But what I see on my monitor, as sharp as any others I've seen, are the images after they have been through Photoshop. It looks as though the degredation takes place either in transit to Homepages, via IE, storage on their site, or downloading, for viewing, from Homepages back to my computer.
The prints of anything I've processed in Photoshop are also very sharp, with no evidence of noise.
Still baffled, of Ramsey.BTW, we were in Castletown today, as I took a lap of the Island, using roads nearest to the coast. No excursions to dead ends, like the Sound. How far round, since finding that was one of the objects of the exercise. The other was getting a coronation chicken bap from one of the two sandwich delis with which you're blessed.

I was using Firefox. In addition I was copying and pasting the images into PSP and the distortion was still there. My suspicion is that the quality is being degraded once the files are saved in PhotoShop.. bones bones@xxxxxxx http://woodair.net -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Phil Reynolds Sent: 04 September 2008 18:36 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] Re: Plane Spotting Just a shot in the dark, but have you tried viewing in a different browser?

Not today though! A decent lens makes it a realistic spot. Todays efforts were a test of the lens' VR capability, hand held, against a blustery wind. An idea of what comes into play can be seen from some of today's crop, though I can't understand why the Homepage versions are plagued by noise, when, at my end, they are noise free and very sharp. Any ideas under plain brown wrapper, please. Viewing link is: http://www.homepages.mcb.net/gwinsk/EGNS/ Gerry WinskillNo - he's ATC. Not exactly a sprog any more but sitting comfortablyin themiddle ranks. <g> As far as photographing aircraft goes from the any public areasRonaldswayis awful. Go down to the south side so the sun is behind you and theapronis too far away for decent shots. Go to the car park and you areshootinginto sun at aircraft that mostly have their backsides pointing atyou. Thereagain you get somewhat spoilt by having the advantage of being ableto takeshots like this from the tower: http://www.homepages.mcb.net/bones/WebAircraft/XV185_C130.jpg bones bones@xxxxxxx http://woodair.net -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of GerryWinskillSent: 02 September 2008 14:21 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] Re: Plane Spotting Hi Fred, It galvanised me into having a camera laden morning down there. Mind,Iwas outside the fence, at the Manx Flyers side, whereas I'd guess the chap who runs the site must be an apron worker.
