how does this one look? I know it's not Anet standards yet, so what can be done to get it here.



Thanks,

Ashwin

Hi Ashwin

First of all, try to work on shots of about 1024 pixels wide. It will help you hide some quality issues that might appear. Second, the picture is unlevel. You should try some CCW rotation. Third, I don´t know if the framing will help. You´re including more than half of the fuselage inside the shot. It can´t qualify as a nose shot, if that was your intention. You may be risking a motive rejection here. I would have focused on the nose by cropping on the 'United Airlines' title, putting the left border in between the two engines. Also, try not to crop so tight on the aircraft next time. It´s better if you leave some 'breathing' space.
As for quality, I see it quite soft. You should give some more sharpening to it. Again, downsizing will help, I think.  thumbsup 
Be sure to work on the colours, as well, since your pic has a pretty intense green (and perhaps blue?) colour cast.

Hope it helps. Big grin

Agree with everything Lanas has said, with the addition of one thing - your picture has some 'quality' issues. What camera did you use? I can see a bit of jpeg compression, which is generally not fixable (although this one may be salvageable) and that will usually lead to a 'quality' rejection.

Work on your motive next time; think before you shoot. It would have been better to include either the entire plane or just the nose.

Good luck!

p.s. Lanas, congratulations on your 100th shot! It's a milestone which I have yet to reach.

To me it also looks a little soft, but that may just be me.

As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

I can´t spot these compression issues you mention, but I must be missing something probably.  ashamed

Good advice.  thumbsup 
Try to compose the shot in the camera as much as you can instead of shooting a general close-up that will end up heavily edited later.

Thank you Willson!!!  cheerful 
It was indeed a nice achievement.
You aren´t that far either. I´m sure you´ll get there pretty soon!  bigthumbsup 

Cheers!
