    I giving up with other things so I can fly abroad from time to time. I'm 58 years old, but I flew for the first time after age 40.
    I'm one of old-timers here, but I have only few simple cameras with few simple lenses, the cheapest equipment one can buy.


    This discussion has unfortunately become disrespectful.
    Why did this happen? All in all that I wrote my personal opinion that you should not reject outright photos taken in bad weather.

    Another people wrote similar things, but you personally decided for some reason to respond to me in the way you responded.
    I'm done here.
    All the best.
    There was no personal attack intended, and certainly no disrespect. I was simply trying to say that while it may have been hard for you to do your trip or buy your gear, there are so many others who can't even afford a camera and lens, let alone to travel outside their country, or even hometown. Just asking for a little perspective so you don't let JP's acceptance of your photos dictate how much you enjoy your hobby or your travels.

    I enjoy my hobby, regardless of the photos, whether they are accepted or rejected.

    I've just spent three days in Beijing hoping to get some nice shots. Unfortunately the weather here isn't always the best and east asia is generally having some pretty grim weather at the moment anyway. Finally managed to see the Air Koryo Antonov that had eluded me on my previous visits and some other airlines that we don't get to see in Shanghai. The photos that I have are, what you would say, for the personal collection. This is all part of the fun that is photography and hoping for better weather at Heathrow next month . Thank you to the jetphotos team for all their hard work and wishing us all some good luck on our next visits to an airport.

    With options like flickr and facebook you still can share all pics you have taken without the need for any screening process. Imho this should always be your first option, with an acceptance at jp.net being just an added bonus. And the main part is enjoying the time spent at the airport.

    Some people think they have to upload every picture on JP and canīt keep it for their "private" collection. I uploaded also some terrible photos many years ago. So shame on me
    As seahawk said there are many other opportunities to share the photos.
    So I am still hoping the screeners will keep a closer look on bad weather (quality) photos to reduce the queue.

    I am now a little bit discouraged about uploading photos to jetphotos site. I checked the guidelines, and I decided not to upload a lot of photos I had in my archive. However, I had a few photos that I thought could be acceptable, but they got rejected too. Sincerely, I can not see why they are flawed, even looking to the examples in the guideline thread, and even if the rejection reasons have been explained.

    Maybe some more comprehensive tutorial on how to address the quality issues in order to meet the website quality standards would be helpful, I don't know...

    These are the photos I did not expect could be rejected:

    Ηi Sergio,

    as of the 1st pic, a good way to avoid JPG artefacts is to save them at the maximum quality. At Photoshop (CS or whatever) File-> Save As-> JPG and at the dropdown menu, choose Quality 12 (the maximum value) and Progressive Scans 5.

    The 2nd pic. Yes, the mountain is part of the pic but the sky above it , is not. So try to crop it better, with less sky visible

    Thank you, flying Doc.

    I always save jpgs with quality 12 (after having done all the postproduction work on the RAW file and, rarely, some other adjustement in CS6). I have also read the tip and trics thread and other threads, but I still do not understand exactly how are the quality standards of this website. In fact, even now I'm not able to see the jpg artefacts of pic 1... It is MY fault, mind you, but it is anyway frustrating not to understand completely what is going on. I never had such issues with landscape photography.

    I'll crop differently pic2, I'm understanding that aviation photos follow different rules if compared with other kinds of photography. Probably, I underestimated how strict are the composition rules explained in the guideline thread.

    Thank you again for your help.
