OK, having left this to stew for a few hours, my question was really about how much a photo could have been adjusted or how much it can be adjusted (levels/contrast/brightness, etc, etc). What the eye sees and what the camera records are different and everyone has a different idea of what looks right. Do people try and reproduce the conditions (weather/light) on the day when postprocessing or try and get the plane looking its best?
Maybe I should have said that the photos were already in the DB
, but I presumed that the layout would give this away.
Incidentally, it was interesting looking at the AP
-BGL photos and just about all of them were at MAN
with occasional others at LHR
, Toronto and IAH
