Help With A Photo

Fri Jul 06, 2007 4:48 am

Hi all!

With your help I got my first 2 pics accepted (on a first try) some weeks ago! Thanks for that!  Smile

From that same session I "found" this picture with the contrail just in front of the nose of OH-LQA
Big version: Width: 1000 Height: 667 File size: 330kb


To be honest, overall I'm not happy about the picture, the crop and the blown-out nose puts me off... but would the contrail add any value to it?

Thanks and cheers,
Joni

Hi Joni,

The picture is not really that bad, but unfortunately the engine exhaust goes all the way in front of the back fuselage, so basically everything but tail fin itself behind the wing appears blurred.

Not to me.

Hi Joni

Very nice pic!  yes 
It´s a bit overexposed on the nose, and looks like you´ve used some noise reduction application, am I right?
I don´t know if the shot can make it. First, because of the crop, as you say (leave the contrail out since it doesn´t add that much to the pic) and then because I think that the nose is a bit blurry.

Good luck with it. Try with a new crop, for sure.  thumbsup 

Cheers  Smile
