Hmmmmm. I've been shooting for a very long time and I've never seen colours like those close to sundown - I'd expect more red/yellow. With the UA the whole of the rear above the gold cheatline looks a touch soft to me, but the titles look oversharp. Could be the light, though. Not sure I can see bl...Jump to post
Both look a bit cyan to me and the UA looks soft/blurry in parts (and oversharp to compensate). Karl So they were both taken just before sundown, so the colors look more or less as they did at the time. I thought about correcting the white balance for the UA based on the fuselage, but then it didn'...Jump to post
Hi all, I have a couple more images I was hoping could get pre-screened. Here are the two:
Southwest 737: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/ai ... a0c6f34277
United A320: https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/ai ... 472d9c05f4
Thanks in advance.
Talking about yields, I flew LAX-HKG round-trip in October for ~$350 on HX. And the cheap fare was basically the only reason we took the trip. Delta does not want to chase yields like that so, IMO, they won't be returning anytime soon. They can always connect customers through ICN via KE if they nee...Jump to post

First off, I think this post would be better off in the Photography Feedback forum. The mods may move it there. Second, the sky is definitely a bit noisy in this photo. I don't know about the "motive", but you may get a rejection there due to not much else going on in the frame (other than...Jump to post
Looks alright to me. airkas, I just got a rejection for the image above that you thought looked alright. The rejection reasons were "soft", "low contrast", and "noise". Is this worth an appeal? I don't really see the soft or noise, and at least at this time of day the ...Jump to post

I think the SDAA has actively been seeking a second Asian carrier. I’d like to see ICN service as it would provide excellent connections to SE Asia (particularly Philippines and Vietnam) Yes it would be awesome if KE started up SAN-ICN. That would make it easier for anyone in the Delta/Skyteam camp...Jump to post

OK all, so I just had this photo rejected for being "soft": https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/9/1/7/5313719.jpg?v=v433a30f0d2a This was one of the ones I had pre-screened.

Ok I re-uploaded the Etihad with a bit more sharpening. Hopefully that does it.

I see a bit of over-sharpening (jaggies) on the trailing edge of the tail including the insignia on the tail. If you applied sharpening using a layer, you could apply the eraser tool and remove the sharpening in that area. Did you resize and sharpen your previously edited version? I recommend start...Jump to post

Front half of the aircraft looks blurry. Seeing some minor halos around the tail and terminal building in the background.

Thanks all for the feedback. For the 3rd image I agree I may have over-sharpened it a bit, but I'm still trying to get a feel for the sharpening "standard" here. Both RAW images look plenty sharp to me when I pixel peep them. It is just after resizing and sharpening I'm having a little tro...Jump to post

So I'm going to just say that I don't think your current gear is limiting you at all (unless you are short on reach on the long end at 300 mm).

I caught some good video of the launch last night and edited it together with the SpaceX webcast footage.
If I were in the market for a 100-400mm lens this is probably the one I'd get. It is supposed to be quite sharp and the price is right. And even though it is not the fastest lens ever it should be fine for most aircraft spotting (daylight, bright conditions) . What about overcast conditions? Well, ...Jump to post
New Sigma Contemporary 100-400mm with more flexible focal range than Nikon 200-500mm can be a good option for cropped Nikon D3300 giving you that extra range you need for close-up shots, airshows, shots from the long distance with cool morning or evening air without heat haze.

Boeing got exactly what they deserved here. I don't feel sorry for them at all and hope Airbus sells thousands of C-Series jets.
Instead of trying to innovate in the marketplace they tried to sue them out of existence. I'm really glad it bit them in the backside here.
One thing that hasn't been mentioned in this thread so far (may have been in the article but I can't read it due to the paywall) is the past and future mix of 787 variants and how that could affect the gross margins on future deliveries. Taken from Boeing's website, this is a summary of the 787 prog...Jump to post
What are the odds that either DL or KE starts a SAN-ICN flight as a result of the JV? I could see it happening in a few years depending on how things go.

I would think that the 777 wing fabrication center could also be used to produce cfrp wings for the MOM and NSA when they are launched.

I don't have a particular model to recommend, but I would recommend getting one with a fluid head and adjustable drag on the panning mechanism.
