First Time Uploader.... Opinions Please?

Tue Jun 28, 2005 8:33 am

Just started delving recently into the world of aviation photography. Was wonder if anyone could critique my 5 queued pics and let me know what they think? Looking / reading some of the other threads, I get the impression that #4 might get nailed for the golfcart being in the pic....

My Queued Uploads

Looking forwarded to hearing from some of the experts and regulars in here so I learn something new.... Thanks!

Welcome Aboard Michael
First thing, your photos are too large. Resize them to no more than 1024 x 683.
You also need to recrop much closer around the aircraft. No more than an inch either side, but, the closer the better.
The lighting in your photos is not very good. Too much shadow. Try to take photos only in the early to mid morning or mid to late afternoon and always have your back to the sun.
There are also some quality issues. I can see noticeable grain in the photo. Check your ISO settings on your camera.
That's probably enough to get you started.
I would definitely pull all those photos from the queue and rework them. Keep at it, my first photos that were rejected were absolutely disgraceful.
Without struggle, there is no progress. (Frederick Douglass)
