I dont get why people allways want to use Neatimage as afterwork on their picture. Neatimage is for shots , which have been taken with high ISO !!! Thats it, not more or less. In my opinion as soon as you use Neatimage on a normal shot, the picture gets ruined.

Nice shots you have there!
From what I see from you photos, I think the problem could be your camera. Like Eduard already said, there is a huge amount of chromatic abberation.
If you want you can send me an original, and I will try to see what I can get out of the photo.
Robin, with DSLRs I think Neatimage is not needed only with high ISOs. But I owned a Sony DSC-F717 and even at 100 ISO the picture was filled with grain and I also needed to use Neatimage to get the grain out.

I fail to see why people even need to use Neatimage for aviation photography. As Robin states it should be used only for things like indoor sports photography at high ISO's. Thats the only time i use it and its very good when used for the correct subject.

You can see the amount of grain, and this was at 100 ISO !! At 200 ISO there is lots more. I don't know how other consumer cameras are but if they are as bad as my old Sony then I understand why it's used a lot.
Now with my Canon 20D set at 800 ISO, I still don't get that much grain as my old Sony at 100 ISO.

Quoting Sfilipowicz (Reply 3): If you want you can send me an original, and I will try to see what I can get out of the photo.
Thank for the offer Steven! BTW, you and I have must be standing next to each other on July 16th; I shot exactly the same planes at 36L in AMS that day.
Robin and Simon, I agree with Steven and Ian. My (non-DSLR) Dimage Z3 is producing as much noise as in Stevens example. I don't even think of shooting with a higher ISO than 50. Though I enjoy the Z3 very much, it has certainly its limitations.

Quoting Flyfisher1976 (Reply 12): Too many people that visit these forums seem to submit to the theory that if it's not complicated or expensive it's not good.
never said that or intend that ..... , I stay with my theory: Neatimage is for high ISO settings - reducing the grain. So, if you camera produces grain allready with low ISO settings - fine . than also use Neatimage.
