Hi all. I am quite a beginner, and just got myself a Canon 10D with a Canon 75-300mm USM lens, and have started shooting a bit, so I'm just posting the 5 first pics I've uploaded so you can have a look and tell me what you think about it! Comments welcome!

And also, how long does it take to be accepted/rejected? It's been over a week now and still nothing. I thought the new policy would make fewer uploads, and faster screening times. Cheers, Philippe

Hi Philippe,

those shots are all pretty good since you just got a new camera, I especially like the last one. What you usually wanna do though, is you want to post them in the forum before you actually upload them, since the other photographers and also screeners themselves will have a look at them and then give you advice on how to alter them further and which one to upload and so on.
As far as the screening goes though, you should check the photo upload stats page http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/photostats.main and then check out which photos (from which date) the screeners are looking at right now. And you know the date you submitted yours, from there you can kind of tell how much longer it might be. Hope this helps a little.

Cheers,
Sebastian

Hi Phillipe

Pic 1 too dark and has a lot of dust spots
Pic 2 has a chance but needs to be sharpened, levelled & needs some extra brightness
Pic 3 again needs to be a bit brighter & sharper
Pic 4 bad motive - the whole plane should be showing
Pic 5 nice photo again needs to be a little sharper and is also sitting too low in the frame so I would guess bad centred

If you can correct the above I think they would stand a chance

good luck

Ian

No. 1: Too dark
No. 2: Not level
No. 3: Probably get badmotive
No. 4: Definitely Bad motive. Not enough aircraft
No. 5: Good photo. Needs a bit of sharpening and levelling.

Picked a very good camera but keep working at the processing.
My opinion, pull them all from the queue. Unlikely they will make it.
With practise, you'll get there.

Damn, you beat me to it, Ian

Hi, thanks for all your help.

What is "badmotive" (for no.3 we see the whloe aircraft) ? And by "level", do you mean it's not straight? I noticed too late the second one was making the ruway look like a slope

I know but it actually was the point! That's sad because I think it looks cool...

Not really sure how to describe it. Little or no motivation for the shot is my understanding.
Try to show the entire aircraft in the photo you take.
The photo might look cool to you, but not to the screeners. I think we all agree that standards here are high and that's why I keep uploading. I want MY standards to be high, also.
Level means the whole photo needs to be straightened.

Pipo,
Badmotive = What are you trying to show us? We can't figure it out.

Level = objects in the image that should be truely vertical or horizontal from the photographer's perspective, (Buildings, poles, horizon, etc.) are not.

Hey! Great shots!

I agree about photo 3 however, too much grass not enough airplane.
The first photo is definitely too dark.

I had the same trouble at an airshow that I went to recently. It was a cloudy day and the F-15 demo team was doing a "low show". Unfortunately, I had a really hard time getting a good exposure of a grey plane against a grey sky. I have a Canon 300D with 75-300 IS lens. Apparently there is no way to manually change the metering method in any mode. I would have liked to have spot metering in manual, but I wound up being stuck with center weighted averaging...which just didn't cut it.

It may have had a lot to do with user error as well...I was in the wrong ISO for most of the day. As I gain more experience as a photographer I have come to realize more and more the shortcomings of my camera setup. Especially when it comes to manual settings. However, I still love my 300D!
