    Dear,

    I am trying to take plane pictures at night.
    It's a completely different game...
    What's your opinion about these ones?
    Does any of them stand any chance?
    What could I improve?

    The same standards would apply as with any other more static night shot. I would watch out for blurriness and noise as being the biggest potential problems, but if you can avoid those, then there is no reason such images shouldn't stand a chance.

      Hello,

      Is this properly centered, rotated and cropped?
      First time spotting this whale so I prefer to double check before submitting.

        Thank you
        Centering, level, and crop look ok to me.

          Hello,

          Is this kind of close up of interest and if yes, which crop is the best? First or second?

              Dear,
              Does an Emirates plane with the logo Dubai Expo 2020 (eg https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/8733134) is considered as special paint scheme?
              Thank you

                If it is unique to the aircraft, or only a few aircraft, then yes. If all aircraft carry the same logo, then no.

                  Contrast

                  Dear,
                  I got some pictures rejected for too much or too little contrast.
                  And yes, I am unsure about the too much or too little...

                  I would say too much for 1, 2 ?
                  Not enough for 3, 4 ?

                  Or am I wrong ?

                  Is there any trick to identify the too much or too little contrast in a picture ? How do the screeners assess this aspect ?

                  Thank you again

                    On all of them the aircraft looks a bit dull, lacking highlights and shadows, with a washed out background.

                    The easiest is to check the luminosity histogram. You will see, if the photo lacks shadows, mid tones or highlights, or if there is too much of it. There is a sticky topic somewhere in the forum about the use of the histogram.

                      I was just quickly editing one of your images to show what in effect Gerado has just said in the meantime. They lack contrast not showing the difference in the black/mids/whites - In essence quite 'flat'. Using your jpeg I adjusted contrast via 'curves' in PS (on the left) compared to what you posted (right) which shows how quickly you can deal with these going back to your original file(s). Obviously take more time than me but hopefully it demonstrates the point
                      cheers

                        Thank you so much for taking the time! Very instructive to me. So nice to get support from fellow photographers. High 5!

                              This plane was involved in an aborted take-off incident on 3 August 2018 after it attempted to take off from a taxiway. Engines can be seen in the thrust reversal position.

                              Shall I check the Accident box or not ?

                              Thank you
