    Hi, Erezs
    First of all, i think knowing how to recognize if the contrast is low or high is more important than knowing the way to adjust the contrast. Well, there is a post here you can have a look. " http://www.focusonflight.net/forum/v....php?f=16&t=12 "
    Besides, i use curve to adjust the contrast of photos sometime when you open curve you will see three different colors straw there and then using the black one to click the black part of the whole photo. You need to click many times sometime might click different parts to find the most suitable contrast. When i finish all steps of the processing i will check the whole photo if the photo has high or low contrast . If not, i will save if low or high i will use the " Contrast " function to adjust them again but that will be slight adjustment. Anyway, recognize contrast is more important than the way to adjust contrast.
    Hope can help you !

    Got that one back for 'bad info':
    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=5864546

    Is this not a spotting location? Because there are similar pictures of the terrace in ZRH in this catergory.
    Thanks,
    Peter

    In this case I was expecting contrast, under/overexposure rejection. Maybe even soft/oversharpen, overproccesed. But really, the last reasons I would think of were cut off and unlevel. Is it woth to appeal this one? It maybe wasn't a steady approach, but it was taken like 3 minutes after a hail storm, so there was a possibility pretty strong crosswind. And cut off? I really don't know what to say, most of my recently accepted shots from LHR were "almost wingless", and I have many more similar "cut off" shots accepted in the past.

    What do you guys think?

    edit: I tried to appeal, but it got rejected without any comments. Can you please point out what's actually wrong with this photo? Is it because of cut flap? Should I crop it tighter or wider? I really don't get it...
    Anyone?

    Next time perhaps it is best if you comment that you not like this kind of crop or that picture. But then I have to raise a question about other photos that are already accepted with this crop style, because there are many pictures on your site with this crop. Why did you accept these photos then?

    Examples

    Having looked at your rejection, I can see why it was given a horizon rejection. I understand the runway isn't level and that's fine and acceptable, however if you look at the signs and the markers that are along the runway edge they are all leaning to the right. Not just one or two but all of them. So the image just needs a little CCW rotation to bring them vertical. The runway will still slope but that's ok.

    As for the crop, i'm pretty sure that you could get the fuselage more central without cropping the top of the tail off. This may mean a slightly wider crop. The crop that you had rejected is different from the examples you provided anyway. Even in your own pics the aircraft is filling the entire frame from a head on view. This is allowable and looks balanced. This is a 1/4 side on so centering needs to be more along the window line as suggested. The tail will be pretty high in the frame yes.

    Hope this helps, James.

    I would suggest this needs at least 0.8CW rotation. Inflight/in cabin pictures are very difficult to level as you don't have a vertical point of reference. But this is definitely leaning to the left. Hopefully that rotation should fix it but use your own judgement as well.

    Hope this helps.
    Thanks very much Dave. Cheers.

    Hello, good day to all.

    Had this rejected for Horizon unlevel:
    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=5860802

    I used the horizontal line on the front bulkhead, between left and right overhead bins, as my reference during edit. Perhaps not the best idea.

    Would appreciate advice if cw or ccw rotation is needed to fix this, and what reference points should be used to get correct leveling?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Cheers,
    Edwin.

    Here is one of my photos, which is similar to yours.
    https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/8475619
    In the photo you can see that im not stand 90° to the RWY too, but i have used it for leveling.


    I havenīt accepted or rejected any photo.

    The post above is only my personal opinion, but best wait for a screener or try it here: Pre-Screening Thread

    Ok, Thx

    In my opinion, it need some counter clock wise rotation. Look at the RWY in the Background, it should be Horizontal.


    Best Regards and always happy spottings.

    Ok, as you say that you have no email, it was rejected for soft which IMO is the correct decision and not worth appealing. The aircraft is soft, especially around the tail area. If you want to upload photos at 1920px you must upload only your best quality images. 1920px will make flaws even more noticeable and make it easier to reject. You need to either sharpen it more or downsize it which can have a similar effect.

    Hope this helps
