Airliner screening

Wed Nov 16, 2016 4:01 pm

Dear users.

I have sent 12 photos to and all of them have been rejected for invalid reasons. For example this one the say it was:

Here's why your photo was rejected:
- Blurry
- Noise

I have been a photographer for many years with investments on camera and lenses for large amounts of money.

The screeners say that this photo was "noisy" and "blurry" . With camera settings at: Exposure 1/1000, F/8, ISO 100, Canon 7D, Lens Canon 70-200 IS USM II, how it could be noisy and blurred? Please explain.

For reference, here is the full quality version you uploaded: ... 09451e7b4b
It's blurry in general, but especially noticeable at the nose section and tail. As for your other photos, they were correctly rejected.
And to be franki, I don't understand why you uploaded the photos that were screened on November 8-10, as they should have been quite obvious rejections.

The shadows are pretty noisy. To me, it looks like it's been taken in quite harsh lighting, then over-processed in order to produce something approaching acceptable.

In my opinion , the nose and the windows are pretty blurry . Noise in the aircraft is pretty remarkable.
