I Seem To Be Struggling At The Moment

Sat May 13, 2006 5:37 am

I've just started to use RAW and can't seem to get satisfactory results.
Does this one stand a chance? I've re-worked it 3 times now

Hello Phil.

I think this will continue to struggle. I think part of your problem appears to be the lighting - it seems quite harsh. Thus there is a 'monotone' feel to the shot, with the white fuselage being very white, and the dark shadows very dark. That underwing area is pretty well black, and so the degree of contrast is tricky as it is. The sharpening is also troublesome, by the look of it. The dark cheatline does have small jaggies on either side of it, which are at the limits of acceptability in my opinion, and the other lettering looks slightly oversharpened.

I would gladly take a look if you would like a second edit opinion.

All the best.

Paul

I would agree with Paul, it is very harsh and the jaggies are too severe. Shooting white bodies in strong sunlight is very difficult and I have at times used a circular polarizing filter to help.

If I were you I'd take up Paul's offer to edit the original.

Take care
