  • NewScotlandLad - Prescreening request / editing advice

    Hello,

    I've recently begun plane spotting and photography and am on the journey to improve my photos/editing to the JP standard. Still working through some settings and trying to get the perfect weather conditions.

    I have this one that I would like any feedback for editing/JP suitability. Day was a little overcast, which didn't help, but it was a new registration (on its ferry flight, no less), so I thought I'd give it a go. I don't love the fence top in it, not sure if that might also be a strike against me.

    Appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

    NSL.

    Unfortunately the contrast is too poor in this one to make it worth uploading. As you note, this is due to the overcast conditions. Other than that, the aircraft is also soft and too low in the frame.

        1. dark/contrast. not fixable
        2. soft, (harsh) contrast
        3. soft, borderline centering/noisy

        These don't really have the quality necessary for 1600pix, so maybe best to stick to 1280 or lower.

          Thank you once again. A better day, condition-wise. Perhaps some better photos. Still working on my editing workflow as well. Thanks for any thoughts/advice re: JP suitability.

            Images are soft and noisy.

              As far as softness goes, it's becoming a theme. Is this simply too soft a photo and I need to work on taking a sharper photo, or could I continue to work on this in post? I use unsharp mask a fair bit, but want to avoid over sharpening as well. Just curious for any additional thoughts on this from crew or otherwise. Thank you.

                Can only guess, but it seems the originals might be soft themselves. You can try to hide this with careful editing and lower resolutions, but it would be more work than simply starting with a sharp image. Post one of the originals (unedited) if you'd like confirmation of the starting quality.
