Pre-Screening Of 1600px Daisy DC-3

Sat Aug 28, 2010 6:22 pm

Hello again!
Well, I'm trying to get a 1600 accepted here and wonder if it's good enough?

Thanks, Johnny

Quality is not bad, although anything at 1600pix is always pushing the limits. Can't say for sure about the motive either, the crop/angle isn't really doing anything for me.

the crop doesn't really work for me. As for quality, it is borderline for 1600, but why? Why not 1200 and call 'er good?

Sure, will do 1200 instead!
Regarding motive, I haven't got a whole lot to work with there as this basically is the full frame. I have other shots of it, but wanted the smoker to get in the DB.

I really liked the first version, but I have to say that the new crop works a little better. Just out of curiosity, have you tried a black and white version of this shot?

Stefan, actually not. I was considering it, but I feel that it's not always justified with b/w just because it's an old bird. I like the old SK blue longship dragon on Daisy so that's why I kept it in full colour.

Just to quick edits of the 2 above to show b/w:

Obvious question, but if you like the portrait format better, why are you using a 3x2 crop? Why not a 4x3 to at least try to get rid of some of the dead space at the top and bottom of the frame?

Quoting dlowwa (Reply 7):
Why not a 4x3

Because I sometimes need a kick in the ... to watch for other options, stuck with 3/2 by habit  https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/d1283108632.6378daisy120043ratio2.jpg

I'm by no means an expert in the photo screening business but I was curious to see how it would look as a more "true" black and white since it looks like the b&w examples you made are just from selecting the grayscale option. What I did was go into photoshop and apply an infrared filter from the black and white adjustments to give you a bit more contrast and I think it makes for a very interesting photo.

Piedmont, I didn't "just" choose grayscale, I used Black and White options and Auto...which is probably just about the same   I like the feel of your edit for sure, but suppose it would receive a Editing rejection. But, I like it!
