Pre-screening Tguman

Wed Nov 21, 2012 11:35 pm

I had a previous thread on this picture but it has been a while and it got locked. this is a picture of a cathay 747 landing in YVR on a rainy day. I initially edited it like this.

B-HKF landing in YVR


Now I have gone back and tried again and this is the outcome.




I am hoping that I have corrected the color cast, as well as taken care of some of the noise and sharpness. Your comments and advice are most welcomed.

There's still a significant amount of noise, probably too much to do anything with.

Absolutely. I'm a bit surprised at that much noise, because it looks like it was shot at ISO400....I'd guess you had to brighten it a lot, given the amount of chroma noise in the shadows. Can be quite difficult in that situation to get an A.net-ready edit.
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".

Shot at ISO 400, on a 4/3 camera, I didn't have to do any brightening, just kept the exposure at around 1/350 and Apeture wide open. I think the problem is that I have had to sharpen it quite a bit (not a blurry image, but the lens I used is pretty soft).

Thanks guys for the input. Haven't sent this photo in, and I actually don't think I was actually considering it, just using it as a tool to get some other things sorted, like color and sharpening (frequent problems i have in editing.)

4/3s cameras will inherently have more noise, as their sensors are smaller than APS-C or full-frame.

That will contribute significantly to the softness, as usually only the best (i.e. most expensive) lenses are sharp wide open.
