Weird looking background? - Page 2

post #11 of 25
can you do a 100% crop of the plane (somewhere sharp) and 100% crop of the background? i am pretty sure it is just motion blur.

or better yet type out the shutter speed.

If you really want me to do the crops I will but I'd rather not. I think my shutter speed was 1/80 I can't confirm this though.

Haha, I was right! Yippie! I can also tell how unbalanced I was.

The image isn't very sharp. You're aperture is too high which causes diffraction and low shutter speed. The filter (even cheapo ones) is certainly not the problem.

Also, don't be afraid to raise your ISO to something like 400-800.

If only I would have read this before going to the airport today haha. I'll keep that in mind the next time I go. Good news is that I see my self improving.

Big points on just lighting alone. I hated that noon-day light you had at the beginning of the thread. Everything looks nicer at sunrise/sunset.

What was your settings on this one? It's still pretty soft.

This was done at sunset.

F/stop: 6.3
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/160

and to me it looks a bit washed out.

I don't know, the aperture is optimal. Maybe you were panning to fast since even the foreground is a little blurred from what looks like panning. Try higher a ISO like 400 or 800 (or even 1600 with that 7d sensor) to get maximum shutter speed. Don't go higher than f/8. I would try to catch the plane on landing without panning.

But to be honest, those trees are probably soft from atmospheric conditions. Those runways take a beating and they get very hot.

To me the exposure is pretty spot on. If it's washed out, just boost the contrast and saturation a bit. If you shot this in RAW, pictures will always look flat and muted until they've been properly processed.
