  • Pre-screening Request

    Hi there, after a bit of a hiatus I felt a bit rusty editing and thought it would be worth checking these before uploading. Thanks!

    Hello. I see that both images are overprocessed and first is cut off.

      Both images are soft and overprocessed (editing halos). Crop is acceptable on the first.

        Hello g.forwood!

        I have the same opinion like dlowwa. But these reasons are fixable. Try to add more sharpness and don't use the shadow/highlight function in your editing software (and if you shot JPEG and have a Nikon - set "D-lightning" to off).
        Of course correct the exposure - you can check this with the histogram in Photoshop or with the screening tool on JetPhotos.

        Regards
        Julian

          Thanks all for your feedback. Julian, you were right, shadows/highlights was the culprit. I've altered my process a bit, how are these re-edits?

          Re: the crop on the first image, there were two opinions offered - is the crop okay or would it need to be altered?

            Processing is acceptable on the first, but still far too heavy on the second.

              Thanks Dlowwa! Is the issue with the Fedex that I've brought the shadows up too much? I tried to select just the plane to remove the halo effect but I'm guessing it isn't enough. I have done a re-edit below using just the curves and contrast sliders. Is this more on the right track?

              Thanks again for your patience!

                Processing looks fine, but you've now run into the actual problem: the light is quite harsh at this angle/time. It will need to be brightened, but doing so will likely lead to either parts of the fuselage being blown out, or the shadows being unnaturally light, with halos accompanying. Softness also apparent, if you decide to try another edit.
