Some Rejections...:-(

Sat Mar 18, 2006 8:27 pm

Hello everybody! I posted this shot (American Airlines one) some time ago and I was told to try uploading it as it was... I have tried many times to crop it in another way after rotating, but she loses all the "special" angle...

Any idea? Thanks in advance!

Kind Regards

1) Bad Angle:

Some more

2)BadAngle, BadExposure (I know... how to improve?) and BadCategory

3)Bad Quality

4)Bad Contrast

Hi Giorgio.

I didn't see your previous post, but the first AA shot is a very interesting one. I think the quality for the plane is pretty good. The angle issue is rather subjective, I think. I can see why you can't really 'level' this shot any better, and some will argue that, as it is, the impression of the ground falling from top left to bottom right is simply too much for the aesthetics of the shot.

As regards the others, the second angle one is tricky. The horizon gives a strong impression of needing CCW rotation, but by doing this those large pylons would then lean to the left. The contrast is difficult to tackle now due to the white of the fuselages being slightly overexposed. I know a method that may make a slight positive difference - get in touch with me if you would like me to have a go.

For the third, the problem with that overexposure is there again, and the sharpening is a bit of an issue.

For the last - it's that blown out white area on top of the fuselage that is the problem again.

All the best.


P.S. I have sent you an email Giorgio.

I like the AA; if the original has room for it I would make the orange cone in the upper left level.

Not much time to comment but just want to say that I really like the AA shot and I think it would be a great add to the database... Don't know what to do about the angle as I like it this way.
Best Regards
