Pre-Screening - McG1967

Sun Feb 25, 2018 1:29 pm

I've recently got a new camera (5DIV) and am trying to work out the best settings in Lightroom when editing for things like contrast etc with it.

Could I have some thoughts on these shots:






I'm aware the last shot has some visible dark areas where you can see it was shot through a fence, but would like some feedback on the processing.

Hi mark,

Here are my thoughts:
1. Ethihad A330: soft and needs some additional contrast. You could try toning down the brightness--the glare on the tail is distracting as well.
2. Virgin A330: Needs a tighter crop on the elft side--closer to the tail/tail cone. You could also try balancing the crop between the 2 engines. In its present form, the horizontal stabilizer is prematurely cropped.

3. Emirates B777: Again, the horizontal stabilizer is cropped prematurely on the right side. Balancing the crop close to the engines should do it.
4. Virgin A330: Looks acceptable for me
5. Virgin A330: Same recommendation as #2 above.

Hope this helps.

Hi Mark,

The quality looks very nice on all of them, but photos 2,3 and 5 need a better (more balanced) crop. I can also agree on the bit more sharpening of photo 1.

Jehan / Kas,

Many thanks for your input. I'll re-crop 2,3 & 5 and work a bit more on photo 1.
I won't upload all of the VS shots.
