Thu Apr 19, 2007 5:29 pm

Hy all.
Have today received the following rejection for "soft"  Sad :

I'm seeking opinions and possible ways to fix it.
Thanks very much for inputs.

Ciao

Hey LIPH!

To me looks to be the back end of the Iberia titles and that centre section of the fuselage... On my shitty monitor I would say salvageable with more selective USM.

There are some little jaggies on the IB title and on the windows. Be careful there. As Carl said, you should do some selective sharpening, because the cockpit and the shape of the fuselage to the right are soft (if not a tad blurry).
The name 'Ciudad de Ceuta' and the nearby red/grey device (what´s the name for it??? sorry!) might get jagged if sharpened a little more.
Hope it helps.  Smile

Cheers!

Ok then,
will try a bit more selective sharpening. Thanks for input by now. If anybody else wants to help is welcome to do it...

Ciao

*raises hand*
I'd be interested (contact me via my profile if you want), is the original a RAW or a JPG?

Cheers,

That's a great shot. Just shows how silly the sharpness rules on this site have become.

Agreed, I am basically having to fork out stacks of money now on a new monitor because on the two that I have I simply can't edit to the required standards without asking someone who has a cinema screen how it looks.

Its good from a photographic standards perspective but bad for the amount of shots that might miss out purely because they can't be edited up to that standard.

Giovanni, it's a very nice shot, hope it makes it through in the end... A little soft around the cockpit windows which is strange because the nose looks sharp enough. Was it a case of selective sharpening gone a bit awry  Smile ?

I personally hadn't had a 'soft' rejection in a while, and then got two in one hit:

Any opinions, guys?

Giovanni, sorry for butting into your thread like this, but I just don't see any sense in opening another one on the same subject...

Cheers,
Andrei

Makes the case stronger for a generic 'Opinions Please' thread...  Wink

Quoting Chukcha (Reply 9):

I think more hits of USM over the whole aircraft could be used here... Seems a little blown out but i think the USM should fix it. Did you already re-try submissions and re-edits?

[b]Monteycarlos[b/], thanks for the reply!

Which one? I agree, the Learjet could use some USM, but the Yak seems just one little step from 'oversharpened'.

I actually did just that - gave some USM to the Learjet and a little selective USM to the Yak and re-uploaded them a couple of days ago, but I'm just not sure about the results...

It's not about photography, but there will be no need to open a thread on Tech/ops. It's a Static Port. It measures static pressure of the air.

Actually it's not. There isn't a magazine photo editor in the world who would insist on sharpness to the Anet extent. But when the Anet standards for photographic acceptance are being set by someone who is not a photographer, it is not surprising that some of those standards are rubbish.

This is true, but I would argue that the standards set by this site are the reason why it is so successful. Most people know that if they go to a.net to check out some photos that they will be of excellent quality. And lets not forget the differences between print quality and web quality.
