Second guessing myself after a slew of rejections plummeting my ratio almost 20 percent.

Join the club!  Yeah sure

Looks a bit dark in the foreground but I love that sky. But I'm only an amateur so what would I know? Big grin

That was the plan. Was going for a sillouhette (sp) but I think I may have failed.

Doesn't look too bad actually. I think it needs some CCW rotation though. Upload it. What's the worst that can happen...your acceptance ratio goes down to 10%.  Silly

I can do even better - I haven't had a photo accepted in well over a year and I only have 5 in the database, so i think I have you beat

Going back to the picture...

Hi Danny,

I think it is a great photo for sure, but it's not a silhouette one, and for a normal one it is probably too dark. Just had a quick edit (not meant for uploading). Since you do not have any other reference, I levelled according to the wings (0.4 CCW), highlighted mid-tones 0.2 and used some shadow highlight (  boxedin  ), and surprise, you see again the original picture!




Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!

Hey Danny,

Personally, I think its a great shot. May I suggest reducing the amount of shadow especially near the engines.(use the shadow/highlight tool) & perhaps brightening it up a bit. Besides that its a cool shot. Good luck getting it in!  Smile

P.s. - Ancontado's re-edit is a great example of what Im trying 2 say
