Need Help With Rejection (Dirty)

Thu May 03, 2007 5:43 pm

hello to all, i'm new at airliners.net. I'm viewing for a few years your very nice photos, and now i decide
it's time to join this community.

Therefore i was starting with my uploads with 2 photos, one was accepted but the second was rejected, because this phote has blemishes.



I'm ready to learn from my mistakes, but i don't see any dust spots. Maybe someone can mark the critical parts of this image, so i can make it better next time.

Sorry for my bad english  ashamed 

greetings
Adama

An equalized version of your image with where I see the dust spots...

Seems something weird going on with the tale but I guess it looks ok un-equalized.

Bitte.  Wink

its a good technique to keep in mind though. In PS create a duplicate layer, go to adjustments and equalize and it will show up all the dust spots in the image. Correct as required.

Indeed, that works very fine. I have another way of spotting blemishes that might be helpful. That is by using the Levels graph (you can first use the duplicate layer function as Carl said). Press Ctrl+L and the graph will pop up. Then you can set a value between 100 and 130 on the first space of ´Input levels´ (or press Alt+I and type the numbers, that´s if you don´t want to use the mouse). The whole image will darken and will show the dirt clearly. Then when you have spotted the problem you can correct on the underneath layer.  yes 

Hope it helps.  Smile

Cheers!
