    Image is dark, soft, and slightly overprocessed (light editing halos). A better edit might improve its chances.

      Just got this rejection, and i completely understand the reason (Dark/Unexposed).
      JetPhotos.com is the biggest database of aviation photographs with over 5 million screened photos online!

      I found the problem at ten days into the queue and fixed the exposure, but didn't upload it. Now that I've discovered the usefulness of the forum i'd like to know if like this the photo could be accepted. Click image for larger version

        Hi, I'm not a screener but the photo looks a little oversharpened to me.

          Would be ok for me.

            Hello again, I'm seeking advice on this photo. I recently deleted the darker photo from the queue and fixed it by adding a little more lighting to it, but I'm still unsure if it actually could be accepted because of the angle it was shot at. Thanks in advance!

              Would be rejected for soft/noisy/contrast.

                Hello again, I'm really starting to understand the difference between good and bad photos. But I still have some doubts about this one. I saved the image from being noisy and with low contrast (as I think), but the plane seems still to be kind of dark. Wondering if it would be ok. Thanks in advance again!

                    Hey, thanks for the help. Thought it wasn't backlit cuz when I shot it the sun was still behind me, but there were clouds.

                      Hi, it appears the tail is casting a shadow on the fuselage of the plane, making the photo backlit. Sorry.

                        Hello again, recently went spotting and tried some new techniques, so got way more decent photos (or at least I think so). Seeking advice on these photos. Thanks to anyone that can help!

                          Soft, noisy, overexposed, harsh contrast.

                            Hey, I've been trying to understand how much sharpening I need to get for the image to not look soft (my last one out of three rejections was because of it) and how much sharpening is too much (oversharpen was the reason for the other two rejections).
                            Hope you can explain that, and maybe refer to this image to give a practical example. Thanks.
                            P.s. I would like that this image that I'm referring to would be pre screened, not only used as an example. Click image for larger version  Name:	PSX_20230714_143753.jpg Views:	0 Size:	356.2 KB ID:	1165371

                              This is very soft, looks like due to a lot of noise reduction or other processing being applied.
