    1. oversharpened
    2. borderline oversharpened, but probably ok

    Again, both better at smaller resolution like 1280.

    A bit too soft for 1800pix. Probably better at 1280 or so.

    Yes, the dark/contrast issue relates to the strong shadows. Mostly a factor of the light conditions when you were shooting. There are a few places on the aircraft that show oversharpening, though it's not too severe. Sharpening is best judged by looking at where there should be hard transitions or fine detail (registration, livery, landing gear, are good places to start). If the transition is unclear and one area fades into another, then too soft. If there is a very harsh transition on the other hand, then the sharpening is too much.



    Other than the dust spots, would be ok for me.
    Thank you very much for your patient guidance and help.

    In addition, it has always been one of my weakness that I cannot accurately judge whether the sharpness is appropriate or not. (I simply used the settings of some similar photos when adjusting the sharpness of this one.) Could you please point out in detail from which position the sharpness of this photo is not appropriate? And it would be nice if you could inroduce more tips for judging sharpness.

    This one was taken within half an hour of the last one and used the similar parameters. The post editing process is quite similar as well.

    Please give me some guidance if I ignore something. Thanks in advance.
    Not dark, but borderline contrast, and some sharpening issues as well.

    I will try to do better in future pictures. Thanks for your help.

    I just got a rejection of https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8042586 , and I have some different ideas.
    There indeed a crest on the left side of the histogram, but that simply means the background is dark, actually the aircraft itself is almost overexposed even if I added a little bit exposure (also shown in the histogram).
    As for the color, the color of the white area near the windows is quite accurate (R:237 G:239 B:240).
    Therefore I don't think this photo should be rejected. Is there any problem I overlooked? Please give me some advice.

ID:	1086500I found that when the whole exposure is right, it's easy to overexpose some parts of the aircraft because the light is uneven (for example: the tail and the front gear in picture.1). In addition, for the white balance, I chose to restore the white color that makes up most of the body, but other colors would be very inaccurate (for example: the blue part of the aircraft in picture.2 became a very strange color). Are there any ways to avoid these phenomena, or just leave them as they are?

    File link does not seem to be working. For night shots, biggest issues are usually related to exposure/contrast (due to limited light sources), blur (from long exposure times), and white balance settings (artificial lights often have tricky colors).
