First, most people here would say downsize them. 1500 pixels is large for Anet. 1100 or 1200 would hide more flaws in editing of the photo. For the A330 it feels low in the frame, and I see some jaggies as well. For the Lufthansa, it is an automatic motive rejection with the pole blocking the nose gear. That shot needs to be pulled from the queue. The file name needs to be changed as well from the generic camera file name. And the wires in the sky look like they have been sharpened to me. When you sharpen the picture make sure to sharpen only the parts necessary. The sky in general should not be sharpened.

Hi Simon,

besides the already mentioned oversharpening, both shots are badly centered leaving too much
dead space at the nose of the aircraft. The LH shot has no chance as Matt pointed out due to the
blocked nose gear.

If you rework the Etihad A330 by getting rid of the jaggies and centering the shot correctly
horizontal and vertical it could get in as the basic quality seems to be good.

Cheers, Thomas

Hi guys,
Probably an "initial intro course lesson one" kind of question, but when I use the sharpen function in CS3, it appears like the entire picture is sharpened. How can I select a part of the photo to be sharpened seperately?

Thanks for the help!

Frank

Various ways to sharpen an image. The most common way is just to use USM or Smart Sharpen. This of course sharpens all the image and can generate noise. A way round this is to make a duplicate layer, apply a high level of sharpening then make that layer a hidden mask. Then select your brush in white, opacity to maybe 30% then 'paint' away the just the areas you want sharpening. Another common way used here is to create a duplicate layer, apply sharpening in small levels. When jaggies appear use the rubber tool to remove them.

There are also many other methods of sharpening, select edges, sharpening only selected colour channels. Experiment and see which one works best for you.
