Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

Hi guys,

A friend sent me these photos and wants to know if they are edited correctly, do they stand a chance of making it?

As I don't know anything about photography, I'd thought I'd ask for the professionals opinion! Big grin







Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Smile

Thanks,
-Gofly

Hi there,

the planes are definitely way too far away, plus the quality is definitely not up to par here. I don't know if the weather ruined those shots, but they are not going to make it here.

Cheers,
Sebastian

Too far away and quality isnt good enough for anet.
Oh and just out of interest, do you know what camera your friend uses?

A very good thread to illustrate a point. Being able to upload comes down to three main things:

1. Original image quality
2. Motivation, information
3. Edit methods and quality

If the original shot isn't good enough, then progressing to the edit shouldn't be attempted.

But there are ways to make sure your shots are fairly good to start off with.

1. Know your airport!
a) Where does the sun move? (Keep it behind you)
b) Where are the best spots to take shots from?
c) What lenses will I require from each spot?

2. Know your equipment
a) What settings are required?
b) Which spots can my equipment work from and which spots won't work?

In this case it appears as if weather and the equipment were working against the photo. But even with the most basic equipment, there is an ability to get a shot.

With the smaller digitals like this one, getting closer to the action (because of zoom limitations) and with sunny weather (because shooting above ISO 100 on some of these cameras isn't worth the extra noise) - will work in favour of the equipment.

When the time comes, an upgrade of equipment will help expand ones horizons and make the hobby a little (or a lot) easier.
