Qantas has quite some jaggies now, but noise levels look acceptable for me.
Etihad: aft part does look soft and needs more contrast indeed.

Hi Everyone

I am thinking I should give up on this one but thought I would seek some input before I do. I have submitted a couple of times and rejected all .. most recently for Blurry, Halos and Soft. I have run it through photoshop since rejection to bring back the noise reduction so hopefully this has solved the halos issue and have decreased the photo size to try and minimise the impact of blurry & soft. (below is a 1/2 size link)

Do you think this is now OK, or should I just give up on this one and move on.

Thanks

This is another one I am not quite ready to give up on. It was originally rejected for Compression, Noise and Contrast. (original upload - http://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/air ... cfaefb0fa3)

I have increased the contrast and also worked on the noise. Not sure how so solve the compression rejection ... is this possible? I have also shrunk it down in size from the original rejected image so that any flaws aren't exaggerated.

Your thoughts are most appreciated! (even if that means give up and move on :( )

.. and another couple that has been a bit of a work in progress. Qantaslink was a little oversharp and both had too much noise reduction .. and I have also made the file size smaller to the one that was originally posted here for feedback

Thanks in advance ..

Hi,
For the VH-VUW, i think you should give since it does look pretty blurry which might be caused by Heat Haze i think and it's irreparable.
Regarding to Jetstar, i don't know why the SC gave you Noise rejection since i don't see any obvious noise from it. Instead, it seems to suffer a lot from Noise Reduction because lots of details of the aircraft were lost which leads to Compression issue. Besides, you can crop it tighter, especially the right side of the image.
The first Quantas Link seems overexposed to me Quality and Sharpness looks iffy and marginal. It seems to have bit of Heat Haze i think.
CX A359 : I will let it go since it's pretty blurry due to heat haze or you did not focus it successfully. What's more, it probably will be rejected by Compression as well since lots of deatils were lost due to the noise reduction i think.
The second Qantas Link : I will let it go as well as it looks pretty blurry. It won't make it here i think.

Cheers,
Harry

Thanks Harry .. I guess I will just move on from all of these. Another opinion is always valued.

ChrisLait, your biggest issue seems to me to be the use of noise reduction, which images captured in bright sunlight really shouldn't require. You are trying to address the problem but until you address the cause you're going to struggle. The best thing you can do is change your technique so that you are not using NR; this should in turn make it much easier to process the images to an acceptable standard.

Take the latest QF 717, for example: ISO1600, f/10, 1/4000th shutter; you could have used ISO200, at f/8, and got a shutter of easily 1/800th, which is plenty.

Thanks JakTrax. I agree. I have been using NR to try and compensate for some of my earlier photos being shot in one of the profile settings on the camera instead of Manual mode. my more recent images are in the same range you describe and they are much better. For some reason I just didn't want to give up on these ones even though I knew they were going to be hard to bring up to a.net standards. I'll move on from these and with my settings now sorted, hopefully a lot better images coming!.

Thanks for the feedback, always appreciated. Sometimes you just need to hear it from someone else!

The 717 is blurry noise and you've got a dead blue pixel on engine #2?
The Thai is too red and needs better color balance.

Thanks Kas. Have given up on the 717. The Thai sounds fixable with some color balance so I will re-edit this one.

Thanks as always!

Just had this photo rejected for Halos, Soft and People??. I can accept the halos and Soft and work on these but people? Surely this is a mistake? The plane is 1500ft off the ground!! :-) (although if I am not seeing someone can you please let me know where they are?)

Thanks

LOL, i think it should be a mistake made by SC. But another two reasons are correct i think. BTW, it looks bit of Reddish to me and the quality is marginal i think.

The "People" box is next to the "Personal Message" box. Simple misclick. Personal message was: "Bright halo around the tail.".
