This is a dawn shot, taken at LHR, Ive had similar shots added before, with the same brightness level. I really feel this shot shouldnt be brightened any more or else it will lose its early morning feeling.

Here is a similar early morning shot:

It's dark, and the sky is flat grey. Just bad timing, as it certainly would look much better 30-40 minutes later.

Ryan,

To my eyes it is a little dark, almost too contrasty. The engines and belly are no very well illuminated.

This is the thing with sunrise/sunset some you just have to keep bin because the lights was not quite right.

Cheers

1.) Theres a name mismatch between the name in the profile of the thread starter and the name on the photographs.?!?!?!
2.) Any other reasons given on the rejected shot linked here?

Don't take this the wrong way but you can't compare the accepted shot to yours as the paint is not the same. The SA 747 is white which can look bright in almost any condition and worse in sunny weather. The Gulf, I think thats the airline, is a dark and cream paint and would therefore need better light conditions so yes I would say bad dark. Also note the engines on your shot, very dark, while not on the SA 747.

Just my take on that.

Hope that helps.

Your quite correct, Chris Hammorborg is over at my gaff as we speak and we had a few beers last night and posted this thread, so full marks on the discrepancy!

Its Chris's thread and he's asking the questions not me!

sorry for the confusion!

but Chris's question still stands!

Its leveled to the radar tower.

Ah well, I just liked the subject matter a lot, with the morning lineup of planes at the terminals etc. No biggie.



what seems to be the officer, problem?

It was appealed and rejected for baddark. Got badangle first but it's actually levelled. No matter though, had a similar shot added today which went through without warnings.

If it was submitted with the e-mail adress attached to the photo plugged above then it was not appealed because in the rejected list of this e-mail adress it still shows up as rejected badangle, badpersonal and not as appealed and rejected.
