what else should i do to this before sending it to a.net


tigher crop perhaps? more light under the belly?

1) Clone out the many dust spots. This is the most obvious problem. I see more dust spots in that photo than I care to count right now. :)

2) The aircraft is quite low in the frame and would get rejected from a.net for that reason as well.

3) Tighter crop needed on left and right, although the plane is not horizontally centered as is.

4) Apply a little bit of the shadows/highlights tool to bring out some of the detail underneath the wings and on the belly.

5) Needs a little more sharpening.

Those are my thoughts. Hope its helpful.

I agree with Josh's advice.

But for the highlighting, I would recommend using the magic wand tool to select the background, and then invert it so you have the aircraft highlighted. THEN use the dodge (highlight) tool. This ensures that you don't halo the plane with surrounding brightness.
