I have the following window shot in the queue, and I am just curious about certain aspects of the photo itself.

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/IMG_0289edit.jpg

This is my favourite shot from my whole trip and would love this to get accepted and bring my total upto 20 photos. What improvments could be done to it? Would it be accepted as it is?

Thanks for your valued opinions and assistance!

Hi Tom,

Well, the thing with these shots is that if you frame it like that (having wing/engine on one side), you basically draw the eyes of the viewer to the right side, which should contain the most interesting part of the picture. In your case, basically there is nothing really interesting to see but clouds and terrain. If the background is not that interesting, I would rather focus on the wing/engine, centering around that. Additionally, it looks like the focus of the camera was the winglet, thus the part of the wing around there is oversharpened, while the part of the wing near the window is slightly soft.

With the sharpening issues aside, would this crop be more acceptable?

Big version: Width: 516 Height: 662 File size: 284kb


What are the ideal sizes for portrait shots by the way?

Thanks

Hi Tom,

I personally like this crop better, but please wait for other opinions!

A bit too tight for me, perhaps try a normal (oblong), but 4:3 rather than 3:2 shot.

Normal size, only inverted, ie for example 1024px high, width:height ratio between 2:3 and 3:4.

This crop is far nicer than the originally posted, however it does seem far too small.

Try a 1024 size with a ratio like that of what Peter suggested.

Good luck - awesome shot!

I experimented with that but it doesn't look right somehow. I've now cropped and resized the image and uploaded it once again.

How's it looking?

Thanks for all your help!

It's one pixel too narrow.

And don't shoot the messenger. Please.

It's set with the ratio 2:3 and height 1024. 682 Is what the width came out as.

If I add that extra pixel, won't it stretch the image?

Hi Tom,

I would worry more about the quality of the shot now than one more or less pixel. I think you can see some jaggies, particularly near the overexposed parts on the upper wing/engines, and the lower part of the engines look soft. Also, the position of the clouds and these strange 'cloud strakes' up/left give the impression that the picture needs some CW rotation? Due to the bright light and consequent dark shadows, I think this will be a tough one to get up to A.net standard...
