Pre/Post-Screening (frankc)

Tue Apr 24, 2012 10:22 pm

Hello

I wonder of the image below would be fine in terms of centering, that is, I centered only the aircraft and not the aircraft plus its partial reflection.
The reflection shows only a limited part of the aircraft (looks like 50% or less) so I ignored it during centering.

Any opinions appreciated!

PS please ignore other possible issues with the image, this is only a limited edit.

Best regards,
Frank Clautier

I would probably raise it just a bit in the frame, but it might be OK the way it is.

Centering looks passable to me. There are other issues but as you noted not a final edit.

Thanks guys!

I eliminated some noise and oversharpened edges, along with a color correction.

Hi
I've currently 2 uploads in the queue of the same aircraft:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...y/e1335370416.741frankc_omvrd2.jpg
and
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...335564504.0476frankc_omvrd_day.jpg

Both pictures are taken on a different date.

Would these to be subject to a "Double" rejection?

Thanks!

Nope. Even if taken on the same date, they'd be fine, as they're showing opposite sides of the aircraft.

Many thanks Vik!

A separate issue is this rejection which I've got recently.

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...5_u1334594724.9077frankc_hbaff.jpg

Rejected for:
Dark
Level (personal note: needs CW rotation)

I can see the Dark issue, but I've trouble with finding the Level issue.

I used the horizon as a levelling criterium, and the verticals (the lamppost rising behind the aircraft and the little building near the right) appear to be in balance.

Any pointers near the levelling solution are greatly appreciated  

Cheers!
Frank Clautier

Hi

Would this one be ok for level?
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...dy/i1335885107.398frankc_dcawu.jpg

I levelled using the verticals on the buildings, but the pole still leans a bit to the left.
However, correcting for this pole, would make the all other background verticals lean to the right.

Cheers

Maybe a touch more ccw, based on the buildings. The pole would be misleading, so you are right to ignore it.

The color and contrast need to fixed up, but it could be salvageable. If it's your friend's, he will need to be the one who uploads it; you can't upload it from your account if it doesn't belong to you.

Referring to our conversation about my friend's photo: at present he doesn't has an account.
Therefore, would it be acceptable - in terms of legality - if I put in the comment field a reference to his name?
Thank you for your help!

Hello

I got this image rejected for level ("needs cw rotation")

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...10_c1335909162.276frankc_dcawu.jpg

If I would rotate this further cw, the verticals would begin lean to the right (I assume the screener(s) were using the lightpole in the middle as reference).

Any suggestions welcome  

Thanks!

Hello

I've got a shot of a Global Express, with quite some issues (overexposed,softness,dirty):

Rejected image
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...8_w1335782804.3278frankc_ecleb.jpg

So I worked on another photo, with different camera settings:
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...y/c1336858600.2948frankc_ecleb.jpg

However, as the photos were taken with the sun quite high in the sky, the exposure and contrast still look somehow problematic to me (especially when compared with existing images of the same aircraft).
I'm not quite sure if it would fit to the A.net standards at all?

Cheers,
Frank

Maybe a bit bright, but not too bad. It is a bit oversharpened and low in the frame though.

I used the horizon as primary reference, but since the pole behind the airplane is not perpendicular with the apron, it may suggest further ccw rotation.

Additionally, I'd like some information regarding the field "Operator" for this one:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b.../p1337790975.3651frankc_n525fd.jpg

At present, I selected: Operator - OTHER, using the title "Buddies".
However as this is a brand rather than an operator, I'm not sure whether this is correct. Alternatively, leaving it as "Untitled" doesn't seem to fit either.
Any thoughts?

Thanks a mil !

Quoting frankc (Reply 28):

Title is not the operator. Title is what it says on the aircraft, which is why most private aircraft are titled 'Untitled' rather than 'Private'. 'Buddies' is prominently visible on the aircraft, so that should be fine as the title. If you wish, you can include the operator in brackets 'Buddies (Operator)'.

Hello again,

The elevator of this Falcon 50 seems to vanish into the sky - I guess it's caused by the angle of the camera relative to the aircraft :

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/l1339191346.3009fgxtm.jpg

Would it likely trigger a soft rejection?

PS please ignore other issues, since this edit isn't completed yet.

Does this image feels ok in terms of Saturation and Color (White) Balance?
The original photo was made using an ExpoDisc and hence I didn't touch any color adjustments in Photoshop.
