Nice pic, but needs CW rotation

Not on my ordinary screen so 737 looks OK, 747 is a little high in contrast.

I entered these two pictures in the queue yesterday. Now, I am watching them on a different monitor (oh, I should invest in monitor calibration hardware) and I am doubting whether to pull them out or not.

Any advice?

Regards, Martijn

I'd be inclined to say that first one looks overexposed. The second looks great  Smile

Quoting Varig767 (Reply 4):

They both look backlit or a tad dark, probably as a result of the poor weather.

One from me, how's the angle? It's the only one I could manage.

Possibly a little over sharpened but that may be due to this tft-screen. I don't mind the angle myself. It's a good shot IMO.

Quoting EagleSpirit (Reply 6):

Nice pic, whites on the tail are a bit blown. To me no more sharpening is needed.

I can relate, I used to have a great chunky CRT, but was replaced with an LCD that barely told green from white! I'm no screen specialist but this Dell monitor I have is fantastic.

Quoting Bottie (Reply 11):

I can't really comment on what screeners would think of the motive, but I personally would upload that in a flash. What an awesome shot! What was the focal length?

Looks pretty good to me, there is always the chance of getting a motive rejection with these not so normal angles, but i think this one works quite well. Best of luck with it!

I just got a new camera, and after the advise of my brother for the last day, he finally said, go check out pre-screening. So, here is one I took today, and have done some sharpening on. What else can I do, or is the quality just not high enough?

You need to zoom in more, fill up the frame better or in this case, crop closer and see if the quality is still there.

Hi All,

I have a question about leveling this picture which i have already in the queue:

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/D-AIND_2510.jpg

Do you think the picture is level? Which point would you use for levelling?

Thanks in advance!

Quoting Carlos (Reply 19):

The verticals in the doors in the background. I think you used one on the left side, but on the left and right edges of the picture they should slant by the same amount.

So if the vertical on the right side is now slanted 1 degree, you should apply 0,5 deg CW rotation.

Quoting Gabriel3630 (Reply 10):

First one, cropped a bit tight, you've clipped the stabilizer also there is a bit a noise in the image, quality is not the greatest.
Second one, crop a lot tighter too much space either side of the plane.
Third one, same as the second image but there is something horribly going on in the background with the trees, have you used some kind of noise reduction software like neat image?

I'm out of practice so don't take me as gospel, but thats what I can see on my new iMac which I am trying to get used to as I have been using a PC for the last 10 years!

Hope that helps

Simon

Had a quick look at your image on my 5 yr old Dell CRT/PC and it looks good. Mind you I thought it looked a bit soft but I could be wrong, You see I'm trying to get used to this new iMac where my resolution is higher and the screen is light years ahead of the old Dell. So its hard to tell. I'm trying to get my own process up to scratch but I have to start all over again with this new Apple.

Hope you do well,

A very good affordable package is Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0, though I think this has been replaced with 6.0. It is more than enough to do what you need to do to get photos uploaded onto this site. You can get it for around €100. It will also handle RAW images if you ever go that way.
Be careful when trying to lighten areas that are low in light, by brightening them up you can introduce grain.

There is something I like about it and its not a bad shot but looking closely at the nose there seems to be a bit of compression going on as well as along the upper part of the fuselage and tail. I thinking you used the selection tool to select the plane, then sharpened the plane so as not to sharpen the sky, in doing so you have created this color edge. Now I could be wrong as I'm still getting used to this iMac but its what I can see. There is also a bit of grain.

That one please - first photo of VH-OQC in her proper registration, and her first flight into Sydney. (Can't find anything else with VH-OQC in the database, except for in the pre-delivery phase (F-WWSR)

I had a really tough job taking this photo, the light wasn't great - and the lens I used (a wide angle lens) wasn't particularly sharp. It was tough to edit this image.

I don't think it qualifies for priority screening - right?

I did edit another version of the image:

http://www.racerplanet.com/photoplog/images/2082/1_DSC_3761_VHOQC_081229.jpg

The low, scattered cloud at 300ft mentioned on the ATIS, combined with a higher, dense layer of broken cloud made these photos really, really tough to get.  Sad

3:40am in the morning - arrived at the airport at just after 6:00am! Talk about red-eye factor - no coffee either. The shades stayed on the whole morning.

4 minutes earlier, the SQ A380 flew in as well (9V-SKB), and not too far away was QF's other A380 (Nancy-Bird Walton). Qantas Drive is a really awesome place to photograph the heavy metal - especially with a wide angle lens.  Smile
