    Hello,

    I've received this reject today. https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=10576167.
    Compared to other soft reject I've had. I have serious doubt that this one is really soft.
    Hard lines are visible, ok a little less on the belly, due to a small reflection.
    Any extra guidance would be appreciated.
    Borderline for me, but wouldn't necessarily recommend an appeal.

      Thanks for that Dana.
      As I found another layng of softness after another check, I will indeed refrain from appealing.

      I went to a new spot for me and got some photos which make me unsure and I would like a prescreen on these.

      For all I could see potential issues with horizon, dust, and softness. With the China Cargo, the sun just popped out of the clouds and the grass still dark, so apparently also contrast/exposure issue.
      The final two were taken in very low light with long shadows of the fence, wires, and trees reflecting on the aircrafts, especially on the 77W so both could also have issues with that.
      And maybe there is more stuff II could have missed.

      Thanks in advance.

        1-3. borderline soft (ok for me)
        4-5. soft

        Contrast a bit harsh on some of them, but ok for me.

          Thanks for that Dana,

          I've queued the first two after some slight rework.

          I've received this reject lately https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=10630715 and especially the arifats are striking me.
          I've only added some contrast and a bit of saturation and saved twice on the highest quality
          https://www.jetphotos.com/members/sh...1668626251.jpg
          I have really no idea how those white lines got there.
          I was shooting between the wires of a fence and the wires got some sharp ends at several points.
          Maybe it's something with the sun coming from the LH side here.
          At second step I've only added (apparently too much) sharpening and saved again on highest quality

          At second I would like prescrreen on some photos.

          Potential issues are sharpness, horizon, glare, contrast, processing.

ID:	1149879 I think it's too soft and the is some kind of glare/reflection on the LH-side of the photo. (taken from the terminal.

            If you were shooting through a fence, that's likely what was mistaken for compression.

            1. soft, contrast horizon
            2. soft, contrast, borderline overprocessed
            3. soft

              As I can;t upload the original due to the size limitiations I made a quick re-edit of it, with the upper part of the original included.
              Not for prescreeen (it's useless I Know), but only for probably clearing this up for me.

              The dark spots on top are from a wire of the fence. I had no opportunity to shoot above it.
              Could this cause those artifacts/ weird shadows during editing?
              I want to know as I have a similar case from another aircraft waiting for final editing now.

              Thanks in Advance,

                Yes, almost certainly. It's so strong I can see it in the thumbnail.

                  Thnaks a lot for that Dana,
                  I will refrain from further attempts on this one.
                  But another question,
                  Does this photo also have artefacts/ weird shadows? As I can't see something with the naked eye..

                  And another question?

                  Is this one really overexposed? Or is this too harsh contrast?
                  https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=10644008

                  If I lower the exposure I'm afraid it will get too dark or bad contrast also.
                  I will also double check the serial number /CN as I'm little dazed about that, but apparently it wasn't right.

                  Thanks in advance.

                    1. soft, otherwise ok for me
                    2. contrast is too harsh

                    • Hello,

                      I've received this reject lately https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=10676295 , but I'm a little confused about the color part in the reject.
                      I've only added some contrast, but didn't add any saturation or clarity.
                      For surance I've made a new edit, where I've toned down the contrast a bit, lowered the white balance a bit also, and tried to adress the horizon issue.

                      I'm curious If this version adresses the mentioned issues and if the sharpness is acceptable here.

                      I also have another prescreen request.

                      I'm very curious if this one is sharp enough ( i think it's not ) if there are no weird artefacts here and if there might be any other issues I might have missed

                      Thanks in advance.

                        Yellow/green tint on the rejected image. Don't see a huge difference with the newer version. Other image is soft.
