RE: Determining Spotting Conditions From METAR/ATIS?

One important information on the METAR is the temperature/dewpoint spread. The closer the dewpoint is to the actual temperature the more likely it is that you will have high humidity with bad visibility. So if e.g. you have a temperature of 15 degrees and a dewpoint of 15 with little or no wind, the...

Hey Tom, the histogram is a great help when editing photos but screeners are not supposed to use it when screening, so if you doubt the contrast by looking at a photo it is safer to increase contrast beyond the histogram values. I think an additional 10 units will do the trick here. Regards, Thierry

The closest one has the most impact imo, so that's the one I'd chose.
I do admit though that the wider one has some appeal by showing more of the landscape.

The widest one is stretching it a bit too far for my taste.
