    One inconsistency that has directly affected me would be these two photos.

    Exhibit A: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9574341 This photo was submitted before I caught on about if the operator is visible, then I more than likely should submit it with the operator. I submitted this as Private and was ultimately accepted, as you can see from the link above.

    An aircraft from the same fleet 'Exhibit B: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9581880' was subsequently rejected upon initial upload on Jan 14, 2020 and screener rejected for 'bad info - airline' and left a comment that the operator was visible and therefore should have been submitted with the upload.

    I understand now that it depends on the operator in order to determine if the airline/operator should be included. One inconsistency just means that screeners are human, just like me, but it would be nice to see in upload guidelines that this issue be addressed a little more black/white as this seems to be a slightly gray area in terms of making sure each upload has as much information as possible.
    Yup, things like that get missed all the time. Not much we can do about that other than try our best.

    • Good morning, I have some possible hot photos (first registrations and new aircraft type) that I would liked to run by you for pre-screening:

      1) Haze, contrast, exposure, horizon? Does the nose end cause an issues since it is not lit like the back half?

      3) Inside hanger - does it suffer from these issues: Exposure, horizon, contrast, Back-lit, acceptable crop?

        Thank you for your assistance in advance.

        1-Soft and nose dark

        2-Bit soft

        3-Hightlights a bit blown away towards nose

        4-Good

        5-Backlit and dark

        The common issue in all is a bit of softness overall

        • With this photo, there was a tall fence surrounding the aircraft at close proximity, making a side profile photo almost impossible. With this angle and the obstruction of the flag pole, would this be suitable in regards to crop/ratio as well as exposure and contrast? Also, would the obstruction be considered a reject or would it be designated as unavoidable?

            Should be fine in this case since obstruction is unavoidable.

            • Dlowwa, I understand that all screeners are different, but I having trouble coming to terms that they are so different that one, or possible more, screener(s) finds the photo acceptable and the others do not. In terms of the photo you were helping me with last week, another rejection has come up for it and I am just hoping for a little insight as to how wide the range of standards that exist between you and the other screeners?

              https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8296210

              I have a couple other photos from that sequence that I will try to fidget with, but I think, unfortunately, it is time to stop messing with the photo in the link above.

              Thanks again for all your help with that and hopefully your advice/response will help put my mind at ease

                We've taken quite a few new screeners onboard over the past little while, and they tend to be a little.. overenthusiastic (looking for every little flaw). That image was screened by a trainee and another recent addition. Again, the vignetting is there, just not bad enough that it should cause a rejection. I'll pass it along to those too not to be so strict in the future with such things. Image has been added.

                • Good afternoon, Dlowwa, I really appreciate the explanation and the unexpected acceptance of this photo. I totally understand that all screeners have different preferences and also understand that the newer additions are looking to make an impression. Thanks again for everything that you do

                    • Looking for feedback on these two photos...

                      1) Worried about color, contrast and exposure

                      2) Me thinks the horizon is level, but would appreciate a 2nd opinion, as well as if the exposure is sufficient

                        Both would be ok for me.

                        • So I was having doubts with these two photos and they were gonna be screened this evening and tomorrow, but I took them out of the queue because I was worried they suffered from vignette. Would appreciate a second opinion on these. Thank you

                          1&2) Vignette? exposure issues?

                            Slight vignetting on the second, but wouldn't be enough for a rejection from me.

                                1. needs CW rotation
                                2. ok for me
                                3. soft and contrast seems a bit washed out. borderline crop as well.
