Good Quality, But Motive...

Thu Mar 01, 2007 3:17 am

I believe these two shots are great quality however there could be a motive reject

Need some tips on editing, particularly cropping.

Although I like the close-up, the Airbus is blurry and the 757 is out of focus.

The quality is not great. Both shots are soft - the Airbus might be salvageable but the 757 is a case of camera shake and cannot be saved.

The Airbus would be rejected for motive - the crop s awkward and, for example, cuts a slice off the engine intake for no good reason.

When you crop, the boundaries of the cropped shot should be coherent, i.e. little bits of the aircraft should not be accidentally cut off.

I think the motives are fine. The main problem is these are apparently off the stick shots. You should at lest try to do some editing before having them looked at...

Hi

On the Aer Lingus shot the light won´t be in your favour, since the backlit issue may cause grain when sharpenng. On other aspect I think it´s blurry, but may be saved with a proper edit. As for the motive, I think it doesn´t stand a chance. Like Viv said, the engine is cut and also I guess it wouldn´t be that nice if you left only the forward fuselage section.
The AA shot is too blurry (out of focus) and I don´t think it can be saved. You may be lacking some contrast here, too.

It would be better if you posted your edits instead of the original versions next time. You might get better tips in order to improve your editing skills.  Wink

Hope it helps.  Smile

Cheers!

Agreed, but they look to be originals however, so they won't do any good in their current states.

I've had a quick play with them. The 757 is not good. Its too overexposed, the other is backlit, and has a blurry nose area.

Better luck with your next shots.

not 'great'....more like O.K.

What wb setting did you use to get a turquoise sky? You were right about the poor motive.
