Post-screening Soft Sky Lease

Thu Nov 08, 2012 6:18 pm

I'd welcome a bit of advice on this one which has been rejected as soft. This is the second time it has been rejected - the first time being for low contrast with no mention of softness, but I can see that it does look a little soft.

What I would like to know from an experienced eye is whether there are particular parts of it which look soft or whether it just needs another pass of USM over all of it. I know that the red diagonal line on the fuselage looks a little soft but I always find that these lines can easily look oversharpened (a big problem on PIA aircraft) - am I right to be cautious with that?
Thanks in advance.
John

It's actually not too bad, just needs a touch more sharpening on the fuselage/titles/wing (basically center part). Tail and nose look ok.

Thanks for help on the Sky Lease. I've now had this one of an RAF A330 Voyager rejected - this time for being oversharp and also dark.

I'd be grateful if someone could point out which bits look oversharp as I'm still not a great judge of sharpening.
I'd also welcome comments on the 'darkness' - its a difficult one to get right because of the angle of the sun - and these aircraft are a strange shade of grey anyway - they always look (to my eyes at least ) a bit darker than most grey military aircraft.
Many thanks in advance.

I don't really see it as being oversharpened, but the dark appearance is due to the harsh light putting half of the aircraft in shadow. You might be able to fix it with a better edit.

Thanks Dana - I have a slightly earlier shot as it lined up on the runway with a little more light on the side of the aircraft so I'll edit that one and give it ago.
