Stunning livery and shot!

Nice shot, but AAL needs to wash that aircraft.

Thanks Dwight and Roy!
I worked for American many years back in the 60's and mid 70's they had that paint job and then changed it to the red white and blue paint jobs and all we was 727 707 then 747 and DC10 BAC 1-11's but never a 737 while I was there much less with that paint. but looking at the flight logs below blows my mind.

In the 90's we had a 757 painted in the same scheme.
AAL doesn't need to wash the plane - photographers need to keep their "hands" off the sharpen and saturation buttons, a little is good a lot is wrong.
Awesome shot!

Thanks for the comment markstar, I went back and looked at the original file, full size,those vertical streaks on fuselage and the 'smudge' around the front door are there all though not as pronounced as what I uploaded. I used a filter called 'tonal contrast' that did that, as far as over-sharpening, that was another program called 'define', combine all that with downsizing a large file by 2/3rds and whatever FA does once it's uploaded, it's not always gonna be perfect, but it got more than a few stars so I'm happy about that, you should post some of your photos!
I suspect that the vertical streaking on the bare aluminum of the fuselage might be the result of chemical de-icing compounds or airborne contaminants that might not be so obvious under different lighting... e.g.- direct bright sunlight vs. somewhat subdued overcast sky illumination. And the color rendition characteristics of a particular digital photo sensor could affect this also in making it more obvious in an exposure. All this beyond the control of the photographer.

Also the smudge at the front is from the jet bridges, the flexible hood is usually full of mildew or just dirt.
rwb2112: I thought it was a great shot and I love the old AAL livery! I've had similar problems with resized photo's and detail effects on third party websites. I use a photoshop software add in suite from a company called Topaz that I use for detailing and contrast adjustments, thanks for sharing your process and photos, I'll get some of my photos up in a day or two and I let me know what you think! Happy holidays!

Like that "paint job" MUCH better than what they have now!
