    Here are the two rejects:

    If it is, as I suspect, due to night lighting, can you please say what the deciding factor is - anything from dusk to dawn. I've had a few occasions, where I have ticked this and photos have been rejected because of it (and it was dawn or dusk!) - and a few accepted where it wasn't ticked at all. Some guidance would be much appreciated!
    Yes, should have been Night Shot, but had that been the only issue, it would have been fixed for you. As we do not reject for bad categories alone.

    You can read about categories here:

    Also, in the future, please post all of your screening/editing questions in the same thread.

    These are the same photo.

    Also, there does not appear to be a serial number. The aircraft has a serial #5441. It could be that, or it could be the lack of a “night shot” tick, or both. I don’t have any inside information to help you further than that.

    I don’t see anything from the vertical references that would indicate the horizon is significantly off. Recentering it a bit higher in the frame should be enough.

    I’ve moved your post here to your previous thread, but please keep your posts to your own thread in the future.

    Horizon unlevel - what's the reference point?

    Hello, I've had the attached photo rejected; the "not centred" thing I can deal with, but the "horizon unlevel" issue is confusing me a little. I had used the poles in the background as the reference point. What do you look for when you are determining the levelness of the horizon?

    Good morning!

    I've had a few rejections recently due to sharpness, of which the following is one:

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=6303217

    My efforts at sharpening tend to be like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut, so I think I need a little guidance!

    What would you suggest would be the best percentage/radius to use here to address this one?

    Two to ask about here:

    1. This first one, I can understand one objection. Clearly, the wrong reg. But the category wrong or missing? I'm assuming dusk/night lighting, but before I assume and pick the wrong one, can you confirm?

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=6214733

    2. This second one, I'll deal with the sharpness issue, but the bad hue/colour? Seems ok to me, but what have I done to mess it up (or what can I do to correct it?!)

    First one should indeed be 'night shot'. Second one has a very slight green cast, but I wouldn't have rejected it for color. The softness is an issue, but if you can address that, I don't see why it shouldn't be accepted.

    Good evening John,

    Thank you for using the forum for advice.

    The photo had been wrongly rejected. My apologies, the photo has now been accepted.
    For perfection it could use a tad more red tint (less green). In case you want to fine-tune it, use the resubmit option from the photo page.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    What is the problem here? It was early morning light and the contrast seems fine. What adjustment should be made here?
    Just my opinion and stand for correction but I personally think it is a bit over saturated. Still a brilliant and exceptional photo in my opinion!
    Have a great day ahead
