          P.S. If there's a contrast issue, tell me if it's too much, or too little please.
          Thanks.

            Don't see a big difference, but it's mostly an aesthetic thing, so might come down to whoever screens it.

            Yes, these all have issues with contrast/color, but due to the overcast/flat light, I doubt they are fixable as simply adding more contrast is not likely to make them acceptable.

              I know it might be hard to say because every photo is different, but how should I edit "bad weather shots" to make them acceptable ? Because I've noticed in my experience with Jetphotos, that 95% of my rejections are shots without sun on aircraft, recently this one got accepted https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9373644
              Maybe increasing clarity would help ?

                Basically, the less direct light on the subject (aircraft), the less chance of being accepted, especially if the background is brighter/receiving more light. This doesn't mean you can't get bad weather shots accepted, only that you need to lower your expectation, as the chances are reduced. There is not much you can do with editing to remedy such images.

                  Ok, I'll keep that in mind next time when shooting, and I'll try editing LH A343 from the same series but few shots later where the light is more direct and ask here later, thanks for the hints !

                  • I think that I finally understand what it's all about after comapring previous shots and these , are they ok now ? From the whole "landing sequence" they have the most direct lighting.

                    Earlier I thought that "Too much or too little contrast" was only matter of editing...

                    P.S. 1. Would it be possible to point out "flat light" reason instead of "too much or too little contrast" (personally I think it would be less "misguiding") when rejecting the photo?
                    2. Is it possible to have my forum name changed?
                    Kind Regards

                      Both likely contrast rejections, especially the second.

                      1. borderline contrast
                      2. contrast
                      3. borderline contrast

                      If you mean adding a new rejection category, no, the system is not currently set up to allow such a modification, and in any case 'flat light' infers that adding more contrast could possibly fix the issue, which is simply not the case in most instances.

                      I am not aware of any way to change your forum name, sorry.

                        Ok, but fixable or still not ? If yes, reduce or increase ?

                        1. borderline contrast
                        2. contrast
                        3. borderline contrast
                        The same as first ones - increase, decrease or not fixable ? But mostly focusing on 2nd one, because usually when You said borderline they got accepted (hope this works this time ).
                        Kind Regards

                          Don't think you can do any more to improve them with editing.

                            Thank You so much for help (and patience ) !
                            I have still about 120 photos to upload, for now I'm not sure about few of them, I will ask here in the afternoon (sticking to the 5 per 24h rule).
                            Kind Regards
