Hi,

that are nice shots. I don't see any problems with the first two.
The registration is perhaps a bit jagged, but this is trivial in these shots IMO.

In the third shot the reg seems to be a bit soft

rgds,

Yes i saw that too but i thought this was from the exhaust gases?

Thanks for feedback

Hi Peter!

First one looks perfectly fine to me.
Second one has very light jaggies on the top of the vertical stabilizer and the registration.
Third one could indeed use a small amount of USM.
I'm glad you keep shooting those pretty little Fokkers  Wink

Hi Peter, on the second one, it is slightly noticeable on the vertical stabilizer where the red and white colors meet. I have had similar problems recently when I checked my photo's on my laptop instead of on my home screen (I don't know what exactly causes the difference...  Sad ). I am sure that a very small rework (i.e. selective sharpening) should make them appear in the database soon, I like the pictures a lot!

PS: I am also looking for advise from a specialist to explain what is the best setting for the combination (graphics card, monitor,...?) to get the best results out of photo's.


Best regards,

Walter

Monitor differences are an aspect that I have been trying to resolve. At the moment I compare my work with other pics that have been accepted and working hard to get to a point where I feel happy to start uploading.

"Austrian Arrows" are jaggered on all of them.

Whole rear section, tail included are blurry on the first one. Can't be exhaust gas as its not like this on the second and third.

Line between red and white on the tail and fuselage on second are jaggered.

Third one seems a bit dark to me so if were to pick, I'd pick the second one as it's easily fixed and I like it the best.

Quoting Eadster (Reply 6):

I think "minor" jaggies are a very subjective and monitor dependent issue.

In my case I can look at one and the same picture on 3 systems: Mac 12" Powerbook, Samsung Syncmaster 19" TFT and the company laptop.
All monitors run at their optimized resolution and ALL monitors show possible jaggies in a different way. Sometimes I can spot no jaggies on the Mac and then I get grey hair when looking at the same pic on the company laptop or the 19" Samsung for example.......

My point is that in terms of jaggies in borderline cases the benefit of the doubt should be given since this is rather hardware dependent.

But that's just my 2 cents
