Does The Sunrise Glare Kill The Picture?

Thu Apr 07, 2005 8:46 am

Glare is not looked upon too kindly here, but I found this picture I had sitting around. Does the glare from the sunrise ruin the picture and send this to my personal collection? I know it is a bit soft also, but I haven't processed it much yet. Click on the picture for a full size view.

There is a fine line between a picture and a photo. The latter seems to be disappearing.

Harry,

I like it, would like to think with a bit of work it had a chance.

Jet Blue question, do all their planes have a play on the word blue as a name like this?

Regards

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

The sunrise glare makes the shot. However, the lack of sharpness will cause it to get bumped back. Try to get it sharper.

Thanks for the replies! I'll see if I can work some magic in PS and get the sharpness up.  Smile

Hi all

Might have a chance but pushing it a little.

Front fuselage is blurry rather than soft and looks like some window reflections to the left of the 'Stand 26' sign.

Apart from that, it's a nicely composed image and the light is beautiful.

Regards

Gary

Thanks for the compliments everyone! I'm still working on the shot, and if I can't get it better at least it is still a good one for the personal collection and myav. I lucked out that morning with the light, because our plane began the taxi just as the sun rose. Just a beautiful morning.  Smile
