Pre-screening (Tyrolean4ever)

Sat Jun 08, 2013 9:55 am

Hi folks,

After a long break I decided to edit a few of my old pictures and queue them for upload. As I am a bit out of practice, I wonder if I got these right. As I like challenge, I picked some of my tricky ones:

1.) I-Fly B752

It was snowing that day so I had to increase contrast and saturation to reduce the negative effect the weather had on the appearance of the aircraft. The reason I like this one so much is due to the weather effect and the fact that it was taken in the blue hour.



What do you think? Does this one have any chance of making it?


1.) Aviastar-Tu Cargo TU-204

Similar sitaution here. However, instead of snow I had to deal with clearing fog.




1.) Austrian B737-7Z9

I wonder whether the sky is sufficiently denoised. I always try to find the ideal trade-off between denoising and keeping details. This is especially a challenge when there are power lines in the background.



As always, your feedback on these photos would be highly appreciated.

Best Regards,

Eric

The B752 is not very well lit, so the nose is overexposed.

The ATU bird looks good to go.

The Austrian 737 looks great, but the background is blotchy/noisy. I hope there something you can do to fix that, because the light on the aircraft itself is very nice.

Cheers

The light is really nice but that problem of the sky is common, and usually due to jpeg compression. Even if you save at max quality there's really nothing to do about it. Here they look for high quality photos on low quality formats...no comment on this

The first is both backlit and overexposed, so probably not much you can do to fix it. The second is a bit bright and flat, but should be fixable. The third does not have the quality to be uploaded at 1500 pix, but might work at 1024.

Hi all,

Thanks for your comments.

I already thought the I-Fly B752 would be one for my personal collection.

I increased the contrast on the ATU Tu-204, and here is the result:



Now I'm a bit concerned about the banding around the light beam emitted from the center lamp post. However, no matter what I tried, I didn't finf any way to further improve it.


On the Austrian B73G I have a different problem:



In my photo editing tool I denoise the image to certain extent and everything looks fine. However, as soon as I store it as a .jpg (even when using the highest quality settings, I get blue/cyan blotches in the sky. Also, the smaller format I choose, the worse they get.

Does anyone have any ideas how to further reduce these effects?

Looks better.

The banding is caused by the noise reduction you use, and made worse by compressing the image. You can omit the first step, but not the second. In any case, this smaller version doesn't look too bad. It is verging on oversharpened in some places, but otherwise should be worth a chance.
