Opinions and comments on how to improve this shot are welcomed because I couldn't tell you the last time I had anything rejected for it's lack of quality with my trusty D60. Perhaps the new 30D that took this image is crap and needs to be replaced and my D60 put back into service?!
My call, harsh rejection...... you may think it's fair and I'd like to hear why!
I'm not a professional photographer, but this shot looks pretty spot on to me ! Very, very nice indeed. Colour and composition look outstanding.
If I had to level any form of criticism, or rather - an 'observation' - it would be the armco railing featured in the foreground - otherwise, this photo is outstanding!
I could only wish to be able to return images like yours!
To be really pickey, I notice jaggies (only slight) on the trailing edge of tail, horizontal stabiliser, and leading edge of wing. Plus I think the shot suffers from a slight amount of heat haze. But thats being really pickey on what to me seems a great shot.
Thanks for the comments everyone, I hadn't appealed because I didn't want to waste anyones time if the shot was a complete flop!
Jeff, selective sharpening was applied.... sharpening is one thing I try to keep to an absolute minimum, I really dislike oversharpend images. There is a light heat haze over the lower portions of the image but certainly within what I believe to be reasonable as far as airliners.net goes.
Cheers to Gary and Royal for the comments, appreciated. I'll head off for another tinny in the dunny right after I submit the appeal Gary! Good onya cobber!
