RE: I Feel Encouraged Today....

Luton is always good for a surprise. The regular traffic is not that interesting imo but during my few visits over there I always got some nice specials. If only the weather was more predictable in the UK...

RE: Photoshop Image Size

There is a way to improve the quality significantly:
Resize in steps, eg 2600px -> 2200px, 2200px -> 1800px and so on.
Just try and see the difference, especially useful for shots of planes with thin cheatlines that turn out jagged in the resized version.

jop, they want all copyrights for that price. 60 Euros seems to be their rate for special pictures because they also offered 40 Euros for the less spectacular picture showing the plane while leaving the runway.

It's not because of the pilot but because of the weird crop. There is nothing special in this picture that would justify such a tight crop. Check out the 'nose'-category to see which crops work and are acceptable to the database.

sold the picture to some newspapers and magazines already for a quite good fee.
It's just that I'm really annoyed by such an offer. It's a joke to pay the photographer 60 Euros and re-sell the pictures for hundreds or even thousands. That's insane!

For the noise reduction you'll have to get a special software. Google for Neat Image or Noise Ninja and download a trial version.
