I like this shot, but is it good enough to be accepted?

Thanks in advance for your opinions and feedback.

It's grainy but a fantastic shot.

Awesome shot! Would be even better with some more space around it to see the full afterburners.

Well done!

Hey Opso1,

That is a real cracker! It looks to be a little over-sharpened especially in the leading edges, and this could cause noise to appear too, as EK20 commented.

Cheers,

Toni

I always seem to have to problem of "a bit" of the photo being oversharpened. Is there any way of fixing "bits" but not others?

Hey again,

It really depends on your in-camera settings and workflow, in my opinion. With in-camera sharpening, this is a fairly common effect, and easily demonstrated on some of the more extreme sharpening settings available. Regards workflow, it depends on your processing. Using the Shadow/Highlight tool in Photoshop is a major culprit, as is Sharpen as opposed to carful use of Unsharp Mask.

If I am teaching grandmother to suck eggs, do stop me, otherwise, a good sample workflow is available from Jid's site here: http://www.jid.me.uk/workflow/

It's worked for me every time, quality-wise, and it makes a great deal of sense, too.

In any case, good luck, and keep us all posted!

Cheers,

Toni

From the way you are talking I assume you sharpen the whole image?

Selective sharpening is best. Select the Marquee (?) tool (Circled in red)



Then go to unsharp mask, select the area you'd like to sharpen with the marquee tool, and hit Ctrl+F until you've got your desired sharpness!

Incredible shot by the way, wouldn't be surprised to see that on the front page soon!
