USN C-40A Shot - Critique Me

Mon Apr 30, 2007 7:30 am

I uploaded the following shot to the "other site" but wanted some of your opinions. Here's my current edit. I have the original for those interested. I'm honestly just curious what you will come up with, and if its even worth uploading here. Thanks in advance!

Nice shot! Problems I see: Dark and Centering. Some selective lightening, position the plane lower in the frame, and maybe a teeny bit of USM - that might make it it acceptable. I'd be happy to have a go at the original, if you'd like.

I'm in no way a pro, but here is my attempt

It's brightened a little bit so it takes some of the darker highlights out - I'm not sure if that's what you want or not. It's also re-cropped and I added some USM. Like I said, I don't know if that's what you're lookin' for...
