Tom i had a go at your shot its not the best edit but a quick one to see what i can manage with it.
First thing i did was look at your EXIF data it said some things to me that made me think the shot is a bit overdone.
1-ISO 400
2- 1/1600 shutter at F6.3
The shot is therefore over exposed and no matter what you do the quality is lost.
You might have bumped the ISO a bit to 400 but in the process you have over cooked the image .
Try to shoot at ISO 100 and at F8 and especially in good weather.
Here is the edit i had a go at but like i said before its just for an idea
All the best with future uploads tom.

Just to clarify what i said earlier i meant no harm to tom and I'm it is possible that if i did not say anything now he would have continued to use these settings on the 350D my intention was to give him a heads up on a better setting for his camera especially at 09.30 when the light is very strong.
Again good luck tom your 350 is capable of great results and I'm sure you will get there.
Cheers

Any better? The image might be a little bit bright at the top.

Aaron,

Your crop is out of proportion. As a general rule, the image should have a 3:2 ratio.

To expand on what JJ747 said about the EXIF data, he is right that High ISO, etc is not conducive to the best images and perhaps reducing the ISO and increase the shutter speeed (to 1/400th or so) would have perhaps helped there.
Back to the EXIF data, it also reveals that the photo was taken in "Sports" mode, no need for that when shooting a stationary aircraft. "Sports" Mode takes over your camera to ensure a high shutter speed and will open up the aperture and increase ISO to acheive that aim, it also increases Sharpness(the artificial sharpening done during JPG conversion), Saturation and Contrast... Generally better to make some of those decisions yourself.
Tom, I would advise learning about the "creative" modes of your camera and learn to shoot in the Aperture priority or Shutter Priority modes.... or heaven forbid "Manual"

Regards

Chris

Quoting StealthZ (Reply 8):

I use "Sports" mode to due being able to use the continueous shooting.

Also the aircraft is moving, because it is being pushed back from it's stand.

Thanks guys for the edits  bigthumbsup

Oh boy! Tom, you've got many things to learn.  Wink

As I'm in contact with you, I can tell you what I recommend to use when shooting aircraft.  Smile

The first thing I am going to say: Don't use the sports mode, ever.

Regards,
David

PS: I'll continue on MSN.

Tom,
"Sports" mode is intended for fast moving objects and a plane being pushed back hardly requires 1/1600 sec shutter speed.

With my background in motor racing... even flying aircraft hardly qualify as "fast moving"!

I will leave you in David's hands but if you would lke to converse off line contact me via my profile and I will give you MSN details.

Cheers

In Photoshop go to File > File Info > Camera Data.
