    If these are halos I really don't understand how they got there. D-lighting was off as it always has been since I discovered it is the indirect cause of a once frequent bad post-processing rejection, the Shadows/Highlights tool was not used, and the halos are much wider than the sharpening radius.
    Some other setting in your processing is causing it (Clarity perhaps), although I wouldn't say they're strong enough to necessarily cause a rejection.

    Default Would this cause a Vignetting rejection?

    I uploaded this photo a while back. While it was in the queue I ran through the tools used to check the photo and the top left corner was discolored. I then deleted it from the queue. But then I realized that it's most likely just part of a steam cloud sneaking into the photo. Geneva Steel is a little ways north of Provo airport and it always has a steam cloud coming of the top. As I recall it was very big and billowy that day and I mentioned it to my Dad when we were driving in its shadow. When I checked Google maps the angle works and it could be a steam cloud. So I'm wondering if that would still cause a rejection.

    When equalized in photoshop you can hardly see it but it really stands out if equalized in the queue.

    Many thanks.

    Steam clouds look pretty much different, in this case the vignette is the more notorious reason

    Default Two Questions For You

    I just had this photo rejected today.
    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=7288314
    I remember selecting night shot for sure and I believe I selected airport overview but I'm not entirely sure. If there are other categories that should be selected I would love to know which ones. With the cropping rejection, dimensions are 1280x1024. I remember photos I've previously uploaded similar to that ratio being fine as far as that rejection. If the size ratio needs to be changed would it be fine if it was off center to get the tower fully in the frame depending on the crop?

    Now for question #2
    The attached photo has one thing I'm really worried about. If you look at the right winglet it looks blurred in a bit of an odd way (I call it ghosting) when the rest of the aircraft is sharp. Would this cause a rejection or would it be alright for Jetphotos?Click image for larger version.

    This is not an Airport Overview. Your image is 1280x1024. At 1280pix wide, the maximum allowed height is 960 (a 4:3 ratio, which your image is well outside of).

    Winglet should not be an issue. Image is soft and a bit dark overall, however.

    Default About the Crop

    Hello,
    I need some help judging which crop is better.

    The first photo is centered vertically with a lot of dead space, especially at the bottom. The second photo was cropped closer to the rule of thirds and looks better in my opinion. My problem is that I'm not sure if cropping it closer to the rule of thirds for this angle would cause a rejection.

    Thanks for the help,
    Michael

    Default 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 anything wrong lighting wise? I'm also curious. Because I don't see a registration on this plane, should this be uploaded with the ICAO code of the airport in the registration box?

    A bit too much of the frame is dark for me, but that's just my view. Registration of the aircraft should be used, since it takes up more than half of the frame.

    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 of registration. It's on a stand if that info helps any.

    Unfortunately the onus is on you to have the correct info. I have no idea where the image was taken, nor do I really feel inclined to spend a whole lot of time digging around for it, when you were the one standing next to it. As I said, this does not qualify as an airport overview, so you can stop suggesting the ICAO code.

    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.
