Post Screening Help for a Beginner

Mon May 29, 2017 6:22 pm

Hi guys,
i am new to aviation photography and have a question to one of my photos.
https://abload.de/img/dsc_3991twun0.jpg
This picture was rejected for blurry, compression, soft, quality, noise and contrast.

I thought this was a good picture, but as i said, i am still a beginner. So i hope that someone can help me out and tell me where the problems exactly are and what i can do better.

Thanks a lot

Hi,
Regarding to your photo, just some parts of the aircraft seem to soft i think. But ... noise is ok for me and i do not see blurry and compression problem appear. But i think it indeed has low contrast issue here.Just give some to it will be ok i think.

Cheers,
Harry

The aft fuselage looks a little blurry/soft. Noise isn't that bad, but contrast could be increased a little. Still not a bad attempt though!

Thank you for your help. Contrast is the thing i struggle most with.
What do you think now?

Just some sort of advice (can't really judge quality & sharpness as I am not on my editing monitor).

If you struggle with contrast and are using Photoshop or PS Elements for editing, just use auto-contrast. It works fine 95% of the time and will show you what to aim for.

Contrast is an improvement for sure, but the photo is now oversharpened. How large are the sharpening steps you do?

I did it with Pro Sharpener from the Nik Collection on 15%. Do you think it is better without the sharpening?

Well, i would say .... it is too oversharped actually. You can see obvious jaggy around the title and other parts.

Regarding sharpness, the ideal sharpness lies between both versions.
