    On one hand, the shadows are too dark and lacking details, on the other hand the photo has clipped highlights.

    Hey screeners & crew, just wanted to know whether the following has too much or too little contrast.

    I believe it is was too much from the appeal comments regarding the histogram, however I just wanted to confirm before re-editing it. Also curious if it would be an easy fix in your guys opinion.

    Many thanks,

    It happens a lot that people copy/paste a registration or c/n from a site or page and do not see they copied a space. It gives an extra, but false, input in the database.
    No worries, sorry about that! Will be more vigilant in future!

    Hey there,

    Not looking to fix this image as i'm guessing the contrast is a major, however was just wanting to make sense of the screeners comment "free space before reg. is not allowed".

    Was this just meaning there was a space before I put the rego in, or does this mean something else?

    just wanting to know so I can avoid doing it again in future,

    Many thanks and with Kindest Regards,
    Jordan W

    so I had this image of a Spitfire rejected due to Undersharpen (soft) in which I appealed as I didn't agree with it.

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=7267607

    I understand that the appeal was rejected and fair enough if the standards were not met for the website, however, I was curious about the comments left by the admin dealing with the appeal which were "too much use of noise reduction tools which caused a overall soft photo".

    I have never used any form or type of noise reduction in any editing software in my time uploading to JP so was really just confused as to how this was determined? Is it due to the level of softness in the image or is there more involved in identifying this specifically?

    I only bring this up to get an idea for future images and what to identify prior to putting them into the queue,

    Thanks and Kindest Regards,

    i'm looking for some help with the horizon of a image I took yesterday.
    So i've tried levelling the image (vertically) a few times now and can't seem to get a version where it all looks to be level,

    If I level my image with respect to the light pole, hanger door and vertical objects on the left hand side it looks to be unlevel on the right hand side. As shown in the Flickr link below:

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/157241...posted-public/

    If I level the image with respect to the framework inside the hanger, the metal lines in the top right hand corner and the 'Fieldair' sign, it makes the pole and door look slightly unlevelled as shown in the Flickr link bellow:

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/157241...posted-public/

    So my question is which do you think is more suitable (if either of the two) for acceptance without a horizon rejection?

    Kindest Regards,

    Ps. sorry about the Flickr links, my current laptop doesn't allow me to upload images directly to the forum.

    Im not really looking to fix this one up as I have a slight feeling that it may be 'unfixable' however I was wondering if I could get some background into why this was rejected for contrast?

    Was it because of the similar coloured airframe to the sky? or the strength of the shadows?.ect

    This is mainly to get an idea for my future submissions to the website,

    Thanks and Kindest Regards,
