Hi there,

I have been busy trying to make some scans of old slides lately, and in order to keep some variety in my uploaded shots, I decided to have a go with a shot of a "real airliner" (i.e. related to my uploaded shots, which are pure military for the moment).
My first try was rejected for quality and blurry:

Since this was my first go at uploading an airliner, I would like to have some advice to improve this (and future shots). I know that "blurry" cannot be cured, but sometimes I fail to see where it is blurry (well, unless someone tells me where to look...).

Thanks and regards,

Walter

Hi Walter

The whole image has a soft/blurry feel but the nose section especially.

Hi Walter!

Switching from old scan uploads to new digital ones can be quite tricky as completely other standards are required.
You SN shot is slightly blurry all over the plane, most noticeable at the elevators, wingtips and titles; one clearly sees that you tried to rectify it but I fear this one is a lost case for A.net.
On a personal note I don't really like the angle neither.

Cheers,

Thierry

Hello Walter - I hope you are keeping well.

The word 'blurry' often implies for me a bigger 'crime' than we actually see. Really your shot here is a good example of one where - for whatever reason - you have just failed to capture the subject pin sharp in the original. As a result your efforts to sharpen it in editing just fall a little off the mark for what is required here. This is by no means a bad photo, but it won't get past those eagle eyes. For current photos of common subjects there is simply no significant room for error now. Take a look at the tail - the horizontal stabilisers just don't look sharp, and the underside of the fuselage, from the wings back, is another area where it is very slightly unsharp.

Take good care - and my thanks for your continued excellent contributions to the site and this Forum.

All the best.

Paul

Hi (again),

I have put another one in the queue, is this OK or is it also blurry? What about the angle?

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...070511_CRW_8051_RT8_WVB_1200px.jpg

would this be acceptable or should I also pull this one?

... and switching from military to civil seems also very tricky  Smile

Best regards,

Hi Walter

The lighting doesn´t help at all in this one. Its being backlit makes it less appealing, and I´m seeing that you´ve got some jaggies problems and some soft/blurry issues in some parts as well.
I recommend that you always shoot from the sunny side, if possible.
Hope it helps.  Smile

Cheers
Lanas.-
