Photo Critiques For Potential Upload

Wed Nov 08, 2017 4:51 am

Got a couple of pictures that I would like some critiques for potential upload. Let me know what you think, and what I need to do if there are issues with the pictures. Thanks.

For starters, the files are too big like this. I recommend starting with 1200px wide.

The Cub is blurry on the front section and main wheels. Not sure if resizing to 1200px will mask this.
The snowbirds needs a much closer crop. It's too distant as is.Could be salvagable.
In the Hornet photo, there is quite some vignetting going on and it has a blue/cyan cast. The subject is low in frame and needs a tighter crop in general.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback. Resized and adjusted the edits as follows:

The Hornet:

I've adjusted the hue and saturation of the blue, but the vignetting was caused by the aircraft being up against the smoke and clouds. Did what I could to knock it down, and cropped it some more to bring the aircraft up more.

Snowbirds:

Performed a much tighter crop as requested.

Resized the photo only.

Ah, that's starting to look better indeed!

My thoughts on the above 3 resized versions:
- The Cub. I like it and it's a nice panning attempt. The blur could maybe be masked by adding some careful sharpening, but no guarantees.
- Snowbirds. It's noisy and the tail and nose look a bit blurry. Unfortunately I don't think that one will make it.
- The Hornet looks a little blurry as well. A bit underexposed due to the light, which doesn't seem great. I'm not too sure about that one.
