Hey guys,

went out for spotting today and here's my first pic. I'm lets say fairly new to this when you compare me to others on here so I'm looking for valuable feedback on how to improve my aircraft photography and getting my images on Airliners.net

I think that this picture: http://www.airliners.net/ufview.file?id=145937&filename=phpXQhIpv.jpeg might need a tad sharpening but I'm not sure as I'm not working on my Photoshop pc but on my work pc.

Thanks for helping me out in advance!

Tom

Hi Tom,

Composition looks fine although i'd probably crop a little more from the left of the frame to even the amount of blue sky left and right of the aircraft. The front of the aircraft is a little blurry and even with more sharpenig, it's unlikely you'll able to recover that one I'm afraid. This is a common aircraft with lots of photos in the database so standards are a little higher than normal. What aperture / shutter speed did you use? I've not seen the histogram, but the contrast looks like it needs increasing a little too. Other than that, it's not a bad try.

Hi Darren,

Thanks for the info! I will be uploading more pics soon. As for the histogram and such:
Program (Aperture priority) A
Aperture: f8
Shutter Speed: 1/320s so it's a bit on the slow side, but that's because I've overexposed the pic a bit to keep the noise to a minimum.

Histogram: http://www.airliners.net/aviation-photos/misc/uf/145937/phpQB1nxb.jpeg

EDIT: What do you think about this one? Think my shutter speed might have been a tad too slow as well but I prefer hearing it from someone who has 'the eye'. It seems maybe a tad oversharpened to me but again I might be wrong!

Maybe that's why the front of the aircraft is a little blurry compared to the rest of the frame. There's no problem in using ISO 200, most dSLR's produce little noise at ISO 200 to give you a little more shutter speed if needed. I regularly use ISO 200 in the winter months when the light isn't as strong so don't worry about increasing it. The histogram confirms the contrast I mentioned above.

It is soft. You might also want to convert the colorspace for your images to sRGB before you upload, as that's how they will be displayed on the web/when they are screened. Otherwise you are going to be seeing a difference in the colors between what you are working on, and what you upload.

It should already be set to sRGB, as for the 2nd pic. I suppose I should crop until the space below the plane equals the space above.

It is not. It is currently set to Adobe RGB, and when opening the file in Photoshop, the colors are quite different from how they are displayed in the browser.

What about this? It's the JetairFly again but recropped it and sharpened it. It is also in sRGB 16-bit. I feel like I might have oversharpened it, or maybe I'm just wrong. I used a guideline to put the plane in the middle but I still feel like (might be wrong again) that it's slightly too high in frame.

It's not an exact science, but there are two things that can help: 1) try looking at the thumbnail version to get an idea of the overall centering, and 2) don't forget to consider the tail fin, as it is also part of the aircraft.

That's where I go wrong I guess: the tail. As for the sharpening: you would bring it down just slightly if I understand you well?

Still needs a tiny bit of cw rotation, and contrast is still not great, though I don't think you'll be able to do much more to improve it.

I can see you've increased the contrast a lot on both, but to be honest because the light was pretty terrible to begin with, they only look a little bit better. You can try adding more contrast, but the benefit won't be that significant. Better to wait for nicer conditions next time.

Conditions indeed where sh*t, so if I understand you well you think it won't have any big effect if I work on the contrast anymore due to the poor light.

Pretty much any way other than what you did. Why did you crop it like that? Any specific reason, or was that simply what came out of the camera? Take a look through the database at previously accepted images to get an idea of what kind of crop is acceptable. That you can't find any similar to yours would be a good hint that such a crop wouldn't be acceptable.

Better than the TAP, but if you want to be really safe, try to avoid cutting the engine.

Not sure about cropping on the last one.

Suppose this one is too high in frame?

All three are a little soft and flat, but otherwise ok. Third one is a little low, but should be passable. It also has some dust spots.

So a bit more contrast I suppose. As for the dust spots, only visible on the third?

Exposure? Just leave it where it is. The light's not too great (especially on the IB, which if anything looks flat) so just put them through and see how it goes - just be prepared for issues with the IB.

Hi Dana,

I have been spotting today. I will tell you that it was cloudy, but I still wanted to have some feedback on some pictures. I have editted a first one, a Asiana 744F. I've editted it the usual way but with the sharpening I did the regular one like I do normally and a second edition with the High Pass Technique. Please tell me what you think.

Regular

Hi Tom, the verticals lean to the left, so CW is indeed needed.
I think the aircraft is a bit high in the frame too, given the large tail.

Why the first one for motive? Because of the nosewheel that is blocked by the fence?


The other two indeed have a bit of backlit due to the sun that was already almost facing them  . I maybe should've chosen the opposite side of the runway as soon as the sun was backlitting the planes.  

So you guess, both the last pictures would not make it due to the light right? (after removing the yellow and green cast)

I have the feeling they are both still a bit soft and need some sharpening.

Could you, maybe if you have the time just download one of these pics and edit the colour and contrast like you would do it in Photoshop? Show the final picture and then eventually tell what you've done, cause I am a bit 'walking in the dark' if you know what I mean at this very moment :s

They're a little on the dark and/or soft side, but should be fixable.

Thanks, I'll work on them after the weekend since I'm going on a weekend with some friends. Thanks once again for the help, and about my remark in another topic the other day: I should've rephrased myself better as it seemed I was insinuating that screeners have little or no knowledge.

And I suppose due to the lighting that it wouldn't really help if I increase contrast? Or would it?

Hi there Dana,

Would this airport overview stand any chance? If yes how do I upload it (because I do not have to select any airplane)?

For motive, the distance and fence kind of kill it for me. Also seems a bit dark and soft.

Sharpening looks passable, but it is quite dark.

It seems like SN just doesn't like the camera's lol. If you look up SSQ's pics or any other SN plane the 'brussels airlines' in the front always looks quite bad.

Hows this?

First is dark/contrasty, and is pretty common, so you'll need to have it near perfect. It's also got some pretty obvious dust spots. Second is an awkward crop, but might be acceptable. Third would be no for the crop on the left, and would be double with the second anyway.

Was pretty sure about that last one that it wouldn't get past, I'll leave the first one and add it to my personal collection and I'll give the second one a go.

Awkward crop is due to the building where the 9W was sitting, Would've liked a spot where it was in the same position yet without that building on the left :P

Too harsh? Too low if anything. Also needs cw rotation.

Lol I thought it would be too harsh (maybe it's just my screen) will edit it again and repost it.

First would be rejected for grainy, oversharpened, quality, and maybe centering for the crop. Second is a bit dark. Third would be rejected for blurry and dark.

Would've expected that for 1 and 3, I'll just make #2 a bit lighter and it should be good
