Could You Help With The Quality Of This One?

Sun Nov 10, 2002 4:19 am

I stopped trying with the one for a few months, then I got a new scanner and tried again. I know that this has been tried a few times, but...

The plane itself is one of 7 in the fleet, and the color scheme/reg is original to the DB. The plane in the background is also original to the DB. I really thought the quality was rising with the new scan/new colors, but Johan rejected an appeal that the quality was still too low.

Do you have any suggestions of what I should do- some parts too grainy/others not sharp enough?

Thanks, I appreciate all input,

I don't think there is much that can be done to save this soul

Hi Jeremy,

Interesting shot. I'm sorry to say that the quality just doesn't look high enough. I would try resizing to 1024x7** or so though since it minimizes any inperfections.

Mind if I play around with it a little in Photoshop?

regards,
Serge

I'd have to agree with the screener's opinions on this one....quality just isn't there.

A resizing down a little bit might help but I would say it will still be iffy....

How does this look?

It was resized, smoothed, and sharpened. If you want to play around with it, please feel free to do so.

Thanks for the help,

Jeremy

Hmmm... Now it looks oversharpened evidenced by the jaggies and distortion on sharp lines. I think its hopelesss because it appears as if the sun was high and somewhat behind the aircraft (high rear left), that is the worst type of sun angle for a scanned print in my experience (assuming this is a scanned print).

Keep trying and try and keep the sun behind you!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Serge- I will try reworking the original, untouched scan...
