Hi,

Last tuesday, CS-TEX, the A310 that features the new livery of TP, made a small promotion flight accompanied by a film crew on an helicopter.

I was lucky enough to capture both the 310 and the heli on a single frame... but the camera misread the light and over-exposed the photo. I've dabbled a
little in PS and upoloaded... got rejected for a deserved BADEXPOSURE.

Since this is one of my favorite shots, maybe some of you with more PS skills can help me and see if it can be saved?

Luckly my other shot got accepted (sorry for the self-gloss... couldn't resist as I love these new colours)!

Try "image adjustment" then "selective color".Change the color to white in the top box. Then move the bottom "Black" slider as required to the right until as much of the overexsposure is reduced.

It don't work for every photo with this problem but it has saved a few of my overexsposed photo's.

My fear is Simon that it may be rejected the next time for that.

I've reworked photos only to be rejected for another thing like bad common or something else.

Anyway Good luck Luis, hope you get it in.

Thank you all for your support! This forum is great!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I've followed Simon advice and (I think) I've managed to salvage the shot. Also, Fergul was right and so I went ahead and aplied a little extra USM to the tail section. After that, I reuploaded it.

Even if it doesn't make into the DB, I am really happy with it and think it has improved quite a bit.

And now I keep my fingers crossed for the screeners opinion!  Smile

Regards,
Luis

Thats a heck of a lot better, well done  Big thumbs up
Please don't take this the wrong way, just trying to be helpfull here. My only worry is the jaggies on the trailing edges of the flaps on the right wing, other than that its a massive improvement. It could make it.

Take care

Hi,

No prob, glad you could help me!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
I've noticed those jaggies also (after I've sent it  Insane ) ... I'll give it another try at night (I'm at work now, not much time for editing  Smile/happy/getting dizzy ), and if it gets better, I'll re-submitt it.

Thanks again for your comments.

Regards,
Luis

Very nice pic, Luis, I'd love to see it in the DB.

If I were you I'd work on those jaggies and be a little less aggressive on sharpening in the registration area, a bit of halos around there IMHO.

I suppose you know about the technique, but just in case...(see reply 4)
