Hello all
Thought I'd spare myself the grief of another rejection and air this one here. Rather difficult shot but I do like it.
Took it this morning at 4.20 AM, the sun is just warming the sky, the morning mist/fog lingers over the runway and UPS 767 makes an early take of, witk som light wing condensation and wing tip vortexes. This would definately fall under the dark/dusk/dawn category, but is it Anet worthy at all?

Thanks, Johnny

4.20?!!!! Are you an insomniac or something lol?

Doesn't measure up to me but I'm always wrong anyway so I'll let someone else appraise it.  

It's too soft and at that time of day I reckon that's all you are going to get from that spot, sorry.

I'd say quality, and I also think that according to the new "dark" rules, this photo doesn't fall under it.
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong though.

Your picture is too soft. Quality is an issue because the contour of the aircraft isn´t well depicted in some places (for example, on the right wing). A tad more contrast might be needed, too.

I believe that when the sun is up then the 'dark' category doesn´t apply.

Lol, my gf seriously doubted my sanity when I went up at 2.45, and took my 14 month old daugher with me Big grin
But she really enjoys spotting, this image is from this morning at 4 AM  Smile

But what can you do, if you wanna catch the freighters it's up before the devil puts his shoes on.

The reason for that is the mist/fog combined with the condensation. It actually came out a bit clearer than I thght when I took the photo.

Well the sun wasn't up, it was just starting to make the sky orange  Smile
It would be more apparent if I hadn't adjusted levels and curves, but then it really would have been a nono.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I've been doing a lot on this one in order to adress the things you've said here, and this one is sharper, but I lose some of the fog that was there and I'm not sure the image can take that much sharpening.

Wings are too soft. Nothing you can do, I guess a bad hour to go spotting. You are just not going to get the sharpness at that distance.

EK20, as I said, the fog makes the wings soft, and the fuselage is above the thin layer, but as you say it probably is a lost cause.
I definately have to save up for a faster tele lens for those morning spots. Sigma will soon release their new 70-200 2.8 for KM/Sony and at $1500 it's reasonably priced I think.
Next time I go spotting that early, which happens once a month or so I will concentrate on watching instead of taking pics. I have realized that I see all aircrafts through the eyepiece of my camera  Smile
