    Default Matt737 - Editing Advice

    Hi! I would like some feedback on this pic. I took it a few weeks ago, and it turned out pretty nice, at least to me . Any feedback is appreciated, thanks.

    Hi, firstly I moved your post into the other forum where all the Editing Advice threads are.

    As for this photo, it's quite soft and it appears to have heat distortion in places. There also appears to be some compression artefacts, mainly in the sky top right. Maybe also some brightening up as it appears a little under-exposed too.

    How do y'all think the FR NEO will do? Then I also have a WN MAX that I was wondering about. The aircraft is centered horizontally, but not vertically, will it be accepted with some lighting edits?

    Both would be rejected for:

    1. soft/blurry
    2. obstruction, glare/reflection, soft, compression, noise, horizon, composition/center, quality

    It would probably be a good idea if you read through the upload guidelines, and then perhaps took a look at some already accepted images to compare to the images you are hoping to submit. You might see that that unfortunately such images (second one specifically) are nowhere near the standards necessary to be accepted.

    Hi again! I have read over the guidelines, and checked off all the standards needed to be accepted. Will these photos be accepted into the database?

    And also, this photo was rejected for being soft, and for their being image manipulation. Can someone educate me on what image manipulation is?

    Quality looks acceptable on both for me.

    Screener left a note about the aspect/ratio, but I can't really see the issue, so maybe for this one it's safe to ignore that rejection reason.

    So then it is just undersharpened? I'm almost certain this image was either 16:9 or 3:2 when editing.

    Very soft, yes, looks like due to heat haze which would mean it's probably not fixable. Also a bit dark/flat, but that's a moot point with the haze/softness.

    I saved your image to my computer and equalized it in PS. Correct me if i'm wrong but the sky has a lot of compression artefacts.

    Ok you are talkin about the Star Alliance 738 right? I think I see some weird stuff in the top right corner, if that's what you are talking about. Thank you!

    Ok so for 1. to me it looks like there is too much contrast and maybe sharpening. Is that correct?

    No, there is a halo around the aircraft where the color is bleeding into the sky, likely from too much (or poorly applied) noise reduction.

    Can't 'fix' it. Only thing to do is avoid causing it in the first place when editing.

    Is this better? I started the edit over, kept the same light settings, adjusted the crop because the plane was too high in frame, and took it easy with the noise reduction.
