There's a option named "Night / Dusk / Dawn" which is suitable for this kind of situation ( When the sun is lower than the horizon). Selecting this option would make us to re-consider the standard that we would make toward your photos since the photographying conditions have been changed


Wouldn't the image need to reflect this option in its aesthetics though? In other words, for it to qualify would it not have to at least look like it was taken after sundown? To me (no offence intended) it just looks like a daytime shot taken in poor light. There's certainly nothing visible to separate in from that category.

Thank you guys. I'll go back to the image and have a re-edit of it.

Hi guys,
Just wanted to know if there was any potential in this shot. Another one taken just a minute after sunset.

Hi Daniel,

The first impression for me about this Air Force B737 is overexposed (both sky and the a.c) and Oversharpened (many jaggy especially windows).

Regards,

Hi Daniel,

QR 777 is dark, soft, and noisy.

Best,
Amrit

Personally, I think the 2nd image is better than the first. The re-edit on the first seems to have not enough contrast between the sky and the aircraft and they are starting to blend into each other... just my opinion...

The contrast seems very high on my side. Not sure whether it's the issue of the sun angle of the issue of editing. I would prefer to Second Opinion this one if I meet it due to the photography time.

The Qatar images are borderline contrasty but would would be passable if that were the only concern. Both images looks oversharpened though. Jaggies are visible on the main title and underside of the fuselage.

Terrible light, blurry, noisy, distracting foreground, perhaps low contrast

Hey Daniel,
The light is not really good for this case. Also seems some CW rotation needed. Blurry looks alright for me, but it does look noisy at the dark areas like the bottom of the a/c. Our basic standard for the fences like this situation is that we allow fences, but they have to be lower than 1/3 of the whole image. In this case, roughly I think it's over 1/3 (mostly will get Motive for it).

Regards,

Thanks, I'll leave it in the personal collection for now.

Dark (obviously as it was at night), blurry, lots of compression (too much noise reduction due to the high ISO setting).

Compression looks much better, but there is a dirt spot in the lower left quadrant which should be removed.The "ATAR" titles, windows, reg, nose, etc still look soft/blurry.
