Some Help And Advice Needed...

Sun Aug 20, 2006 7:34 am

Hi there,

I have got a load of rejections lately, and would like some advice (should I by a new monitor?)

Most of the rejections were for soft, but on my monitor I really apply sharpening until jaggies (almost) start to appear (I am using a flat screen monitor - SIGMA TFT 1901M), so I would like to know what I should do to improve...

Some examples:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...W_4715_RT8_WVB_1200px_new-edit.jpg

this one was first rejected for "soft", now after a re-edit rejected for "blurry":

this one was rejected for "soft" and "quality":

As stated before, I am not arguing about the reasons for rejections, I would just like to know how to improve...

Thanks for feedback and possible hints.

Best regards,

Walter

Hi Walter,

Have you tried editing those to 1024x768 and seeing if that helps on any of them, like the quality rejection. There are a few blurry shots there imo but how ever much sharpening you do, a blurry shot is a blurry shot  Smile

Hope that helps

Cheers

Ben

The Mirage picture has some jaggies on the leading edge of the right wing and on the horizontal. Try resizing them down to 1024 px and see how they turn out. The jaggies will require a re-edit though.

And what Ben said above,

Hi Ben, Michael,

Thanks for the feedback! I 'll try with resizing soon!

PS: personal conclusion: I need to upgrade my tools (i.e. including my eyes  Smile...) and keep on improving my editing skills...  ashamed 

Best regards,

Walter

Hey Walter,

Sorry to say this but I think you are fighting a loosing battle here. The quality just isn't there.

I'm seeing motive rejections for all apart from the Mirage. Then to add, if the Mirage is that blurry at 1200, I doubt an edit at 1024 is going to be much better.

If I were you, I'd use those shots as a learning curve, place them in the personal collection, and get out and about and shoot more aircraft and see how the next batch turn out.

Hope this helps a bit.

Martin
