"Baddirty" ... But It's The Aircraft That Is Dirty

Tue Jan 11, 2005 3:53 am

Hello,

When do you call a photo 'baddirty' ?

and what if the aircraft itself is dirty ?

Congratulations to the screener ? or just an excuse to get rid of a photo ?

Baddity means that the photo itself is dirty. For example a dust spot , not because the plane itself is dirty. I think your shot has a dust spot in the top left-hand corner...

Hi,

Open the image in PS and apply agressive contrast/levels and look at the image, thats a pretty dirty sensor with many small dust spots on it, thats why it was rejected

Cheers

Guy,

First of all, it's a rather dirty aircraft indeed. On the other hand, I noticed three dust spots: one above the left main door, halfway between the fuselage and the top of the photo, another underneath the marking 'A320-200' also halfway between the fuselage and the bottom of the photo and finally the last one underneath the right engine, also halfway to the bottom of the photo. As stated above, if you add excessive contrast, you will notice many more dust spots, not visible under normal contrast.

The best thing to do is to clone away the visible spotsand reupload the shot. After that, I think it's best to spend some time cleaning your sensor.

Greets,
Ivan

Indeed maybe a little cleaning is needed, check this link for the way of doing it without ruining the sensor.

Yes i have had a look too , and there are quite a few little dust spots on the image ..... must have fallen off the BMI and onto the CMOS perhaps ?




Dont suppose there'll be an apology  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Guido,

I e-mailed you back and marked the dust spots on both photo's.

Hope this helps,

Serge

Thanks for the advice.
I have 'eclipse' and pec-pads' at home.

I don't know what screens you have but on my crt (19"); no way you can see them.

However; adjusting high-contrast on the screen revealed dust-spots on other photos too (i mean accepted ones).
I'll turn the contrast off again; so we can go to sleep in peace.
