Last "Is It Good Enough?" Topic From Me For A Few.

Sun Feb 18, 2007 9:02 am

I'm out of usable photos! I got a series of photos here (before and afters) and I am curious if any of these are good enough.

Starting with the 2 I have in the Queue now:

5th Upload attempt: I've fixed level, dirty, contrast and soft. What do you all think?

2nd Upload attempt: I've fixed Blurry:

I also have this US Airways 757:

And The Allegheny Retro Jet:

Compared to the original

I fixed the Size, hopefully some of the quality, colouring and softness.

Any and all advice/comments/critiques is appreciated. And like I said, this is the last thread of this type I'll make for a while. I'm out of photos till summer!

I think you should have stopped after your first rejection. Is this shot reallyspecial enough to warrant 5 upload attempts?

You really can't "fix" blurry. If the shot is blurry, which it STILL is, trying to fix it with extra sharpening will only lead to a jagged image.

The other images appear to have various quality issues.

P.S. What are your camera settings? Are you using a large apeture? Also, do you have your focus point set to center?

Those first 2 the cessna and American eagle dont really stand a chance,cessna has few issues and looks oversharpened and as stated you cant fix a blurry shot.
US Airways A320 looks to have quality issues,exposure and level.

US Airways 757 seems to have alot of things wrong with quality,focus and other issues so it dont think it would make it.
