Which One Should I Go For Next?

Mon Nov 06, 2006 8:39 am

I'm a little disappointed about this rejection (quality):

But, alas, I will move on... I have a couple other shots that I'm confident of, but I only have one upload slot now available... Which one looks like it has the best chance?







Thank you all!

I think all those shots are soft. What editing are you doing? I'd add a bit of USM.

Of all of those I would pick the American Eagle Saab. All the others have some quality issues, but I think the Saab stands a chance.

Personally I don't like the aft quartering shots with the sun setting from behind the A/C. Seems like the shots have more a 'hey it was the end of the day and I didn't fell like working' type of attitude then a professional photographer trying to take quality shots.

I'll bet the fact that there is only 1 other shot of that particular airframe on the DB will help, won't it? I'll go for it...

I took those shots because of the great lighting at the time... I'm no professional (yet), but I'm trying to be given my limitations...

I edit with Photoshop Elements 2.0. I tried some additional USM on the F9 landing shot and it got some mad jaggies, so I'm kind of reluctant to try it on the other shots...
