Ok Here's A 172.. N63425

Tue Mar 06, 2007 12:07 pm

I am not going to submit these unless a screener says I should.

I know that this shot is struggling big time as far as motive goes, but I'm looking for criticism on exposure softness and any other corrections (besides motive) that you think are in order

Ok this one is so awkward, the Camera is level but everything else is not.

Hey Ted,
the first one is way too dark and not centered. I'd go for a different crop, more like this one...
Big version: Width: 800 Height: 533 File size: 74kb
Ted's Cessna

Even a C-172 can look good in a tight crop.
I like the second one, but is probably a little too far, try a tighter crop if quality permits.

Hello Ted

An interesting scene. But I have to say neither of them could make it.

The first one - dark, center, quality, editing, motive.
The second one - dark, level, distance, center, quality.

 rotfl  ...when was the last time that happened??

really not a great angle, and it's not even close to being centered.

Exposure. It's 'whacked'. Your camera exposed for the nose. It is short lit anyway.
Both the left and right sides are unusually dark. A few other people had that problem with their camera, but I don't remember what was wrong with them.

The distance kills the second one, and unless they are dead-stick, slow your shutter some so you get at least some motion blur on the prop. It too is underexposed.

Thanks for the comments. What does "short lit" mean?

It means the broad side of the plane, the side we see the most of, is in shadow. Great for portraits, not so great for here most of the time.
