Post screening Solro

Tue Aug 09, 2016 9:32 pm

Hello guys for one more time.

I just had this image rejected for these reasons:

http://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/1/1/6/3912611-v2455637ae1a-11jpg

- Blurry
- Overexposed
- Personal
- Soft

The Screener left a comment regarding this photo:
"Portions of the AC are soft / blurry."

I 'm OK with the overexposed but I can find anything blurry.

I uploaded a corrected (almost oversharpened) version. Does it lok OK???

Another rejection

This image:
http://cdn-www.airliners.net/photos/airliners/1/0/4/3919401.jpg?v=v49328684f50
was rejected for:
- Noise
- Quality
- Soft

While the taxiway seems to be noisy that's exactly how it looks like in reality.
I can't see any softness too.

I uploaded a new edit. Does it look acceptable?

Photo 1 (Cessna): The tail is blurry in both photos. The overexposed is fixed in your re-edit. Also seems heathazed too.
Photo 2 (Nordwind): It looks soft/blurry/OOF. Insufficient Quality for that size. Not sure if this one can be fixed.

Thanks Kas! I uploaded both at 1200px!

Can anybody give some prescreening on this Transaero 747?

It's the first time to edit a photo like this, so any view and advice will be highly appreciated!

I opened both photos in Photoshop and reduced them to 1200px and the above still stands. But there could be that quality error from the photo corner. If you can link the 1200px versions from another upload source, we can compare and come to a final decision.

I downloaded both photos from the photo corner and they are absolutely the same with the ones I uploaded! So, the problem with the photo-corner is fixed!

These are the 2 1200px versions:

http://cdn-www.airliners.net/photos/airliners/7/3/2/3936237.jpg?v=v41589baf669

I sharpened the 747 and uploaded at 1200px. Btw, does it look allright in terms of contrast, exposure and motive?

Sorry, but it still looks blurry. No amount of sharpening will fix that. Motive is fine, the underside is a bit dark though. Contrast looks ok too.

Hello again,

I need prescreening for this "cloudy" photo. I am mostly concerned about the contrast of the photo.

Thanks in advance!

Contrast seems OK to me. However, the image looks a bit soft and almost blurry (towards the rear of the aircraft).

There is no blurriness at all at any part of the original. A little more sharpening was beneficial!
Thanks...

A little kick of sharpening on the fuselage would be good yes, but otherwise the image looks fine.

Hello, it has a slight feeling of high in frame, maybe because of the position of the wings. Not sure if this can cause a rejection. The left propeller (in front) looks a bit oversharpened to me. Greets

Merry Christmas (belated) and a Happy New Year to you as well! The front of the aircraft looks a bit soft. You also an orange cone obstructing the main landing gear (avoidable by shooting from a different angle). Some leniency may be allowed depending on how rare this airframe is in the database.

Thanks for your responses!
Unfortunately the cone is present at all frames. The last photo of this a/c is dated back in 2010, with the same basic livery but without the odd bits of paint that are present in my image. So, I hope this can compensate the cone.
I sharpened a bit to make the front more clear and I brought the plane a little down. This is the new frame.

This image was rejected for overexposed, contrast and blurry.
http://cdn-www.airliners.net/photos/airliners/3/0/0/4135003.jpg?v=v4df4f5c35b5
I tried to fix them and I re-uploaded. Is this passable at this size or I have to consider something smaller?

C160: If I didn't know any better I'd think it's graphic art :o But looks passable.
A321: New edit is indeed better and looks alright to me (although the windowline may benefit from some selective sharpening).

Hello! It's been a while...

I had 2 rejections lately that puzzled me a bit.

This SAS A320neo was rejected for low contrast and underexposed (after an HQ1)
http://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/9/2/7/4315729.jpg?v=v4f3f5041dbe

I tried to fix it but the result looks worse in my eyes.
http://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/7/9/9/4328997.jpg?v=v4f8aa871fd2
Should I leave this in the queue or appeal the other?

This Ryanair 738 was rejected as blurry. I can see a minor softness at parts but no bluriness.

SAS: The re-edit is definitely an improvement to me, so I would leave that one in.
RYR: The nose & cockpit do look a little blurry, but otherwise looks fine.

Thanks a lot Kas!

I tried to add some selective sharpness on the Ryanair image. I think that the problem is gone!

The Ryan Air still looks a bit sift to me and could use some contrast. I would also try it at a smaller size (say 1024 pixels). Quality is not there for 1600 pix.
The Condor is under exposed and is showing some noise: both fixable IMO

Thank you Jehan!
I uploaded the Ryanair at 1200!

This the corrected version of the Condor. Do you see it passable?
http://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/3/8/7/4330783.jpg?v=v4c0d23f44e4

Another rejction that I think is questionable is this:
http://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/9/9/8/4328899.jpg?v=v4c4566c5bf8

- Oversharpened
- Personal Message
- Quality

The Screener left a comment regarding this photo:
"better smaller"

I see that it is oversharpened, especially on the titles. The other "problem" could be the reflections all over the leading edge of the wing, I can do anything about them.
Should I reduce sharpening and upload at the same size?
I also edited another frame of the sequence, but I prefer to see the first one uploaded.

The Condor 757 still looks underexposed. I checked the historgram and it shows that you can increase the brightness a lot more, This being taken at the "Blue Hour" allows for a brighter image than if it were taken during hours of full darkness. I would also boost the contrast a bit as well as apply some sharpening to the aircraft. Finally, I would select the areas in the deep shadows and apply a pass of noise reduction. PM me your email address and I'll send you a quick edit that I did. Can't guarantee acceptance, but I think it is passable.

The Royal Flight 757 definitely lacks quality for 1600 pixels. I don't see oversharpening. On the contrary, the image looks soft at this size.

I agree that the Condor can be much brighter. Plus another pass of sharpening for the fuselage.

In my opinion the 757 doesn't look that bad at 1600px. The windowline looks a bit sharp, but looks nice other than that. Should definitely make it at around 1400px.

Do you think that it can make it at 1600px after I fix sharpening? Now I am thinking to re-edit this frame and kick this out of the queue, which is inferior in terms of composition.

The Condor was brightened enough with the valuable help of jelpee! Here it is:

Maybe, but I wouldn't gamble it since it already got rejected for that size. I would give it a go at 1400px.

The condor is oversharpened and could perhaps still be a bit brighter. Tough shot to edit though, I'll give you that.
