A380 Belly-View - Does It Stand A Chance?

Hello everyone,

this is one of the (few) better pictures I took of the mighty A380 during his visit to Hamburg.

As far as I know belly-views are not that popular here on ANet, so my question is: Does it stand a chance of being accepted?

Your opinions would be very helpful!

Thanks in advance! Big grin

Best Regards,
Fabian/PositiveClimb

Hi Fabian,
technically it looks fine to me.
My personal opinion is that it´s a great shot and i expect to meet it again somewhere among the Top of the last 24/48 pictures.

best regards,

Denis



That's it! You people have stood in my way long enough. I'm going to clown college!

I like it.. You beautifully see the enormous wingsize of the A380.
The 2 clouds are making it interested instead of a boring blue sky.

Regards,
Leon

Thanks for all your comments, guys!

As I already said in another thread most of the photos I took of the A380 were rather dark and 'flat' because of being backlit, therefore I was really happy when I saw that this one was properly exposed and of good quality...

So maybe one of the screeners could say a word or two about uploading this pic?!

Would be real nice! (of course, all other comments are also welcome!!!)

Best Regards,
Fabian/PositiveClimb

If I came across this shot I would leave it for Johan. I would reject it, but I know others would like it, and it would probably get the hits, so I would defer to the boss.

Hi Royal, thanks for your comment!

Can I ask on why you would reject it? Because of the motiv (belly-wise  Wink ) or is the photo lacking in other issues?

Just want to see if I can improve it!

Thanks again!

Best regards,
Fabian/PositiveClimb

I wanted to clarify my remarks.

Fabian - the shot is fine, but to my eye it looks odd, like fitting a square peg in a round hole.

But that is my opinion. "Belly shots" are always welcome, assuming they meet the other criteria needed to successfully upload a picture here.

Even though I think the photo looks awkward I am part of a large team, and my opinion is only one amongst 30 screeners.

The shot has a good chance of making it, and I am sure if it did it would be very popular!

Good luck.

I know where Royal is coming from. I think it's the proportions of the aircraft - they don't lend themselves easily to a 3:2 frame, with all that space off to the sides.

That being said, I think it's interesting enough to be in the DB.

I agree with Royal. We encourage new angles, and those belly views can be very effective.

I have my concerns with this one (like Royal). I think it needs to be bang-on square to the frame to be a *great* shot. I would ensure several screeners got to see it before an accept/reject. Ultimately it may be for Johan to decide where to go.

I imagine that given your contraints at the event, you have done an excellent job of capturing an unusual angle.

Hi again,
i thought about Royals and James comments, maybe you could try an aspect ratio of 4:3 and some real tight cropping, this could kill some wasted space on the sides.

How about this one? Should it stay or should it go?

Hey guys,

sorry to bring this up again, but somehow I am obsessed with this photo  Wink ...

I think I know where you are coming from regarding the proportions.

So I did what Denis proposed and resized the photo to get rid of the dead space on the sides...

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/P8271489_fourthirds.jpg

What do you think, does it look better this way?

Thanks for your help!

Best Regards,
Fabian/PositiveClimb

P.S.: Screeners, don't be afraid, I won't leave them both in the queue!  Wink

Fabian,
i´d say, it certainly does look better, let´s see how Royal likes it.

Hi Denis,

thanks for your reply!

Yes, I'm really interested in hearing what the screeners think about the new crop  scratchchin 

By the way: Lukas, great shot!

That wing size is incredible! The wings dwarf the rest of the plane from that angle.

I saw your other thread with these Hamburg photos. I have to say that although this shot is incredibly striking, I preferred the third one in that list, where the plane was shot from underneath but was coming more at you. Now I can't find the discussion but you should definitely submit that.

Just my two cents.
