    Hi, I've recently been struggling with getting my shots accepted and was hoping if anyone could point me in the right direction, here are a few:

    Hello Ermak

    I'm not screener but I can bring you some advice

    For the first : the buildings lean to the right and it is filled by the pole which leans naturally to the right. Redress and the "horizon will be acceptable. the nose lacks sharpening

    For second: the sun is on the left and slightly opposite? It darkened the fuselage. Think to take the photos with the sun behind

    for the third : the photo is unbalanced. On this genre, you have to center the fuselage backwards.

    Regards

    Olivier

    Hi,

    #1 Soft/Blurry, Noise/Grain, Horizon
    #2 Cut off, Soft (tail region), Center (too low), probably contrast
    #3 Soft (left half of the Plane)
    #4 too little contrast, probably soft (left side of the plane)
    #5 Soft (left side of the plane), Over Processed (halos around aircraft), Contrast

    Have a nice evening!
    Best Regards from Germany,
    Julian S.​

    Hi Julian, First of all thanks for the advice!

    It seems though as my lens makes the edges (which are usually tails and winglets) soft, as seen in the 3rd and 4th pictures that i sent you, however it seems no matter how much sharpening i apply the part still stays soft. Maybe you could give me a tip?

    Regards,
    Dmitrii

    Hi Dimitrii,

    yes, looks like the lens caused the problem. Which lens have you used for the pictures?
    Im asking because my Sigma 18-200 have the same problems, not so strong but also visible in 1200px sized shots. This is the reason why i dont use this lens anymore.
    The softness can not "repaired" with too much sharpening as it is way too strong.
    Is the softness only visible on the left side or on all edges. If it is only on the left, you can try to center the plane on the right side and crop the softness out. But im really not sure if this works as i dont know the dimensions of the distortion/softness. Or you can try to use a smaller aperture (f8 or in strong light f10).
    Probably some other forum members have good ideas too.

    Hope this helps a bit and have a nice Saturday

    Hi Julian, thanks again for the reply, it seems that it happens randomly on all edges. Lens is a Canon EF 70-200 1:4 L IS USM.

    While we're at it, I got some new shots today and would also like some help with them.

    Default White spots?

    Hi everyone, Today I noticed quite a strange thing: When increasing exposure on some of my shots (iso 200) i get these weird white spots:

    Strange thing is, it doesn't seem to be a camera issue since i've taken multiple shots in the same location in same conditions, and sometimes there are no spots at all, sometimes they're very visible like on the 737 above, and sometimes they're barely visible.

    Does anyone have an idea of what it could be and how to fix it?

    Regards, Dmitrii

    Excuse my unawareness

    It could be dust or hot pixels?

    Looks like rain or snow, unless you're talking about something else.

    Nope, absolutely no rain or snow, just a dry cloudy day

    I think I got it, it could've been fluff since in spring we get lots and lots of those flying around, question is, would it be accepted that way?

    Those photos are too poorly lit to be acceptable, but the debris in the sky is not necessarily a reason for rejection.

    I know neither the photos nor the editing are the best, but I'm always trying to improve so if you could point out what is wrong with either the photos themselves or the editing would be great

    Hi,
    Framing on #4 & #5 will not be accepted. Both are cutting off components like the nose and stabilizer. They look awkward too.
