Re: Pre-Screening - DanielK

Would like to see a larger image than what the link shows. Silhouettes are routinely accepted. Just cant judge this one based on the small image size.

Re: Pre screen - R5K

Hi Rich,

I see jaggies around the edges of the wings, tail, horizontal stabilizer, etc. The overhead light also drew the overexposed rejection. Can't disagree with the screener's assessment.

Re: Pre-screening please

Exposure on the PItts is OK. I agre with Kas about the color balance. Has a bit of a yellow tinge.
The formation flight is passable for me.
That picture of LUK from the air is very poor quality...lacks definition and over processed.

Re: Nikon AF-S FX TC-14E III with Nikkor 200-500mm lens

I own this lens, and I don’t think you need the TC. As mentioned above, I would not recommend it due to AF issues. Furthermore, the lens is probably high enough quality in most situations to allow you to just crop a bit more, if you really need it. Keep in mind if you’re on a DX (crop body) focal l...

Lighting is not the best for this image. Could use a boost to exposure and contrast to improve the lighting (check histogram). But, the nose area looks blurry to me. Too many issue with this one for me to accept it.

N7833A Window view looks OS. Jaggeis are visible on trailing edges of winglet, awing flaps and spoilers. Perhaps a little less sharpening or sharpen in layers and erase the jaggies.
The 2 AA ERJ's look blurry to me, especially 1JA.
