Critique Club Review

I really like this picture. You did an almost perfect job of lining uo the air plane and the road sign. Just a smidge higher would have been spot on. However, it is obvious that there isn't a whole lot of time to carry it off. The reflection across the sign is a minor distraction, but nothing fatal.

Overall the picture is a little dark. Brightened a bit and then adjusted for contrast and saturation if needed, this picture would look great as a poster.

What a terrific idea! Timing is perfect. This would be more effective if you lightened it up a bit and increased sharpness and contrast. These things are easy adjustments in any photo editing program. With those improvements I would have given this a 9. As it is I must score it lower. 6

Great shot! I like how the two planes are flying at each other. It's too bad camera's can't be set to two focal ranges, it would be asking for the moon and the stars to have the plane in strong focus, too. 8 Swash
(I don't know if the sign was bent, or what, but that streak across the sign....well, I just wish it wasn't there.)

Exposure could've been a little better here. But overall I really like the idea. Nice Job.

Nice capture, now lighten the photo just a little and you got it all. This way it's an 8.

Timing is crucial. :-)

Good idea - is this a road sign or not. Don't worry - I definitely consider this on topic. It looks like the sign is bent slightly - that's a shame because as first it looked like a defect in the image (especially the left edge of the sign). Also, the sign is perhaps a little too dark, but it's not too bad

Seized the opportunity for a photo

Nice catch... I maybe would have tried cropping off a little more at the top, and maybe some on the left but that is just personal oppinion. I like the bend in the sign, I think it adds character. Good luck.

I'd just like the sign to be a little brighter.
