How Does This Departing FedEx DC10 Look?

Mon Jul 24, 2006 8:46 am

Just curious what you think of this shot and how it could be improved. I've provided two independent edits, though I think the second edit is better.

Thanks,

Jeremy sorry to be the one to say this but I'm afraid IMO neither will make it.
They both have the washed out look and maybe brightened too much and a little over exposed.
I'm not saying a new edit wont make it just these at the present stage wont.

They both seem too soft as well. How is the original, I'd like to see it.

The original still lacks the sufficient quality to make it. Did you add alayer of brightness?

I gave it a shot... I don't think the original has the quality to begin with

It's soft and overexposed.
How to fix it?
Probably can't.

The original is over-exposed, sorry. There is no fix for that.

Pity, because the softness could probably be fixed.
