Prescreening - CaptainStefan

Wed Nov 21, 2012 5:55 am



These two probably have a lot wrong with them, so - are they fixable, and if so are they unique enough for the effort?

Not sure how the first is unique, but the second is a less common view. Both would be rejected as-is, but might be fixable.

First is overexposed, needs contrast and might need some sharpening.

Second one needs contrast (maybe then adjusting the exposure as well) and needs a LOT of sharpening.

I would also crop in closer on the sides in the first one.

Very cool angle on the 2nd one! Where was that taken?
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".

You'd have to be familiar with ATL - in order to pass the tower at that angle, you have to rotate from 27R in about 3000 feet. Not something that happens every day with a 747.

Ok, so are we talking 4-5 passes of the unsharp mask? I am always paranoid about oversharpening the shots.

From the John Hancock Observatory. My 70-200 was in for repair that weekend, so I am amazed that I came out with any usable shot shooting with the 55-200 through those dirty windows.

Fair enough, but early rotations won't qualify an image for any special considerations.

Hard to say without knowing how good the original is.

Oh, my mistake. I didn't mean unique in terms of getting special consideration, just in my personal endeavor to avoid the 'boring side-on' trend. Should I upload the raw (but size appropriate) shot for you guys to look at?

You can, or you can contact me directly and I can take a look.
