    No need to read that, because if you don't accept, you can't upload. So i think it's pretty useless.
    It might be of use to you until you have 100% acceptance ratio buddy. I'll save you some time and direct you straight to section 6.7 as this part you obviously didn't read.

    6.7 Over Processed / Bad postprocessing

    This rejection may apply to photos which simply look over processed. This can be for example an improper use of noise removal programs up to the result of getting a plastic like look or smudgy edges. Also, halos caused by wrong sharpening settings or other wrong post processing settings, will result in a rejection.

    Reading the upload guideline is mandatory, a lot of energy was put to make an upload guideline which is there to help people reach and understand our standards. With good comprehension of the upload guideline you'll quickly get your pics accepted. Without reading it it is very hard....

    Thanks Tim, I guess I'll just have to try harder. In this case there wasn't an option to shoot from the other side at this airshow, or I definitely would have.

    Hey Mick,

    By submitting photos to the website, I'm sure you will have read and understood the Upload Guidelines, as does everyone. I refer to section 5.1 which should give you your answer.

    Whilst you may personally like the shot the way it is, it doesn't fit the guidelines of the website therefore won't pass the screening process.

    5 Rejection reasons explained - Exposure

    5.1 Backlit

    As a general rule: Don't take pictures with the sun in your eyes, shooting against the sun puts the visible half of the aircraft in shadow which means we can't see it to its advantage.
    As a rule of thumb: if the tail casts a shadow on the fuselage, the photo is most likely to be rejected for backlit.

    An exception to this is when the photographer is creating a silhouette sunset/sunrise type of shot.

    Hopefully we can see some photos of yours in the database soon!

    Cheers

    That's just it. It's not well lit at all, it's completely in shadow.

    Thanks dlowwa. While it certainly meets the definition of "backlit", my issue is why would that result in rejection of this image. It is well-exposed overall, aircraft well lit. Surely being backlit by definition doesn't mean the image is rejected.

    Very obviously backlit, whole of aircraft is in shadow. Don't see softness really being a big issue though.

    That's the definition of backlit

    Hi,
    I've had several attempts at submitting photos, all have been rejected for various reasons, many of which I am happy with and have certainly learned from. However, I must ask for some advice on this one that was rejected for being undersharpened and backlit. When I zoom into 100% in Lightroom the lettering on this aircraft look perfectly crisp to me, and I don't think it has motion blur. While the sun was above and behind the aircraft, I don't understand why the rejection for being backlit if the subject aircraft is well-exposed and perfectly well lit, and background isn't blown out. What am I missing?
    Thanks in advance,
    Mick
