  • Questions regarding my rejected photos

    I uploaded 42 photos to JP.net yesterday.
    Two of them were accepted, but the rest weren't.

    I do accept what the screeners decided; however,
    I don't really understand some of the rejection reasons.
    Perhaps I might do, but I want some advice from you all
    as I'm an absolutely newbie and amature
    regarding both photography and using photo editor software.

    When I uploaded them, I just uploaded exactly what I got
    from my digital camera so their quality didn't meet the standard.
    I thought they did though.

    Anyway, these are some of the 40 rejected photos I have questions about.

    Note :

    1. All related photos in my hdd have been sharpened
    - look clearer then they are shown here.

    2. *** is my question.

    -------------------

    - Bad Info (Aircraft, Airline, Registration, etc.)
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365676
    *** I'm not sure if the info that bad is 'Boeing 717-2..'
    because I chose from the list. If it is, why some other photos
    in the database have .. at the end of their model.
    If it is not, what should I fix?

    Oh there is a small Qantas aircraft far away in the shot
    but I don't think it should be considered any more than
    background detail as it is too small.


    - Undersharpened (Soft)
    - Bad Info (Aircraft, Airline, Registration, etc.)
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365691
    *** Same question as above.


    - Bad Info (Aircraft, Airline, Registration, etc.)
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365674
    *** Same question as above.


    - Undersharpened (Soft)
    - Bad Info (Aircraft, Airline, Registration, etc.)
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365670
    *** Same question as above.


    - Undersharpened (Soft)
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=366212
    *** I have made sharpen, more sharpen. Then I think I look clearer.


    - Poor Lighting (Too Dark)
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365667
    *** I don't know how to make it brighter without adding too much noise


    - Blurry
    - Obstructing Objects/Foreground Clutter
    - Wrong Categories Checked/Not Checked
    - Bad Quality
    - Bad Motive
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365658
    *** It says blurry here so I would like to know how is it different from undersharpened (soft)


    - Window Glare
    - Horizon Unlevel
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365645
    *** I've just noticed that the horizon must be level. Before this
    I thought that as the aircraft moves in different directions and angles,
    take off and landing for example, the angle of camera is
    up to the plane so it can be any angles. I was wrong anyway.


    *** Can I remove window glare using PS or anything like that
    or do I have to make it clear when I take the photo.
    How can I take photo without window glare with glass at night like this?


    - Undersharpened (Soft)
    - Bad Motive
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365616
    *** If I want to take photo of check-in counters like this
    how can I make it not 'bad motive'?

    - Bad Motive
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365623
    *** This lounge is in the passenger lounge in Brisbane Domestic Airport.
    Can I upload anything like this without any plane or terminal building?
    If I can, How can I take photo to improve the motion.

    - Bad Motive
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365627
    *** Also this one I want to show the corridor to the gates.
    How should I do to improve the motion?

    - Bad Motive
    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=366168
    *** This is one of my favourite photos actually.
    Not because it has a great quality, but it is because
    this is the only bird-eye-view of Brisbane I took myself.
    I really want to upload it coz one more reason
    very few of Brisbane sky view photos are in the database.
    Can you give me advice regarding this?
    Or do I just have to accept and let it sit in my own collection.


    I'm an absolutely newbie!!!
    Please help me to improve my photos.

    Check the aircraft census for correct info. The window glare is pretty bad in the short, i wouldn't re-upload it.

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365691
    Again, check the aircraft census.

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365674
    Getting repedative...

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365670
    ....

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=366212
    If you think it looks good enough to get in, re-upload it.

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365667
    It is indeed quite dark. Also a bit of glare of the window. Personally, I wouldn't bother with it.

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365658
    Blurry results from using to slow of a shutter speed and the image suffering from camera shake. Soft means that it just needs a kick of USM. Again, I wouldn't bother with this one as theere's jsut way to much that can't be fixed.

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365645
    Keep the camera level to the horizon. This one isn't fixable either.

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365616
    Bad Motive is basically the screener way of saying what is the point of the photo.

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365623
    Really not closely related to aviation. I do understand that it was taken inside the airport, it just not related to aviation.

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=365627
    More related to aviation that the previous photo, but still not close enough for the database.

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=366168
    Not enough aircraft in the photo.

      You should be a screener Scott

      Honestly I can't add much that Scott hasn't already said, the problem with window view shots is that they can often show a unique perspective but it is a genre which is really overdone and is often used by some people as an easy way to shots accepted-I'm not saying that is the case here but I am speaking in more general terms.

      As screeners we have to decide what is a good window view and what isn't, the best ones are the ones which show a dramatic sunrise/sunset/cloud formation and the ones which show plenty of ground detail. Unfortunately it is quite tough to get shots accepted where all we can see is other aircraft in the near to far distance taken as you taxi to and from the gate, the same goes for shots which are just an image of a typical cloud formation or endless expanses of ocean/fields etc.

      In addition it is evident that on short haul aircraft (particularly in the USA) the windows can be real dirty/scratched and that seems to be the case with these pictures-I've never had problems getting clean windows on long haul flights but short hops around the US seem to be quite a challenge.

      Finally you need to remember that this is an aviation site, pictures must be aviation related so if you are taking window view shots the aircraft must take up a significant part of the frame, unless it is an airport overview.

      On the plus side there will soon be a much better description of all the rejection reasons available for everyone to refer to, it is currently being fine tuned in the crew forum before it gets posted here (in the next few days hopefully).

            Geeze...that's a lot.

            I was going to respond to them one by one, but then I realized Scott has already done it. Phew... :P

              Thank you very much all.

              Now I got some points and ideas about them.

              I'll try my best to improve some of them that I think can be improved.

              Hopefully some of them and others to be uploaded will be accepted
              at higher percentage

                  Also, the format of your "airport" is wrong.

                      The correct format for an airport is the basic name of the airport followed by the airport code (if known). The photo i have linked to below has the correct airport format entered into the airport section (I am assuming you were at Brisbane International Airport since it is the only Brisbane in Australia in the DB!).
                      This photo has the correct format http://www.jetphotos.net/viewphoto.php?id=349525
                      ( Brisbane Int'l Airport - YBBN)

                      Hope This Helps (Also Hope i am correct!)

                        You may be right, but they call it Domestic Airport here.
                        Thats why I put Brisbane Domestic Airport.

                        Actually there is only one airport, yet there are two terminals
                        which are separatly called by Brisy as they are 1 or 1.5 km
                        away from each other.

                        So... um do I have to change the information to Brisbane Int'l Airport - YBBN
                        then put Domestic Terminal as an additional info in the comment box?

                          I can't be sure but I would imagine this would be the correct way of doing it. Could somebody a bit more knowledgeable confirm this please?

                            Yes thats right Steven

                            Just use what appears in the menu on the upload page, when entering it on the auto-fill feature type YBBN as the airport code.
