How To Correct This

I've decided to seek professional help but it's costing too much so I'll ask you guys instead :-P.

I've been knocking my head on a wall in trying to correct this shot for badcentered.

http://airliners.net/procphotos/rejphoto.main?filename=F-OMEB.jpg

If I trim the excess space under the port wing then it gets rejected for the shot being too small.

If they mean the fuselage isn't centered top-to-bottom then it would mean not cropping the sot and leaving a lot of space under the port wing. In any event it was rejected as bad centered when it was queued like that originally.

So what exactly do they mean by bad centered?? Help me before I lose all my hair.

I am just guessing but I believe to please the screener, you will have to re-crop your picture vertically so winglet to winglet spacing is equal with the picture border. Anyone please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

I would be more concerned with the size. It would look sharper if you kept it at 1000 pixels wide. Also clone out the cmos spot behind the tail.
If you shot it raw you could perhaps make it a bit darker in convertion to save some highlights from blowing.

Marco, when I did that two days ago it got rejected for being too small. Will try that again though.

Jan, it was shot in Raw with -2/3 exposure compensation, I brightened it with photoshop's curve tool, I'll try darkening it a tad - just worried about losing clarity under the wing and within the landing gear if it's too dark. Was actually considering Fred Miranda's LPBatch tool so that I convert it in Breezebrowser as a linear tiff and use LPBatch to bring out the image.

Thanks for the recommendations guys (all help is gladly appreciated).

You can get the darker areas brighter without blowing the highlights by locking the highlights in curves.

Also, 1000 pixels wide is not too small.

Jan,

*blush*

How do I lock the highlights? I know some stuf, but there are still things I am discovering - I only started using curves earlier this week!!!

You just click on the curve in the highlight part top right and let go. Click for a couple of anchors and then click and hold the curve below those points to adjust the darker values.

Thanks for that info Jan - will have another go at this picture when I get home tonight. The curves feature never ceases to amaze me. Saturation, contrast, brightness, colour/color cast correction all in one.
