A key phrase here is 'quality in = quality out'. Editing should just be like putting a bit of icing on a finished cake, rather than a huge effort to rescue a bad photo. Of course I'm not suggesting your original images are bad, but technique is often to blame when a lot of editing doesn't get the desired result.

Perhaps you could post examples so we can determine where the fault lies?

Cheers,

Karl

I see you have the same local airport as me.  

It's certainly not a bad photo but it does have slight faults. It's very flat (colourless) and a little too bright. There is also a touch of noise visible in the shadows of the port engine. It does however look like it can be pretty easily fixed.

The Etihad is not so good I'm afraid - quite noisy generally and lacking punch and contrast. It also looks very soft.

The A380 is backlit and suffers similar faults.

Cheers,

Karl
