    Hi,

    I'm looking for advice (not just from screeners but other members too) on a couple of photos that were recently rejected. I can see they're not quite right (not looking to repost them) but I want to understand what can be done to improve photos (aside from taking better ones) when we then observe approved photos that are not to quite the standard usually seen on JP.

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]22473[/ATTACH] (I'm aware its not quite horizontal but easily fixed)


    [ATTACH=CONFIG]22474[/ATTACH]

    I'd be interested in your thoughts on these two to upload. I worked on the advice given (frankly, my first attempt was shockingly bad). It may well be that a lower resolution may help.

    As always, grateful for your advice.


    Cheers
    1. contrast a bit flat, and needs a touch of brightening, but otherwise should be ok
    2. sky in top of frame above stabilizer significantly darker than the rest. filter used?
    3-4 slight green cast/flat light. not sure if fixable

    1. borderline color/contrast
    2. contrast, borderline soft

    Both lack contrast due to overcast conditions.

    Virgin, just like Aeroflot or Jet2 are airlines with metallic paint scheme. Those scheme are extremely dull when there's no good sunlight on them which is the case here. Honestly I'm not sure you can make it better than what you already did.
    Would it be my picture, I would keep it for the personal collection

    kind Regards
    Alex

    Thanks. Could I check that it is too much contrast please.

    I had this one rejected for too little/much contrast and having sought advice, read up on it and corrected it, I was unsure and believed it was for too much contrast. Pointers for both would be greatly appreciated, make a significant difference to my development and hopefully less hassle for screeners.

    I'm trying out a different type of photo so wanted to check the following please.

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]22025[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]22027[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]22028[/ATTACH]

    Its the first time I've posted a photo with two aircraft so wondering which registration to use or if any specific selections are required.

    Cheers
    1. blurry
    2. soft, dark
    3. soft

    Use info for nearest aircraft if you have better quality images.

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]21687[/ATTACH]

    Also, this one was rejected for being too dark and too much/little contrast. I've worked on it and wanted to see if this is good enough.

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]21688[/ATTACH]

    Thanks
    1. borderline, but would be acceptable for me
    2. still borderline at best
