37 years of age ain't exactly new, but good shoot, slightly out of focus but higly airworthy ;)

Excellent capture - I wish it was bigger, but it gets the point across instantly.

10 - pure 10 - :)))

There's a lot of pixelation around the wings. Could you have made the image a little bigger? Interesting take!

Your title says it all I agree the planes are not opposites

Neat subject and nice colors of the sky. There appears to be a lot of digital 'noise' around the subjects. I am also seeing interpolated pixels (square blocks) in the upper right. This typically indicates the use of digital zoom or post processing pushed too far.

good composition, but not crazy about the square crop, the planes need room to move in the frame, they look like they are traped.

This looks like it was relly worked on an image editor!!

Not sharp enough for my liking, and a bit too small to really enjoy. It is a great opposites image though, and as a plane buff I find it has interest to me on that level as well.

While I think the concept is certainly solid, the color pallette is a bit too flat for my taste (stronger saturation, maybe?), and I also feel that this is one of those rare instances that I would want to see some motion blur on the subjects, just to get across the fact that they really aren't just hanging models. That's a personal choice though.

Great capture of two stunning machines. I guess this is a blow up of a distant shot or shot a big zoom due to the lack of detail on your subjects.

Really try to use the whole 640 pixel width range they give you...it's hard to make out details on the small photo. Good concept and capture; wish I could see it better.

Very blurry and pixelated and quite honestly the angle doesn't add anything..
05/12/2004 02:32:31 PM
Somehow I don't think these are flying together, even if, the photo is really blurry and needs some sharpening work.

pic is a bit small, noisy and not sharp. neat shot though. i see definite jpeg artifacts inteh upper right corner of the sky - check the forums on resizing and compression for htese challenge entries and perhaps check you software for other options.

less than 4K. The limit is 150K. I realize this was probably a crop of a much larger image, but it was still compressed way too much (JPEG compression), especially if this was the highest quality setting on your camera (which i hope is not the case)
