Hello everybody!

I had some pics rejected and the reason was badangle...which is the worst rejection you can have as you can get crazy looking to everything: grid, ruler, pens...what ever to see if it is leveled  Nuts

For me it look OK  Innocent but I would like to have other opinions...

Leveling a picture only takes a moment, and it should be the first thing you do. Our opinions are just that, if you think you are right, use the appeal function.

JeffM,

I know that it takes just a moment, but from my eyes I see it OK but I can be wrong.
I just wanted to share and have other opinions, and the reupload as the appeal function it is like do nothing. I had one pic during more than one month without response... Sad

Brgrds,

1 looks ok to me
2 looks like you might have used a wide angle lens, hense the poles not looking straight
3 runs downhill from left to right
4 I agree with the screener - it's about the aircraft not the people who make them work.

Regards

You are wrong. Look at the photos. If you learn to use the grid and or ruler you won't have this problem. One month in the appeal queue is not that bad. This topic gets beat to death every few weeks and the result is the same.

BADMOTIVE can be rephrased as "What are you trying to show us here?"

I can only see the first shot making it when you correct it.

JeffM,

So, is there any clue to use the grid? I'm just trying to learn...that's way I'm posting this issue here.

737heavy,

Thanks for your help...I will rotate the third picture a little...On the number 2, I used standard lens but in Madrid the poles aren't a good reference to use to rotate a picture  Sad

I agree that Badcameraangle is a confusing rejection. I got it on this image, subsequently added by Johan:

Badlevel is usually just that, simply align verticals near center. But badangle is something different. I never understood what warrants that rejection. (got it two times, both appealed, both added).




what seems to be the officer, problem?

I like them all despite minor issues that I wouldn't think twice about. But I can see what others are talking about.

There is a fine line between a picture and a photo. The latter seems to be disappearing.

1. cockpit shot - im too distracted by the captains chair and the view out of the window.

2. I find im looking straight over the wing into the distance at the hills when maybe centralising the wing may have been better.

3. again i find myself staring into a big wide open green space with a terminal in the ditance somewhere - if i look hard enough to the right i see an engine and winglet (but only just)

4. I like what you had in mind but the aircraft is too small in the frame and im not too bothered about business men crossing runways.

I would say check your angles and also question your motiv behind the pic, ask yourself "what am i trying to show here" you need a focal point in the picture no.4 was nearly there, had it been a 747 that filled the frame with a business man running across the runway then marks out of ten would have been ten!

There is no such thing as "badlevel". The rejection for "not level" pictures is only:

BADANGLE
The angle of the camera does not seem to be straight compared
to the horizon. In the future, make sure you always hold the
camera absolutely level. This particularly applies to pictures
of aircraft on the ground. For shots of aircraft in flight where
the ground is visible (take-offs and landings in particular),
the general rule is that the camera should be level with the
horizon and the aircraft be at an angle. There may be
exceptions to this rule if the composition of the picture is
unique and having a level horizon would detract from the
aesthetic value of the picture (such cases will be rare).
A good method for checking if the photo is leveled is to check
the verticals in the photo (if there are any) for really being vertical.

Such problems can often be fixed by carefully rotating and
cropping the picture. If you think you have been able to
improve the photos, please re-upload them. Note that we are
still very interested in having these photos in our database,
we only ask that you try to improve the quality of the digital
version of your photos.
