(Reposting this here because its been 10 days and no reply in the other forum)

I have a few night photos that I would like to upload here but I am not sure how strict APN screeners are about out of focus parts. Because I was shooting down at F/4 and 1/15th a second to keep the ISO in a usable range, There are parts of the aircraft that are not in focus (see the attached photo for example). I was wondering if that is okay or would it be rejected. After looking around on the site, I noticed a few shots that were accepted or uploaded like:

These have parts that are out of focus or blurry but still made it onto the site. Is there a chance that photos I have like the one attached would be okay to have accepted or would it be rejected?

Thanks for the help

Hello Rohan

The plane itself is alright in sharpness considering the conditions and settings.

But The picture is a little dark in my opinion.

All I can say is that you try and upload it. As I said sharpness should be alright but it's a little dark.

Hope I could help :)

Don't know if you're aware, but all pictures you shown as an example were uploaded by full members (of course the photos could have been uploaded before the authors became FM's, but I'm not sure) so possibly there was no screening on those.

You can always try, looks fine by me, but I'd recommed resizing it to 1280px before uploading. Good luck ;)
