I can't really tell the quality from the screen I'm using right now, but the problem seems to me to be poor cropping on 140669 and 135038, and the last one just doesn't fit right - engine is not completely visible, nor are the lights. I'd say badmotiv for all.

Hi guys, I'm not a photographer and hang out on the tech/ops, but like reading in this photography forum every once in a while. Lately I have got the impression that screeners are getting really tough on the photographer shots. I usually do see why screeners reject the photos because airliners.net material has rised in a predictable quality. However I wanted to ask you guys what's wrong with the 3d photo, "bug splat" one. It the bug splat the reason for removal? One of the beauty of watching interesting photography is the casualty of it, not just perfect beautiful objects. Again, I'm not a photographer but do appreciate good art, or give it a try . Why was this one rejected?

Like I said, check the framing. Peter's shot at least completes the main subject - the hub is complete. If your wing/engine shot had been taken from a few inches higher, or the engine shot zoomed back a tiney bit, they would work better because they would be complete - not just hints.

Symmetry is off. Technically the photo looks fine, but it is just not pleasing to the eye. As Charles noted above it needs cropping, and the bug splat takes away from the potential beauty of the polished metal.
Photo 2 also has potential but needs balance.
Photo 1 is just bad motive. Not a clear shot of the airplanes, more of a family photo album photo.

I find the picture of the leading edge and engine quite pleasing regardless of the bugsplat.
Peter Unmuths pic has ,as stated here above, the necessary symmetry to please the eye. The reflection of the props does lead the eyes to the center off the photo. The illusion is also funny. What the eyes see as the most distant subject is actually the closest to the lens. Makes me dizzy
