Worthy Of Airliners.net?

Thu Jun 19, 2014 9:45 pm

Hi All!

I'm wondering if there are any images here http://www.image120.com/aviation-samples that are worthy of airliners.net. What images have a chance with getting accepted into the database? What do I need to work on?

Thanks in advance,

Calvin

After a quick glance, I'm sure there are some in there that are worthy. But to be honest, with 50+ photos in there, a quick glance is all they'll get from me.  

Pick some of the better ones and post them, and I can take a closer look.

Hi,

As Vik mentioned, please pick a few of the ones you think are the best. As has been mentioned before, the mods would prefer you keep your pre-screening requests to one thread. There are some photos in there that look close to acceptable.

Thanks for looking and for the response (thanks to John as well).

Here are some of my best pics from the gallery:

1) http://www.image120.com/aviation-samples/h23949d96#h23949d96

2) http://www.image120.com/aviation-samples/h23949d96#h23949d96

3) http://www.image120.com/aviation-samples/h1d1ae64e#h1d1ae64e (this shot was screened and accepted to JetPhotos.net, but was rejected from A.net... I can't remember why).

5) http://www.image120.com/aviation-samples/h140aa1ec#h140aa1ec

6) http://www.image120.com/aviation-samples/hc8644ff#hc8644ff

Well, those would be some of my top Airliners.net "worthy" (in my opinion) shots from the gallery... what do I need to do to get into the database? What do I need to do to improve?

Thanks again!

Hi,

1 and 2 are the same image.
1. Looks oversaturated, maybe a bit harsh on contrast and soft.
3. Soft, dark, a bit noisy.
4. Flat, blown out sky might be an issue, looks to need a bit of CW but that is hard to judge.
5. Low in frame, soft, maybe a bit dark and grainy.
6. Low in frame, funky halos everywhere, looks like HDR, which is not allowed here. Vignetting in the corners, also needs CW rotation.

A quick glance: Nice photos, I enjoyed watching them! Unfortunately, many of them are backlit or tails, which are not accepted here.

The Mitchell, China Airlines, China Cargo, El Al and US Airways seem fine and worth trying.

As Vik said, tail shots are accepted here. You would just have the select the Tail/Winglet option when uploading.

Speaking of tail shots... would this one be acceptable? > http://www.image120.com/aircraftphotos/h332cfaba#h332cfaba

How about this shot? > http://www.image120.com/aircraftphotos/h2aa7be65#h2aa7be65

Hi,

The Yukon tail looks a bit soft in areas, maybe a bit flat, and vignetting in the corners seems to be an issue. The other one seems dark, I'd also bring the crop in tighter on the right.

Quoting BriceJohnson (Reply 9):

Are you showing us resized, edited images? Or are these full-size images that are being resized by the image host? I presume the latter, since you can order large prints....

Besides motive, there's not much use commenting on full-size images resized by the image host.
