Hi...just back from a 3 week trip and looking to get some shots processed and loaded.

Got this quickly on the bridge as we were exiting the plane...any chance/advice for it? I see a bit of noise under the wing, and perhaps on the wheels...anything else?

Unfortunately quite a few quality issues (noise, contrast, etc..). Might be workable with a better edit, but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

Here's another with a quick edit. Appreciate the feedback...maybe a bit of a red/orange tint?

Looks a little soft/blurry toward the nose, and oversharpened to compensate.

First two are suffering pretty badly from heat haze, and are write-offs. The second two aren't quite as bad, but are still borderline. The oof fence taking up a large part of the bottom of the frame doesn't help either.

Another recent shot for review...tried to just spend 1-2 mins at most on it to see if that's an improvement over my prior bad edits. Contrast seems harsh but that may be my laptop screen, and I may have to wait till I get back to my proper monitor to look at it better. Thanks...

Very poor unfortunately. Has issues with color, noise, and softness. I'd suggest avoiding any editing on the laptop.

Level is off, and there is a slight halo around the tail.

Any better?

Clarity was set to 30 in ACR (not sure why)...I think that caused it. Had originally leveled to the lower line, now using the hill in the background.

Got this one quickly as I was collecting my bag, it was handheld at ISO 3200. My hopes aren't high, but to my eye, it's not a horrible picture - just not sure it's up to A.net standards. Cheers.

Contrast ok, but it's soft.

Also a little soft, needs cw rotation, and better without the person.

How's this? Better / OK?

Unfortunately, I didn't get any without the person...may have to leave it then.


Does this kind of photo have a chance, or would it be out for motive (as yet, unedited)?

A couple more to check on: would either of these have a chance? Is the first one too soft on the nose?

Still soft. It may be the dof is just too shallow.

Not a great crop.

A couple more to check on:

Both soft, and the first has to contend with the fence, and the second being backlit. Both are no as they are now.

would it be better to show the whole wings (or both aircraft)?
