    3-4. borderline dark/contrast
    1, 3-4 - I'll boost the exposure and add a little more contrast.

    For 2, can you offer any advice for editing pictures of black aircraft?

    Thanks in advance

    I have these 4 images kicking about on my editor at the moment. These weren't originally going to even be uploaded but the edits have turned out better than I thought. All 4 were taken on less than ideal days. Would these be instant contrast failures? OE-FNP and ZM326 are the better ones by far in the original images and I'm hoping the editing may of saved them a little bit.

    Can I get your thoughts on this one please? Lighting wasn't fantastic and not sure if I've oversharpened it.

    2. sharpening looks ok; maybe a bit bright.
    3. editing halos visible.
    4. very soft. probably not fixable.
    1/4. Okiedokie, I shall scrpw those two. I'll adjust 2 and 3 and then upload them. Thanks bud.

    I do have some images for perusal....

    1. Would this still be overexposed? The exposure seems a lot better to me now personally but I'm still not sure if this is correct. According to the histogram, this is mildly underexposed but my eyeball says it seems correct.
    2. The sharpening has been amended but I'm not sure if I've now oversharpened it? I can't see anything obviously wrong with this now otherwise.
    3/4. Too much of a lack of contrast? Both had sunlight from behind me. I also think the Diamond may be at risk due to the glare?

    Still appropriate to poet that image here?
