Topic: A Picture Of Mine - Garbage Or Not?

Hi all,

I recently added this picture into the upload queue:
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/OS324OELAG1.jpg

Now, I'm not sure if it meets or not A.net standards, so I'm wondering if I should pull it out from the queue or not. It may not be a very special shot, but the OS 342 has been very hard to catch for me this summer (flies in only on Saturdays, cloudy evenings, 8+ pm arrival, etc...) so I'd be happy if it could get online..

From my perspective, I like the overall composition of the picture. Thing is I wonder if the logo and the "Austrian" title are too much sharpened. Is it acceptable?Also I was looking at it, and thought the picture might be a bit flat (contrast)?

Any thoughts? Should I rework it from the original file?

Thanks.

Alex

Hi,

Well I'm no photo screener whatsoever, but I'd say it might have a good chance of getting accepted, quality wise that is. The Austrian logo has a few jaggies, as has the wing root, but I've seen photos with much more jaggies that got accepted.

I'd say a chance of 70% it will be accepted.

Greets,
Ivan

It certainly isn't garbage. I think it has a good chance of getting accepted.

Cheers

Its a good photo but the jaggies are a small problem though.

Are you familiar with the duplicate layer technique?

Take care

Well the jaggies only depend on whether you are flat screen or LCD maybe?

I praise your attempt at this difficult shot, Alex. But I'm predicting rejection - it looks like you took a slightly soft/out of focus image to start with (notice the registration) and oversharpened it (notice main landing gear, nose wheel door letters). I'm wondering if you had waited for the full side-on shot (main landing gear lined up with your lens), the aircraft would have slowed down a little more and your panning may have been more 'in sync' with the aircraft's motion...?

I don't think it's an editing issue - think the original was just not sharply focused.

Good luck...

To be honest, no..I'm used to select a portion of the aircraft and inverse the selection so I can sharpen only the parts I want. It seems to work for me so far... Maybe I should have a close rlook into that!

Yeah, I have some side-on shots of it, when the plane was almost idle on the runway, and the quality out of the camera is slightly better. You're right when you suppose the quality isn't the best straight out of the camera (for the shot I uploaded that is). I just thought the shot I uploaded would be more interesting since you see the tower and some other details you wouldn't see in the side-on shot.

Thanks for the help and advices guys. I appreciate that.

Certainly not garbage .
Like the others have said a little is needed to get it to Anet standard but certainly worthy of an upload.
Cheers

Hi Fergul,

I just ran into a little jaggie problem myself after resizing a photo of a Varig 777 at FRA from 6.3MP to the usual 1024x683. Jaggies started to show up at the leading edge flap. I have no idea whatsoever how to get rid of these guys. I remembered reading somewhere about that duplicate layer thing but I couldn't find it anywhere. Could you, or somebody else please fill me in on that. A link to where it is explained will totally do.

Cheers,
Sebastian

Thanks for the quick help Fergul. If you want to convert a .doc to a .pdf you will need to have Adobe Acrobat installed, not just the Acrobat Reader. Then you should automatically have a printer installed, with which you will be able to print your .doc to a .pdf file. I will check on my computer though since I don't have Acrobat on this one.

Cheers,
Sebastian

Ok Fergs,

I just checked on my computer and you will be able to either do it the way I told you in the above post. BTW the printer is called Adobe PDF. Or when I open up my Microsoft Word, there are three buttons in the upper right corner, where one of them says "convert to Adobe PDF". It looks just like the symbol for an Adobe PDF file. But the most important thing would be for you to have Adobe Acrobat installed. Hope this helps,

Cheers,
Sebastian

Bad to say Alex, but with the new improved rules for pics acceptance here on A.net sure it won't meet the standards....  Sad

Thanks Sebastian,  Smile

A nice chap from down under, Chris, aka, StealthZ came to the rescue and converted it for me. I will have to get the full version of Acrobat some time, thanks Chris  bigthumbsup

I have to admit, I can't remember if I have ever had that problem with down sizing.

Take care

Many thanks for the link Fergul. I'll have a close look into that.

Yah thought the same, I edited and submitted another picture, which I think is better quality wise.

You can also use FreePDF instead, which is free (as the name itself says). It can be downloaded here: http://www.shbox.de/freepdf.htm
