Need Help With Picture.

Tue Oct 04, 2005 10:53 pm

Hi Guys,

Recently my acceptance percentage has been going up (although it is still based on all time uploads, and not my last 50!), anyways, I was wondering why this picture got a NOA_Quality rejection.

Is there anything that I can do to make it better, because I love the picture and want to get it in the db.

It also got a NOA_Soft, but I think that can easily be fixed.

Can you crop it so that the aircraft is centred and the vehicle on the left is excluded?

Thats the whole point, I want the fire truck in the picture. I personally think it adds to the picture. Perhaps this is where I am wrong!

Great shot! However, I can see why this was rejected for badquality. The details on the aircraft appear to be a bit washed out, like the photo was improperly processed for noise reduction (neatimage?). While I understand the motivation behind including the fire truck, it doesn't really adda anything to the shot, and it is rather distracting from the main subject. I think you would have had a better shot with this one if you had waited for the aircraft to start turning left onto the runway, producing a more interesting shot(with the fedex colors visible). From the front this aircraft is really just another white airplane.

If you uploaded at 1024 x ... the quality would improve somewhat.

I am work currently, but I will post the original when I get home. Do you guys think that I should just ditch the shot if I cannot get it accepted with the fire truck in it? That was my whole reason for uploading that picture.

Here are 2 versions for you James

1. with truck
http://www.honders.net/tmp/img_0003410_mod.jpg

2. without truck
http://www.honders.net/tmp/img_0003410_mod2.jpg

A few tips.
- Shoot in RAW(you have one of the best cams available so why limit yourself)
- Don't shoot in sRGB(convert from Adobe to sRGB before you upload)
- 1/50s at 200mm without a tripod ? is difficult, your 20D does not produce major noise at iso 200 so why not using it(you paid for it)


Good luck,
