How Do These Look?

Sun Feb 04, 2007 10:23 pm


Was just wondering what the general opinion on these shots are, can they make the db and if not what improvements can be made (if any).

Thanks for any input  Smile

Hi Rich,

they all look slightly oversharpened to me, leaving white halos around the planes edges.

The "Turkish" titles on the A340 are jagged, aswell as the Lufthansa titles
and Taillogo on the A321.

Try to apply less sharpening, or get rid of halos/jaggies by sharpening on
a duplicate layer and erasing them afterwards.

Croatia shot is a bit soft, but I think the lighting doesn´t help. I´d ease on the contrast a bit. It seems a little dark also, too.
SAS shot is nice, but the tail (specially rudder) is soft/ blurry and I don´t think it can be saved. There are other parts where it´s slightly oversharpened but it´s not a big deal.
Turkish shot is pretty jagged, be careful. Titles, tail livery, wingtip and winglet, mostly.
Lufthansa shot is pretty oversharpened and with some quality issues. I don´t like the distortion on the lines of the fin, tail livery and slats. Looks like the typical heat haze distortion.
Hope it helps. Good luck with them.  Smile
