I have this picture rejected with centered reason. I know I have a little tail high, but the nose is centered and some screeners prefer this way to center the frame. The problem is that if I surely low the tail to another screener will say me this looks low.

Big version: Width: 1355 Height: 915 File size: 269kb


I would like some help to correct and re-uploaded the picture or if is worth appeal.

Regards

Bustin

Quoting Bustin (Reply 1):

I'd prefer it a little lower as well, not too much. I think it's better to aim for the top of the fuselage and not the nose.

Quoting AA173HVY (Reply 2):

1: Not too bad, but a bit soft. Would possibly like a closer crop since now it looks like you just lost the wing tips

2: Distance, way too much empty space around the aircraft, and also soft/blurry and dark

3: I quite like this one, but excess space in front of the nose, and downsize to 1024 pixels wide, that will cover other issues

4: Distance, over exposed, chromatic aberration, quality

I think since it's one of only 4 known to be in existence, It should go up!!
It does need a bit of CW rotation though.

AA173HVY,

Post-capture processing will normally help, however I'm afraid all these have serious quality issues which I doubt can be corrected.

Once again guys, feedback on these edits I did for a friend (were at the bottom of last pre-screen thread and will therefore now not be scrutinised) - different to my normnal workflow so I was worried about any softness.

Thanks John.

By this do you mean crop tighter? The plane's left WT was not in the pic, so I cropped the other one out to center it a bit more.

Karl, I gave feedback on the Finnair in the other thread. The SAS is possibly ever so slightly soft on the front section of the fuselage, but those SAS titles are pain to photograph.

Dale,

1600's OK but best to use 1024x683 as this will hide any tiny quality issues.

Nice shot, although I'd tone down the brightness (highlights look a bit washy) and give it a kick of contrast.

US Airways

No chance - there is a ground vehicle obstructing the nose-gear and it seems to be the wrong size.

Northwest

Nice shot but bad crop (not centered properly), wrong upload size and appears to need slight CCW rotation.

Wing shot

Just doesn't do it for me I'm afraid. Boring; not much to look at and there's a curious streak top-right, about 3cm from the edge of the frame. Also wrong size.

Midwest

Possible but I'd crop closer in on the nose right-hand side. Also looks slightly soft on my monitor.

Sorry, Othic. These both have quality issues that I don't think can be helped. These are for the personal collection, I'm afraid.

Zak, we need to see the full-size version. It is possible that when you make it bigger, some quality issues and other flaws will emerge. Post a larger version and you'll get better feedback.

I just took this one. I can't get the plane vertical centered since the crop (1024*683) touches the edge of the picture. Does the former Fokker factory with the Fokker planes still justify the shown crop ?
