I Like This Shot But...........

Wed Apr 04, 2007 2:41 am

I took this shot at RAF Musuem at Hendon back in January. All I have done is a little editing. Size crop etc.
But I can't get the Shapness right? The Reg under the wing does not look right?
Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 683 File size: 555kb

Can anyone help or is it not worth it?
Regards
Damien

Looks good apart from it's unlevel and possibly slightly overexposed near the rear... ?

Looks good to me either, and I agree on the overexposed issue too.
However, how do you notice if it´s unlevel in this case?

A small adjustment on the shadow/highlights tool should fix that. I'd apply a tad more USM but other than that I think its fine.

As for level, I have no idea on what to use as reference. I'd probably get rid of some of that space at the front of the aircraft too so its the same as the rear. You'll get a centre otherwise!

Next silly question what is USM?

My settings are as follows:

Amount: (adjust to what you think. Usually a reasonably high setting)
Radius: 0.2 pixels
Threshold: 0

This may help you out a bit!

Exactly like mine. I find the 0.2 pix radius very suitable and not so 'aggresive'. I use a reasonably high amount (400-500%) for my first pass of sharpening, then work on something lower for the following pass.
Hope it helps.  Smile

I too would recommend those settings! I use 0.3, however.
