Pre-screening

Sun Feb 25, 2018 1:25 am

Hello everybody! Learning from the last time, I would be glad for every feedback to help me fix any problems regarding photos before uploading (B737+An-12). Thank you for helping a newbie again :)

My thoughts:
1. Transavia B737: Aircraft is high in the frame. With the B737 family, and especially from this angle, the tail plays a larger part in the composition.Otherwise it is acceptable.
2. AN 128: Acceptable for me.

Happy to help out!

Both are high in frame for me, but otherwise seem alright.

So I should center it with the tail as the highest point and the lower line of the fuselage as the lowest point? Again thanks for feedback.

There's really no easy rule to use for vertical centering. The best way I can describe my process is that I want to find the visual center line as if your image was weighted and you were trying to balance the top against the bottom. The fuselage holds a lot of "weight" because of it's area and width, but the tail offsets this somewhat because of it's height. However, because the tail doesn't take up as much area as the fuselage, it doesn't completely offset the "weight" of the fuselage. So in the case of your 737 photo, I wouldn't center between the top of the tail and the bottom of the fuselage... I'd think about halfway up the tail, perhaps. I also take into account the colors (light vs. dark), textures, and importance/prominence of various things in the entirety of my photo... but it's an intuitive process for me. You'll develop your own system and an eye for what the screeners here are looking for over time.

Good explanation by Kaphias. Try to center based on visual "Center of Gravity". Even with that there's some individual perception as indicated by Kas' and my view on the the An. A lot also depends on the angle. If the tail dominates the image, then it plays a larger role. In the B737, there seems to a lot of blank/empty space below the aircraft which makes is HIF.

I'll try to study the subject more and play with cropping again. Thank you all for the help :)

I've found that if you look at a thumbnail view you can get a better idea of the composition.

In the 16:9 crop the aircraft is high in frame. Can't really judge the quality, as Flickr doesn't always display photos well.

Thanks for your advice, I repositioned the aircraft. In Flickr you can download the original file in full resolution.

Hi.

For me this photo lacks some contrast.

Best,

It's got a yellow/green cast and needs more blacks and contrast. Should be easy to solve if you're shooting RAW. Also a bit soft.

Hi,
The colour looks ok now but it still can have more contrast i think.Besides, it also looks slight soft i think.
I did a quick editing which i think would be better by adjusting the contrast (Did not adjust sharpness and others) :

Cheers,

Hi, thank you for your advice, but it seems engines are hopelessly soft, I fear adding more sharpness will the rest oversharpened. Anyway I got this shot from EDDK and a night shot:

Czech Airliners : Looks overexposed to me and the colour looks weird kind of cyan i think.Also looks slight bllurry and OS to me.
Star Air: Looks low contrast to me.Also bit of underexposed i think. Sharpness looks iffy to me.

ATR: blurry, OS, overexposed, green
767: flat, too much noise reduction

WB adjustment option of my editor is very limited. I'll try to fine tune it latter. Thank you for your advice.
