    Default Pre-screen -DARA

    Hi guys,
    I've been very interested to know if any of these 3 shots (Taken with iPhone 7) have any chances to be accepted into Jetphotos DB. Happy to hear screener's advice on them:

    Best regards,
    Dara

    All of them are too compressed. In addition:
    1: soft
    2: soft, colour, contrast, leaning to the left
    3: backlit, soft

    Thanks for your reply.
    Am I doing the bad editing or they are not salvageable at all?

    Hi Dara,

    1 may have a chance, the sky looks a little blotchy and it seems a little jaggy/oversharpened on the wing but it might be worth a go.

    2 very much has a small camera vibe, the ground has lost a lot of detail due to the aggressive noise reduction the iPhone 7 has (I also have a 7 and I'm very disappointed with how overly processed the images straight from it are). Using an app which allows you to shoot RAW (or rather DNG) and processing that file you'd probably have a good chance but I'd say that's a personal collection shot. The horizon seems quite a way off level as well.

    3 also has a chance although the contrast is quite fierce, that's more to do with the light at the time than the camera. If you can lift the shadows a little so the contrast isn't quite as aggressive then I'd say it's worth a go. Here's a quick example:



    Hope that helps!

    Hi again,
    Thanks for your reply guys.

    Unfortunately I can't see your example and It's now showing up. I did another go on 2 of the shots. Are they any better?

    The sky in the wing shot is hugely improved! I can't guarantee it'll be accepted but I'd say it's worth a go.

    I think the contrast is still too strong on the Wizzair. The problem here isn't the fact you took the shot on an iPhone, it's that the sun is lighting the aircraft from the front so the top is bright but the underneath and rear are quite dark by comparison. A RAW file from a DSLR would record more tonal detail so you'd have an easier time working from such a file but there are still things you can do to this one, hopefully a quick example will show below! It hasn't had any overall brightness added as that would blow out the front top of the aircraft, I've just lightened the shadows a little. Again this would be a tricky situation even shooting with a DSLR but again it might be worth a go.

    One thing I would say, if you do try uploading them avoid the temptation to say in the comments you took them on an iPhone. You want them to be judged as photos rather than iPhone photos.

    Hi guys,
    I wonder if this shot has a chance to be accepted in JP Database. Happy to have your comment on it:

    Hi Dara,

    Sadly I suspect not, there's no direct light on it and with the bright background there's nothing you can do in editing to improve it. It's also quite low in the frame. One for the personal collection I'm afraid!

    Hi guys,
    I'd be happy if I can have some advice on this shot:
    https://behrazco.com/wp-content/uplo...4-IAI-1600.jpg

    I want to know if it's going to be a hot shot because of the new condition? And if it's even going to get accepted with this light?

    Best regards,
    Dara

    Not sure which 'new condition' you're referring to, but since it's no longer flying, probably not hot. As for the light, the contrast is a bit strong, but I wouldn't say it's an automatic rejection.

    Thanks for your quick reply. Can I have your opinion on these shots too? I know they are not perfect but maybe might have some chance. Maybe smaller size would help?

    1. contrast, color, borderline soft
    2. soft
    3. soft
    4. contrast

    Smaller size won't make much of a difference, I think.

    Do you mean the contrast is too low or the opposite? Are they fixable?
    The first shot was a rare one for us in Tehran. So I really like to know what can I do about it. And the BAe 146 of Mahan Air is retired so I'm not able to capture it again. If they are fixable I really like to work more on these two.
    Cheers,

    Both were taken in poor light, but the Mahan might have a chance with a better edit. The first has little chance I'm afraid.

    Try adding some contrast to the Mahan (will also need some sharpening on second look), and we can see how it goes, but I'd say chances are borderline at best.

    Worked on those 4 shots. Are they any better?
    https://behrazco.com/wp-content/uplo...055-1400-2.jpg Added contrast and worked on the colors a bit, also added some sharpness.
    https://behrazco.com/wp-content/uplo...LBU-1280-2.jpg Sharpened a bit more.
    https://behrazco.com/wp-content/uplo...PUB-1280-2.jpg Sharpened a bit more.
    https://behrazco.com/wp-content/uplo...MOK-1400-3.jpg Added more contrast.
    Thanks for your guidance;

    2: maybe slightly too dark, but has chances to be accepted
    3: soft
    4: dark

    Hi guys,
    I don't have any experience uploading these kind of shots in JP so can I have your opinion on this one as an example?

    Looks a bit dark/soft, but overall not that bad.

    Hey guys,
    I like to know if I can re-upload a photo that is cropped by 2:3 to a 16:9 crop?
    And if I can request the admins to remove the date from some of my shots?
    Thanks
