Re: Return Flight: Hangzhoget the subway line to the airport.u to San Francisco on United's 787

I like the HGH airport - small and clean. The only problem is getting to town. Long lines to taxis and no trains. Maybe eventually they will get one of the subway lines directly to the airport. I flew several times in and out of HGH on my first China trip. United meals look like they have gone thro...

Hi all. I've been lurking on this forum as a reader for a few years, but this is the first time I'm attempting to do a TR on my own. Hopefully this works out well! Sorry about the differences in quality of some pictures here, some of them are screenshots from videos I took using a different camera. ...

Here's my third edited version. Is the sharpening okay for this one? Also, I feel like I improved the banding situation compared to the second edit, but is it still an issue in this version? What about contrast and color balance?

Re: Postscreening - Banding, Low Contrast, Noise

I realized I typed the last post too quickly and said overexposure when it was really supposed to be "oversharpened" instead. Is oversharpening a significant issue in the second version that wasn't present in the first?

Apologies.

Re: Postscreening - Banding, Low Contrast, Noise

I uploaded the edited version and it was SO'ed then rejected for banding (again) and now overexposure. I am guessing that the overexposure resulted from the contrast increase? Is this photo salvageable in any way? Or is it a completely lost cause? http://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/9/9/1/...

Would the contrast in the new edited version be acceptable? Would that version be worth a reupload?
