Looking for opinion on whether this picture of a B-773 can make it into the database. It was definitely a luck of the draw to get a picture of this B-773 as it made 2 touch & gos in Grand Junction, CO. The aircraft was suppose to do the approaches at some other airport, but due to weather it came to Grand Junction. Nothing like clearing it for approaches and snapping the pictures at the same time from the tower.

The shot as uploaded will not be accepted here, but it defiently has the potential! I think your main problem here is that the sun was shining towards the mountain in the background but you got the clouds when taking the pictures. Try with the levels adjustment, then go for some 20-40% sharpening, and then erase/sharpen spots as needed.

Quoting Scottieprecord (Reply 5): My main question though, is that a rainbow in the upper right of the frame?
You are correct and see the remaining portion of a rainbow. We had some weird weather rolling through the area when the B-773 was doing the approaches. The entire rainbow was visible when the B-773 was on about a 5nm final, but just about totally disipated by the time the picture was taken. I wanted to get the entire rainbow behind the B-773, but mother nature did not cooperate. Believe it or not, but there was snow on those mountains within an hour after the B-773 left the area.

The levels were adjusted and I used 50%, 0.2, 0 on the sharpening. I did however apply the USM passes three times (too much?).
