Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now?!

Thu Feb 23, 2006 12:29 pm

No, not the song! Big grin Anyway...I edited up this pic of AA's winglet 757. Suprisingly , there is only one shot of it at the moment, and that one being an air shot. I am aware this is quite backlit, so spare me there. I used the shadow/highlight in PS plus other tweaks. Have I overdone it and should just pull it now and save a reject?

Thanks,

I feel like this one is pretty over done. The taxiway is pretty bright while the aircraft is not. It just has a look to it that is hard to describe for me. Overdone is the only thing that comes to mind.

PS Sorry about the BA 747, I would look at that thing every day and twice on Sunday! I really hope you can get it on here.

Pull it. The aircraft is, as you say, backlit, while the background is over-exposed - I'm guessing you increased the levels in an effort to brighten the aircraft.

Levels, curves, you name it! LOL...I will pull it and save any future headaches. Big grin Eh....the BA shot...the appeal was shot down as you may have seen in a follow up thread. S'okay, it was accepted at brand X.  Wink

Thanks guys!
