    I think it would be neat to be a screener, but I don't think they're looking for volunteers to be screeners at the moment.

    This isn't backlit. And as far as I know, there is no way for half the aircraft to be backlit in a photo.

    Agreed. I'm really impressed that they've kept the queue shorter than two weeks all this time.

    Gotcha. I'll do some more digging and see if I can find it. I do have pictures of all the writing on the airplane so hopefully that will help me. Thanks for all the help.

    Ok. There are only two numbers on the airplane though: TR 653, and 16653. When I google those numbers I get options for addresses and Scoot flights. That's why I'm thinking airport ICAO code instead...

    There is a large section of the histogram very close to touching the left edge of the histogram, indicating that there are a lot of very dark shadows. Not quite solid blacks, but very dark. This...

    These aren't night shots. The shadows aren't long and there is no red-orange glow.

    I'd leave the entire gear door in if you can. Not sure if the gear door alone would cause a rejection though.

    Silhouette Prescreening

    I've got this photo that I just edited. I'm worried mainly about the contrast. The histogram clings to the left and right edges. I don't see any way to get around this with a silhouette. Is there...

    How can a photo be blurry and oversharpened at the same time? If the subject is blurry, then there is no way to get it to the point where it is oversharpened.

    #2 in the original post also looks backlit. I'm not looking at the photos as closely as I would if they were my own, because I can't, but the second batch looks fine to me.

    The first photo is centered vertically with a lot of dead space, especially at the bottom. The second photo was cropped...

    Most of the grass in there is covering less than half the tire, which I believe would not cause a rejection. However, in your case, there are some outliers that are much longer and blocking the whole...

    Like LX-A343 said the size ratio on photo 3 needs to be fixed. Photo 1 also looks a tad bit dark. I'm not looking at a histogram, nor am I a screener so I can't say for certain.

    If you ever have a problem like that again there's a great thread with a process to get rid of halos caused by the shadows/highlights tool. It doesn't fix halos caused by other things though.

    The one on the far right and the one in the middle look the best. I don't notice anything really contributing to an overexposure rejection in the histogram though.

    Yeah the size ratio looks off. Yours looks like a 1x1. If you cropped it to 4x6 or 16x9 that should work. That's all I notice. I'm not equalizing it or looking at a histogram, nor am I screener. So I...
