Hi,

I took this from a JetBlue ERJ-190 this past Sunday, JFK-BOS.

I was snapping away when I saw the rainbow-encircled shadow, and this shot showed the effect the best. I think there may be a few editing issues (oversharpened?) but I'd like to ask for your thoughts. I'm also providing a link to the original if that can help at all.

Thanks for your thoughts and help!

Jeremy

Hi,

Personally I like the pic but without you telling me what you'd snapped I'd be wondering why you'd taken it!

It's not obvious and there isn't a great deal else to look at in the picture.

Sorry I don't think this one is for A/Net just a good personal album shot!

Spru!

Hi Jeremy

The wing may be a bit jagged but I also see that there´s too much space to the right of the image, so that will bring motive problems.
I´m going to try an edit of your pic on PS.  yes

I think the "rainbow" has something to do with the sun refracting off the oddly shaped E190 windows. I flew a US 190 up to BOS in very similar lighting and had the same effect.

I've seen it on a 717, as well... but that was in poor weather and my seat was too far behind the shadow, so the picture didn't come out well at all...

I believe the effect in the picture is called a "glory". It's pretty common and a neat thing to see when onboard an airplane.

I don't have much to add about the photo, but there is a dust spot cleary visible in the upper right hand quadrant - right below the top border.

Hi Jeremy,

As the others have said, there is way too much empty space to the right/top of the frame with absolutely nothing interesting in it. If, and that's a big if, the picture can handle quality wise such a heavy crop, I would basically crop (from left to right) just until the winglet, and same for bottom to top. Then the center of the picture basically becomes the shadow with the rainbow effect. However, even so I don't know if the motive would be good enough, but at least probably worth a try.



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

That is a very neat effect. I would start with trying the following:

Crop
Resize
Level Adjustment
Saturation Adjustment
USM
Neat Image

Have fun with it and let us know if you have any other questions.

Your crop and re-frame are much better. I'm having a hard time telling what the sharpest object in the frame is. It appears to be the wing. You might try adjusting this without over sharpening the background, by using a duplicate layer.

Hi Jeremy,

For me at least that's the crop to go. Now, as far as I can see, the quality right now is not there. The picture is soft and noisy, and I would add slightly more contrast. Don't know if you can improve the quality on this one to the required standard, and even so don't know if the motive is acceptable.

The crop is much better. However, try to see if you can add a bit more space over the winglet and remove some space to the right of it. I think it will not appear so tight.

Good luck with it.  bigthumbsup

All right... another go at it, this time I've added some sharpening with a duplicate layer.

Still soft but it´s better. Looks like you added some contrast, too.
I don´t know if you´ll be able to get a good result out of it, however. It may be a bit too blurry.

Good luck with it.   

Cheers
