable? Or do you use and have access to tools such as the check for dust feature? I know the feedback here is just your viewpoint and isn't a guarantee that the photo will make it into the d/b, but on some occasions when I have gone to upload and used the check for dust tool, I have found some halos or some (faint) dust spots that you had never mentioned. Would these be taken into account if you did have these tools, or since they aren't visible in the regular image, you would still accept to photo? I hope my question makes sense, and I hope this is ok to ask (:
    Screeners have (and use) the same tools you can see once the image is uploaded. Halos and dust spots generally need to be visible unequalized to be an issue, but we are much more sensitive to noticing them. I'd estimate that out of each 100 images I screen ~1-10 might have faint halos/dust spots that are visible when equalized but not really when viewed normally, so are accepted.

    I see. I have fixed the ones that need fixing, and picked what seems like a sharper frame for the first MAX. How are these now?
    Borderline (for same reasons), but close to acceptable for me. Also starting to see a little noise.

    Would appreciate a pre-screening for these 5. I know these might be considered very similar shots, but the foggy weather today made these a little bit more challenging to edit. I used a couple different approaches, and am curious to see what is best, or if they all work. Also any other pre-screening comments, thanks!
    Most have softness/(weak) contrast issues. Second is only one I would accept instantly.

    Hello!

    They both look soft and have a couple of dust spots.

    Pre screening for these two please. I am worried about softness but hopefully they can make the cut.

    Thanks for the info.

    A family member of mine took a trip to Kenya recently, and was able to get some pictures at an airstrip there. The quality is poorer than from the camera I use, but would like to see if they are JP worthy due to the relative rarity of shots like these for me. Horizon is difficult, as there are no buildings so I tried my best to follow the ground. Second photo would be in the control tower category. Thanks in advance.
    1. soft, compression
    2. soft/heat haze, compression

    Your family member will need to upload the images as you may only upload images taken by yourself.

    Without seeing the originals, could say the cause of the quality issues, but such strong purple fringing is usually indicative of poorer quality optics.
