Would This Shot Ever Make It?

Fri May 01, 2009 10:45 pm

Would or could this photo make it to the big league (Airliners.net) as is or through editing?

Quoting NIKV69 (Reply 1):

I'll paraphrase for you... you'll need to do some editing (sharpness, color, contrast, and brightness need to be addressed), and then re-size the image down to something like 1024x683 (at which size you'll submit it).

After that, people will be better able to judge its potential.

Doing a quick 90-second edit (and crop), I got this, which while not quite ready, is a lot closer to what you'd want to consider submitting.

However, I'm not sure there's enough of the wing to avoid a 'Motive' rejection, so editing might be a moot point anyway.

Wow Dana, you do some great editing. I was going to write that one off as having no chance, but your edit looks pretty good. It's got a chance now at least, nice landscape too.

I have to agree that the main focus of the picture is not the wing but the fields.
