Too sharp, and too grainy. Even if you bring down the sharpening, this one may get a quality rejection. Did you sharpen the sky? It looks like you may have.
I did not in fact. I only did one pass of USM
on the fuselage, 50% at 1.2 and I also transparent masked off the cheatlines and the USAir logo. I did not use any noise reduction on the sky. JPEG might be a factor here, I saved at the highest quality but even then it sometimes brings out otherwise hidden sky grain, comparing my TIFF file to the resultant JPEG at 500%. I may have to do some extra noise reduction on the sky to keep that from happening (I usually do very little since I shoot at ISO 100 or 200).
I use a tube monitor (LaCie Electronblue IV
), so my "conservative" (at least, I thought it was!) sharpening probably might be too much for an LCD
screen. I backed off of the sharpen layer a bit and did some noise reduction on the sky, here's the result.
Thanks for the look Antonis.
