I have these 4 photos currently in the upload queue.









Of the 4, which are the most likely to be accepted and what require more work on them.

If you are asking for that advice then people need to see the full size they were uploaded at.  Smile

Post bigger versions of the photos... The quality we are seeing could be much better than what you uploaded... Although now I can realise that you uploaded at 640px wide, am I wrong? In case I am not, they will be rejected...


Gripped 7D + Sigma 10-20mm + 17-40L + 50mm f/1.8 II + 70-200mm f/4L IS + EF 400mm f/5.6L + 580EX II

OK I'm no expert but...

1. Looks backlit and slightly blurred/out of focus/soft.

2. Also blurred/out of focus/soft.

3. Blurry/soft and the aircraft is too low in the frame. It's also dark.

4. I like this one but it's soft again and looks a bit bright 'cloudy'.

Don't worry though, they are decent attempts for a newbie. Do you use Photoshop? Search the forum for editing advice, there are some good workflow tips. Taking good aircraft shots is huge learning curve and you can take it to whatever level you desire. Practice and experience are essential but if you really want to get there I am sure you will.  Smile

If those are in the queue now I would take them out but don't let it put you off - it will improve your knowledge for next time.  Wink

Cheers - that's the sort of advice I was looking for.
I've only had PS for a few weeks and am still trying to work out what I am doing with it.

I think I've lost some of the IQ in shot 1 when I've tried to lighten it. The sun was off to the right hand side of the pic, and it was taken around 6:30pm with maybe 3hrs of daylight remaining. Shot 3 was around the same time.

Thanks again.

You must always be wary of where the sun is when taking photo's.  Smile

As I say, there are already many discussions in this forum about using photoshop. If you search hopefully there will be something there that helps you.
