  • Advice required on this !

    Hi all,

    I've been having a high % rejection figure lately, take a look at this shot:-

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewqueued_b.php?id=1077939

    Queued this shot tonight and wanted some feedback on it, chances of it getting on or where am i going wrong ? I have photoshop CS on my PC and use jid's workflow more or less.

    Regards
    Martin.

    It needs to be levelled and it also maybe looks soft around the engine (could just be my computer). It appears to me to be a bit too high in the frame also. That's it, as far as I can tell.

    Nice picture by the way.

      I agree, but in addition the photo looks oversharpened to me (jaggies on PIA titles and green band in particular).

        The jaggies could also be a problem related to resizing the image, meaning that you should not resize down immediately to 1024, but rather do it step-wise.

          To me it almost looks as if you're sharpening before you resize, at the same time you're not sharpening enough. Make sure you do all of your sharpening after resizing, and do it in steps so you can control jaggies on the cheatline. You've got a nice starting point.

            The queued pic will most likely be rejected, at least for horizon.

              Word.

              Martin. You should follow Eric's Comment. as if you're sharpening the image before resizing, the Photoshop will have alot more space to work on due to the "large" image. Resize if first and then you can edit it (Sharpen by using USM) This is because not only the photo is much smaller, thus photoshop makes it easier to sharpen, and "wont" turn out that soft like your rejected one.

                Many thanks for the good advice chaps, i will rework the shot tonight and try sharpening after resizing the image to 1024. I have levelled this shot using the measure tool in PS2 using the edge of the runway as the guide, so not sure what else to use as the guide to improve this, any ideas ? The car park in the background isnt level and slopes from right to left ! Hard to get it spot on level.

                Best regards

                  I have checked and rechecked, You're good to go on using the Light poles at the parking lot. They should be okey to be used as your level preferences.

                  I'd say you need to turn it "1,03" CCW.

                  Btw Pls mind to send me a copy of the orig to my email @ [email protected]

                          Can any of you guys try to open both thumbnails, the one from Macca (1024pixel) And the thumbnail I posted above ^^

                          Somehow it looks blown on that photo in the database, and check also the creamy colours, its also gone in that one accepted into the database.

                          @ Macca , try to resubmit this photo and replace it with this 1200pixel photo. (If you want to, ofcourse.)
