Do You Think This Picture Has An Odd Look To It?

Sun May 20, 2001 8:30 pm

Someone earlier posted this pic.....and I noticed that it looked kind of strange to me.

Anybody else see anything sort of "odd" about this Delta 764 photo?

To tell the truth, when I first viewed the full-sized version, I didn't think it was a photograph at all....but an artist's rendering instead.
But I can see now it was taken by J. Pries at LAX.
But don't you think the aircraft here has an "unreal" look to it?

Anybody else see what I'm talking about?

What causes this strange visual effect.....just the lighting conditions? Or is it just me?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The plane looks like a drawing to me, esp. the tail colors. But it's just me I guess.

Was hoping someone else got this same weird impression from this pic.

It does sort of look fake from the top.

Picture quality isn't excellent, that's why it has that "drawing" look to it.

Thank you, Sushka.

I guess somebody else can see it!

Must be the lighting. But the plane gives me a "cartoon" impression, esp. the wavy tail colors.

But I know that it IS a real pic by Mr. Pries.

Just thought it was kind of strange.

The plane looks as though it has been combined in with the background.

The background does not mix with the 767, because it has been edited.

The resolution in the background is not as good as the plane itself.

Maybe its come out like that when scanning and editing.

Thanks GF-A330. I think you're correct!! That is perhaps the "weird" look I refer to, and maybe NOT the lighting.

You think it's been edited?

The image looks to have been over sharpened in the area of the registration and US flag, leading to the bars on the flag being distorted.

But the major reason the photo looks slightly out of kilter is the colour of the sky and the position of the aircraft vis a vis the black building. These seem to give an unreal quality if you look too hard at the shot. I've had the same problem at LAX.

If you had posted this in the photography forum not only would you get a whole load of other photographers like me down your back, you'd also piss off Johan as well as Joe Pries who for your info is a professional in the business.
The photo is as real as they come
I think you are seeing JPEG compression

Can you explain this for me?

Thanx.  Smile

I see nothing strange about that photo, but check out this one of a melting/warped Eastern DC-8! I find myself wondering why this one was accepted, even though it's of a reasonably rare aircraft.

That's just heat distortion on the above EA DC-8, isn't it?

Um, are you the one who posted the picture of the Western DC10 that had a wheel missing? If so, try looking at the pictures on this website when sober.  Big grin
Looks like a Delta 767-400 landing at LAX to me...

Yes, I can see what you are talking about. The picture, especially the tail and the belly of the aircraft, kinda looks like a painting, or like it was cut out from some where else and pasted on. I know the photo is real, but it does have an interesting animated look to.
