  • Pre-screening request - Lehondre Photos

    Hey all,

    I'm new to Jetphotos and would like some help with my images. I haven't had an image accepted yet and I would like to know if I am doing something wrong during the capture or in post processing.

    Cheers,Click image for larger version

    I see three big issues with this image: centering, contrast, and processing. It is a bit too low in the frame, contrast is weak, and there are editing halos. It could possibly be fixable with a better edit.

      Thanks for the help!

      I ended up putting the contrast up and moving the aircraft up in the frame and did a bit of tweaking to try and get rid of the halos, though I don't really know how successful I was. Would this make the cut after these adjustments, or would I need to do more?

      Thanks

        Halos are gone and centering looks ok, but this version is soft, a bit yellow, and still lacks contrast.

          Alrighty,

          I've increased the sharpening (which may have brought back halos I'm not sure) and shifted the temperature to try and remove the yellow cast. I also increased the contrast. Any good?

          Thanks

                Hi screeners,

                I have recently gotten a new lens and have some new photos that I would like editing advice on. I've tried to replicate the editing process from the photos above and have ended up with these 5. Let me know what you think.

                Thanks and Merry Christmas!

                  I think all of the photos are soft. Singapore and Atlas are a bit better than rest, but still soft. Wait for the screeners to comment .
                  Cheers

                    2, 3: OK

                      Thanks darazarbaf and LX-A343. I have followed your advice and edited the pictures, but now I have a question. I am aware that there is a cap of 5 photos for pre-screening per 24 hours, so if I was to upload the re-edited photos and ask for advice right now, would that break the rule, or would it be ok seeing as they've already been posted?

                      LX-A343 do you mind clarifying which photos you were referring to? You screened 1-4 but there a 5 photos and I'm a bit confused. I've added sharpening to all of the pictures just to stay on the safe side .

                      Thanks

                        I started with the Atlas, sorry for the confusion. The SQ is borderline soft.

                          Hi everyone,

                          I have sharpened the pictures further as suggested and queued the two that were good to go. Do you reckon the new level of sharpening is appropriate? I also have two other photos that I have some concerns about. It was quite a hot and hazy day in Sydney and I'm worried that there was heat haze on the a/c. On top of that, the sky turned quite dull, which is another concern. Let me know what you think.

                          Thanks

                            IMO they are good to go. Maybe the QF Dreamliner is a bit too soft (borderline).

                              Thanks. I'll sharpen the QF 787 further and queue the 5 of them when I have available slots.
