    QuebecAir,

    There is really very little that can be done in Photoshop to alter a photo that could not also be done with a print photo in a darkroom. Photoshop only makes it easier and less time consuming. Ansel Adams is generally considered one of the greatest photographers to have lived yet very few of his final prints looked much like the same shot as it came out of the camera. Photography is an art that takes place in more than just the camera and the same skill that sets up and shoots a good photo can often improve it later either in a darkroom or in electronic post-processing. It's all part of the same art.

    True it can be overdone, such as uploading a type of aircraft in a livery that it never carried in reality. But simply improving what is already there to it's best possible visual presentation should not be considered a cheat somehow.

    film for the second time, the only shots from the 717 that were grainy were ones in poor lighting.

    The sad part about all this is that Ryan uses an F717...

    And I feel the same way about people using the clone tool in!
    I never said I was going to upload it, It is not a photograph. The only edit I do is slight color correction and or contrast. Oh, I also do sharpen which is the opposite of this. It is the Photographers call because if he does do a good job, the screener will NOT know. The photographer sets their own standards, where are yours?


    Sharpen
    Color correction
    Contrast
    ETC....

    Or, the screener just checked one of the standard rejection messages. The screen page only allows one entry to be selected or free text. The latter is time consuming and only needed for special occasions.

    RYan, to be honest, the chances of this picture beeing accepted are somewhere around 0%. That's a perfect "bad motive".

    Very nice and I was shooting 200 Kodak for overcast conditions. I love your idea of layering and using the erase tool. Thanks

    Ryan,
    I think the rejection was based on the "Various" you used in your photo data, since there was only one aircraft in the photo that was complete the type should have been 747 and the airline Northwest.


    Derf,

    When you first posted that Concorde shot I ran it through Neat Image and then layered the filtered image over the original in Photoshop and used the earser tool to earase all of the filtered image but the airframe. It came out like this:



    To keep your grain down when you go out shooting again get a film with a lower ISO like Fuji Provia 100. Then be sure to have it processed by a quality facility, not a 1 hour type place.

    OK, could that mean I checked a category I wasn't supposed to? Only one way to find out, reupload.
