Hi,

First of all I am not a screener, keep that in mind ;), but here's what I think.

The plane looks oversharpened and soft. Did you used a tool to remove noise?

I have Dfine2 and I know that it could cause soft pictures if you remove too much noise.

Also the "TACA"" logo and the registration are jagged. This means that you've sharpened too much. An other thing is that you're photo is underexposed. If you have lightroom or photoshop it's simple to solve this problem. You can look around on the internet for some tutorials.

The picture could use some selective sharpen. I think that this photo has potential, but then you have to rework this picture.

Nevertheless I think that it is a very nice picture.

Hi victor!

For my personal opinion, the image needs a little bit more contrast, some ccw rotation.

Some parts are over sharpened, reg and another one is soft near central landing gear.

Victor, the answer to your question is. "It depends."

It depends on what you want to do with it, if you want to post it onto AP then I very much doubt if it will be accepted.

Personally, it is poor HDR being over processed with medium to heavy amounts of local contrast enhancement.

The detail in the sky has been destroyed, ironed out by over processing, while the detail on the foreground has noticeable amounts of local contrast enhancement. The aircraft itself is possibly OK but the registration is showing signs of over sharpening.

In saying all that it is just my opinion and it is your photo after all, it is how you see the scene and not mine, perhaps it will be OK for your own personal web site but not, I fear for AP.

I am a purist when it comes to HDR trying to get the most natural looking picture that a possibly can, that's what it was designed for and not for grunging images.

Why did you feel the need to process it in the first place?

Looking at it, the dynamic range is not too bad.

This topic is about HDR.

I also want to share a HDR picture with you.

Do you think this is good enough for this website?

I dont personally see why people have to severly over process photoson here and call them HDR, most just look simply awful. Theres so many photos on this website of so called creative photography where people have taken photos and grossly over processed them. There is a difference between proper HDR and half of the stuff people have uploaded on here. HDR done correctly can look good in some cases.
