As for the dust spots, only visible on the third?

As far as I could see, yes.

Sharpness is ok, the second one looks a little overexposed now. Light is quite marginal for that one.

Adjusted a bit of brightness here as well so the nose isn't as overexposed and details are better readable  Smile Tell me if you like the previous version better or this one.

Another one:

I suppose it might be a tad too dark and probably it has some other issues, anyways interested in your opinion. I also think it might be a bit low in frame?

Last three are a little bright, especially 2 & 3. The TG is a little low, but the light is pretty bad, so probably not worth trying to fix.

I see, will reduce the brightness on the last 2 and increase on the first LH. Light conditions were indeed variable so the TG will have to wait to join my a.net collection

Hows this? Only made minor adjustments to the brightness of the IB and Transavia as you said a little too bright haha. But the LH has had a bigger increase of brightness.

Exposure? Just leave it where it is. The light's not too great (especially on the IB, which if anything looks flat) so just put them through and see how it goes - just be prepared for issues with the IB.

Hi Dana,

I have been spotting today. I will tell you that it was cloudy, but I still wanted to have some feedback on some pictures. I have editted a first one, a Asiana 744F. I've editted it the usual way but with the sharpening I did the regular one like I do normally and a second edition with the High Pass Technique. Please tell me what you think.

Regular

High Pass

I thank you again for your time and the help you have given me in the passed (My latest pictures were all accepted btw).

Greetings,

Tom

Hi Tom, the verticals lean to the left, so CW is indeed needed.
I think the aircraft is a bit high in the frame too, given the large tail.

I'll leave the Austrian as it is, as when I took the picture I zoomed in so far on the plane that it resulted in not having enough space to rotate the picture. Anyways thanks.

What do you think of the Asiana re-edit? And I repeat my question, how would you remove the cyan and yellow cast (if it's still there)

Still looks a little cyan, but not too bad. You can usually balance out cyan by adding more red.

Hi,

First will be rejected for motive, the second two have a yellow/green cast and are partially backlit so will have a difficult time with the light.

Why the first one for motive? Because of the nosewheel that is blocked by the fence?


The other two indeed have a bit of backlit due to the sun that was already almost facing them  . I maybe should've chosen the opposite side of the runway as soon as the sun was backlitting the planes.  

So you guess, both the last pictures would not make it due to the light right? (after removing the yellow and green cast)
