Hello everyone

I ploaded this pic and it got rejected with the reason "soft"

In my opinion it's quite sharp. That's why I chose to upload it

Thanks for any help.

Kind regards,

Nice photo. Possibly around the nose gear it could be improved but overall a very nice photo. I wish they were more specific as well..."soft around the wing tip area" or something like that would focus your attention to the exact area they are concerned about. In some cases it is the entire photo so "soft" works. Good luck.

The wing span of an A330 is about 60m. This way the wingtip is about 25m far away from the fuselage. It is just a supposition but depending on the aperture you have set maybe you didn´t reach the adequate depth of the field required to the whole image get sharp focus.

It is a beautiful image, the wingtip and engine are on focus but the front landing gear, the numbers 3355, the skyteam logo and even the DELTA lettering are not really tack sharp. When it is our work we get disappointed by receving a no go but most of times - after a deep breath - they help us to see our work in different perspective and to persuit better results. Best regards!

Thank you Jetz and Ricardo for the reply and the help.

I will pay more attention to that next time when I upload.

Big thanks and have a nice day :)
