Usually I only ask for help after rejections come along that I don't understand, but for these photos I feel like I am out of my element. I just started shooting towards the sun the other day to get something different, and I'd like to know if these have a chance. Comments and constructive criticism are appreciated. Thanks.

I'd sharpen the top one some more.. and the bottom one, maybe saturate is a little more. Otherwise, i'd absolutely upload those!

Very nice shots too!

Hello again Matt.

I love these shots. But I think you have a few issues with them. There looks to be heat haze around the edges of the plane in the first one, plus a bit of dead space at the top of the frame. Also I am not sure about the general composition of the image as it stands.

For the second - a lovely photo - there are jaggies on the diagonals of the pylons and it looks like there could be a bit of sharpening issues around the plane. But you really need to work at that one - really beautiful.

If you would like me to have a look at the original to see what I can come up with, feel free to send it along.

Good luck - sunset shots are some of my favourites.

Paul

Hi Matt,

I'm not so sure about the first one. If you want to upload it, it definitely needs more work. The second one however is just a beautiful shot my friend. Really nice motive, with the red sun. However you still need to post process some more on that one as well. If you do though, they will definitely be among the finest in the db especially that second.

Cheers,
Sebastian

Hey,

In the first one, like Paul, I'm a bit unsure about the composition. I also find that the sun is too bright to work as a backlit photo.

The second photo is great. I love the composition and the "feel" it has. However, it may need a tiny CCW rotation.

Cheers,
Will

The composition of the top one could be improved by taking a hefty slice off the top but I feel that the totally blown out nosewheel makes this terminally bad motive.
If this is your local airport it is worth trying this again with a neutral density filter on, or maybe a polariser(which can have a similar effect) as the frozen props look unnatural too.
Nice shots and remarkably low flare taken straight into the sun.

Yep I agree, they are both fantastic but I really like the second one and feel that it would have the better chance of the two.

Well done!

Thanks Paul! I got your shots and I must say I like them very much. I am going to give yours a go. For everyone here is the image that will go in the queue.
