    How about these photos?

    Emirates - I hope centred nicely, with contrast and colours just right. I have sharpened, but not too much as to induce jaggies.

      Thank you.
      Same issues as before: overprocessing and dirty. A fair amount of noise visible on these as well.

        Ok - In general how do I go about removing halos? - I can't seem to notice them - how do I detect them, as you do?

        Looking at this photo below, there's no dust spots, but are there halos in this photo?

        Thank you for your patience!

          You can't. You can only avoid them in the first place.

          Look for dark areas of the sky next to lighter parts of the aircraft, and light areas next to darker parts.

          No halos, but slightly dark & oversaturated.

            ok - toned down the saturation and added a bit of brightness...

            Good to go?

            Thank you, dlowwa.

              Some light halos now. I'd also raise it a bit in the frame to be sure.

                How to avoid jpg compression artefacts?

                Just had this photo below rejected for "jpg compression artefacts".

                Ive only edited this directly from the original RAW file then converted it to jpg ONCE and uploaded that file.

                1. How can you tell there are jpg artefacts?
                2. How can I avoid this problem, given that I've only worked on the original RAW file, then converted to jpg.

                Many thanks,
                Arnold.

                  When u export make sure you're exporting at maximum quality.

                    Yes - I always do at max quality, hence Im a little perplexed.

                    Which part of the photo looks like jpg compression? - Could it be that I've over sharpened the image, and that's made it grainy in the sky? - is grainyness sometimes considered jpg compression artefacts?

                    Thanks.

                      Are you importing raw, and exporting jpeg?

                        I simply open my photo editing software, edit the RAW file, and convert/export as a .jpg (always at max quality) for upload. I also save the changes to the original RAW file.

                        For any further editing, I simply go back to the RAW file and work off that.

                          Sounds like you’re doing it right, try other photos and see if it is still compressed.

                            I ran into this issue a while back where I thought I was exporting in maximum quality but actually wasn't. If you're using Photoshop, try using the "Save for Web" feature rather than the Export feature. That seemed to fix some my compression issues when saving the final upload image.

                              Ok - I hope I've refined this photo adequately - please confirm if now up to standard to upload. Thank you. Still working towards my first upload, would you believe!! lol

                                A few things I'm noticing...

                                1. Seeing haloing around the nose wheel and main landing gear.
                                2. Lighting is very harsh. I would try to reduce the highlights a bit more.
                                3. The background and the aircraft itself could use more noise reduction.

                                A little iffy with photo quality but I'll let others comment on that.
