Hi,

I took this picture (with my parents help, of course  Wink ) in the early 1990s during the approach to Male/Maledives. It's a scan from paper and the quality isn't the best, though ok considering the age. I know that the acceptance standards for old pictures are lower, but also for window views?

It's the first time for my to edit a scanned picture, so I'd be thankful for opinions and tips for improvement.

It's taken out of a Condor DC-10-30 D-ADSO

Not sure but quite possibly. I would give it a try anyways. Nice scenery.

I doubt it. Unlike many "old" shots, this shot could have been shot today. You can't tell that the photo is old just from looking at it - it appears just to be bad quality in the average viewer's eye.

But nevertheless, I've been wrong about this type of thing time and time again, so don't take my word for granted.  Wink

I am working on scanned pictures (not aviation-related) for some weeks now, and from my point of view, you did quite a good job here.

Suitable for a.net? Difficult to say. Personally, I love this shot, but DeltaAVL has a point, too.

If there is any chance to not cut out the lower right end of the flap, it would improve the shot in my eyes. But anyway, I would give it a try.

That was what I thought too. But I did some research in the database and found some older, scanned wingviews of DC-10 which were accepetd in 2006.

Unfortunately it's chopped of in the original picture, so no way to improve it.

I think I'll leave it in queue and see what will happen.

Well, I stand corrected.

That's been happening a lot around here. This forum has helped with quite a few photos that ended up on the front page. Yay for pre-screening threads eh?  Wink

Good job Stefan! Great shot!

Hi,

thank you for your nice words  Smile
I was very happy when I saw that it made in after my appeal (was rejected for level first).
