The picture IS small, and the file size is larger than required. The second pic took forever to download. Pics of this size (340K) would be unacceptable. You need to work with your JPG compression...

I think the on first one the color balance is off - yes, its clearly a sunset/sunrise, but overall it looks TOO yellow - the clear sky should be more blue and I think this would give a more "realistic" glow to the aircraft.

Hi Danny!

I have worked with your first pic,



I color balanced, used the grain reduction, sharpened 2x, and saved at 10% JPEG compression - reducing the file size to just under 64kb.

I am having problem getting accepted too and I think it is because our quality is just too low. If you have a look at the latest pictures you will know what I mean.

Dear Danny,

I'd say that C. Wassell did just what was needed with the 752 photo. It was too yellow and needed the color balance corrected. Funny, I didn't think the photo small as some did; detail, angle and composition seemed good.

For a great example of a sunset shot, nicely color balanced, see Ryan Chow's shot of a Midway CRJ-50 departing from Rochester, NY Intl Airport.

Sincerely,

Hi guys!
Thanks a lot for your help. I've worked some on the pics and we'll see what happens. I used the "Instant Fix" feature in Adobe PhotoDeluxe, and the yellow on the 757 fuselage turned white. The pic lost it's sunset effect (that's what I liked about the yellow fuse), but this might help.

I also uploaded some more pics. We'll see what the boss says, and if they get rejected, I'll post them here and see what you say, oki?

Thanks again!
/Danny

Danny...Did you see what i did to your shot above ? The fuselage is yellow, but not the sky - thats the way I like it too  

FastGlass, what size do you run your screen on?
