Pre-Screen - Another Longshot?

Fri Jun 21, 2013 1:12 am

Any chance for this shot or is does the light ruin it? Ignore the watermark obviously...

The light is not great but I don't think it ruins it. I do think it could use a bit more brightness/contrast.

Might be a touch high in the frame also.

I've gotta be the only weirdo that thinks the light is solid. Goes nicely with the weather and the greys on the aircraft itself.

Agree that it could use a touch more contrast, or just a slight lift to the white levels.

Cheers

Thanks guys, maybe I will give it a go and see what happens since it looks like two out three think it may be OK.

Here is a new edit with the suggested changes: http://machimages.com/temp/A.net/pre-screen/162890KRNO06102013.jpg
I am not sure if I went too low, but knowing A.net it may be OK.

This would be rejected for dark/harsh contrast.

Cool! I was at Fallon on June 12 and all of VFA-204 was there. Then at Reno-Tahoe on the 13th but didn't see much.

Yep, that's where they were heading to when I photographed them. They had diverted to RNO the day before because NFL wasn't open from what one of my contacts that talked with them told me.

I hope you got some good shots at Fallon!
