Photo Acceptance - Pre Screening (Alasdair1982)

Wed Feb 25, 2009 3:30 pm

Is that correct for the new individual thread format?

Would like peoples opinion on this one which I might attempt an upload of. Note, that's a compressed version on photobucket, not the full size version

Looks straight to me, red looks red, blue looks blue etc etc. Sharp enough?

Thanks

Hi,

Suggest you don't post reduced size versions, as it will be very difficult to say anything regarding the quality, in particular sharpness.
AFAIK, photobucket allows bigger size images?

Cheers,
Andres

As Andres said, use the full version not a compressed one. You can upload your image in your profile as well, then everybody is able to see the full version of the picture.

Yes.

Your shot is not centered btw, it's low in the frame.

As Codeshare said, it is a bit overexposed with a little too much contrast. Also, you'll probably get a distance rejection even though the aircraft fills the frame. There is a lot of stuff in the foreground.

Try a 3:2 crop instead of this weird one you're using now, which is between 3:2 and 4:3.

Better, but you have a lot of heat haze, and some quality issues. It's not too big, funnily enough. I would say size it around 1024 pixels across with a 3:2 aspect ratio.

Just a small tip, shooting around noon produces photos that are lit overall from the top, and as in your photo, the belly is darker. But sometimes the interesting stuff comes at bad times dont they?

Can understand, but if that is how screeners see it, it would be rather unfair if pictures taken only at certain times of the day when the belly and undercarriage is be lit up, are preferred?

I don't follow this 3:2 aspect ratio thing

We dont have a "bad light" rejection but those photos can come with more problems than those shot in better light

Yes and no. The dimension across is correct (1024 pixels) but now the image is too narrow. The 3:2 thing means that the ratio of width to height must be 1.5. Therefore, since your image is 1024 pixels across, it should be 683 pixels high. As of right now it's a tiny bit too narrow since it is 631 pixels high. In the application you use to crop, there should be an aspect ratio option, which you can select to hold it constant while you choose your crop.

Also, now that you've shrunk it, the quality has improved a little bit but the image is far too sharp. If you want to send me the original I can see what I can do with it, if you'd like.

G-CIVC is over-exposed. Both the Koreans are soft when enlarged.

Did a bit of sharpening to both 777's and uploaded them to my profile, deleting the two previous versions. But I just get the 'default' image' thumbnail

The Korean Air's right wing looks quite hazy and there is also haze in the quite a few other places.

As for the Blue Angels, there is something funky with the color of the sky.
Hope this helped,

To be honest i don't know if it will affect you in a positive or negative way but the sky under the Blue Angels definitely has more yellow hue than the sky above them.

Possibly there was some low lying haze the day you took the picture causing it be be yellowish only on the bottom?
