    From the upload guideline :
    Warbird / Vintage
    This category is to be selected for old planes (anything that was not built after 1970, or where the production started before 1970), planes that are no longer in regular service and planes in museums. Also, replicas of vintage aircraft need the "vintage" category.

    Thank you for the advice. Could you point me to the "vintage" criteria, since I do not see them in the upload guidelines or in other sticky threads? Also the search button did not help me.

Sorry if I missed it and, again, thank you for your help and your patience.

    In your opinion, is the next photo acceptable and which category should I select? (It's Shanghai Pudong before dawn, I thought to upload it as tarmac):

Rejections for category alone are rare, and only happen if there have been repeated issues.
    Thank you for the explanation. I knew upload guide states this for low angle light, but it didn't occur to me that this photo could qualifiy for the case. I will pay attention to this in the future.

    Seems to me there is no morning light or else (it was past 11.00 am), and it has been taken within minutes with other photos that have been accepted. Some fo the accepted photos were taken earlier. I can of course flag "night shot" in a later submission, but I'd like to understand how to decide if the category should be flagged or not.

    Thank you for your help.

    The reasons were:
    1. Dark / Underexposed
    2. Categories wrong or missing

    I am going to fix #1, but I do not understand what I have done wrong with #2. Is not an airliner the default category?

    No trick for determining if an image is too soft/blurry, just use my eyes
    Thank you again for help. I'm going to try to fix these issues.

    I tried to enhance the workflow, and I saw that one way to lessen the amount of oversharpening and jaggies is not to apply the presharpening before downsizing. What do you think of the photos shown at the bottom of this message? Are they better if compared to the one you had a look the they before yesterday and, btw, are they acceptable for submission?

    Also, do you have a tric to understand if a photo is too much blurry before starting the postproduction? i usually look to the serial numbers and windows, but it does not seem I managed to understand properly if a shot has too much blur

    Thank you in advance for your opinion and suggestions.

    Wow, this is bad news indeed, I applied the same workflow I used for my photos in ZRH that got accepted, and used a sharper lens this time

    I can easily fix the oversharpen issue, but is the blurry issue fixable in your opinion? I thought I used a good exposure time (1/250 - 1/320)... Too bad.
    Would you also, please, teach me the way you use to check if a photo is blurred? Some of them seemed good to me (not the A380, to be honest).

    #5 might not be blurry, but it's hard to tell with the oversharpening. The A380 would have no chance at acceptance (due to obstruction), but in that case the blur is caused by heat haze, and not any technique/hardware problems like the other images.
