Photos Revised -screener Help Pls?

Tue Mar 14, 2006 7:46 am

Hi just spent sometime editing again the photos after removal frm Q.
The IL76 I have reduced some exposure also some sharpening
N720JR Leveled the picture also gave some contrast
HBAFD arranged slightly the colour ;dust spot removed
was jagged due oversharpening -hope it looks better
Selected sharpening on tail and around fuselage
what abt reg does it still looks jagged ?as if I dont give some sharpening then the image will be too soft

Appreciate any help pls since I worked mostly on the comments I received from the 1st post.! another thing what if I leave them in Q and then if they got rejected I will post them in forum for opinion pls?
Thks alot in advance

Well my quick take on them is the following:

1. Jaggered and bright on this BenQ monitor here
2. Seems ok to me - but may pay to remove jaggies from stipes on aircraft.
3. Seems ok to me
4. Soft
5. Blurry
6. Blurry

Hope this helps,

Excellent work Malcolm - that BritishJet still looks very close to a tail strike to me!

Generally I can see improvements in all the edits. Unfortunately I am still not a screener  biggrin , but with my hyper-critical eye, I would still be less than 100% confident about some:

* IL76 - better than before, though slightly grainy. Still small areas of jaggies, but I would stick with it as it is such an interesting shot.

* 720 - looks a lot better. Hard to get rid of all those jaggies caused by those cheat lines.

* ATR - I think this will stand a good chance now

* Blue Line - still looks a bit soft to me in places - e.g. front and rear

* Phantom - still looks a great shot, but I can't escape noticing slight softness generally, particularly the front quarter of the plane. But with such an interesting image it would be a great shame not to submit it for assessment by the screeners to see if they will give any latitude.

* BritishJet - I really like this capture, but I cannot get away from what I see as quality issues unfortunately. It still looks slightly soft - e.g. tail area - and hence why the sharpening hasn't brought it up just right. I think that can be seen in that jagged registration, which suggests to me that it is very slightly blurred in the original.

I am not a fan of the watermark - though understand why people use it - but I think it looks better when the watermark doesn't cut across the plane so much - e.g in the new version of the 'Blue Line'.

I hope that - as often is the case - I am being too harsh a judge, and that you have some success. Thanks for sharing the photos with us and good luck.

No problem being harsh my friends!!Better take some advice over here obviously if there is a screener comments this will help out very much because ultimately they are going to decide wether these pics will be online or not, I am not saying that other comments are not the way.
