Photo Acceptance - Pre Screening (RonS)

Tue May 12, 2009 5:09 am

Hello guys.

I have this photo of this Swiss Airbus A340 that I am trying to get accepted. I've done some editing, but for some reason I get this blue tint on the upper part of the fuselage. I'm not sure if I'm doing some thing wrong, or perhaps that this is a nightime shot...well, just after sunset. Do I need to do anything special to get rid of the blue tint on top besides the usual level, crop, levels, contrast,saturation, sharpen?

Also, I'm levelly challenged. Should I use the runway in back to level this?

This one I used a house: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...5f07BWk5dJIOa8DhIQ?feat=directlink

And this one I used the runway in back as a reference: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...YLnMbms43KVmiYHupg?feat=directlink

Thank you!

The second one looks better than the first. There's a blue tint in there......but it is just slightly unlevel, just slightly......

The verticals near the centre of the shot are the most reliable reference for levelling.

Spiderguy, do you think the 2nd is unlevel? I could re-level the 2nd one if it has less of a blue tint.

I would like to find a way to remove that tint!

Second, less blue (hopefully)

Yes, the 2nd is unlevel. It needs small bit of CCW rotation. And yes, the blue tint is lesser. You can have a go at it.

Hello guys. I just want to see if I could get a few more comments on this Swiss aircraft. I also want to understand why I'm getting that blue tine ontop of the fuselage. I also don't want to waste the screeners time by submitting something that I think is good, but I know has an issue or two.

Any other thoughts about this photo and why I'm getting the blue tint and what can be done about it ?

In advance, thanks!

There is also a noise problem, I think you sharpened it too far, there is some evidence under the motor, but if you sharpen you have to watch out that you are not going too far, hence the noise will be sharper too, or better it is getting more obvious. Or your pictures was underexposed and when you try to get it lighter will introduce noise as well. The blue can be a white balance problem, try to change that, maybe the result will become better.

Yes, I agree with you slight noise. I find it VERY difficult to not get any on these dusk / almost night time shots. I shoot ISO 200, nothing more.

I'm going to try some minor noise reduction. And yes, I might have oversharpened...it was a pretty sharp shot to begin with, so maybe I over did it and can get away with less.

Thanks ruudb!
