Hi!

Got this pic rejected for soft. What could I do to improve it? Should I sharpen it a bit more? http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20060131_35-hbjmb-zrh-0121.jpg

It's quite complicated as it is hard to focus on a special point as it is a very long place, the cabin of a 340!

Thanks for any help! Rgds,
Philippe

Hi Philippe,

I'm guessing the 'soft' element to the shot is the seats in the foreground and also the overhead panel at the top of the photo, both of which are out of focus.

I can't help you regards what to do with it, or how to shoot in the cabin, as I've never taken shots of an aircraft interior.

Regards,

Tim.



Obviously missing something....

I would hazard a guess at you setting the lowest apeture as you can being in a low light situation therefore your DOF has been reduced a touch.

Mmm as Linco said, the DOF is all wrong. Next time try a wider aperture (say F8-F10) and you will get much better results

I don't really know in what way the DOF (Depth of field) is concerned here, but I would also say a wider aperture would have helped you here. F10 should do the job here.

Cheers,
Sebastian

With an F-stop of 9 or 10, you will probably want to bring your tripod next time as well.



Slower traffic, keep right

Depth of field (DOF) is the distance wherein objects are in focus

Actually the DOF is concerned here, a F4 would create a shallow DOF (as in the image taken by PipoA380) whilst F10 as you suggest would bring everything into focus

Wow, I guess you really don't...

Wider? He would then loose even more DOF????

If he was using say a 100mm lens and was focusing on the seat 25 feet away using f22....only stuff from 15.9 to 26. 9 feet would be acceptable.

Using a 50mm @f22, focusing 20 ft out would allow things within 9.8feet to infinity to remain acceptable.

Thanks for the link Jeff! Very helpful in that the calculator lets you select individual camera models and lens combinations.
