You'll likely get motive on both because the tug is blocking the gear and/or engine.

Nice shots, but it needs some CCW rotation (About 0.30), and it's a tad soft in areas.

Looks like you've been going crazy with the spot healing tool too, you've left trails in the sky with it!

Tom

Edit: Sorry, I'm referring to the second shot!

hi TupolevTu154,

 Wink I know that it needs a little rotation but i´ll cut of the engine then,so i don't rotate it. And you're right i removed a spot with it, i'll try to improve the second one. Where are the soft areas so i will sharp it selective??

@all
First shot good enough for ANET?? and do you really think that it maybe lead in a motive rejection? There are new creative rules and I already have a picture accepted with a tug towing the aircraft?!

Any help is greatly appreciated

John

I need some coffee, when I said I was referring to the second shot, I was actually talking about the first shot!

Anyway, the upper deck and cockpit could do with a bit of sharpening.

Chopping off a part isn't going to level the image. I've already done the hard part for you, so just type in 0.30 CCW and you'll be good to go  Wink Just remember to crop out the borders of course!

Good luck with it!

Both look to be underexposed.

Sorry but I don't think so.

And as a motive thing, yes I think it will...

I think you might get quality or grainy on them.. the picture is very grainy towards the rear of the aircraft, all the tail and the sky.

Both these shots are soft. What are you using to sharpen the pictures??

Still soft and I'm seeing JPEG compression in the green area on the nose of the Aircraft.

Still looks slightly dark to me too.

hi  Wink thanks for your comments,

I´ll try to do a better edit of one of them, i will attend your advices during that.

I sharpened the picture in PS CS3 with selective sharpening, now i'll try to sharpen with the unsharp mask tool.

For the while check out this one please and tell me what you think
