    I didn't bother, because in the majority of cases (especially for beginners, like myself and Andrew) appeals are not upheld, nor justified.

      Try to follow this workflow for your photos.

          BTW, the spots on the bottom of the photo on #3 is part of a fence, that I tried my best to crop out..

            Hi Andrew. Again, not a screener and not an expert either, but here goes.

            1) The aircraft looks a little soft towards the nose for me. You could try to use a narrower aperture (f/8 or f/9 maybe) in future to get more of it in focus. Your aspect ratio on this one is not correct. Your photo is 1280 x 725, and it should be 1280 x 720 to make it a 16:9 ratio.

            2) Aspect ratio: it's not 16:9, so it won't be acceptable as far as I'm aware. Your photo is too wide, with not enough height. You should be able to tell Lightroom to crop to a specific, standard aspect ratio. May need a very slight CCW rotation when looking at the verticals and a screener would need to judge the lighting and contrast. I think it's decent in terms of sharpness, though.

            3) Same issue with the non-standard aspect ratio. It's not 16:9, 3:2, or 4:3. It's too wide and "squashed". There is a lot more space on the right than the left, so the crop needs work. Some softness towards the tail, and maybe a bit of chromatic aberration / colour fringing? Lighting and contrast should be judged by a screener.

              Hello, this photo was rejected for:
              Photo cropping/edges/Size ratio
              But I don't understand how, becuase in Lightroom, I set it to a 16:10 ratio when the file is downsized to 1280 pixels.
              I'm posting to see whether or not I should appeal, or if I can fix it, and re-submit it?

              UPDATE: I releazied that the ratio was messed up in Lightroom, and I didn't know that it didn't make the photo at the correct ratio. I just re-submitted the photo with a 16:10 ratio. Thank you!

                Please read the upload guidelines.

                You clearly have not read them as it lists 3 acceptable ratios and 16:10 is not one of them. Do not skim the guidelines - set aside 30 minutes of your day and work through them like you would for a textbook.

                You can choose to keep ignoring the guidelines, but at some point the screeners are just going to limit your upload queue to 1 photo every 2 weeks.

                  Oh, OK. Thank you! I deleted the photo, and made it a 4:3 ratio, and then re-submitted the photo. Thank you!

                    You may have way too much empty space and foreground clutter with that ratio. Why not crop to 16:9?

                      Good point, deleted and re-uploaded with a 16:9 ratio. Thank you!

                      • Hello everyone,
                        I re-uploaded the photo with a 16:9 ratio, and then it got rejected for Over/Under Saturation, Hue
                        https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=7327280
                        Should I appeal? If not, is there a way to fix this problem? In the color area of Lightroom, all I did was set a +8 vibrance, and that's all, and I do that to all my photos, and I never get Saturation rejections.

                        Thanks everyone for your help!!



                        Thanks,

                          The photo has a green-ish/yellow-ish colour cast, which is easy to fix with the white balance tool.

                            Hello,
                            This photo was rejected for backlighting... I had a quick question. https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=7366430
                            Before taking the photo, I had noticed that the sun might get in the way, and I moved as far away from the sun as possible, to avoid any possible backlighting. After thoroughly examining the photo before submitting it, I noticed that it was borderline backlit, and thus I'm asking if either I should appeal, or do you think it's fixable? The sun was actually behind the building, however, it did do some "discoloration" to the sky as it always does, but it's fairly borderline backlit IMHO.
                            Thank you!!

                              The aircraft is genuinely backlit, not just borderline. The whole fuselage as seen from this angle is in its own shadow. I wouldn't appeal that one.
