    The evolving future of the Airship industry and currently the largest Aircraft on the planet!
    Taken early the morning of April 20th 2017, the Airlander 10 sits patiently for more pre flight tests today before taking to the air once more. More information on this new breed of Hybrid AIr Vehicle here. https://www.hybridairvehicles.com/

    Size wise, I cannot be impressed as long as I see it on
    photograph but only imagine… "in real person!"

    The halo over the land could indicate the presence of
    fog but when I see the halo extending over the craft I
    really wonder… :cautious:

    o_O When did the default position become " Nice photo, wonder if its photoshopped to hell or is it natural?" :eek::eek:

    And yes it is natural

    I think the issue is that the noise and halo give the appearance of this being somewhat over-processed (liberal use of the clarity slider perhaps?). With ironically a little more time in post-production you could remove those artefacts and make it look more natural.

    Clarity slider wasn't even touched, other than crop, increasing exposure to lighten the foreground, adding a little warmth, minimal sharpening and conversion to jpeg there was no other post processing. The "halo" is early morning mist as the sun was coming up, pretty much all that landscape is farmland. A post processing halo would be over the airship too, it isn't.

    Perhaps its a combination of lifting the shadows and edge-sharpening (effectively what clarity does) that has caused the issues - they are also present on the airship.

    These are the areas that stand out - this is with the clarity reduced to -100 and you'll see the artefacts are still there.

    This is with +100 clarity, which increases the artefacts already present and adds more as you would expect.

    As I say, in post you could make this look more natural be selectively editing areas to get them looking how you want, then editing the lot as one image to make it look consistent. A final bit of noise reduction would help also. It's a solid image, but with a refinement it could be even better.

    couple of things.

    I do have no editing ticked in my avatar but that non withstanding -

    edge darkness ? you mean on the shadow side of the airlander? and this after you've edited a jpeg by reducing clarity? same goes for the supposed artifacts on both images

    heres a screen shot of the original raw for some reference too.

    I would be very curious to give it a try in my
    converter… Raw that is!
