Quality Help... Still!

Sat Mar 18, 2006 8:57 am

Hey all

I got the following shot rejected a while back and have been wondering where the "quality" issues are with it.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I can see some jaggies on the elevator and on the down side of the tail. Probably fixable I would say.

Hi Martin,

I can see some grain on the underside of the wing which might be causing problems. I'm on a laptop at the minute which exacerbates things like this, but it's worth taking a look at.

Regards,

Tim.
Obviously missing something....

Hi Martin,

I see two problems. One is jaggies at stabilizer's trailing and leading edges. And I also see a little chromatic aberration.

Thanks guys,

If I fix the grain and the jaggies, what would the chances be then?

Still ok? (I hope!)

Hi Martin,

Of course it's a nice shot. Besides the grain and jaggies, if this shot could be increased a little bit contrast by Curve function, that would be more desirable as now it looks slightly flat, caused by the cloudy day's unideal light. Just my thought.

Martin i agree with Bubbles here the colour of the sky blends in with the aircraft maybe that was a factor in the quality rejection.
A nice shot but didn't look very ideal conditions.
All the best

Hi Martin,

Some good points raised here.

For me on first viewing the key issues are the indistinct transition between the top of the fuselage and the sky, and also the grainy/undersharpened underside to the wing. I think that is enough to explain the quality rejection.

I don't see a very significant 'jaggies' issue. In fact, to my eye there are areas that could do with a little extra sharpening. For example, that tail logo looks a bit soft.

All the best.

Main problem for me would be the nose section.

Thanks for the tips all, much appreciated. I'll have a crack at it and see if I can impove it a bit.

I actually softened that as it was very jaggered before.

Thanks for the help there Tim. Always like to hear from you. I'll have a go at fixing it. Main point to get the shot in was the US rego. Here, we don't get much "interesting" traffic so when this came in, I was hoping I could share with everyone!

It was a dark and gloomy day so the noise came from that as it needed to be lightened a bit.

Thanks all for the help. Much appreciated.
