    Hi,

    I've just got the results of my latest tranche of photos back and got one out of about 17 accepted. Glad you liked my Swiss A340!

    The dominating reason for the rejection of my shots is Soft/unsharpened. Indeed, it has come up many times before. I used to think that this was simple blurring, i.e. moving the camera too much, but was pleased to see that it could be sharpened using the software I have.

    Can you tell me how? I'm not really terribly au fait with all the features and with so many rejections of this description over the past few months, it would be nice to know!

    Here's the shot anyway:

    Photo ID 367934 was rejected from the database.
    Airline: Swiss
    Aircraft: Airbus A330-223
    Registration: HB-IQI

    Reason(s) for Rejection:

    - Undersharpened (Soft)

    If you are using photoshop, use the Unsharp Mask.

    These settings work well:
    150% 0.2 0

    Use this once or twice.

      Hi John

      The pic you showed here is *almost* perfect in my opinion. Just a tad more of sharpening, as suggested above, will do it. This goes also for some of your other rejected pics.

      Just a question: are you using an LCD monitor? If so, try to sharpen until you think, it's almost too much. LCD's tend to show a too sharp image.

      Regards

        LCD=bad

        A kick of USM on most of those would make them very nice.

                I know a guy who lives in Las Vegas who has been known to edit on a laptop.


                Check your mail John, you'll find you had more success with your latest batch ( I know cos I just screened some!!).

                  Many thanks for all your help. I'll try again with these when I get home this evening.

                  Thanks EGLL; I've just been to my mailbox. I'm up to 153 now. I suppose getting that far without actually knowing how to sharpen photos is an achievement in itself!

                  Gerardo, I'm jealous. It must be wonderful having such an absolutely terrific airport as your home base. I wasn't intending to be in ZRH. I went to FRA initially (for the UK bank holiday weekend) and it was miserable - grey, grim and wet. Thankfully, ZRH was superb.

                      Many thanks indeed, guys, for all your advice and help. I've found the Unsharp Mask facility and I've done the needful, so I'll re-upload the new shots over the weekend.

                      Thanks a lot.
