Acceptable Shot?

Sun Jun 10, 2007 6:31 pm

Hi

Would this shot of a Merlin at the Biggin Hill Air Fair get accepted on the the db. I like the shot but because it is not centred I guess it could run in to problems here.

Comments?

Cheers

Graham

hi, I think it's a great shot, maybe just add a little bit of sharpness. Thanks Yuan Le

The current version of this photo won't stand any chance on airliners.net. You need to remove the grey stripe on the upper border of the picture, it is too soft and you didn't use the shadow/highlight tool properly (-> note the bright sections around the rotors and the belly of the helicopter).
Otherwise and if edited properly this is a very nice picture and definitely worth a try.

Thanks for the replies.

Don't know how I missed the grey line, obviously a cropping error on my part. Will try and get the sharpness up and sort the highlighting.

Thanks

Graham

Hi Graham

Just like what others said, this image would be rejected for editing (haloes around the helicopter), border. And also slight blur maybe exists in the original shot which makes it look soft somewhat.
