Hi,
I just uploaded the following two photos I've taken today.

#1: http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/HS-TNC_test_filtered.jpg

#2: http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...y/HZ-AKA_nose_closeup_FLO_anet.jpg

What do you think about them? I'm not sure about the quality of the Thai A346, but I'm pretty happy with the 777.

Thanks for your help,
Florian

Hi,

the Thai is dark. I like the close up, nice detail. Hopefully it doesn't fall victim to a motive rejection.

The Thai is a little dark around the nose and bottom of the fuselage but i thing a little brightening up can fix it. Also, it looks like its just a tab bit blurry around the tail section and maybe oversharpened in some places in the front of the aircraft. Possible for the Thai to get a motiv because of the main wheels being cut off a little bit but i kinda doubt that since it isnt much.

As for the 777, which i believe is Saudi Arabians, looks fine to me. Only thing that concerns me is that half the fuselage is covered in darkness while the other half is nicely lit.

Thai is too dark and the nose shot is nice but I feel it needs a better crop and edit may get badmotiv as it is now. Almost looks like it's leaning ever so slightly to the left too.

Thanks for your input guys!
I'll remove the Thai and try to rework it, I also have some side-ons during the landing, maybe I'll try those also.
Yes, the second picture is a Saudi Arabian 777 and I really hope it won't get a motive rejection, I've seen similar shots getting in not so long ago.

Just edited this one, what do you think?

Hi Florian,

Quoting DM (Reply 2):

That was my first concern when I opened the picture. With the light shining directly into the nose this would have been a killer shot! Also, in my personal taste, it is too high in the frame, since the cheatline somewhat divides the image horizontally, thus your eyes would expect it to be in the middle (although I can see that it runs above the centerline). Additionally, as NIKV69 already stated, it needs rotation, I'd say 0.3 CW.

Regarding the landing gear shot, I cannot really comment on motive (but I like it, for what it's worth!). I'm not quite sure about the exposure, as you have parts very bright (but not overexposed), and some pitch black. Additionally, it seems to me you put slightly too much contrast. Overall, I think this is a high risk one.

Hope it helps!

Here is my re-edited version of the picture (leveled and brightened up):

Better?

HI Florian,
Not to nitpick, but I wonder if you could do something about the slight grain in the shadow area, and if the picture could use just a little bit more sharpening?

Hi Flo

I´m chiming in a bit late, but I´ll give you my feedback on your last posted versions:

Thai shot has some tricky lighting, as you already know. The direction of the light doesn´t allow for some of the interesting parts of the a/c to show in full detail, and it also creates contrast between the upper aft part of the fuselage and the rest of the airframe, that takes away some of the appeal of the pic, IMO. On other issues, be careful with the jagged 'Thai' titles and the fin contour, which is a bit heat-hazy or jagged maybe.
Saudi shot is very nice. I like the last edit. What noise reduction program did you use?
On the landing gear shot the exposure is off and it´s a bit blurry, too.

Hope it helps. Good luck with them! Big grin

Cheers  thumbsup 
Lanas.-

Hey Lanas,
thanks for your post!
My anti-noise software is NeatImage Pro+, I rarely use it but it can be very helpful!

EDIT: Just removed all the other versions and uploaded this one:

I hope it has a chance.

The watermark looks terrible, apart from that it is really cool!

Looks nice to me. Its probably because you can only really see "NERS.NET"

I don't like watermarks that are too visible. They not only destroy the image for the thief, but also for many viewers like me. At least it would be easier to ignore if it was less visible.

Maybe you misunderstand me. My point is that it destroys more for honest aviation photography enthusiasts without First Class membership than it will likely destroy for people stealing photos. Less visible watermarks is better.

Yes, but a photographer would be a little happier to see his/her photo on a website with "Airliners.net" written on it than just nothing...

I do understand that it would be best if a photographer never saw his or her shot on another website without the photographers permission to use it.

Sorry I am joining in so late.

As for the gear shot, I had a similar one of an Emirates A332 slightly from above photographed (many details like the axis visible) rejected for motiv even on appeal  frown  I really liked it, and I really love those shots!

Yours is a great one too! Leave it in the queue but it will probably get a motiv..

By the way great job with your Saudi 777!!!


Cheers
Björn
