Hey good attempt.

It has a fair amount of grain in the trees and grass plus it is a tad soft.

With a bit more work it may do ok.

Good attempt - I'd be pleased with that regardless of it being accepted or not.

Panning is a very hard thing to master, you have done a good job here but as mentioned the photo suffers from a good deal of noise (grain) and is far too soft, it also need lightening up and some contrast.

I think it's one for the personal collection but don't be down about it your certainly on the way to nailing a good panning photo. I think also a little sunshine helps, but often that can't be helped. Good effort.

What's with this one? I think it's a bit soft but when applying mor USM the Boeing markes tend to look oversharpened.

Georg if you sharpen using a new layer you can the erase the over sharpened bit like the titles and boeing stamp and still keep the rest of the photo nice and sharp. Try it  Smile

Second is a much better attempt, but the jaggies around the top of the cockpit windows needs to go. Other than that, good shot.

If it gets too difficult to edit, try a smaller size like 1024.

The second one is better, but it's generally oversharpened. If using more USM makes it look oversharpened, use less.  Smile Or use it differently. Try a really high number like 400%, coupled with a really small radius, like .2 or .3 .

Never tried that layer thing as it's too complicated for me. Time to sit down and learn more about Photoshop.

I always use threshold of 0.2

May try this.

Thanks guys.

It's quite simple (has to be if I can do it) just go to the "layer" drop down menu and click on duplicate layer, do your sharpening and then use your erasor tool to 'rub out' the jaggies and then in the layer drop down select "merge layers" and your done.If you need any further help give me a shout  Smile

Here's my humble attempt at it.Im sure there are people far better than me that will scoff at it,but the sharpening is much better. It is suffering a little form noise or grain which maybe dropping it down to 1024 wide will help erase.

Here it is.

I haven't done it before and will also ask in a German Photoshop Forum how to use it in a propper way.

Working with my unsharpened pic what do I do step by step?

1. duplicate layer?
2. sharpen
3. eraser
4. merge

or in other order?

Thanks for your help!

Georg

Ok, using photoshop CS2 I do basically the following. I first sharpen the image once at the following settings:
amount 200%
Radius 0.2
Thrshold 0
then I create a duplicate layer using the "layer" drop down menu and selecting "duplicate layer" and pressing ok to the "background layer" already chosen for you.

Then I sharpen the image using the same settings as above until I am happy that it is nice and sharp.This will creat jaggies in certain areas, especially door frames, titles and wing leading edges etc.I then select my erasor tool from the main tool menu (looks like an erasor you used at school) and simply rub out the jaggies.

Once this is done to my satisfaction I then in the "layer" drop down menu select "flatten Image" and your done.Hope this is ok for you.

This is what works for me and has given me a great acceptance percentage, I hope it works well for you too.

(Phew I better get a RR for this  praise   duck  )

Thanks for the answers. I reworked the picture, but I think it is not better than the first one.
The quality is really very low.

Hello!

What do you think about this panning shot. I made this photo two months ago in AMS. Thanks for your help!

Not so much panning but a nice shot. Only problem the jaggies. Try editing with layers like Globalpics pointed out very good. I'm also not very sure about leveling.
