    Yikes, sorry Tommy for making it sound so malicious, but I really met no harm. Don't be angry! :D

    The following two shots are in the upload queue:

    I still can take them out and make corrections, so if anyone has any ideas on how to make them look better I'd be thankful to hear your comments.

    Parts of them look a bit soft IMO (which isn't worth much), so I don't know how they will do.

    For editing, did you follow a workflow or what?

    None the less, nice shots man!

    Nick thanks a lot for the words of wisdom and encouragement. I decided to pull my picks out of the queue and take another glance at them.

    LOT: http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ ... 12406g.jpg
    Two things here; the nose got an extra touch of sharpness with the "unsharpen mask" and the belly.

    Aeroflot: http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ ... 12406g.jpg
    I used the "unsharpen mask" for the belly, with just a slight correction.

    Now I have to wait four/five days to get a decision. For those who want to donate an extra photo slot on a.net to me now is the chance. :mrgreen:

    I was going to say that the nose of the Aeroflot looked a little soft but it looks better now. However I feel that with the extra unsharp masking on the belley on the LOT the pixel factor has gone up a bit and now makes the belley a little grainy.

    All of the shots you submiteed are great, I love the Turkish!

    I saw that coming, so once again out of the line and back in:

    Thanks for the "heads up" Gordon.

    No problem Jakub. In addition don't start to micromanage either. You will drive yourself nuts. I would have left them in and see how the screening went and went from there. Good luck with the new uploads and let us know how it goes.

    the lot looks overshapened (the S in Star for example) and soft (nose, Polish Airlines)

    Watch the Aeroflot it looks like you have some jaggies near the edges of the wing. I think the LOT looks fine. The Star Alliance titles will always have some jaggies based on the thin font, yours looks good. I'd keep it as is.

    I don't agree on that. some selective sharpening (ie erasing 50% of the sharpening) on the S should make it a lot better

    Yeah, Matt, I can see that rejection, it's underexposed (use your histogram to judge exposure), the wheels are very much soft, along with the belly, and the AMERICAN is sharp along with the edges of the flaps, lots of jaggies there. Try some selective sharpening in photoshop.

    To comment on Matt's rejection my shots from September 9th also didn't do very great, as Mel pointed out to me the light was crap that day.
