  • saligrama - Prescreening help/editing advice

    I'm aware that these need to be edited somewhat, but I'm fairly new to photography and editing and would like to know how to work with these. How should I try to edit these? Also, could you tell me which are unsalvageable and what camera settings I should be using while spotting to yield good images? I'm using a Nikon D3500 with a Nikon 70-300mm DX VR lens.

    Yes they will need to be edited. You might want to start by looking at the upload guidelines, and then comparing similar images that have already been accepted to the ones you hope to submit.

    There are also multiple editing tutorials online/Youtube that can suggest workflows, but there is no one correct way to edit an image. Relatedly, while there are things you generally try to avoid (too high ISO, too low shutter speed, etc..) there is no one setting that will apply to all photographic situations, so it would be best to again, find a tutorial online for the basics of photography (exposure triangle, framing, etc..) and then come back here when you have specific questions for aviation photography.

      Could you check the following for contrast and softness and tell me what I would need to fix?

        Hi, please read here thoroughly when you get the chance, especially #6:

        https://forums.jetphotos.com/forum/a...ning-from-crew

        We don't prescreen images that can't actually be uploaded. But even correctly sized, this image is likely to have too many problems to ever be accepted, so maybe better to rework it or try a different frame.

          Could I get a prescreening on the following 5 images? Looking mainly for advice on contrast, exposure, and horizon/centering. Also can I select night shot on the TAM PT-MSX and Azores CS-TSF?

            1. contrast, soft
            2. soft
            3. borderline contrast/soft
            4. borderline soft
            5. backlit, horizon

              Thank you dlowwa, I've fixed and uploaded 2-4. Can you check this one for contrast, exposure, and horizon/centering?

                this 787 looks nice, maybe just a tad dark, adding a bit of contrast would be good

                Regards
                Alex

                  Thank you Alex, I've added a bit of contrast and exposure. Can you check this as well as a 757 I've done?

                          Thank you, can you look at the Lufthansa again as well as a few others? I tried to clone out the dust spot I saw on the Lufthansa, but not sure if I got all of them.

                            I am not a screener but here are some things I notice.

                            3: A330 has a yellow/green tint, 4 appears low in the frame, and 5 is heat hazed.

                              1. dirty/overprocessed (poor dust spot removal), borderline horizon
                              2. soft, borderline cut off
                              3. ok
                              4. borderline centering
                              5. heat haze, centering
