Screening Assistance

Mon Jan 28, 2019 6:25 pm

Hello all,

I had the following photo rejected for the following reasons:

Image

http://www.airliners.net/user/photo-cor ... to/5380447

    Personal Message
    Quality
    Size
    Soft

I'm still fairly new to photography and editing. Can someone tell me if this photo is salvagable or not by Airliners.net's standards? If I reduce the size, will that make sharpening this photo further unecessary? This shot is at 500mm zoom as not all of us are blessed with up close access.. :D

Also, I'm a little confused about the "personal message" part. I used the following caption:

Caption: The CAG bird from the VMFA-314 "Golden Knights" out of MCAS Miramar, California departing Dallas Love Field.


Thank you!

Dylan

I'm not a screener so can't comment about the softness, but yes, I would reduce the size.
personal message means that the screener has left you a message regarding the photo in your email.

D'oh. Now I feel like an idiot. Thanks for that! It is recommended I modify the picture to a lower resolution.

Resizing did the trick.



Sorry for the waste of a thread! :white:
