    That crop doesn't work for me personally, but I can't speak for everyone. If I had to guess, I'd say most likely it would be a cut off/motive rejection.

    I'm sorting out my old photos.

    Would these be ok? I thought about "terminal" for photos 1 and 2; "cabin" for 3 (DPRK crew in a Tu-204) and the plane for 4.

    Most, if not all, would be a motive or obstruction rejection.

    Thank you, dlowwa!

    Wow, this is bad news indeed, I applied the same workflow I used for my photos in ZRH that got accepted, and used a sharper lens this time

    I can easily fix the oversharpen issue, but is the blurry issue fixable in your opinion? I thought I used a good exposure time (1/250 - 1/320)... Too bad.
    Would you also, please, teach me the way you use to check if a photo is blurred? Some of them seemed good to me (not the A380, to be honest).

    Thank you for your patience.

    #5 might not be blurry, but it's hard to tell with the oversharpening. The A380 would have no chance at acceptance (due to obstruction), but in that case the blur is caused by heat haze, and not any technique/hardware problems like the other images.

    Hello dlowwa and crew. Sorry again for not having checked the time yesterday.

    I tried to enhance the workflow, and I saw that one way to lessen the amount of oversharpening and jaggies is not to apply the presharpening before downsizing. What do you think of the photos shown at the bottom of this message? Are they better if compared to the one you had a look the they before yesterday and, btw, are they acceptable for submission?

    Also, do you have a tric to understand if a photo is too much blurry before starting the postproduction? i usually look to the serial numbers and windows, but it does not seem I managed to understand properly if a shot has too much blur

    Thank you in advance for your opinion and suggestions.

    1-2 borderline soft
    3. soft. not sure if cloud or bad edit above titles.
    4. dirty
    5. borderline dark/overprocessed (lines in sky)

    No trick for determining if an image is too soft/blurry, just use my eyes

    Dear dlowwa, with your indications I fixed a lot of issues and I successfully uploaded some photos of the batch. Thank you!

    I have a question regarding this photo that has been rejected:

Views:	27

    The reasons were:
    1. Dark / Underexposed
    2. Categories wrong or missing

    I am going to fix #1, but I do not understand what I have done wrong with #2. Is not an airliner the default category?

    Should be 'Night Shot'.

    For later use: how do you decide if a photo like this one is "night shot" or not?
    Seems to me there is no morning light or else (it was past 11.00 am), and it has been taken within minutes with other photos that have been accepted. Some fo the accepted photos were taken earlier. I can of course flag "night shot" in a later submission, but I'd like to understand how to decide if the category should be flagged or not.

    Thank you for your help.

    As per the upload guide, Night Shot applies to any images where the sun is at a very low angle. Yes, this would then apply to many images taken in northern areas mid-winter that are closer to midday, but in subjective cases like that we generally correct the category for uploaders if there are no other issues. Rejections for category alone are rare, and only happen if there have been repeated issues.

    Thank you for the explanation. I knew upload guide states this for low angle light, but it didn't occur to me that this photo could qualifiy for the case. I will pay attention to this in the future.

    Hello. Would you please check these photos and give advice? Thank you in advance.

    I'm thinking to check "night shot" for everyone

    In your opinion, is the next photo acceptable and which category should I select? (It's Shanghai Pudong before dawn, I thought to upload it as tarmac):

    I'm also checking my old prints and I have found a heli not in the database, is a 10x15 print (quite nice in my opinion) from 1998. Do you have some advice on how to best perform the scan (dpi, etc)? I've searched through the forum and the guidelines, but I do not have found any topic about that. Sorry if I missed it and, again, thank you for your help and your patience.

    Ok for me - I'd put in a small narrative - inc year taken and context, also select vintage if it falls within criteria. regards T

    Thank you for the advice. Could you point me to the "vintage" criteria, since I do not see them in the upload guidelines or in other sticky threads? Also the search button did not help me.
