    Hi,
    This photo is a reject for soft and bad info:
    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=6885600
    could you please prescreen the reworked photo, and let me know what causes the Genre bad info.
    Scramble web says a AT-802AF in the Military database of Macedonia, is that the reason for bad info?
    Thank you.

    Don't see a big difference between the two, but the original wasn't that bad, imho. Missing Special Scheme category.

    thank you.
    Would be rejected for soft, and overprocessed for the same halo effect mentioned above.

    HI. Glad to hear you found a solution.

    As a piece of advice, pre-screen your images before uploading because the one you just shared shows a bizarre round halo. It may come from LR vignetting tool, not sure. But that may cause the image to be rejected.
    cheers

    Thank you guys for helping me,
    The problem is solved, it was the preset in PS for save for web.
    I changed it now to maximum quality, and everything is fine.
    Thanks also to indicate vignetting, I apply this now in Lightroom.
    As you can see there are dust spots in the image, but I will remove the whole queue and rework all images.

    Hello,
    Pixelation in the dust tool is normal to some extent. Yours looks a bit higher. This is probably something on your post-processing causing compression. I use a D7200 and this is my workflow for sky shots in case something clicks. This should also help you avoid halos:
    1.in LR, DO NOT TOUCH the shadows, highlights, whites, etc. or the contrast sliders. Fix the White balance and adjust exposure using the TONE CURVE. This make a huge difference to avoid halos. Apply sharpening with LR tool or using NIKS. Of course, frame it correctly.
    2. Choose "Edit in Photoshop" and use TIFF format.
    3. Confirm there are no halos using the Equalizer tool. Use the Curves tool to adjust expo and contrast further, keeping one eye on the histogram. Keep using the Equalizer checking for halos. They shouldn't if done right. DO NOT USE Contrast and brightness tools in PS.
    4. Please note I have not changed the size of the image. Some recommend to change and then edit. I don't change it and it works for me but you may want to try it.
    5. Clean the image (if not done already in LR) of dust using the spot removal tool.
    6. when the image is ready, resize and save at maximum quality.

    I hope this helps.

    Your image has vignetting too, which I think comes from using f5.6. To avoid this go 8, 9 or above.

    This image was edited using the method above.

    Therefore I attached the check for dust images how it comes from my camera and how it looks after edit.
    You can see that the 2 images are really pixelize where the sky is visible.
    The question is? if it causes a problem, I will remove the photos from the queue, and on the other hand what causes the problem?

    Thank you.

    Hi, Just adding to Vinicus question. I see you use a large zoom telephoto lens 120-400 Sigma ? I ask because I am seeing the halo/vignette effect on your image which now you are on FF will be more common/obvious as the previous crop camera you use uses the more central areas of the glass.

    I see you shoot RAW, however it would be useful to know what your exif settings are? Seems you haven't allowed them on uploads. As to compression it will be within your editing workflow.
    cheers T

    I use Lightroom and PS to edit the photos.
    I reduce the size first before sharpen with usm.
    Also the usm is used with layer mask, without sharpen the sky.
    Than I save the file with "save for web" best parameters.

    But as you can see on the attached files the one before edit is just saved as it comes out the camera without editing, just saved as jpg.
    I uploaded the file controlled the file with "check for dust spots" and deleted it from the queue.

    Regards

    The D-lightning function from your Nikon is ON?
