"motive" they don't want too many just tail shots.
|Quoting vikkyvik (Reply 3):|
It's tough to tell much about quality from a resized original, but your edit looks way overprocessed compared to the original.
It looks both soft and oversharpened to me. Did you use a fair amount of noise reduction or anything?
There's also noise visible, especially in the sky on the lower left.
Max covered the motive.
Color, I'm not entirely sure, maybe a bit red? The airplanes in the background look quite red.

Here is the original after only reducing color temp,
|Quoting vikkyvik (Reply 10):|
A bit off-level, oversharpened, still some slight noise in the sky, color still looks off (I think too red), and it's a bit low in the frame.
|Quoting dlowwa (Reply 14):|
Seems to get a bit soft towards the nose, and there are several large dust spots in the sky. Other than that, no major issues
|Quoting dlowwa (Reply 17):|
Sky is noisy, and yes, you will need to adjust the color further. It is too magenta/orange now.
|Quoting dlowwa (Reply 19):|
Maybe trying some noise reduction? It's not terrible, but it is noticeable.
|Quoting baldwin8 (Reply 21):|
Can someone tell me if the noise issue is looks better as I am putting a lot of effort taking the night shots and not yet ready to unload several thousand dollars for top line equipment.
|Quoting dlowwa (Reply 22):|
but if you notice around the wing and tail especially, there is some visible compression artifacts
|Quoting baldwin8 (Reply 23):|
The jpeg is saved as "12" Highest Quality. And of course I am working from a RAW format to start.
|Quoting dlowwa (Reply 24):|
Given how it appears to be localized around the transition areas between colors and straight lines (where you'd expect to se compression) I discounted it being noise, but it could be a bad masking job if you've applied any noise reduction in the sky. I don't think sharpening would have caused it.
