Ok so im having a bit of trouble getting my sharpening right so i thought id post a few in here till i about get it right. ive had a few rejections for over-sharpening. The first 2 were sharpened how i normally sharpen them but ive uploaded them already so might aswell leave them in! the second 2 pics have been sharpened less than i normally do. what do we reckon?

thanks

First one looks mostly fine to me; the nose might be a bit soft.

Second one looks oversharpened in parts, especially on the cheatlines (I never sharpen cheatlines as much as other areas, because they tend to become oversharpened very quickly).

Having trouble telling about the third; looks slightly soft in spots, but maybe slightly oversharpened in others. Or maybe it's just right.  

Fourth one looks to me like it might be slightly blurry.

In all, I'd say you might have to consider that not all areas on the aircraft will need the same amount of sharpening. I have a pretty standard set of areas where I erase some of the sharpening, like cheatlines, wings/flaps, cockpit windows sometimes...

Vik is referencing the lines that run horizontally (ish) down the fuselage. Nice photos, by the way!

Hi Chris,

Hope the lens is holding up well!

Nice tail shot but there's a lot of dead space - can you do a 4:3 crop, or even a portrait? Might make it look more balanced.

I decided to give the tail shot a miss as i really didnt like it myself anyway. These will be my next 2 uploads. im worried a little about the lighting on the Ryanair? and the Qatar is the first pic ive tried in that style.

Also a quick question. If i have a picture of an aircraft i wish to upload which was taken on the same day as someone else (i.e same aircraft reg and same day and already uploaded by them) is there any point me uploading it or will it be rejected for common?

Thanks

Chris

It will not be rejected for common for that reason.

Looks fine to me. What do you mean by 'wrong settings'? They are only wrong if the resulting image is poor.

i was a bit worried about the shiny front, also had it set too alfocus rather than alservo as was shooting stills before. Thanks karl, fingers crossed.

35 chriswade : Have appealed anyway. Will let ya know. cheers karl.
36 Post contains images chriswade : I appealed and still rejected. Comment was...Photo ok but colour a little washed out. ahh well you win some, you lose some
37 DL747 : Yes, looks a bit washed out, and probably not the best light, but a very nice photo regardless. Does look flat to me, but not by a ton.
38 henkita217 : It just needs a bit more contrast, no? Should be fixable. ^ Why is the light not good? It illuminated the whole aircraft. I'd be happy with that light
39 DL747 : Well, it is very head on it seems, and that may be why it looks washed out.

45 dlowwa : No. Better to include the whole engine; this crop is a bit unattractive. Crop is fine.
