BadScan Help

Mon Jan 05, 2004 4:44 am

Anybody want to venture a guess as to what makes this a badscan? I can't figure it out. True, it is a large size and i could have down-sized it but would that really help? Is it the color of the sky? All of the letters and numbers are clear.

Well, I choose my upload size for an image depending on my assessment of the overall quality of it..... my normal is 1200x800 and the highest I ever do is 1500x1000 which i save for the ultra-sharp or otherwise stand-out photos of which this one appeared to be.... but i seem to be missing something that the screener saw I guess. Its not a major thing, if a smaller version would have made it look "better" I would have gone for that.

I did upload a different version..the shot taken right after this one in sequence, and made that one smaller. But my favorite was this one...........

I haven´t seen anything wrong on this either. I wish my scans were that good.

On my monitor it doesn't look tacksharp, particularly the rear.
Uploading a lower resolution would make it look better I think.
Otherwise a nice shot!

Bruce,

I agreed with another screener that it was bad scan and soft although marginal and rejected your photo. Look around the nosewheel and overall it is a little soft too. I think your comment about it being sharp in the remark led me to reject it because it was soft.

You can always appeal, but I think if you sharpen it a bit more and reupload from the original it should be okay?

Regards,

Colin

it is soft from motion blur, then oversharpened.
