Good Enough?

Tue May 02, 2006 12:04 pm

Originally rejected for being grainy and uncentered. I sent it through NeatImage and recropped it. Think it makes the grade?

I am too new to be a good judge of quality. All I can say is wow a nice shot from SAT. I recognize the buildings around the airport. What a small world.

I see some water-color effect from the Neatimage on the belly and a bit of JPEG artifacting, but I'm not sure if that is enough to get it rejected.

Hi,

I don't know if it's just me or if the photo is lacking sharpness on the top of the fuselage. The composition is really nice though.

Cheers,

Lovely action shot yo have going on there, well done. I feel though the photo is slightly over exposed especial the middle of the fuselage.The rear seems a little soft with the front being preety nice and spot on, if you want send me the original and I'll have a go at it for you.  veryhappy

It's a lovely capture, but in it's current state it will be rejected I would say. The fuselage seems slightly overexposed, so if the image has been lightened, re-edit and be more gentle. Also, the image is a little bit soft, especially to the rear of the aircraft. I think resizing to 1024x683 would benefit it.

Regards,

Tim.

Quoting DC10Tim (Reply 5):

I second Tim's comments.

When starting out, don't aim too high. Start at 1024 width and work up. 1600x res shots reveal their flaws far more easily.

NOTE to those uploading 1600x shots.... If you have a high reject rate, then please, please reduce the size of your shots.
Respected users.... If my replies are useful, then by all means...

Thanks for all the comments, and I apologize for my late reply.
I reworked the image in both 1600 and 1024, so you can compare the two.

1024

I personally like the 1600 better because of the detail you can see. But which do y'all think has the better chance getting accepted? Thanks for the help!

I'm not sure which one has the better chance to get accepted but I personally like the 1600 better as well. Usually when it's 1600px wide it's gotta be really good to get in though, because the flaws are easier to spot, but I think your photo might have what it takes.

In my opinion, the 1600 pixel version is better. The 1024 version looks strange...
