  • Pre-screening advice and a clarification:

    1) will this covering be considered "obstruction"? I've previously had a very similar shot accepted and just wondering if that was a fluke.



    2) Reading through the "Obstruction/clutter" rejection reason in Upload Guidelines, it made me think of a former picture I had rejected and rejected on appeal.
    "Exceptions may be made if the equipment forms part of the motive of the shot, such as in use de-icing equipment, or if the angle of the shot means only a small part of the aircraft is obstructed, such as ground power units/cargo loading devices."

    Similar to the de-icing equipment being a motive to show the de-icing process, my motive on this was to show the loading process with the loading devices. Then I also see cargo loading devices can obstruct a small part of the aircraft. Thoughts? Would it ever be worth uploading a shot showing the loading process on a cargo...

  • Thanks for your help. I'll sharpen up #1 a bit....

  • My apologies.
    Pre-screening advice - I've listed areas of potential concern and would appreciate thoughts or other concerns.


    1) soft, contrast, exposure


    2) contrast, exposure, color? I like the clouds, but wonder if it messes up the contrast with a grey plane - I do have a shot without so many clouds.


    3) centering (I've centered wingtip to wingtip and top/bottom fuselage), haze (for sure on the background plane, but not sure if that matters)...

  • Rejected for "backlit" and "bad info" - https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8326245

    For future reference on backlit, is this very close to being not backlit? Where specifically should I focus to see if it will be rejected as backlit?

    Thanks for your time!

  • Shaking my head at myself for "military"...

    In this picture there is part of a hangar on the right, and a runway approach light for RWY 31 to the left of the sign. Still not acceptable?...

  • I would welcome advice/help with this rejection and the reasons below: https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8299512

    Bad Info: I'm guessing the bad info is that I selected "airport overview"? Looking through the list of options, "overview" seemed the best fit for my picture, as nothing else fit and "overview" seems like it would be a catch-all for airport pictures that don't fit other options. "Airport overview" seems less-specific and more subjective. For my rejected photo, what would be the proper "airport view" option?

    Bad motive: This is a very small airport with no control tower and a few unexceptional hangars. This airport signage is the most distinguishing feature of the airport, save an aerial view, and would be the first thing people notice coming to the airport. If the photo is on FR24 people would instantaneously know where they are at. Is there an acceptable motive for this photo, or similar...

  • No worry, I'm sure I'm not communicating super clear - the limitations of online communication. The heart of the matter is this (disregard my pictures, rejection reasons, appeals, reversals, etc.): I believe it is possible for a user to delete a photo from queue AND for it to simultaneously be in screening. Not active/live to a user, active/live for a screener. This was my experience.

    I understand if this seems like a freak scenario and not worthy of further looking into or testing by the development team. But if there is a running list of things for a development team to look into during the next round of website enhancements and development, this could be considered.

    Thanks for your time and dialogue!...

  • Not asking anything in a roundabout way - just think it's odd I could delete a queued photo that had entered or been screened (couldn't have been rejected for at least a minute until I re-uploaded). That shouldn't be able to happen. 100% my fault for uploading a photo that wasn't hot....

  • Thanks for the explanation. I'll make sure I take a few more minutes in between if I delete a hot photo and re-upload just to be safe. It would be nice if the system locked you out from deleting if it has truly been "picked" and entered screening, even if the user screen doesn't say "entered screening..." (the hypothetical 5 second lag). This seems to indicated the user can delete as long as their screen doesn't show it has "entered screening", 5 seconds or 5 minutes, so long as they don't refresh their page. Could be a bug?

    I apologize if this is unnecessary discourse; just trying to figure out exactly how this was able to happen.

    What is the answer to my second question?

    Thanks again, dlowwa!...

  • Steve Rinde - Advice & Pre-screening

    First time posting on forum.
    Question on Double Upload rejection. I recently uploaded a picture into my queue at "hot", then went to my queue and saw it had not "entered screening" yet so I deleted it from queue. About one minute later I uploaded the picture again marked at "hot", went to my queue and it had "entered screening" (the first picture I uploaded was not in the queue). It was not actually a hot photo so it was rejected rightly for that. I was surprised to see my first upload also in my rejections as well though.

    I went on to appeal the photo rejected as "double upload" explaining as I did above, also questioning if there is a lag in the system somewhere that would allow me to delete it and it enter screening. I wasn't looking for it to be accepted on appeal, only removed from my rejection queue. Unfortunately, the appeal was rejected with no explanation regarding my specific scenario, only a link to the double...
