    Default Pre-screening guidance

    Getting my feet wet here at JetPhotos and testing the limitations of what is acceptable. Here is a shot with this as the rejection criteria
    • Bad Composition (bad framing / aircraft not centered)
    • Obstructing Objects / Foreground Clutter
    • Undersharpened (Soft)


    Is there any way to get this into the Database or is this not worth trying to fix. I was centring the nose of the aircraft for the middle.

    Thank you for looking.

    Dear Craig, even though Softness and Centering are easy to fix in any editing programm, unfortunatelly the tow truck obstructs the right engine and this is something that cannot be fixed.

    Rejected again for softness, which I thought I corrected, is it really that bad? Thank you for looking.

    Just slight softness, imho. If the original is sharp, should be an easy fix.

    Thanks, I didn't want to overdo it.

    Oh crap, noticed my sharpening was set to Gaussian blur removal, rather than Lens blur.

    Guidance for this one. Rejection : Bad Color (Over/Under Saturation, Hue) Working this ramp for a number of years, the concrete in late afternoon always gives an odd tone but what am I missing?

    While not very strong, there is a slight red/magenta hue to the image (fuselage on Rouge should be white). Borderline chances if you wanted to appeal; if not, a slight adjustment should be all that is needed.

    Thank you dlowwa, will edit soon.

    Now this is an unedited shot, but I am not sure how it should be cropped for acceptance. Should I include the "Lufthansa" name in the shot or just include the forward entrance door? Or are nose shots unacceptable?

    Thank you for looking.

    It's a subjective thing, so do whatever is most aesthetically pleasing to you.

    Plenty of nose shots on the DB already.

    Likely a personal decision for the crop; white balance also looks a bit warm.
