    Are static propellors frowned upon? Have a few other shots where the prop was stopped. Hard to tell if it's blurry or soft to my eye still
    For helicopters, pretty hard to get otherwise.

      Oof. May have to take another look into the depths of my memory card on that one then!

      • Hey there JP Crew.

        3 fresh images and a different shot of the Lynx. I seem to struggle with choppers....

            1. Is this fixable on this image? Lens corrections were made but I can't crop this image.
            2. Okay, will upload
            3. I'll resharpen once my PC is back together.
            4. Odd as this is fairly tight on the crop. Again, this image had the lens corrections applied. I'll attempt to fix it on this image.

              Possibly.

              Noticeable in three corners, especially right side.

                Okay, rookie attempt no.1 at rectifying the vignetting manually. I've also resharpened BOPC. No other adjustments were made to the vignette rejection edits.

                EDIT: I've also added an utter longshot. This being an experiment with RAW editing for the first time. Whilst I'm expecting a contrast rejection, could you please feedback on any other rejections as well?

                  1-2. ok for me
                  3. soft, contrast
                  4. vignetting gone, but in brightening you've pushed the contrast up a bit so I'd consider it borderline

                    1/2. Epic. They will join the que when I have some slots again.
                    3. Well that's better than expected for a shot that I thought would be a noise rejection at least!
                    4. A slight pull back on the shadows maybe or is the issue more than that?

                      Exposure is ok, but I see someone could possibly confuse the harsh contrast/shadows with underexposure.

                        A few things done tonight. I've played with the contrast on the Lynx by reducing overall contrast and lightening the shadows slightly. The vignetted Citation had a color discrepancy which I've now adjusted (aside from color, nothing has changed in my eye but I just want to make sure I haven't bodged the colors up).

                        Now, I also had this rejection: https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8578979

                        I have now resharpened the image, could I get feedback on the new edit or is that not allowed on rejections?

                          1. contrast looks ok, but brightening it a bit has made some areas appear a bit softer (this often happens).
                          2. borderline contrast
                          3. quality ok for me

                            Okay. I'll resharpen the Lynx tomorrow. For 2, lack of contrast from changing the the color back? I'll reupload 3 when I've cleared out some more images...

                            In the meanwhile, I've been tampering with RAW files again.... Is it normal to find the exports of RAW files to be sharper than JPEGs from the camera?

                              Whenever you adjust one thing, all others tend to be affected.

                              Depends on your camera settings.

                              1. low in frame
                              2. harsh contrast

                                1. Well that image is a write off then. Aircraft was a bit low in the original.
                                2. Okay, I'll soften it up this evening.

                                In regards to museum pieces, if they aren't in the system but not flying, they aren't really hot are they? I'll be down at a museum tomorrow where I know there's at least 2 airframes not in the DB.

                                Also, aircraft being used as spares sources for another.... Do these count as wrecks?
