Hello,

So I have sent this image which got rejected due to being grainy:

http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=p1350399687.9106img_6031.jpg

The first 2 rejections were mainly because it was soft, which I corrected by giving it some sharping(to the whole picture).
In my opinion I think it's exagerated because I don't see almost any grain. I would like to ask for some opinion(s) to see what can I do to improve the image  

Regards

There's a slight amount of noise in the shadows. Should be easy to fix. Noise often get introduced to an image when you sharpen it, so you shouldn't be totally surprised.

Hello,

Thanks for your help! I'm aware that images can get noisy but in this particular case I didn't think it would get rejected because of grain.
So all I have to do is to select the shadows and remove some noise?

Dana, a quick question again about the noise removal:

I've used: Strenght 6, preserved 80% of the details, reduced 5% of color noise and sharpen details are at 25%. I'm note sure if I should be a bit more "harsh" in treating the photo...

To be honest, I don't see much difference between this one and the rejected; on the other hand, the rejected doesn't need much adjustment, so just be sure you don't overdo it.

Hello again.

Got this one rejected because it was high in frame and high contrast:
http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=p1350920165.4716img_4808.jpg
The contrast I agree, the centered reason...it's sort of confusing. The aircraft body is in the middle, I even lowered a bit because of the tail but still wasn't enough.

I also wanted to ask for some opinion about these 3:

Are you sure you gave it CW rotation? It looks like you gave it CCW rotation to me. It needs to be rotated more to the right, not left.

Oversharpened? Can't see that. It's not dark so much as the contrast is a little harsh (which makes certain areas look darker). Try reducing the contrast a little, and also brightening just slightly, and see how it looks.

Like I said above for both: it's not really the exposure that is the problem, it's the poor contrast. I think the first is more fixable, but you will be able to do that by adjusting the levels/contrast more than by just increasing the exposure.

Hello,

Thanks for your replies and I'm glad you like it DL747  

Here's the fixed version of the MD-11:
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...ready/n1353769831.2414img_8350.jpg
I double-checked with the buildings and the lamps if it was alligned and it seems ok to me now.

Also wanted to ask about this other 2:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...ready/m1353733018.5811img_8391.jpg
I cropped a bit of the runway since I think it's an interesting perspective, still I'm not sure if it will be enough.

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...ready/r1353733298.6133img_8605.jpg
Not sure about the quality...

Wanted an opinion on these 2:

Rejected due to quality(heat haze), grainy and overexposed. If I crop a bit less and give it a a fix with the noise and light you think it's aceptable?

To me, the first still looks awfully heat hazy. The second also seems to be of lesser quality. I think the third is better now, although it could be a bit too dark. It semms a tad heat-hazy, but I think it's okay. Nice photos regardless

How could jetwash be affecting the aircraft?? Are you implying there's another aircraft taking off directly in front of the EasyJet we can't see? I highly doubt it. In any case, jet wash is rarely a cause for rejection, so it would be a good idea not to confuse it with heat haze.

No, not what I was saying. I think the grass in front of the aircraft towards the wing looks a bit hazy, but it could be that the jetwash is giving it that effect.

Sorry, that's even more confusing..you're saying the jetwash is somehow traveling in front of the aircraft? In any case, not much point in debating something that has no relevance to the quality of the image.

Okay, once again, sorry for the confusion. I was saying behind the wing on the left looks hazy. In front was a brain lapse, I typed where I was looking at the time. Let's just forget that, since as you said, it doen't affect the image.

Hello,

DL747, thank you for your compliment and for giving your opinion about the pictures   don't worry, we're here to learn and since I've been in this forum asking for help and advice I've learned a lot in how to work better my pictures and to pay more attention to the details.

So, for today I have:

Fixed: http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b....842630dedezembrode20091121200.jpg
I think that if this one doesn't work, it's no use. The exposure in the aircrafts behind is too strong, I tried to lower as much as I could but it would get too dark.

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...ready/n1354226023.4759img_6059.jpg
Gave it a bit more sharp.

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...3196.122521e22dejulhode2011163.jpg
Not sure about the horizon, also in the cropping I decided to include the antenna.

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...54225029.13811dejunhode2011017.jpg
Well, I think that this one would get rejected because of the interference of the propeller but since the aircraft in the middle shows the nose pretty well I wanted to ask if it's worth to leave it in the queue.

First looks too dark for me, anyway. Nice idea, though. Easyjet looks okay, but tough for my beginner eyes to tell. Third has a bit of a funny crop in my opinion. I like it though. The fourth is jaw dropping. It might get rejected, as you said for the prop in front. Other than that, it looks fine to me.

The out of focus aircraft in the foreground is the problem. It's blocking the main subject. Without it, you would be fine.

contrast (should have been contrastY) = contrast too harsh

Got rejected because of quality, grainy(I don't think there's much grain), and oversharpened.

It got rejected for being soft but I think I've posted this picture here a few days ago. Wanted to ask if beside soft do you think I should give a bit more bright.

Got a few rejections that I would like to ask for an opinion, the last 2 pictures I had already posted here in the thread asking for advices:

#1 http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=r1356052935.7892img_4003.jpg
First it got rejected because it was soft(corrected for that only), now the most recent rejection is because it has a yellow cast and still soft.

#2 http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=v1356051239.7058img_3774.jpg
Grainy, soft and dark. The only thing I may agree with is the grain, still I think it's not too bad.

Yes, it is fairly grainy in the sky, and in the shadows/belly of the aircraft. It isn't that bad, but it is there, and with this site's hyper-sensitive grain attitude, it is a bit grainy. It is also a tad soft, but really not that bad.

Yes it is a bit dark in the under belly. The crop is a bit odd looking for me, but I can't comment on why it was rejected for being this way. Also not of great quality. It looks very soft at the far ends of the frame.

1. Looks soft in the nose and maybe a bit dark.
2. Maybe soft and a tad overexpsoed, but I am not sure. I also see a bit of vingetting.
3. Soft, dark and a bit noisy for me. Might be kind of tough to fix unfortunately. I can't tell if it is way off-level or if that is natural slope of the terrain.

Hello,

About #2, I didn't noticed the vignetting at all. The only way to fix it would be to give it more bright and try to crop a bit more? But I think if I do that it would ruin the picture...

DL747. in #3 it's a natural slope from the terrain

You can fix vignetting with software, but it often leaves pretty bad halos or banding. Better to stop down your lens a little more next time to avoid it.

Allright, thank you! I'll try again that picture or another. I never had problem with vignetting, was it due to the darkness plus the strong sunlight?

Fixed one of the pictures: http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...1715.545730dedezembrode2009113.jpg
Corrected for the noise and strong light.

Edit: Also wanted to ask if you think this one has any chance or the heat haze is too strong: http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...ready/h1359257696.9686img_3533.jpg

No, it's usually caused by shooting with an open aperture.

Hello,

Thanks for the help Dana.

Got a few rejections that wanted to ask if you agree, all rejected due to softness...I honestly sometimes can't say if a photo is too soft or oversharped, most tricky part IMO:

Hello,

Thank you Dana. I'll correct the first two then, I've appealed the last one.

I want to ask for an opinion on this 2 rejections:

#1 http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...in?filename=i1359255180.395114.jpg
Rejected for being unleveled. I leveled the photo with the radar pilar in the background, I've always done like that and didn't have problems with level.

#2 http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...lename=r1359257968.433img_3543.jpg
Rejected for being unleveled and soft. About the level I'm not 100% sure if it's unleveled, the soft rejection I could agree more.

Looks like it needs a touch of ccw, but it's also heat-hazed, so might not be fixable.

Quoting riflex (Reply 163):

It's a combination. Soft in the low-contrast (darker, in this case) areas but too sharp in the high contrast areas (the brighter parts, in this case). The jagged edges are most apparently on the edges of the winglets and tail, since those are the most high contrast elements.

It looks like it might be hazed as well.

Thanks for the answer Cargolex!

I see what you mean, the jaggies are most noticeable indeed in the winglets and tail. I'll try and fix the shadow parts better, do you think the heat haze will be enough for not being accepted?

The haze isn't as apparent as on the Star Alliance TAP, so it might be fixable, but getting those shadowy areas sharp is going to be hard as you might get some grain going on in those shadows if you sharpen those areas.

Hello,

Sorry for the very late answer. Thanks for your help Cargolex, I'll give it a shot later to the Star Alliance.

Got a few rejections that I want to ask if you guys agree:

#1 http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=b1360101651.1361img_8371.jpg
Rejected due to level(needs CW rotation it says) and overexposure. The overexposure reason is a bit exagerated I think but the level I may agree more, I don't have a clear object to level so I tried to guide myself by the roof of the houses.

#2 http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=d1360098791.1563img_4008.jpg
Rejected due to softness. I had to eliminate some noise that was in the shadows and sky so that might explain part of the soft parts. Is there any other place in the aircraft that I should take a look?

#3 http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=d1360102083.7003img_4049.jpg
Rejected for being soft.

Hi,

#1 - I don't see softness in the nose but the sky and darker parts of the fuselage do look a bit grainy.

#2 - This looks to me like it might have been soft/blurry and needed too much sharpening to compensate. The sky also looks quite grainy.

#3 - There is a spot almost at the left edge of the frame and about the height of the undercarriage. I agree that the right wing look oversharpened as well as the joint between the windshield and canopy. I would also smooth the stripes a bit.
