Hi all,

I was wondering whether I can get some feedback on these three pictures.

(a) I'm worried that it's an "against the sun" shot and the buildings are too dark (even though I particularly like it... notice the ERJ at the left of the picture):

(b) Not sure about motivation:

(c) The engine in the foreground is not really focused. But I don't think it's too distracting.

A few clarifications: I'll clearly remove the copyright notice and, yes, I have larger versions to upload. I scaled them down to be bandwidth friendly.

Any comments / feedback, especially from screeners, will be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!!!

Tony

Without the full-size images it is VERY hard to give feedback, because we cannot make out things like jaggies, sharpness, dust spots, and general quality issues. You need to show the full-size images to get good advice. I'd say to find an online photo client that does not re-size photos and upload there.

If I had to choose based on those samples, I'd say the first one is very good, and the third one would almost definitely be a motive rejection because of the small amount of engine that is showing.

The second one is very good, but looks a little soft and the colors are a little bit flat on my monitor. Some levels adjustments would help.

I understand. I do have a personal WWW site but these will eat all my bandwidth. I was hoping to get comments on motivation / color.

Well, that's the one I'm most worried about!

I was hoping that, given that it's a picture of an airport with a bit of engine, it'd be OK! I've seen other pictures showing only a bit of engine too...

Point taken. I'll play around with it.

Again, thanks!

Hi Tony.

Tis is correct that in some ways it is difficult to give fully informed feedback because of the size.

But that aside, I like number one - if the quality is there in the full sized version I think the motive outweighs the backlit factor. Have you uploaded this one? If so you could link it easily at full size. I think I would upload it in your shoes, though there will be a risk factor. The other landing Embraer is a big plus for the motive.

I agree also with the third that, because you are featuring an airport view from the air, the screeners may be more generous with you about the motive problem of the engine cowling. Had the airfield not been the focus of the shot, the cropped engine would have almost definitely resulted in a motive rejection, but as it is I think it would be worth it - again assuming decent quality. It looks to me from the smaller image that increasing the contrast will help that image.

I'm not sure about the Air Canada shot - some will say it's okay, some will argue there is a bit of 'clutter' - though if course there is bound to be with such a motive.

Cheers.

Paul

Hi Tony,

You will have plenty of time when your pictures are in the queue to ask questions and get feedback from the forum. If the full size would still have quality problems, you can easily pull them from the queue.

PS: I like the first one very much! The second one could use a bit of CW rotation. For the third one, I also have some doubts with only such a small part of the engine visible.

Good luck!

Walter
